Ancient yogis were famed for their ability to live in solitude, to exist in peace with nature, and to turn into raccoons whenever they were near a garbage can. Transform yourself into a beacon of stretchy peace with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-month membership of unlimited classes (a $100 value) at Ananda Yoga in Hadley.
Ananda Yoga’s certified instructors expel negative energy and boost flexibility with specialized classes suited for bendable bodies of all ability. Torsos twist through flowing movements in Vinyasa classes, which focus on poses timed to the metronomic tic of rhythmic breathing. A comfortably tepid studio space maintains a temperature between 85–90 degrees during heated Vinyasa sessions, warming muscles quickly, preventing injury, and heating shirt tags until they purr. With 18 classes scheduled per week, novice toe-touchers can elongate appendages during a beginner yoga or intro to Vinyasa class, while seasoned yogis can try to lick their elbows with more advanced positioning. Free parking and included mats accommodate busy schedules and matless sun saluters.
Rust-colored walls and Earth toned décor welcome guests into the warm belly of Ananda Yoga's studio. Remodeled in 2010, the main room sports a sunny shade of eco-friendly paint that coats the expansive studio space in warm, vibrant energy.
