Yoga is a much easier way to exercise both mind and body than testing Einstein's theory of relativity by racing a beam of light. Avoid a science-related sprain with today's Groupon: for $30, new clients get five mat classes at High Street Yoga in Westerly (a $60 value). Students should bring a yoga mat or they can rent one at the studio.
At High Street Yoga, experienced teachers lead students through a series of Baptiste-inspired poses in rooms heated to 90 degrees. Instead of shooting steam from their ears, students can de-stress discreetly at all-levels classes, which expel toxins through a flow of energizing poses. Early-bird classes shoo yawns and enliven eyelids during 60 minutes of mat-based exercises, and happy-hour yoga helps guests to wind down after work with a cocktail of poses that strengthen and lengthen muscles. Nestled inside the former Revival House theater, High Street Yoga offers benders a meditative retreat with sunny practice spaces, showers, and secluded areas for changing into Batman costumes. Consult the studio’s calendar to find the full lineup of classes, as well as instructions on how to prepare for class.
