Moving one's body to the rhythm of music is a natural human instinct, just like running toward the sound of lightning. Move with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 30 classes at In Motion Yoga (a $250 value).
In Motion Yoga's team of 10 skilled yoga instructors leads a harmonious schedule of early morning to late evening 60-90 minute small-group classes. The studio's Eastern philosophy informs instructors' attitudes, each guru helping students to practice yoga as a way to facilitate meditative musings on life, the inner self, and the lifestyle of a favorite celebrity hermit.
Vinyasa yoga combines controlled breathing exercises with carefully maintained postures, building strength and stamina during 60- to 75-minute sessions; 60- to 75-minute heated Vinyasa classes employ the same principles in a heated studio. Pupils can also partake of pilates, cardio kickboxing, and dance classes, or find their inner cadence during Bollywood basics courses, which teach the fundamental techniques and movements of Bollywood dance, immersing groovers in Indian culture more thoroughly than bathing in a kiddie pool filled with rupees.
Chicago School of Motion
Chicago School of Motion's certified instructors have come together from a variety of backgrounds—among them a choreographer, a raw-food chef, and a lawyer—to help students carve a path toward wellness and discovery of the inner self. As they lead a vigorous schedule of classes, each instructor's teaching style is shaped by their area of expertise and the studio's Eastern philosophy. Their inventive lineup of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and hot Vinyasa yoga sessions focus on pranayama breathing techniques. The studio also hosts yoga booty ballet, Pilates and Yogalates, Butts and Gutts, and Piloxing, which is a combination of Pilates and boxing. All of In Motion Yoga's classes are limited to 25 students and are suitable for students of all levels. The instructors deftly juggle the inexperienced and expert students, refusing to leave any student behind while maintaining a class tempo that keeps advanced students engaged.
