Inner peace is like the Sasquatch—many people have claimed it's real, but you’re skeptical until it seizes you while you're meditating on a mountaintop. Today’s Groupon brings the bliss: $30 for any six mat classes (an $85 value) at Inspiral Motion, located in University Heights.
Inspiral Motion offers mat classes in yoga, Pilates, and GYROKINESIS, with instructors from the top schools in the country. The center's yoga mat classes are rooted in the Vinyasa yoga discipline, a flowing style with asanas, or postures, linked together by verbal cues. Pilates students just starting out are introduced to the fundamentals of breathing, flexibility, and pelvis stability in their quests to become top Pelvis impersonators, while advanced practitioners of the Pilatic arts can discover how to Boomerang, Jackknife, and Shoulder Bridge with the best. In GYROKINESIS, students will stir their senses through a dry-scrubbing body massage, jumpstart the body’s energies through a series of movements, and further invigorate the body with mat exercises.
Inspiral Motion’s approach to energy and exercise has earned it acclaim and attention throughout the Cleveland area. Fox 8 named it the top Pilates studio in Cleveland in 2008, and it hit the list again in 2009; it has even found a student in synchronized-swimming superstar Shaquille O’Neal. Inspiral Motion is northeast Ohio's only Gyrotonic teach training facility.
Groupon users are encouraged to mix and match from the different disciplines when selecting their six classes, and are also asked to bring their own mats to class and indicate their preference for Rugby League or Rugby Union when scheduling.
