From coffee to streamed TV, it’s always fabulous to have something in unlimited supply.
So why should yoga be an exception? After all, access to unlimited classes is bound to boost your motivation (let’s be honest, sometimes it can be a struggle to swap the sofa for a fitness sesh).
Which is why today’s Big Deal for three months of Unlimited Summer Yoga at The BodyMind Studio in Finnieston is most welcome.
So now you have no more excuses to nama-stay in and watch Netflix with a glass of Sauvign-om Blanc.
Time to get toned?
This deal gives you the chance to totally rejuvenate your fitness with three months of unlimited yoga at The BodyMind Studio in Finnieston.
The studio specialises in Bikram (hot) yoga, which is very popular and has many health benefits.
Never tried Bikram before? Not to worry, classes are suitable for both total beginners and experienced yogis. During a Bikram session, the room will be heated to forty degrees, creating an addictively intense experience.
Don’t feel daunted by the heat element though. Until you get used to it, you are welcome to take as many breaks as you like. Bikram is all about doing things at your own pace in a supportive atmosphere.
Lovely yoga studio
Tucked away in The Hidden Lane in the heart of Finnieston, The BodyMind Studio is a cute, intimate yoga space.
With room for twenty-four yogis per class, and twenty classes to choose from every week, this studio has now become firmly established in the Bikram Yoga community.
You have a choice of attending either original Bikram classes with spoken instruction or the uber tranquil silent classes (if you’re a beginner, it’s best to start with the spoken sessions).
Classes take place seven days a week with slots to suit most schedules, including almost every evening plus early mornings at weekends.
Your yoga package can take place over three consecutive months of June, July and August or July, August and September.
Bikram classes are very inclusive and suitable for ages 14 to 80.
Benefits of Bikram
If you have never done Bikram before, you will carry out a sequence of postures in a heated and humid room. These postures are designed to strengthen the entire body from head to toe. Novices can try them at their own pace.
Why all the heat though? Essentially, practicing yoga in a hot room increases your pulse rate and metabolism, helping you to burn calories.
Bikram is also said to improve your circulation and blood flow, boost your immune system, improve your flexibility and even help you to detox. As well as this, people find the whole experience to be very healing and calming.
Classes are from sixty to ninety minutes long and are are taught by Bikram-certified teachers. Please arrive twenty to thirty minutes before your class.
What you’ll need
Obviously, you should take comfy clothes suitable for a yoga class. Also, don’t forget a change of clothes for afterwards (you will be sweating a lot), plenty of water, a mat and two bath towels (one for your mat and another if you’d like to shower at the studio).
If you would rather not carry lots of stuff around, you can also hire a mat, towels and water from the studio at £1 per item.
Previous class members have posted enthusiastic praise on The BodyMind Studio’s Facebook page:
‘I love yoga and have been practicing since I was a child. I love the idea of Bikram yoga, but each time I have tried it I found it hard and felt I wasn’t doing the postures correctly as it is taught in such a fast environment. I decided to try Lou’s class last night and absolutely loved it, she made me feel welcome the second I walked through the door. Throughout the practice she was encouraging, checking everyone, explaining reasons for postures all while doing an amazing Bikram class. Can’t wait to go back. A lovely studio and a fantastic teacher. Thank you.’
‘A lovely wee studio with a great vibe, focus and really hot consistent heat, thanks Lou for bringing this hidden gem to the Lane.’
‘Lovely little studio where everyone is welcomed no matter if you are a beginner or more experienced. The atmosphere is supportive and everyone is so nice. It’s like a little yoga family.’
