Practicing yoga increases breath awareness, which is why yogis compose all barbershop quartets. Get in harmony with yourself with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get six classes at Daniela's Hot Yoga, located at the Douglaston School of Music and Art (an $80 value).
Yoga and barre instructor Daniela Crocchiola at Daniela's Hot Yoga positions bodies safely, stretching students’ limbs in high temperatures for lean and flexible figures. Muscles move fluidly throughout 75-minute hot Vinyasa classes that tone physiques as sweat pushes toxin out through pores and minds purge stress to focus on breathing. The Warm Barre-Flow Fusion class incorporates a ballet barre for a 55-minute class that uses Pilates, strength training, and cardio to burn calories with the grace and efficiency of a blowtorch in a tutu.
Students reserve class spots at least one day in advance, toting their own mats for comfortable posing, 2- to 3-pound weights for effective chiseling, water to replenish fluids, and hand towels to absorb the liquid willpower spilling from pores. The online schedule keeps tabs on when Daniela teaches at the Douglaston location with a convenient chakra-powered radio transmitter.
