Regular yoga practitioners often report feeling years younger after their increased flexibility allows them to fit into their childhood cribs. Stretch into new spaces with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five yoga classes at Empower Me Yoga (up to an $80 value).
At Empower Me Yoga, trained instructors encourage yogis to stretch their way across a spacious studio while exploring eight types of 30- to 90-minute classes. Yoga for Everyone guides students through the basic techniques of meditation, breathing, and sustaining poses in front of motion-activated searchlights. Vigorous yoga whisks students through a fast-paced Vinyasa style, stimulating the entire body and hastening heart rates, and pupils twist their bodies into shapes designed to soothe a frayed nervous system in Restorative yoga. Students can use their passes over an unlimited time span and can also give classes to friends, family, or uncoordinated ventriloquist dummies.
Empower Me Yoga
Empower Me Yoga's crew of 16 instructors guides students through gentle, moderate, and intense yoga courses. Budding yogis and those that prefer a relaxed approach can try the Yoga for Everyone session, during which a guru guides students through the basic precepts of meditation, breathing, and postures. Moderate classes build on these foundations, and yogis who want to oust toxins along with tension can sweat through a slightly heated take on the classic version of Hatha in warm yoga. Marla Ericksen, the studio's program director, also mints brand new yogis in programs that take place at the studio's Teacher Training Academy.
