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 $49, you get any combination of 10 yoga and Pilates mat classes (to be used within six weeks of the initial class) or one month of unlimited classes from Invoke Studio (up to a $135 value).
At nearly 4,000 square feet, Invoke owns one of the largest studio spaces in the state of Indiana. This sprawling citadel of core strength contains three practice rooms dappled in natural light, with high ceilings, shower facilities, and a variety of exercise equipment. With today's Groupon folded into a downward-facing dobsonfly, you'll get to choose from two options: any combination of 10 Vinyasa yoga and Pilates mat classes taken over the course of a leisurely six weeks, or one month of unlimited classes, with the 30 consecutive days beginning after your first class. A schedule as flexible as the instructors makes either option easy to fit into a life hectic with work, school, and defeating the scourge of sentient potatoes that has recently overtaken the streets. Indulge in a blended yoga-Pilates smoothie, or untwine the interlaced limbs and focus on only one discipline.
Yoga is a great way to stay toned and limber while temporarily storing worldly worries in a drawer with knick-knacks, spare change, and shrunken heads, whereas Pilates works on strengthening gelatinous cores and psyching out self-defeating lumbar regions. Invoke's classes take place on hardwood or carpeted floors, focusing on the fast-paced poses of Vinyasa yoga or Pilates mat work that uses the body's own weight, with the aid of a few rings and body bars, to strengthen the core. Students from all walks and bear-crawls of life take classes at Invoke. Yoga and Pilates veterans malleable as warm wax and neophytes unable to touch their toes are equally welcome to the sunny studio.
Please arrive 15–20 minutes prior to your initial class. This Groupon is not valid for workshops or reformer classes.

Invoke Yoga and Pilates Studio
With more than 75 classes each week and an expert squad of certified instructors, it makes sense that Nuvo magazine named Invoke Studio the best source for yoga and Pilates seven years in a row. At the downtown location, students strengthen cores in studios bathed in muted hues and accented by exposed ducts and gleaming hardwood floors. Meanwhile, on the north side, a 3,000 square-foot oasis plays host to yoga and Pilates classes, which help to increase range of motion with exercises performed on simple sticky mats. A ballet barre stretches across the wall of a large practice room, where students perform dance-inspired moves. The space glows with new bamboo floors while a two-sided fireplace creates a cozy sense of calm in both the yoga room and entryway.
