A master yogi resembles a goldfish in a Ziploc bag—able to breathe in a balmy environment while sealing itself into isolated happiness via twist-tie formations. Saturate your scales in the ancient art of yoga with today's Groupon: for $39, you get eight yoga classes at Diana's School of Yoga (a $120 value), located in Grand Prairie.
Diana's School of Yoga offers stretch-seeking students an opportunity to practice limbering postures, brain-bending meditation, and satiated breathing in a motivating environment guided by super stretchable instructors. The schedule offers traditional yoga styles such as hot yoga, ashtanga, and kundalini, as well as more specific classes like pre-natal yoga, guided meditation, and Pilates/yoga ball sessions. For newcomers to yoga, eight classes is more than enough time to learn yoga basics such as the downward dog, upward dog, and the omniscient narrator.
The friendly, enthusiastic instructors are fully certified and know how to help students sweat and stretch until they're calmer, more energized, and more revitalized than the 217 rechargeable AA batteries that power greater America. Yoga stretches your muscles, relieving stiffness and pain; it also increases flexibility and strength (deep core muscles support each pose), which will improve your range of motion, balance, and posture, all vital to moving up in the corporate world, seeing over the steering wheel, and slicing your morning bagel. All classes are drop-in (each session is regularly valued at $15), so no need to call ahead.
Groupon purchasers must activate their eight-class membership by Oct. 21, 2010. All classes must be used by Jan. 21, 2011.

Diana's School of Yoga
Before heeding the call to a life as a certified yoga instructor, Diana Roehl helped companies to cultivate corporate talent as a human resource manager. Now she helps individuals to discover the strengths that lie within. Roehl steers students toward these revelations with Hatha yoga, whose deep breaths and focused poses center the mind as they fortify the muscles. Natural light and calming green walls envelop group classes at her studio, casting a soothing glow on shiny wooden floorboards where students practice shoulder stands and bridges. Roehl also brings her yoga teachings to local offices, showing employees how to dislodge stress and impossibly jammed printer paper with graceful movements and powerful exhalations. Between classes, she performs Thai bodywork sessions, which combine acupressure and ayurvedic medicine through assisted yoga poses.
