People holding yoga poses typically seek self-discipline and control, whereas those holding yoga posters just want Sting's autograph. Find peace while standing still with today's Groupon: for $20, you get six relaxing yoga sessions at Keep Calm Yoga in Lawton (a $48 value). Classes are held Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Ashley Heddy, the experienced yoga guru behind Keep Calm Yoga, guides students through therapeutic yoga classes to strengthen muscles, improve endurance, and hone concentration. Students arrive at the studio in the morning armed with their own mats and props, ready to embrace their inner yoga warrior. Ashley shepherds yogis and yoginis through their asanas as they greet the sun with stretched sinews, taut muscles, and peaceful poses. Sessions cover the basics of stretching and breathing for newbies, and the experienced instructor’s keen yoga eye—her left—allows her to provide adjustments to challenge seasoned pupils. Stress melts away during the tranquil lesson, and Ashley empowers students to chop through their mental cinder blocks to find peace and tranquility during trying times outside the studio, from frenzied workweeks to harrowing games of high-stakes Jenga.
