Ancient yogis were famed for their ability to live in solitude, to exist in peace with nature, and to turn into raccoons whenever they were near a garbage can. Transform yourself into a beacon of stretchy peace with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a five-class pass (a $50 value) at Breathing Room, located in the heart of downtown New Haven's Federal Plaza.
Breathing Room offers yoga practitioners of all skill levels the chance to increase flexibility, reduce stress, and maintain natural joint mobility, while developing mind-body balance through various styles of yoga. With today's deal, guests can bend bodies in five different yoga classes offered at various times each week. Classes take place every day and usually last between 60 and 90 minutes, or roughly the time it takes to microwave a Twinkie. Break the exercise ice with the gentle-flow yoga class, a good place for beginners to learn the fundamentals of yoga while slowly flowing through postures and focusing closely on alignment and body structure. For more seasoned stretchers, Breathing Room offers power-flow yoga, a demanding, faster-flowing class, concentrating on strength and heat within the body.
Breathing Room's intimate studio atmosphere, accented by an exposed brick wall and dimly lit hanging orbs, provides a tranquil temple for yogis and yoginis to engage in a dynamic practice. Like oral surgery, all classes are available on a drop-in basis, and mats, blankets, and props are available for use at no additional charge.
