Yoga, like an unmelted tuna melt or a lover's quarrel over how many marbles are in this jar, is often more satisfying when heated. Defrost mind-body transcendence with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a five-class pass (a $100 value) to Fuel the Soul in Merrick. Fuel the Soul is an infrared-heated hot yoga studio that hosts six hot yoga classes each week in its mirrored, toasty sanctuary. Body-benders can roast away up to 600 calories an hour—the equivalent of 72 goat-lifts—while boosting their strength and flexibility. Spandex-sporting pretzel impersonators can also twist at more tepid temperatures during unheated classes such as prenatal yoga and mat Pilates, or they can engage in a wellness-minded intenSati cardio workout recently featured on Dr. Oz. All five classes must be used within 30 consecutive days; see here for a full schedule.
There are few online reviews available for Fuel the Soul, but the studio was recently featured in an article on Examiner.com:
- It’s a small little studio that you can easily pass on Merrick Road. But it’s a big mistake if you do. – Susan Kasper
Fuel the Soul
A subtle heat spreads throughout Fuel the Soul, The muscle-melting energy seeps into muscles, coaxing tension away. This brand of heat comes from a system that emits infrared rays, capable of penetrating deeper into tissues and detoxifying the patrons. The heat emanates from lamps that, according to Greg, are identical to those used by surgeons in neonatal hospital units and fast-food line-cooks in NASA space vessels. Customers can reap the heat's benefits, which include a faster metabolism and easier healing, simply steeping in the far-infrared sauna.
