When The Beatles returned from India, they brought with them tranquility, sitars, and the ability to stretch their hair past their shoulders. Test the limits of your flexibility with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get 25 yoga classes at Full Motion Fitness in Hopkins (a $400 value).
Yoga instructors at Full Motion Fitness demonstrate muscle-stretching and strengthening poses in an array of one-hour yoga classes ranging from detoxifying hot yoga to relaxing Vinyasa. Hot-yoga classes soften stiff muscles inside a gently heated room while bodies banish impurities and any medieval armor still being worn. The peaceful Vinyasa sessions combine breathing exercises with changing poses to hone focusing skills, and the Hatha Flow and Yoga Burn sessions quickly alternate postures to deliver cardio workouts and inspire new choreography for lackluster rain dances.

A stable of free weights and kettlebells greets guests at Full Motion Fitness, prepared to do its duty to remake visitors’ physiques at the command of motivated gym-goers or experienced trainers. Staffers propel clients toward fitness goals during personal-training sessions or group classes that range from boot camps to sports-conditioning training. Led by coaches who have played on the professional level, they help clients improve speed, strength, and acceleration, focusing on sports such as basketball, football, track, and baseball. Lone exercising wolves can execute their own fitness regimens in the TV-lined main gym space, which brims with equipment for raising heart rates and toning muscles, including treadmills, TRX suspension-training straps, and selectorized weight machines. In addition to hosting workouts, the studio gives clients the tools to achieve full-body wellness, including skin treatments such as microdermabrasion and chiropractic services, which can ease chronic pain and melt stress faster than a sauna powered by glowing compliments.
