Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a Grendel. Bend and stretch bloodlessly with today's deal: for $40, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes at evolation's Buffalo, Orchard Park and North Tonawanda (opening April 30) locations (up to a $150 value). All classes are held in heated rooms (except classes for children), with temperatures ranging up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the specific session's objectives.
The skilled, friendly instructors at evolation are heckbent on bending students into more self-aware, self-confident humanoids, both in and out of the studio. By combining the meditative movements and breathing techniques of traditional yoga with the balmy room temperatures of Bikram yoga, classes assist yogis of all skill and experience levels in making sense of their aspirations through impressive, jasmine-scented perspiration. Clean a cluttered conscience during the half-hour Chill 30 meditation class, aimed at achieving internal focus, or work up a sweat in an hour-long Warm 60 class, designed to help beginners improve their form and breathing techniques. Flow 75 classes blend basics with more advanced moves at a tropical 80 degrees, while Hot 90 sessions up the ante and the temperature, challenging beginner and experienced pose pundits with Bikram method series postures, 105 degrees of Fahrenheit, and meditations on maneuvering in leather pants.
Snuggled in a cozy house, evolation's Buffalo location makes students feel right at home, and the soon-to-open North Tonawanda location will house a slew of yoga amenities, including meditation booths, an interactive media room, and juice bar. Classes are held throughout the week, with convenient morning, afternoon, and evening hours. Dressed in comfortable clothing, swing by the studio to start your month of sweating, stretching, and strengthening, arriving at least 15 minutes early on your first day to complete registration.
