A good sense of balance helps one to stabilize muscles, focus mentally, and avoid traffic jams by tightrope walking above them. Rise above the gridlock of life with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get three classes of your choice at Body Kneads Yoga in Cranston (up to a $54 value).
Owner Lisa Golde and her staff of experienced instructors mold pliant participants of all levels into a miscellany of poses and postures during myriad yoga sessions within Body Kneads Yoga’s clean, comfortable studio. Ninety-minute classes such as the mellow flow and beginner Vinyasa flow ($15) allow newbies to spread their yoga wings next to fully soaring practitioners, while the two-hour integrative flow ($18) blends more intense physical poses with calming visualizations of shapeshifting from pretzels to pretzel buns. Hit up a morning power-hour Ashtanga mix class ($12) for an intermediate steeping in Ashtanga’s series of poses. The Shanti room bestows a room-temperature climate upon benders, while the 85-degree Rasa room ignites the gamma rays of caloric arson during heated sessions of Forrest yoga, drawing out increased flexibility in formerly taut muscles.
Body Kneads Yoga encourages patrons to bring their own towels, water, and mats to class, but also rents and sells all necessities in the studio boutique (mat rental, $1; towel, $2) that are not included with this Groupon. To further aid in muscle-to-rubber-band conversion, blocks, blankets, and other stretch-aiding props are provided free of charge.
