What You'll Get
From Napoleon's great crab walk through Europe to J. Robert Oppenheimer's discovery of nuclear fission by kissing his own elbow, victory has always gone to the most flexible. Overpower enemies with today's deal. For $29, you get five drop-in yoga fusion classes at Indigo Studio.
The loft space at Indigo creates a relaxed environment for engaging in a variety of yoga and Pilates-based fusion classes, featuring creative and engaging choices, such as Yoga Booty Ballet, that are a bit off the beaten horse. The aforementioned ballet of backsides is a combination of cardio dance, yoga, body sculpting, and strength training that leaves participants as rejuvenated as a recently bathed boatswain. Set to a contemporary, upbeat soundtrack, the Time Out Chicago–endorsed exercise amalgam works abs, glutes, and funk muscles while coating participants in a flattering sheen of burned calories and good vibes. With today's Groupon tucked into your deal holster, you'll be able to drop into any five of these or other classes. Options include the more traditional hatha yoga and mat Pilates, as well as dance and strengthening classes for reinforcing threadbare core muscles and tucking away worldly worries in a drawer with knick-knacks, spare change, and shrunken heads. A schedule almost as flexible as the instructors ensures that even the most hectic of lives will find room to work on their Jell-O puns.
Indigo Studio is the lotus-like brain baby of owner Jaclyn Jones, who teaches many of the Yoga Booty Ballet classes with panache and enthusiasm. Her studio is known for its reasonable prices and welcoming classes, which encourage everyone from neophytes as stiff and inflexible as a stale Gumby toy to fitness veterans as malleable as a handful of Gak to come in and enjoy themselves. With summer approaching as inexorably as an unexpected volleyball covered in bees, now is the time to get lower bodily regions fit for this season's fashionably daring plus fours.
- At times, I found myself laughing out loud as I pumped my body to old-school Mariah Carey. But just as embarrassment set in, it was time to get reacquainted with my booty in the ballet toning section. After intense leg lifts and plié squats, I was ready to cool down with slow-moving vinyasa flow yoga and the finale, savasana. I left with a calm mind, a post-workout euphoria that comes from an intense cardio workout, a soothing spiritual connection to my body—and a few pop songs from the ’90s stuck in my head. – Maya Henderson, Time Out
