If you're not into the idea of working out in a noisy, crowded gym, try YogaWorks Fairfax instead. This yoga studio feels more like a spa than a fitness center. From the serene lounge stocked with high-end yoga couture to the cold, lavender-scented towel that instructors hand out to each student after class, every aspect of the studio is designed to make your Bikram yoga experience a pleasant one.
Even if you've never tried Bikram before, you're welcome to come to the signature Hot 90. The 90-minute yoga class unfolds in a room heated to 106 to 108 degrees, infused with 40% humidity, as per Bikram tradition. The instructor guides pupils through the typical 26-posture sequence with two distinct breathing exercises woven throughout. The pace of the flow and the added heat work together to build stronger muscles and help students sweat out toxins.
