In its constant attempt to stay fit, humanity has given in to such unfortunate workout trends as livestock lifting, Spazzercise, and mixed-martial charades. Embrace a body and mind fitness craze that has stood the test of time with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 10 yoga or fitness classes (a $124 value) from Flying Yoga in Oakland's Temescal District.
Flying Yoga offers yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and TRX suspension classes to students of all skill levels in a warm, welcoming environment. Their flexible schedule provides an abundance of opportunities to bend, stretch, and strengthen following along with experienced instructors and shutting out untrained mind voices. Choose from hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa, yoga basics, and more to improve flexibility and strength, releasing a spray of bubbly bottled tension after each rejuvenating session; around 75% of Flying Yoga's classes are heated. Award-winning yogini and circus aerialist Laura Camp leads a knowledgeable team of yoga professionals inside this sparkling studio, a serene environment much more open to posing practice than your roommate’s full-length mirror, which merely emits a constant stream of backhanded compliments. In addition to offering yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and TRX suspension classes, Flying Yoga also acts as a performance venue, hosting a variety of events, including movie nights and concerts. Mats are available for rent for $1.
Flying Studios owner Laura Camp draws on her experience with contemporary dance, circus aerials, and various yoga modalities to create her studio’s curriculum, incorporating elements from a number of strength disciplines to ease students into a new practice or push seasoned exercisers to the next level. Laura cultivates a noncompetitive, judgment-free atmosphere where guests can feel comfortable trying their hands, arms, and legs at Ashtanga- and Vinyasa-style yoga poses, engaging Zumba dance steps, and muscle-sculpting body-weight exercises while hanging safely from a TRX suspension system.
Throughout each class, instructors encourage pupils to modify techniques or utilize the center's posture-aiding blocks and straps to accommodate physical limitations or injury. Inside the recently renovated and expanded studio, instructors keep students engaged in workout sessions by playing music during class or ratcheting the temperature up to 90 degrees, which helps to purge bodies of toxin-laden perspiration and parasitic ice sculptures.
