Yoga is one of the world's oldest forms of exercise, second only to holding the earth on your shoulders. Practice ancient athleticism with today's Groupon: for $35, you get four yoga classes at Awaken Wellness in Columbia (up to a $72 value).
Awaken Wellness cares for its patrons' holistic health with a combination of alternative health services alongside a smorgasbord of yoga classes. The yoga studio's flexible schedule accommodates lunchtime wellness warriors, evening yogis, and gurus whose houses perch on the edge of space and time. Experienced teachers guide each class of about 18 students with a focus on community and human connection alongside careful instruction in the Hatha yoga tradition. Due to the small class sizes, each student receives individualized attention during sessions, allowing for instructors to correct form and provide adjustments for newer or more experienced students. The Gentle Yoga class leads pupils through a lower-impact routine that moves at a relaxed pace, while Yoga 2 concentrates on honing the skills of more experienced students by practicing alignment and delving into more challenging poses, such as the downward-facing Sunday crossword.
