Yoga challenges the mind and body without the violence and hurt feelings of full-contact chess. Steer clear of over-aggressive pawns with today's Groupon: for $58, you get a 10-class pass at Bend Yoga in Charlottesville (a $130 value). Bend Yoga's engaging, restorative yoga classes help students work toward holistic fitness at all stages of life, from children ages 6 weeks–18 years to new and expecting mothers during classes six days a week. The studio’s certified instructors strive to make families feel welcome and relaxed in all sessions, including one-hour Sweet Peas classes, where newborns and mothers bond and mamas learn relaxation techniques and practice pelvic- and abdominal-muscle exercises as the soothing practice helps babes conquer colic, fussiness, and bat-like sleeping habits. Toddling yogis ages 2 1/2–4 years old can expend excess energy in 45-minute Grasshoppers classes that feature lively music, games, and yoga poses, and teens learn to healthfully handle stress and anxiety caused by standardized homecoming dances through breathing exercises and restorative postures.
