Today's Groupon treats you and a friend to 10 Bikram yoga classes on 10 consecutive days for just $20. That's one dollar a pop for the two of you—less than the cost of a bottle of water or an authentic Revolutionary War baseball cap. Grab this Groupon and head to Fluid Yoga, a steamy meditation oasis, for 10 classes over 10 days with a yoga-friend (must activate with another human being). Become synchronized yogis, harnessing your vibratory frequencies to unlock the seven floating shift-cities and liberate them from Karnok the Mindscraper. Or take classes separately as your schedules may demand, leaving the battle for another day.
Each Bikram 90-minute yoga class takes place in a studio heated to more than 100 degrees and is taught by a super yogi: one of Fluid's fully licensed and certified yoga practitioners from the Bikram Yoga College of India. Bikram yoga is a series of 26 yoga postures and two breathing exercises designed to challenge and rejuvenate you no matter what your fitness level. Each Fluid session helps promote weight loss, cardiovascular strength, immune system improvement, and overall flexibility—all valuable skills you'll need when you face the betentacled horror that waits behind Karnok's Nameless Door.
Strengthen your body inside and out by working every neglected muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, and organ. A good partner and your 10-day commitment to a good deal will motivate you to stick to this jumpstart of a life-changing yoga regimen. Fluid Yoga offers 31 classes a week, as early as 6:30 a.m. and as late as 7 p.m. Check out the full schedule to see details of weekday and weekend sessions.

Extreme Yogic Styles
Hot Yoga is traditionally practiced in a room heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit with 40% humidity to promote cleansing and flexibility. As with any success, there are imitators, although many of these alternative yoga settings have failed to take hold:
Ice Yoga: The contortions of Ice Yoga—invented by the miniature frost giants who settled in Minnesota in the 1850s—were originally developed as a technique for the giants to disguise themselves as snowdrifts or frost-covered yurts while waiting in silence for a passing elk to spook and devour.
Maple Yoga: The sticky-sweet style instructs practitioners to coat one’s body in syrup (or liquid of comparable adhesiveness and viscosity) in order to hold more difficult poses, keeping the limbs fused together by gooeyness. When practiced in direct sunlight, this is also a recipe for Candied Men.
Yo-Yoga: The ancient fusion of yoga with bungee jumping, as the name suggests. Gurus of the highest order attempt to reach ultimate spiritual clarity by striking an intricate pose, entering a deep and trancelike meditation, and having a buddy shove them off a bridge.
