A good yoga class is both calming and challenging, much like arm wrestling a massage therapist or crowd surfing at an Enya concert. Strive for inner peace with today's Groupon for Float On Yoga in Grapevine. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get two 90-minute on-shore group yoga classes (a $30 value).
- For $19, you get one two-hour group paddleboard-yoga class (a $40 value).
Float On Yoga's shore- and water-based courses stretch, stimulate, and soothe physiques and spirits along the cooling waters of Grapevine Lake. In intimate three-person classes, on-shore yogis forge mental and physical refinement inspired by the lake's natural tranquility. Board-bound practitioners receive a brief introduction to the art of paddleboarding before drifting to a quiet cove to anchor boards and begin the qi channeling. Classes flow through a series of strengthening and stretching poses in routines molded to each student's experience level. More seasoned yogis challenge their senses of balance with a sequence of standing poses and techniques for fending off inner-peace-looting pirates. Accidental missteps are rewarded with a refreshing dip in the water before students re-embark and try again.
Float On Yoga
As a high-schooler, Natalie Tailford became hooked on the sense of peaceful floating that comes from practicing yoga. Later as an adult, she found a way to get that feeling of inner floating both literally and mentally. After spending years in a cubicle, she left the corporate world and ventured out on her own to open Float On Yoga. She graduated from the Divine School of Yoga Therapy, and, as a certified yoga therapist, her average workday now includes meeting clients in breezy area parks. Using the calming waters of Lake Grapevine and Lake Lewisville as studios, Natalie or another Float on Yoga instructor teaches yoga to up to five pupils at a time as the class floats on standup paddleboards. The hybrid classes follow the mantra "Breathe, balance, float," which seeks to align body, mind, and water wings as students practice watery asanas and cobra poses.
