Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often, those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow." Reach that shelf with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one month of unlimited drop-in yoga classes at Charm City Yoga (a $40 value), valid at three locations in Baltimore and one in Towson.
Charm City's founder Kim Manfredi has instructed the Baltimore Ravens since 2004 and brings her 22 years of mat experience to courses that range from beginner-friendly Level 1 classes to advanced Level 3s. In beginner-yoga classes, a slow pace and careful verbal instructions impart the basics of breath awareness, mental concentration, and dodgeball mastery. Charm City’s signature Hot Vinyasa–style classes take place in 85- to 90-degree rooms, designed to loosen up ropey limbs to make stretches deeper, more effective, and more impressive to any inflexible invisible friends you may have. Other styles taught at Charm City include Ashtanga, which emphasizes dynamic postures, and prenatal yoga for those stretching for two.
Voted Best Yoga Center in Baltimore for the last five years by the Baltimore City Paper, Charm City's classes keep bodies toned and limber while storing minds' worries in a drawer alongside spare change and shrunken heads. Check the schedule to find classes (held from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.)—this Groupon gets you access to one class per day. There’s no need to register—you can drop in to the classes of your choice, just like you do at your old elementary school.
