The first master yogis bent themselves like twist-ties around their enemies, smothering them with relaxing vibes. Now that all of your human and animal enemies are dead or in exile, today's Groupon offers a chance to defeat work-related stress. For $30, new clients can get five regular yoga classes at Atma Center on 2319 Lee Road (a $65 value). Local CityVoters named the Cleveland Heights center one of the top three Best Yoga Studios in 2009.
Atma Center's classes reflect the techniques of Satyananda yoga, a combination of classic yoga traditions adroitly adapted to accommodate the needs of modern and futuristic persons, no matter their age or fitness level. It is also a teacher-training program, so you can be sure Atma's highly trained instructors have accumulated many a hour of individualized in-class wisdom and successfully squeezed through the awfully tight yoga-instructor rites of passage (pass-throughable by only the nimblest and most compassionate of bodies).
Your Satyananda-based classes will stretch muscles, increase flexibility and strength, relieve stiffness and pain, sort out mental stress, and even help reduce symptoms of disease or self-diagnosed hypochondria. Different poses unblock dammed channels of energy, and deep breathing suffuses the fatigued spirit with renewed vigor, just like blowing into a Nintendo cartridge. Finally become flexible enough to eat your food with your feet and touch your earlobes together. Once you attend your first class at Atma, you must use all remaining classes within 60 days. Check the class schedule on Atma's homepage and drop in to get started.
CityVoters placed Atma Center among the top three Best Yoga Studios in 2009 and 2007. FutureHeights listed the center as one of the Best Places to Get Fit in 2007 and the Best Place to Treat Your Body in 2006. Six Lilaguide users give it four stars.
