Practicing yoga increases breath awareness, which is why yogis compose all barbershop quartets. Get in harmony with yourself with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get 10 yoga classes at Embrace with Faith Hunter Yoga (a $143 value).
Yoga guru Faith Hunter and a crew of experienced instructors help students transcend daily stresses and cultivate holistic harmony with a flexible schedule of supportive 60- to 90-minute yoga classes. Within Embrace's chic loft setting, aspiring yogis can step onto rented mats ($1) beneath ornately molded ceilings and glimmering candelabras. Students ease into fundamental poses during Beginner Flow classes, or gently flex with props to aid injury recovery and inflame neglected barbells with envy in Healing Restorative Yoga. The more intensive Vinyasa Flow lessons limber taut muscles with challenging inversions, exhilarating sun salutations, and Vinyasa postures linked with uplifting breath. Alternatively, inventive Yoga Play sessions nurture balance and flexibility with partner poses, and explore acrobatic basics as energetically as an espresso-fueled jumping bean.
Although Embrace with Faith Hunter Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Embrace with Faith Hunter Yoga
Faith Hunter embraces a yogic philosophy that hinges almost entirely upon treating the practice as a means to an end. The studio's Vinyasa-inspired classes do build core strength and improve flexibility over time, but these sessions also encourage students to recognize and harness the positive energies that yoga coaxes to the forefront of the mind. From there, the teachers urge attendees to use the renewed understanding of these energies to live a fuller, more impassioned life.
This lifestyle philosophy—called "embrace your flow"—and emphasis on yogic practice has garnered national and international prominence for Faith. She has even appeared on the covers of publications such as Yoga Journal and Om Yoga & Lifestyle, and she has posted her own yoga videos on My Yoga Online.
Her DC studio's classes aim to accommodate virtually all skill and fitness levels. Beginners sessions can introduce students to fundamental asana sequences and breathing techniques, and more advanced classes start to incorporate more challenging poses, including inversions, arm balances, and slow-motion break dancing.
