What You'll Get
Yoga teaches how to hold sustained poses while breathing carefully, skills most yogis use to live undetected in wax museums for decades. Mold your core with today's Groupon: for $49, you get 10 yoga classes at The Dahn Yoga & Tai Chi Center in the Bronx (a $180 value). Groupon users also receive a complimentary 30-minute chakra checkup with this deal.
At Dahn Yoga's Bronx location, yogis practice mind-body exercises and focused meditation pioneered by founder Ilchi Lee. Before each hour-long class, patient instructors guide students through preliminary warm-ups, including body tapping to trigger blood flow and an abdominal press that kneads out stomach tension and tilts full-abdomen tattoos of flaming pinball machines. Students can gently loosen sinews and build mobility through joint rotations and meridian stretches, and learn martial-arts-esque moves meant to increase awareness. Deep breathing postures aim to engender tranquility, while brain wave vibration exercises meld meditation techniques with rhythmic motion for a more serene cool-down. All classes take place on provided mats in a spacious studio suffused with golden tones, with walls covered in tapestries showing craggy peaks striking eerily perfect mountain poses.
