Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often, those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow." Reach that shelf with today's Groupon: for $45, you get to take 10 yoga or Pilates classes at Fuller Yoga Pilates and Massage (a $130 value). Students must bring their own mats.
Fuller Yoga Pilates and Massage is a spacious, cheerful studio that boasts a highly skilled staff and a fully stocked schedule to suit yogis of all experience levels. Bending beginners can loosen their legs in classes such as Yoga for Tight People, which highlights simple postures that help melt stiff bodies into stress-free, human-shaped puddles of warm milk. Intermediates can add to their limb lexicons by attending Prana yoga, which spotlights controlled breathing exercises, or Heated Power Yoga, which takes place in a 90- to 95-degree room to nurture working muscles and warm after-class snacks. Tested twisters who scoff at Gumby’s backbends can challenge themselves in advanced classes, including Fuller's Power Yoga, which engages deep core muscles and addresses alignment through a flowing sequence of postures.
Studio director Lauren Justine Fuller has studied yoga, Pilates, dance, and gymnastics under many big names in the business, and has made a name for herself by recently developing the Fuller Mat, a large, nonslip class prop that is circular to represent eternity, wholeness, and the shape of a lucky leprechaun's womb.
