Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a grendel. Bend and stretch sans bloodshed with today's Groupon: for $29, you get five yoga classes at Breathing Space Yoga Studio (up to a $60 value). Choose from the following locations: Bedford, Truro, and Upper Tantallon.
Breathing Space molds muscles and tones trapeziuses with a batch of stress-siphoning classes. Led by founder Jenny Kierstead, who received a Women of Excellence Award from the Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and Development, the studio's expert instructors demonstrate the proper methods for twisting and arching, nudging their students into posture-perfecting poses that don't require saying cheese. Classes cater to a broad range of experience levels, tastes, and needs. Core Yoga addresses lower-back pain, Family Yoga welcomes youthful yogis, Yin Yoga targets tension relief, and Detox Flow cleanses the body after a series of mud-pie-eating contests. Hot Flow classes turn up the heat for high perspiration and increased muscle malleability, giving customers the flexibility they need to finally read the back tattoo they got in college.
Breathing Space places a strong focus on recycling and using allergy-friendly products. Massage linens are laundered in non-toxic detergent, and employees polish the studio's aura with all-natural cleaners.
