Homeless butterflies must beg for pollen on municipal maples and rest their wings atop half-stomped gutter muffins unless someone's outdoor yoga pose offers them a temporary perch. Today's Groupon returns butterflies to their natural habitat to Hiking Yoga. Choose between two locations in Kansas City and Shawnee Mission. Choose between the following options:
• For $20, you get two 90-minute yoga hikes (a $40 value).
• For $99, you get three 90-minute yoga hikes plus a two-week cleanse (a $270 value).
Exercise and physical balance come together during these classes, wherein students join skilled teachers to hike the hills of Kansas City, stopping in scenic spots for yoga and roundtable discussions on what the color blue tastes like. Hiking Yoga's 90-minute workout combines cardio, strength, and flexibility training while allowing students to witness some of the lesser-seen vistas of the area. Weekend classes and weekday evening sessions make it easy for yogis to practice the dolphin plank pose in its intended natural setting—in front of a sunset atop a sleeping bear's back. Achieve multifaceted exercise in a brand-new environment that will prepare anyone for future fitness regimens when prankster wood-sprites spirit suburban homes into the forest wilderness.
A comprehensive 14-day cleanse combines the wellness-summoning powers of detoxifying recipes and a network of online encouragement to flush out processed foods and boost sustainable health practices. With daily online support, education, and an all-natural diet plan from certified holistic health counselors and life coaches, students end their two-week cleanses feeling nourished, refreshed, and able to determine the ripeness of fresh produce with merely a brief glance at its aura.
Due to extreme heat, hiking at the Kansas City location is postponed until Saturday, August 27, and at the Overland Park location until Sunday, August 28.
Its rapid rise chronicled in in Forbes, Men’s Journal, and a parcel of other press, Hiking Yoga has sent massive waves of invigorated bliss washing up and down the west coast since its 2009 founding. Each of its outdoor excursions melds the cardio workout of hiking with the stretching and measured breaths of yoga. Certified instructors lead pupils through scenic vistas, or, in early-morning sessions, impressionistic dreamscapes, as they alternate between heart-pumping strides and yoga breaks suitable for neophytes and the pretzel-capable alike.
