Like swimming the English Channel or passing a sobriety test, practicing yoga demands precise coordination of breath and movement. Get your body in tune with today's Groupon: for $47, you get one month of unlimited yoga at Bodhisattva Yoga in Brooklyn (a $95 value). Start your month of yoga by August 14 in order to receive this Groupon's full value.
Bodhisattva Yoga's duo of yogis guide intimately sized classes through a signature synthesis of Vinyasa styles. Classes range from the neophyte-friendly kshanti style, which teaches patience and beginner breathing, as well as energetic Ananda flows, which sport upbeat music that makes visitors feel like they've entered a hot club where everyone sits still. The teachers adjust exercises day-to-day to accommodate each group's abilities, gearing their strengthening and toning demonstrations to the class's average capabilities. Comfortable clothes grant ease of movement while yoga mats ($1 rental) make for a comfortable posing session or a delectable after-session snack.
The studio itself resides within a classic Brooklyn brownstone, welcoming visitors with boutique fixtures such as high ceilings, crown molding, and decorative fireplaces, ideal for burning ornamental calories. Though not included in today's Groupon, Bodhisattva Yoga also provides private and corporate sessions, as well as group retreats to the nearby Catskills to couple bendable scenery with bendable bodies.
