Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a Grendel. Bend and stretch bloodlessly with today's deal: for $39, you get a five-class pass to AntiGravity Yoga (an $85 value) at Imagination Place in the Brickyard Plaza Shopping Center.
Melding techniques from dance, Pilates, and calisthenics, AntiGravity Yoga is a popular new fitness trend that provides a challenging yet accessible workout for participants of all skill and fitness levels. Utilizing patented AntiGravity hammocks that support up to 1,000 pounds—just like UFO tractor beams—this workout method is effective at increasing agility and strengthening the core while relieving stressful pressure on the joints and fragile floors. Participants will be able to strengthen their fleshoskeletons while shedding stress and remaining motivated in a fun, supportive group environment. Imagination Place’s experienced instructors provide helpful direction, and a versatile schedule offers morning and evening sessions several times a week. There are better ways to acquire a fit and limber physique than jump-roping during every elevator ride and irking fellow coworkers. At Imagination Place, visitors can pursue whole-body fitness with gravity-defying workouts that don’t include doing jumping jacks after being fired out of a cannon. Whether customers want to stand taller, bend over backward, or open a pickle jar taped to their backs, today’s Groupon to AntiGravity Yoga will take them to flexible new heights. Participants must be at least 16 years old and be in relatively good health, as well as sign a waiver before class.
Darlene Casanova, owner of Imagination Place, believes that music holds the power to strengthen familial and community-based relationships. Drawing from her extensive training and careers in the performing arts, she now strives to nurture family bonds and child development via music and movement classes. Along with a team of certified teachers and music instructors, she leads a harmonious selection of internationally recognized programs open to adults, children, and operatic family dogs. In Music Together, an early-childhood series in which caregivers join their tots in song and movement, children choose from a basket brimming with instruments and Baroque-style wigs to identify their individual musical styles. Teachers spark early creativity with yoga, art, and theater in the Imagination Workshop, and motivate youngsters to explore music theory in Musical Bridge.
When she’s not crooning with kiddies, Darlene teaches AntiGravity fitness. Suspended from an AntiGravity hammock—a soft, pliable fabric used to enhance stretches—she guides pupils through an aerial series of movements that meld techniques from dance, Pilates, calisthenics, and classic yoga.
In addition to her wide range of family classes, Imagination Place hosts music- and art-filled birthday extravaganzas. During the warmer months, an assortment of summer-camp programs fills the studio with creative children eager to escape the stresses of babysitting their parents.
