Bikram Yoga Chicago
It’s all good to break a sweat while breaking it down on the dance floor, but chances are you won’t experience the same degree of detox that 90 minutes of Bikram yoga (practiced in a 105-degree room) offers. The last savasana (that amazing, much-deserved rest at the end of class) takes place just before midnight. Then enjoy free healthy drinks and snacks with your sweaty compadres. 2736-A N Clark St (773-348-9642, 105f.com). 10:30–midnight. $17.
Candlelight Yoga with Kim Wilcox
Take a spiritual journey guided by candlelight and Aylon Samouha’s live guitar performance. Yoga instructor Kim Wilcox finds inspiration in the Anusara (guided by the intention of aligning with the Divine) and Forrest yoga (all about awakening the senses), so get ready to liven up your spirit this evening. Sign up at mokshayoga.com. Moksha Riverwest, 700 N Carpenter St (312-942-9642, mokshayoga.com). 7–9pm. $20–$25.

Yogic New Year’s Eve
Sign up for kundalini yoga at the Loop’s annual NYE party and you’ll actually fulfill that fantasy of spending the night in a beautiful downtown ballroom. But rather than wearing your ball gown, come in comfy, casual clothes; the only bottle you’ll need to bring is one full of water for your practice. Enjoy a double-gong bath, followed by an organic veggie dinner, mantra dancing and drumming. You must pre-register as walk-ins are not accepted. Fine Arts Building, tenth floor, 410 S Michigan Ave (312-922-4699, shaktakaur.com). 7:30pm–1am. $54 per person, $100 per couple.
