Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often, those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow." Reach that shelf with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited yoga (a $100 value) at Cascade Yoga Studio.
Cascade offers muscle stretching and strengthening classes for yogis from neophyte knee touchers to dough-like pros. The studio can be heated to 90 degrees for several especially pliable styles (such as vinyasa) but, more often than not, it's a comfortable 72 degrees for classes such as gentle yoga, a staple for beginners who want to learn basic movements, and happy hour yoga, an intermediate course that helps release pent up stress from untangling hangers. Ashtanga Vinyasa is an advanced class that adheres to Ashtanga’s series of movements to purify the body of toxins and truffle chocolates.
Each class is taught by one of Stretch Armstrong’s idols, who happen to be the experienced instructors at Cascade who will guide you through every movement with courtesy and buckets of sweaty empowerment. Check out the class schedule, which features classes nine days a week.
Cascade Yoga Studio
Cascade Yoga Studio's trained yogis teach students to rekindle inner harmony. With an emphasis on body awareness and the controlled inhalations and exhalations that support each posture, they teach this ancient yet progressive holistic practice. Classes of all skill levels take place in rooms adjusted to heat levels between 72 and 90 degrees to augment each class's effects. The studio works to abolish physical and mental limitations with a variety of yoga types, which include Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Yin.
Most of Cascade's instructors migrated to yoga from careers in healthcare, and many are practicing physical therapists or have knit sweaters for cold stethoscopes. Cascade Yoga Studio also illuminates the path for aspiring yogis by hosting teacher training classes, which teach meditation, key alignment principles, and each yoga style's effects.
