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: for $20, you get two classes with Hiking Yoga in San Diego or L.A. (a $40 value). Exercise and physical balance come together during these jaunts into the wild hills of San Diego for scenic batches of soul-stretching yoga. Public hikes start in San Diego on October 11, 2010.
Hiking Yoga San Diego (http://www.hikingyoga.com/san_diego.html), assembles a group of spry yogis for 90 minute workouts at their Balboa Park location at Balboa Drive and El Prado, while students further north are welcome to redeem their Groupon at either of the two locations offered by Hiking Yoga of Los Angeles. Join Hiking Yoga founder Eric Kipp and other skilled teachers for rousing cardio, strength building, and flexibility training while hiking San Diego and stopping in scenic spots to do yoga. Weekend classes and evening sessions on weekdays make it easy to find time to witness some of the lesser-seen vistas of the city and achieve an impactful workout.
With today's Groupon, all customers need to do is go online to schedule the specific class date they would like to attend and Eric will prepare yoga mats and staff for each class. Achieve multi-faceted 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.
This deal is also valid at Hiking Yoga's Los Angeles locations. Not valid at San Francisco, South Bay, or East Bay locations.
Although Hiking Yoga's San Diego branch is too new for reviews, Yelpers give the San Francisco branch a perfect five stars:
- Eric is super nice, and full of interesting tidbits for locals and tourists alike, as he also leads tours when he is not hiking and yoga-ing. He leads a vigorous, fast-paced workout that definitely kicked my butt! – Lex C.
- I'm a local and Eric and Megan took us to places I've never seen, beautiful gardens and high-up places with great views. The yoga was a great way to break up the hike inbetween [sic] destinations.
