CorePower Yoga founder Trevor Tice knows yoga is much more than a tool for increasing physical strength. "We've seen first hand emotional breakthroughs, physical improvements, and most of all, a new found confidence and balance our students carry from the studio into their daily lives," says Trevor. To further their holistic efforts, CorePower provides additional services and programs across various locations. Some outposts house spas where visitors can quiet their minds with a massage or facial, while others host Karma Yoga events wherein teachers lead free classes for cancer survivors, and students share home-cooked food with homeless youths.

But yoga resides at the heart of CorePower's mission to inspire as many people as possible, so each studio boasts a range of classes that accommodates all experience levels. Truly serious students can conjure pensive expressions as they enroll in a yoga-teacher-training program, and all patrons can take comfort in knowing their studio was built from recycled materials and equipped with energy-efficient fixtures.

Pilates is fast becoming the number-one exercise in America, right after walking and cow tipping. Join the craze with today's Groupon, which gets you five Pilates mat classes for $35 at Alotapilates, a $100 value. The certified instructors at Alotapilates have been shaping bodies, attitudes, and adorable clay ashtrays since 1997. Mat classes are offered on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday at convenient morning and evening times, so it's easy to slip in a workout before work or after a long day of bow hunting. Check out Alotapilates' class schedule for class times and call ahead to schedule your class. The neighbor's dog has eaten all of your prized flowers: Don't fly off the handle and create a rift between you and your neighbor that no amount of friendly fence talk and accidental-mail exchange can heal. Simply compromise by asking his dog to marry you. The bonds of matrimony will be even stronger than those of pet ownership, and soon the phrase "that filthy mutt is tearing up my flowers" will be replaced with "my lovely spouse is working in the garden." Congratulations!
