Holding a yoga pose builds strength, discipline, and immunity to motion-sensor devices. Avoid activating alarms with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a 10-class pass (a $100 value) to Blue Moon Yoga and Fitness in Ormond Beach.
The nationally certified yoga and fitness instructors at Blue Moon help bending beginners and buffs alike find physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. Founder Karen Underwood advocates an individualized approach to yoga with an array of classes aimed at matching bodies of all shapes with appropriate poses and routines. Master the fundamentals of Hatha muscle manipulation during a yoga basics hot class, 60–90 minutes, or ponder the contrasting forces of relaxing Vinyasa sequences and demanding core-strengthening exercises in the Yinfusion class. Limber-limbed masters in the transcendental Vinyasa Glow class bask in the glow of flickering candles as they build the necessary agility and flexibility to brawl with their own shadows. Inspect the schedule for times and dates.
Blue Moon's state-of-the-art studio is heated with infrared radiant warmth and uses all 95 of its degrees to melt tension, decrease risk of strain and frostbite, and aid detoxification. The center is dedicated to creating a clean and welcoming environment for all who enter, so the air in each room is continually scrubbed and buffed by an ionic fresh-air exchange system, and the antimicrobial z-mat flooring eases joint pain while securing the perimeter against roving battalions of germs.
Blue Moon Yoga and Fitness
Registered at the 200-hour and 500-hour level, yoga instructor and studio owner Karen Cutrona-Underwood leverages abundant experience when leading the staff in helping others find peace and power through heated, Vinyasa-based yoga classes. She raises the temperature of her 3,600-square-foot facility to a detoxifying 95 degrees through an infrared-radiant-heat system balanced with an ionic fresh-air exchange to keep the air as hot and fresh as the royal family of Bel Air. Karen also outfits her studio with anti-microbial Z-mat flooring to support joints as students flow through sequences of strengthening twists, binds, and balances. Blue Moon's certified instructors modify these sequences to help accommodate practitioners of all abilities. When the team isn't guiding yogis through exercises, they can be found supporting local nonprofits through efforts such as canned-food drives.
