Inner peace is like the Sasquatch—many people claim it's real, but most remain skeptical until the moment it seizes them while meditating on a mountaintop. Today’s Groupon brings the bliss: for $20, you get five classes to be used in one month at Karoun Yoga Studio (a $50 value).
The caring contortionists at Karoun Yoga welcome aspiring benders to an intimate setting to heal and energize their muscle-and-mind-matter. Each class specializes in gifting beginning and advanced yogis with the slow, gradual breath and body emancipation of Vinyasa flow yoga. Tenderfooted yogis can dip a rubber-curious toe into relaxing waters with the gentle yoga classes, where the safe, supportive environment stresses clear introduction of postures and soft deployment of techniques. Depending on your bendsperience, the all-levels course tailors movements to stimulate the limbs of both beginner and experienced pretzel-people.
Drink in the panoramic city view from the 13th floor of the 1350 Main Street tower (with lunchtime classes Tuesday and Thursday from 12:15 p.m.–1 p.m.), or bask in the pleasant natural light of the Pearl Street studio's historical Birnie Building. The experienced, hands-on instructors welcome athletes with compassion and personal attention, leaving you feeling pliable, refreshed, and at ease, fully equipped to reach a difficult itch or use a clear mind to telekinetically remove itches from strangers. Check the schedule to plan your class and location.
This Groupon is for new clients only, and it is not valid for private classes.
Karoun Yoga Studio
The pressure was starting to get to Karoun Charkoudian, much like a teakettle when an entire family stares at it impatiently. She had completed grad school and was looking for a corporate gig, and this new phase in life was causing her a lot of confusion. But all of that went away when a friend brought her to a Bikram yoga class in 2003. There, she discovered newfound peace and clarity. In the years that followed, Karoun completed teacher training for several types of yoga, including Vinyasa flow and Iyengar, and became heavily influenced by the meditative movements of Chinese qi gong.
Now she shares her expertise within the bright green walls at Karoun Yoga. The intimate, modern studio is also home to other experienced instructors who approach yoga from the realms of fitness, rehabilitation, dance, and spirituality.
