Yoga awakens the body and spirit, allowing yogis to forecast oncoming weather, traffic patterns, and nonwinning lottery numbers, such as "four" and "peanut." Tune and tone your body with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one month of unlimited yoga at Borrowed Earth Emporium (up to a $50 value).
In its upstairs yoga studio, Borrowed Earth Emporium’s yogis guide students through the practice of Ujjayi, a diaphragm-based breathing technique complemented by a series of poses to relax both body and mind. A dozen classes led by 10 trained instructors vary in difficulty and intensity, creating an environment appropriate for both newbies and sentient Slinkies. A Beginners class is scheduled twice a week, stocking incipient pose libraries with fundamentals including the downward dog, child’s pose, and toll-booth operator. A power-focused course adds vigorous moves for experienced warriors, and a Lunch Express class condenses sun salutations and a power series into a workday-friendly 45 minutes. Patrons perform their poses in a spacious, loft-like studio boasting preserved hardwood floors, exposed rafters, and a case stuffed with jewel-studded trophies from past yoga tournaments.
