Like a roadside run-in with a police officer, yoga requires participants to attempt difficult poses and recite the alphabet backwards. Remember what letter comes before “W” with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get 10 yoga classes at Firefly Yoga Studio (a $70 value).
Firefly Yoga Studio shapes pupils’ bodies and minds with nine styles of yoga throughout the week. The studio’s robust schedule allows even busy workaday yogis to attend sessions, including a sprinkling of 45-minute express classes that cater to students unable to attend a full 75-minute session. During Firefly Flow yoga, instructors encourage pupils to stretch bodies in a Vinyasa-style flow, switching from one pose to another while syncing movements with breathing exercises and radio waves from old Soviet satellites. Hot-yoga participants sweat out stress and toxins in a 99-degree studio, working their cores to build heat and spandex-approved muscle tone. Special 90-minute midnight yoga classes combine Firefly Flow and hot-yoga elements for a solid workout before slowing the pace down to prepare bodies for a good night’s sleep, free of restless limbs and flab-biting bedbugs.
