Exercising physical, mental, and spiritual health is an ancient practice that began with yoga, morphed into pogs, and just recently has evolved into Wii bowling. Try out the classic with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get one month of unlimited yoga at Heartstring Bead Shop & Yoga in Norman (a $90 value).
A brand-new yoga studio beckons stretchers seeking more than just sweat from their exercise regime, as a Chopra Center–certified yoga instructor helps guide disciples down the path toward physical, mental, and spiritual peace. Blending Hatha yoga and primordial-sound meditation—an ancient Vedic tradition designed to silence mental distractions—classes of up to 80 stretch, meditate, and practice turning invisible in unison. Sunrise yoga practiced at 6:30 a.m. Monday and Wednesday on the rooftop (weather permitting) gives yoga bears a chance to greet the sun personally, Hatha yoga classes at 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday give limber limbs a good workout, and relaxation yoga at 6 p.m. Monday and 6:30 p.m. Thursday helps purge stress leftover from the workplace.
Heartstring has classes to suit every lifestyle, including new mothers and their tiny offspring at 10:30 a.m. on Friday and seniors expecting to stretch wisdom beyond their years at the yoga for seniors class at 9 a.m. Friday. Kabbalah yoga is also offered Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Unlimited yoga encourages more stretching than the average body is used to, so even flexible bone-bags should prepare to feel like they’ve become a toy from the ’90s that’s been bombarded with cosmic rays.
