Gardeners who neglect to stretch suffer from thrown-out backs, twisted ankles, and sprained green thumbs so severe that even plastic fruit withers before them. Prep your body for Mother Nature’s barbs with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a two-hour Yoga for Gardeners class at Common Ground Garden Supply and Education Center in Palo Alto (a $31 value). Class will be held on Saturday, September 3, 2011, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle for her unique workout, certified yoga instructor Patricia Becker cultivates bodies ripe for tilling and sowing at nonprofit Common Ground, a nature center dedicated to organic gardening. Groupon grabbers snag the first spots in the 75-person Yoga for Gardeners class, where bodies bend through gentle poses and limbo under tomato vines to strengthen cores and gams, fostering stalwart foundations for flowerbed duties such as bending and lifting. Warm up for the harvest with stretching techniques tailored specifically to green-thumbed yogis and stressed-out garden gnomes among a group of like-minded peers.
