A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $40, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes at Dharma Yoga Studio (a $120 value).
The certified yoga instructors at Dharma Yoga Studio align stances in beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes, operating under the spiritual guidance of Sri Dharma Mittra, a man who has devoted more than 50 years to the ancient practice. A schedule packed with 26 weekly classes woos beginning posers with a yoga basics course, as well as restorative and gentle sessions where pupils master easy asanas using props such as blocks, inflated balls, and sequined top hats. Students seeking further advancement can manipulate bodies in the Dharma yoga series, which gradually intensifies from the balancing, stretching, and inverted poses of Dharma I to highly advanced, two-hour Dharma IV sessions. The advanced Dharma IV class guides partakers through a meditative psychic sleep that incorporates ancient breathing practices, sound, and supersensory games of Guess Who.
Myriad unembellished room dividers carve an intimate, pensive space within the bright, airy yoga studio, with patterned wall hangings to further entice the senses. Patrons who attend one class per day for 30 days will receive a week of free classes, as well as a mildly euphoric sense of accomplishment.
