Star athletes thrive during the peak of heated competition, which is why most Super Bowls are held in volcanoes. Stretch the limits of your limbs with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five drop-in classes at Hot Yoga (a $90 value).
Hot Yoga specializes in Vinyasa (or flow) yoga, which works by sequencing poses to create a balance between ease (sukha) and effort (sthira) while harmonizing movement, breath, and stock tips. During each session, students will spend 60–80 minutes in rooms heated above 70 degrees, twisting and contorting through a series of postures (asanas) that open chakras, expel toxins, and provide a number of other benefits. Hot Yoga's master instructors work to open up the skeletal and muscular systems stored inside students of all ability levels by administering modifications tailored to each individual's needs. Classes are available every day of the week from as early as 6:15 a.m. to as late as 8:30 p.m.
Though Hot Yoga is one of the largest Vinyasa yoga studios in Washington D.C., prenatal classes are available for those who are pregnant or those who are considering pregnancy (postnatal students are still welcome). Prenatal sessions are held in cool rooms to keep stowaway babies from issuing internal karate kicks. Click here for a complete list of class descriptions.
Four Yelpers give Hot Yoga a four-star average, saying:
- My first time at this place, I had this wonderful instructor who had the most amazing music selection. She played stuff like Purple Rain by Prince and Bjork. I know it seems silly, but that 90 minutes of yoga was the best practice I ever had. It was just transcendental. It was challenging physically but calming emotionally. This was the first and only time when I felt completely caught up in the practice. – Dagny T., Yelp
- The instructors are both challenging and patient, the space itself is well kept and clean and the room is heated, but not Bikram HOT, so I actually end up going there more often than a true Bikram studio, which usually leaves me feeling good, but also in the fetal position. This studio hits the spot if you want to make "warm" yoga a part of your routine. – Chelsea M., Yelp
The Yoga Fusion Studio
At Yoga Fusion, students gather in heated and non-heated studios for 60- to 80-minute stretching sessions that limber up the body, purge toxins from the blood stream, and accelerate the natural healing process. Instructors primarily teach Vinyasa-style yoga, which connects asana through flowing movements supported by deliberate breathing exercises. But students can also aid in their own muscle recovery by reserving massage and bodywork sessions designed to holistically support overall wellbeing.
In addition to yoga lessons, Yoga Fusion's staff unlocks the art of instruction itself, offering both a 200-hour and 500-hour registered-yoga-teacher certification course in accordance with the teaching standards of the Yoga Alliance.
