Ancient yogis were famed for their ability to live in solitude, to exist in peace with nature, and to turn into raccoons whenever they were near a garbage can. Transform yourself into a beacon of stretchy peace with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five yoga classes at Beloved Yoga (up to an $80 value) at either of their locations, in Reston or Great Falls.
This community-focused, flow-based yoga center boasts a plethora of calming to rigorously bendy sessions steeped in the mind-body-spirit trifecta. All fitness levels are welcome, from those only familiar with the sedentary couch pose to those fluent in back-bending crane-warrior stances. Fledgling flexibles can ease into beginners yoga, focusing on fundamental moves and proper alignment, and those with a foundation of supple stretchiness can nonviolently tackle Vinyasa Two, a session concentrated on more vigorous movement linked with sun salutations and hat doffs to the moon. Both the Reston and Great Falls locations offer a variety of classes and class times for pliable aspirants and their limberness-seeking limbs.
