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 $30, new clients get one month of unlimited yoga classes at ISHTA Yoga on 11th Street.
A committed yoga practice is a clarifying experience that recharges spent bio-batteries, drains stress into splenetic pools about the feet, and corrals new heights of fitness like so many flocks of soaring grackles. ISHTA Yoga's studio can gently shove someone down the path to a healthier, bendier lifestyle. The studio offers a wide variety of yoga classes for newbies as stiff as a carbonite-coated smuggler and old hands as flexible as a cephalopod. Options include core flow for strengthening and limbering, restorative to release tension, and ISHTA meditation to connect to your true self. An appropriately flexible schedule offers options every day of the week, ensuring accommodation for even the most hectic, post-modern lifestyles.
ISHTA's serene, focused environment is ideal for starting your paddle down the yoga river. A spacious, naturally lit studio with pale walls and black floorboards calms the mind, unlike many of the hunter-orange, lime-green, and strobe-lit yoga studios advertised on late-night television. Although the studio space has only been serving New Yorkers since 2008, it was built on founder and Yoga Master Alan Finger's decades of yoga practice. Embark on your own yoga journey and stay toned and limber while temporarily storing worldly worries in a drawer with knick-knacks, spare change, and shrunken heads.
