Lexicographers have long been stymied by the word funky, given the various potential definitions, which range from "outlandishly vulgar," to "exceedingly flexible." Today's deal exemplifies the latter: for $39, you get two months of yoga classes at Funky Door Yoga Polk Street (up to a $300 value).
Funky Door Yoga's impassioned instructors employ pliable poses from the Bikram tradition, bestowing strength and flexibility while priming the different organs of the body to awake and do their groovy thing. Classes take place in a wide-open studio, heated up to 100-degrees, infusing each move with additional penetrating power. Each class lasts 90 minutes, during which time toxins are flushed from the body system like eternally sleeping goldfish. The studio offers a flexible schedule with morning, afternoon, and evening classes during the week and on weekends.
Funky Door Yoga's brightly painted storefront on Polk Street gives some hint of the studio's philosophy, which is to encourage lifelong health and wellness through fun. The workouts are deep and rigorous, but the environment is upbeat and humor inspired, so that practicing yoga never feels like a chore on par with taking out the trash, reading, or practicing yoga in an un-fun environment. The classes are for beginners and advanced students alike, and first timers are welcomed with open, perspiring arms. Grab a Groupon and prepare to shed all the stress, tension, and reality television your skin has absorbed over the last decade.

Funky Door Yoga Polk Street
After walking through the studio’s namesake entryway, visitors to Funky Door Yoga Polk Street are greeted by the grunts of Bikram practitioners carried on waves of steamy heat. The stretch dojo's seven-day schedule boasts early-morning, afternoon, and evening classes that take place in a classroom stoked to up to 105 degrees, the perfect temperature for facilitating flexibility or melting a corporate rival's ice statue in effigy. Students run through Bikram Choudhury’s 26 poses that pique muscles, organs, veins, and ligaments while the sweltering heat flushes toxins from the body. After a 90-minute session, students can hop into one of Funky Door Yoga Polk Street's showers, or down a bottle of water or sports drink available for purchase. The studio also stocks rentable mats and towels for greenhorn yogis not quite experienced enough to levitate.
The bright studio helps students fine-tune posework with wall-to-wall mirrors, and the expansive floor space affords enough space to execute even the most complex poses. Two nearby parking lots and metered parking afford convenient parking for car-toting students.
