What You'll Get
The first master yogis bent themselves like twist-ties around their enemies, smothering them with relaxing vibes. Today's Groupon offers a similar chance to defeat work-related stress. For $35, you get five classes at Bhava Yoga Studio on Central Avenue (a $75 value). This deal is good for any 60- or 90-minute single class; session classes require prior registration and are not eligible.
The ample schedule, with multiple classes every day of the week, prevents you from having to painfully contort your day just to make a class. Bhava Yoga Studio's impassioned instructors remix pliable poses from the relatively new Anusara tradition into a variety of specialized classes. Most importantly, all are welcome, from yoga veterans malleable as warm wax to neophytes unable to touch their toes.
Anusara couples precise physical alignments with an adherence to larger philosophical goals, such as fostering positive, affirming communities and resolving the Münchhausen Trilemma. Different poses unblock dammed channels of energy, and deep breathing suffuses the fatigued spirit with renewed vigor, just like blowing into a Nintendo cartridge.
There are no reviews of the basic yoga classes, but Bhava Yoga Studio features some impassioned student and industry testimonials about the studio's immersion teachings:
- Deeply grounded and knowledgeable from years of meditation and yoga practice, Bea's teaching is infused with sensitivity and love. Blessed with the gift of intuitive guidance, she creates a sacred space that encourages personal transformation and connectedness in the community. – Desiree Rumbaugh, International Anusara Yoga Instructor
- I have noticed how much of the yoga experience and knowledge I’m bringing to my business, including staff meetings, communications and general ability to see the good in all situations. Meditation has deepened for me immensely… – Elissa, student
