In case you needed another reason to get bendy with sweaty, toned lasses in booty shorts, now it’s practically free. Recently launched in Vancouver, the Passport to Prana allows you to take in one class at all 40 participating studios for $30. Here are the hottest of the hot.
This North Van studio’s Tragically Hips class is worth the commute. Ideal for athletes, the class promises to unlock the potential of your hips and pelvis. (Feel free to use that line on your classmates.) The studio temperature rises to a sizzling 40.5 C, allowing your muscles to ease into a deep stretch. 101 – 260 West Esplanade St., 604-924-9642.
Bikram Commercial Drive
Christian and Andreas, the Zenned-out fellas who run this Commercial Drive hangout, claim that you’ll burn 945 calories – the equivalent of nearly two Big Macs – in just one of their classes. Which means you’d better get to McDonald’s stat. 1109 Commercial Dr., 604-251-9642.
More than just a yoga studio, YYOGA is the ultimate wellness destination. After a signature YHot session, you can detox a little more in the infrared sauna, get acupuncture and a massage, chill out in the lounge, or shop in the eco-boutique. 888 Burrard St., 604-682-3569.
