Bikram Hot Yoga
If you feel like you’re in need of some serious detoxing, there’s nothing like a Bikram yoga class. Bikram Hot Yoga 305 has the best classes for both newbies and advanced hot yogis. You’ll need to bring a lot of water as the room’s temperature is a whopping 104ºF (40ºC). Sweating is an incredibly healthy process as it allows your body to release more toxins. And while you might feel sticky during the length of the class, when you walk into the cooler outside air, your body will feel renewed.

The instructors are encouraging and compassionate, and after just one class (whether you do a basic class or hang upside down from a piece of cloth), you’ll feel relaxed and ready to take on the world.
