Astronauts regularly practice yoga to stay limber, modulate their breathing, and control their crippling fear of being eaten by the moon. Emulate the habits of cosmic pioneers with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get 20 yoga classes at Bella Vi Mind Body Spa in Fountain Valley (a $240 value). All 20 sessions must be used within 60 days of the first session.
Bella Vi Mind Body Spa fosters holistic well-being with an extensive selection of yoga classes that include physically rigorous and gentler, more restorative styles. Helping to incinerate calories with 80- to 90-degree temperatures, the studio's signature Vinyasa CardiYoga sessions infuse a dynamic regimen of muscle-lengthening Ashtanga yoga sequences with sporadic bursts of low- and high-intensity cardio that, much like professional games of Monopoly, last between 30 seconds and 2 minutes each. Instructors begin the Hot 60 classes by inching the thermostats as high as 108 degrees before leading students through a sequence of static tableaus, each building strength while honing the sense of balance needed to cross a tightrope in rollerblades. Be Kind Unwind sessions introduce props and injury-friendly Iyengar yoga techniques, ensuring a gentler-paced class that focuses on deep, sustained stretches and calming breathing exercises. With early morning, evening, and witching-hour sessions scheduled throughout the week, Bella Vi Mind Body Spa accommodates students with appointment-laden calendars and pupils who only exist on Tuesdays.
Amid the spa’s earth-toned walls and certifiably alive greenery, Bella Vi's team of massage therapists and skincare specialists unshackle visitors from their daily grinds with facials as well as Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages.
