Yoga teaches people how to sustain poses while still breathing, a skill most yogis use to live undetected in wax museums. Trick a tourist with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five yoga classes at The Jamar Enlightenment Center in Palm Beach Gardens (up to a $75 value).
The Jamar Enlightenment Center's 90-minute yoga classes lead students through vigorous stretching styles that accommodate students of all skill levels. Jamar, an instructor with more than 20 years of experience in the self-help field, shepherds pupils through Kripalu yoga sessions to help refocus minds with Hatha-style poses and controlled breaths, while modifications and hands-on instruction allow attendees to control the intensity of their practice. Dynamic Vinyasa, stabilizing Hatha, and Zumba and belly dance classes round out the studio's weekly schedule. To ensure that pupils get individualized attention and enough space to make snow angels on the off chance of an indoor blizzard, each class closes its doors after admitting 24 students.
Though The Jamar Enlightenment Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Jamar Enlightenment Center
Founder and lead instructor Jamar has spent more than 25 years empowering students to take control of their lives by sharing his own inner journey through yoga. A certified Kripalu yoga instructor and meditation teacher, Jamar infuses each session of focused breathing and movement with his dedication for seeking the Higher Self. The yoga studio's dark wood flooring, green earth tones, and tranquil lighting cultivate a relaxing environment where students peacefully work their way through the Hatha-style poses paired with meditation and inner reflection, striving to calm the mind's constant nagging about remembering to breathe. The studio hosts more than 30 classes and workshops each month— including Zumba, belly dance, hoop, and tai chi, in addition to yoga—as well as regular presentations from guest speakers. Just beyond the meditation floor lies a metaphysical gallery of books, jewelry, healing stones, and crystals to supplement students' practice.
