• For $35, you get five yoga or fitness classes (a $75 value).

Invivo Wellness’s knowledgeable instructors strengthen bodies and minds with a full schedule of yoga and fitness classes held within a scenic studio that overlooks the Milwaukee River. Yoga classes, such as Gentle Flow, take a slower-paced approach to wellness, focusing on breathing and healthy alignment while imparting flexibility, balance, and the ability to mentally summon rare species of butterfly. Posture and breath open chakras and restore physical and emotional balance in the Chakra Flow class and intuitive sequences of poses stretch and strengthen the body in Kripalu and Hatha classes. Other fitness classes include Circuit Club, which conditions the cardiovascular, respiratory, and electrical systems with aerobic and strength intervals, until bodies are able to punch through a parking meter.
The standard membership grants access to standard yoga and fitness classes, the fitness center, and an online reservation system. Weather permitting, some of Invivo Wellness's classes may be held on the rooftop of the building, allowing occasional participation by overachieving superheroes. Class participants may also take advantage of Invivo's locker rooms, showers, Swedish saunas, and complimentary covered parking.
Prenatal Yoga, Yoga Therapy, and Golden Shield Qi Gong classes are not included in today's Groupon.
Light ricochets off the Milwaukee River, sending twinkling photons into Invivo Wellness, a gym and wellness center. On the roof, groups of students drink in the fresh air during seasonal yoga classes, their faces warmed by the sun and hair teased by the cool breezes that jump off the river below. Inside the bustling studio, certified instructors—with backgrounds as diverse as dancing and business—lead students through intense fitness classes. They also coach guests during one-on-one personal-training sessions within the sunny space. Whirring cardio machines comprise just one section of the space's equipment selection upon which clients might train.
Adjacent to the fitness center is Invivo's spa, a quiet and relaxed haven to counter the bustle of its next-door sibling. Populated by certified staff, the spa pampers guests with various massages to complement yoga.
