The first master yogis bent themselves like twist-ties around their enemies, smothering them with relaxing vibes. Now that all of your human and animal enemies are dead or in exile, today's Groupon will help you defeat work-related stress with either one week of unlimited classes ($50) OR a three-class pass ($51) to BYD Austin for $25 (an up to $51 value). If you choose the pass, you must use all of your classes within a year of the first class. The Groupon must be redeemed by June 15, 2010. BYD maintains two material studios, one downtown and one in Davenport, and two ethereal studios, visible only to those who are ready to see them.
BYD is Austin's original practitioner of Bikram yoga, the method famous for heating its practice space to a sweat-inducing, detoxifying 105 degrees to make the body malleable enough to safely stretch its way through all 26 asanas (postures) and two breathing exercises. Over the course of 90 minutes, BYD's impassioned instructors will lead you through each asana, bestowing strength and flexibility while priming the different organs of the body to awaken and do their groovy thing. Classes take place every day of the week from morning to evening and are geared for yoga veterans as moldable as warm wax, neophytes unable to touch their toes (or their hands), and everyone in between.
Different postures unblock dammed channels of energy, and deep breathing suffuses the fatigued spirit with renewed vigor, just like blowing into a Nintendo cartridge. Finally become flexible enough to eat spaghetti with your feet and touch your earlobes together with today's Groupon to BYD Yoga.
