Though gym class sit-and-reach scores hardly reflect flexibility, they do provide valuable insight into limb length, torso girth, and whether or not a student can smooch his or her own knee boo-boos. Bend your body for more rational reasons with today’s deal: for $35, you get a one-month membership at Bikram’s Yoga College of India – North Vancouver (a $179.20 value, including tax).
True to its signage, Bikram’s Yoga College of India flows through the traditional 26 asanas, or postures, of Bikram yoga during each and every 90-minute session. Classes take place in a room with the thermostat cranked to a humid and detoxifying 37 degrees Celsius to help sweat out toxins, strengthen muscles from neck to toe, reheat leftover pizza, and forge new flexible frontiers. As the sweat beads begin to run, disciplined yogis focus on maintaining rhythmic, deep breathing. In addition to empowering the mind, muscles, and soul, Bikram yoga provides intertwined perks such as the stimulation of organs and joints, the increase of fresh oxygen flow, and a boost in the number of essential Gumby platelets in the bloodstream.
Newcomers and veteran yogis alike can take comfort in the warm, caring instruction of Bikram’s Yoga College of India’s calm, mentally limber teachers, all of whom are thoroughly trained in the Bikram tradition. Before dropping in for a sauna soiree, feel free to squeeze in an online study session of all 26 postures. Rental mats and towels are not included in the Groupon but can be rented or purchased at the studio.
