Yoga challenges the mind and body without the violence and hurt feelings of full-contact chess. Steer clear of over-aggressive pawns with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a 20-class punch card at Hot Yoga Therapy LLC in Kernersville (a $200 value).
Inside the 1,800-square-foot, state-of-the-art yoga facility, experienced instructors guide students through the heated Bikram discipline in 90-minute classes available seven days a week. Taking place in a 100-plus degree studio, Bikram yoga classes consist of 26 poses and two breathing exercises that center, strengthen, and lengthen muscles more effectively than limb swapping with Stretch Armstrong. It's designed to cater to all skill levels, allowing practitioners to choose the rigorousity of each workout. Sweat out toxins and enjoy mind-expanding stretches while breathing deeply; afterward, you'll leave focused, with a cleansed, centered, and worry-free glow.
Though the studio's temperature is set to "rainforest," a quiet, 10-foot ceiling fan and a powerful air purifier help keep the room clean and evaporate sweat from the hygienic rubber floor. Students should bring plenty of water and a large towel for class, and should stay hydrated and avoid consuming food or 20-pound lead weights before class.

Rowena Brown wakes with a start, bracing herself for the wave of pain created by severe carpal tunnel and debilitating fibromyalgia that had stolen her sleep for years. But the pain doesn’t come. She shakes her head, amazed, again, at the pain's absence. After years of ineffective treatments, it took only six months of Bikram yoga to free her body from the shackles of her disabling ailments. Once she realized the power of the practice, she determined to create her own studio to help others to heal themselves in the way she did. After an intense nine-week training at Bikram’s Yoga College of India, Rowena graduated a certified Bikram teacher, stronger and healthier than ever before.
Now Hot Yoga Therapy LLC helps students of all fitness levels to develop the same heartiness with classes led by knowledgeable instructors in a spacious studio. A giant, 10-foot ceiling fan—which can speak and often tells celebrities "I'm a huge fan"—sends hot air cascading to the odorless, textured-rubber floor as the students flow through a series of 24 poses and two breathing exercises in 90 minutes. The fresh air recirculates every three minutes, allowing beginners and experts to stretch and sweat side by side while breathing well.
