Most people hate exercise; the mere suggestion of it induces the response of a repeated swift right to left swing of the head, followed by excuses about having to do the dishes or keeping your promise to teach Larry your pet llama the Macarena. However, exercise can be enjoyable especially with today’s Groupon: five hot yoga sessions at Hot Yoga Studio for R85.
Hot yoga is a high energy, invigorating series of yoga poses that promote balance, strength, flexibility and overall wellness. The room is heated allowing a deeper safer stretch, promoting heavy sweating allowing you to detox and cleanse. The trained yoga Yoda’s at Hot Yoga Studio will hone your body into a mean-clean-Kumbaya-loving machine.
This popular form of yoga does not require any experience or level of fitness, thereby making it fun and challenging. Consisting of different asanas or postures, hot yoga will warp you from an eagle to a locust to a downward facing dog all while ridding your body of tension and stress. You will feel lighter and calmer, even allowing that taxi to cut you off in traffic and smiling at the saleslady who always gives you the “you can’t afford that” stink-eye.
Although, not proven to help llamas with their dancing skills, regular practice of this hot yoga series will help promote your concentration, patience and mental clarity. Hot yoga is devised to provide you with inner peace and tranquillity, thankfully you will not have to be exposed to anyone donning legwarmers and dancing like a, well, maniac to “Maniac”. Sportsmen also swear by the healing properties of this trendy exercise routine. An added bonus to hot yoga is the amount of calories burned per session; this varies from person to person, but estimates range between 500g and 1250g depending upon intensity of practice. This Groupon will leave you with a healthier body and mind.
Yoga fact: A yoga student in India gained popularity after finding a booklet for hot yoga in an old peppermint tea machine. He then stored it in his hamster’s cheek pockets for safe keeping until he unveiled his find at a mass meeting in the town hall.
