Physical fitness is a lot like mental fitness: it’s challenging to maintain, difficult to measure, and essential for lifting tractor tires during strongman checkers. Put mind over matter and matter on your mind with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a five-class pass (an $85 value) at Body & Soul of Kansas City, located on East Fifty-Ninth Street. Classes are scheduled in the morning and evening hours throughout the week.
At Body & Soul’s urban neighborhood studio, dedicated and trained instructors lead a variety of motion machinations energized by yoga, Zumba, NIA, Awareness through Movement, and Pilates techniques. Available classes include three levels of Vinyasa yoga—each designed with posture, breathing, and floor posing in mind—as well as specialized pre- and postnatal yoga classes that prep expectant moms for the big day and help new moms get reacquainted with their toes. Other options include Latin-inspired dance cardio in Zumba and nonimpact cardio workouts ripe with comprehensive movements set to upbeat, beat-laden music.
