Yoga, like sword ownership and sleeping, is an ancient practice whose benefits are just now being appreciated. Engage in historical habits with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited afternoon and evening classes at Jem Yoga in Merrick (a $150 value).
Jem Yoga's seven experienced instructors strengthen mind, body, and soul via a wide-ranging array of classes, offering instruction to all skill levels. Jem Yoga specializes in Hatha yoga, a holistic practice that connects poses, postures, and meditative practices. Classes range from Level I beginner classes to open and intensive yoga classes and a yoga-Pilates hybrid, with each drop of sweat releasing stress, restoring serenity, and perfuming the air with peace. Whether dexterous as rubber bands or unbending as 1950s gender roles, muscles can achieve maximum stretch with minimum pain thanks to the availability of free yoga mats, blocks, and straps, and neither previous experience nor lotus tattoos are necessary to join in the bendy fun.
Unlike basic stretching, which focuses on external movements, Jem Yoga directs attention inward, inviting quiet Lincoln-Douglas debates between mind and body. Classes run daily, and students can choose any class after 3 p.m.
