Ranking among the best ways to relax and build core strength, yoga is also the only way to build a career as The Human Shoelace. Nimbly tie the knot with today's Groupon: for $39, you get 10 yoga classes at Kashmir Hands in Franklin Square (a $130 value). The 10 classes must be used within three months.
With a passion for the human machine and a fistful of certifications, Dina Giugliano and her staff at Kashmir Hands lead weekly yoga classes suitable for all skill levels. The six standard yoga classes are divvied up by skill level, but beginners are encouraged to join even the most advanced courses, as poses can be appropriately modulated, and newbies' unbalanced chakras can be overcome with metaphysical counterweights. Hatha Yoga Challenge takes twisters through a sequence of 40 challenging yet manageable positions and two breathing exercises, and the deeply relaxing Gentle Flow class introduces bodies to serene equipoise. Prenatal yoga keeps mothers-to-be in tip-top shape and helps relieve the natural mental stresses of lugging around a miracle-in-progress and figuring out a truly unique way to spell Jennifer.
Kashmir Hands’ owner, Dina M. Giugliano, possesses an unending fascination with the abilities of the human body. She fosters her enchantment through three primary avenues: massage, yoga, and doula services, a Greek tradition that combines the duties of a pregnancy counselor with those of a midwife. Her thumbs relieve patrons’ tension and coax out toxins during therapeutic deep-tissue massage, a soothing avenue to injury recovery, particularly when paired with a gentle form of yoga. There are more gentle and more intense forms to choose from, as Giugliano offers 17 types of yoga classes, each developed for a certain age group, level of athletic ability, or species.
