Stretch and strengthen safely with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get five walk-in yoga, Pilates, or Zumba classes at Body Works Yoga & Pilates in Floral Park (a $100 value).
A brand-new studio, Body Works Yoga & Pilates whips clients into shape with a packed schedule of yoga, Pilates, and Zumba classes. Certified professional instructors lead all 60- to 75-minute sessions, designed to increase strength, flexibility, and empathy for rubber bands. Vinyasa, Hatha, and prenatal yoga, as well as specific beginner classes, cater to yogis of all experience levels, and core-focused Pilates classes strengthen and tone. Drawing on Latin-inspired dance moves for fun and effective cardio, Zumba may inspire a newfound affinity for postworkout siestas. The spacious studio boasts soothing cream-colored walls, large windows, and a toy- and book-filled childcare center with complimentary babysitting available during certain weekday-morning classes.
