Without specially heated rooms, Bikram yoga would have to be practiced on the sides of volcanoes and inside the mouths of dragons. Steamily stretch with today's Groupon: for $59, you get 10 Bikram yoga classes at Yoga 108 (a $150 value).
Yoga 108's staff of local yogis teaches Bikram yoga in a studio dedicated to this popular subset of Hatha yoga. During more than 30 weekly classes, students practice up to 26 unique asanas—or poses—in a toasty room whose heat is designed to benefit the body by increasing its strength, flexibility, and fly-swatting accuracy. Instructors continuously circle the room to give timely feedback and alter students' poses.
Yoga 108's studio facilitates sweating and stretching with a mirrored wall that keeps everyone attentive to their postures, and dark hardwood floors welcome extending limbs like a mailbox welcomes a mailman's hand. Classes last 90 minutes—just long enough to pop the corn kernels sprinkled on the floor before each lesson.
