Yoga and dancing awaken the body and spirit, allowing participants to forecast oncoming weather, traffic patterns, and unwinning lottery numbers, such as "four" and "peanut." Tune and tone your body with today's Groupon: for $30, you get eight Zumba classes and one hot-yoga class at Karma Yoga in West Springfield (a $62 value).
Karma Yoga's experienced instructors churn out toned tummies, fit physiques, and enlightened minds by guiding fledgling fitness students through a duo of workouts. Zumba—a Latin-inspired, calorie-burning fitness party—entices limber limbs with eclectic dance rhythms combined with resistance training, and is designed to sculpt the body's frame while toning the core. The schedule offers Tuesday and Sunday Zumba sessions, giving students plenty of time to practice moves in front of captive elevator audiences. Hot yoga, held in a heated studio, ensures deeper detoxification and encourages muscles to stretch to their fullest potential, allowing a greater range of movement in the joints, muscles, ligaments, and fingernails, the stodgiest and least flexible of all human components.
