Though it prohibits us from bench-pressing cars, gravity is the best thing for getting water out of the sky and the only thing keeping football stadiums from floating away. Resist it with today's Groupon: for $35, you get four anti-gravity yoga classes at Core Connection Studio in the Elm Street School House in Long Hill Township.
Anti-gravity yoga is a fusion of gymnastics, aerial performance, yoga, and sweet revenge on know-it-all high-school physics teachers. Each student is set up with his or her own ceiling-strung hammock, which is used for strength training, stretching exercises, and sensory deprivation (facilitating deep relaxation and meditation). During your four classes, an experienced instructor will guide you through variants of traditional yoga poses interspersed with less traditional bouts of empathizing with bats by hanging upside down and swinging back and forth. The unusual yoga technique increases strength and flexibility while providing a heart-pumping cardio workout. Classes generally meet for one hour and are offered in the morning, afternoon, and evening, depending on the day of the week (view the schedule here).
Core Connection Studio, a bright and sunny studio, provides a non-competitive, inviting environment for flying yogis of all skill levels and wingspans. All of their programs are designed with safety in mind, and because this particular program incorporates a hammock, you will feel as secure as you would tucked in your bed. Use today's Groupon to escape the stresses of bipedalism, and purchase additional as gifts to take friendships to new heights. Call ahead to reserve your spot in class.

Arthur Murray Dance Studio
Arthur Murray Dance Studio has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
