Though sweat indicates a great workout, inward sweating denotes an athlete with true humility. Humble yourself with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a 10-class pass with free mat rental at Ascend Yoga (a $125 value).
A passionate husband-and-wife team of yogis at Ascend Yoga guides small classes of students through hatha yoga's cycles of focused breathing and fluid postures to build strength, flexibility, and inner peace. In addition to traditional asanas, or yoga postures, students explore the complete yogic sciences, including techniques such as meditation, call and response singing, and grooming bedraggled spirit animals. Yogis make sure to explain the purpose of each yogic technique during class, allowing students to further their yoga practice with a heightened sense of purpose.
Students can pick up a free mat to use within the white-bricked walls of the light-flooded studio in 90-minute classes held at Monday through Saturday at 9:15 a.m. and Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Each class is limited to 14 students so that yogis can imbue each participant with individual attention and the ability to crack safes strapped across their backs.
