Yoga is a much easier way to exercise both mind and body than testing Einstein's theory of relativity by racing a beam of light. Avoid a science-related sprain with today's Groupon to Be Moved Studio in Lawrence. Choose between the following options:
• For $19, you get five drop-ins for yoga or 5Rhythms movement classes (up to a $60 value).
• For $39, you get 10 drop-ins for yoga or 5Rhythms movement classes (up to a $120 value).
The serenity gurus at Be Moved Studio embrace a holistic philosophy that encourages growth for the body, spirit, and chakra with a schedule of free-flowing yoga and 5Rhythms classes. The yoga classes require no experience and are taught by master pretzel impersonators, some boasting more than 25 years of teaching experience. On Mondays, Hatha Yoga students develop strength, fluidity, and stillness, and Thursday sees perfect-postured pupils move Beyond Yoga with bodywork, breath development, and personalized, monogrammed asanas.
Set against a sonic backdrop of motivational music, 5Rhythms participants move through five natural motion types—flowing, staccato, chaotic, lyrical, and stillness—in an attempt to evoke healing, creativity, and more convincing seaweed impersonations. Sunday's Sweat Your Prayers class introduces swayers to the five rhythms, and Wednesday's Waves class builds on those foundations in the hopes of awakening the body's beats through movement.
