The word yoga derives from the Sanskrit root yuj meaning to control, to unite, or to achieve better paperclip impersonations. Master muscle mimicry with today's Groupon: for $24, you get four yoga, dance, or wuji qigong sessions at Breathing Room (up to a $48 value) in Delmar.
Breathing Room's laid-back instructors lead 60-minute yoga, dance, and wuji qigong sessions that relax the respiratory system and restore balance to busy lives. Escape a feather-ruffling reality with multilevel yoga classes for adults, hatchlings ages 5 and up, or the whole brood. During each session, supportive instructors suggest alternate ways to practice, lending a helpful appendage to students who seek improved flexibility, strength, or ability. Prenatal yoga prepares unborn benders for a flexible future, and kids' yoga builds balance for more symmetrical somersaults (age 5–7 or 8–10). Build strength and the familial bond by inviting a pack member to family yoga or family Zumba (each additional family member counts as an additional session use). Belly-dance classes and Zumba classes shake off inhibitions and encourage unabated abdominal action, releasing type-A muscles from their daily to-do lists.
Natural light streams into Breathing Room's bay windows, illuminating trained teachers as they unfurrow unibrows and harness mouth winds during wuji qigong workshops. Students are encouraged to bring their own mats, but can rent one for $1.
