[ADV] Bikram Yoga Harbourfront
Thursday, 12 Apr 2012
Imagine burning 750 calories in just 90 minutes. No, you won’t be running 10km in the brutal Singapore heat, you’ll just be stretching it out, yogic-style, in a 40 degrees celcius room.
Sounds easy? Bikram Yoga Harbourfront offers 90 minutes classes consisting of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. And yes you will lose those calories – time to get moving!
We know – exercising in a heated room isn’t all too attractive, but this heat not only protects your muscles by allowing for a deeper stretch, it also detoxifies the body by allowing you to sweat out toxins.
And for those who don’t believe yoga can provide a complete cardiovascular workout – prepare to eat your words. The heat helps to increase your heart rate for a better cardio workout, while the second half of class helps you to shed fat – it’s like interval training at the gym… but fun!
New to Bikram yoga? We’re about to wow you. The sequence of 26 postures is scientifically designed to work every muscle, ligament, tendon, and joint in your body. It then restores your system by pumping oxygenated blood all around your body into every organ and fibre.
The incredible results include improved posture (listen up, slouchers!), muscle and joint flexibility, increased concentration and energy level, and overall rejuvenation. If you’re nodding off in the office right now, this could well be your salvation.
Ok, so you’re interested, but you’re afraid of looking ridiculous trying to hold your pose. We totally get first-time jitters, so relax! Everyone else will be too busy sweating it out to even notice you struggling to keep your balance. Bikram is also designed for designers – have a sports injury? Think you’re too old? No such thing!
To make things even more enticing, Bikram Yoga Harbourfront is offering a 10 day trial for just $50 to new members. No advanced booking needed, but it’s recommended you turn up 30 minutes before a session for first-time registration.
