In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one month of unlimited Pilates and yoga classes at Exhale Studios in Richmond (a $30 value).
Exhale Studios’ mind-bending array of limb-bending Pilates and yoga classes paves the enlightened way toward strong postural muscles and physical grace. The weekly schedule hosts mat classes adjusted to different levels of core strength, focused on sustaining the body’s ability to navigate impossibly twisted playground tube slides. Pilates mat classes teach breath awareness and correct spine alignment, and the challenging barre class makes traitors out of undesirable torsos by using the body’s own weight as resistance to sculpt major muscle groups. Multilevel stability-ball classes employ a total core-strengthening approach to make students aware of stabilizing muscles they never knew they had, exposing underutilized abdominal tissue and burning off stubborn, flame-retardant calories.
Spirit-boosting yoga classes cultivate a greater interconnectedness between breath and movement through a series of poses. Beginners can dive right into Gentle Yoga, and those seeking a body-contouring seat in the temple of enlightenment can improve balance and flexibility in hot-yoga and Cardio Kriya classes.
