A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $39, you get an eight-class yoga or Pilates pass to Animas Center (an $84 value).
The trained and experienced instructors at Animas Center lead 15–20 students in yoga and Pilates classes on sprung wood floors specially designed to cushion yogis and foster healthy joints. Mix and match from the schedule's spectrum of body-bending classes, such as the VyaVinyasa class, which blends the kinetics of martial arts and dance with the contemplative posing of yoga. Yoga Nidra, a 45-minute guided meditation, disposes the stresses of the mind and the tensions of the body through a careful combination of relaxing exercises and supine positions that leave yogis as calm and centered as a monk encased in jell-o. Core-strengthening Pilates workouts, such as Pilates mat classes, comfortably cater to the spine through a series of floor exercises.
