Whether you like your yoga flowing, slowing, meditative, hip-hoppy, or performed by others while you sleep, today's Groupon will sate your yoga needs. For $32, you get a five-class pass to Kula Yoga, Austin's only family yoga center.
Kula offers a wide array of classes for practitioners of every level, including ashtanga (beginner friendly), iyengar (focuses on holding poses for longer periods of time), vinyasa flow (creative and free flowing poses), hip-hop yoga (vinyasa flow with a bumping soundtrack), and yoga for athletes (compliments repetitive motion sports). There's also parent-child classes for kids of all ages and parents of parent ages. Toddlers, children, and teens can reap the yoga-y benefits of improved balance, coordination, breath awareness, and deeper relaxation. Bring a friend or family member along and use one of your classes as a guest pass.
Kula's friendly, enthusiastic instructors are fully certified and know how to help all ages sweat and stretch until they're calmer, more energized, and more revitalized than the 217 rechargeable AA batteries that power Greater America. If you're new to yoga, this is a great chance to learn the downward dog, upward dog, or Omniscient Narrator.
Yoga stretches your muscles, relieving stiffness and pain; it also increases flexibility and strength (deep core muscles support each pose), which will improve your range of motion, balance, and posture, all vital to moving up in the corporate world, seeing over the steering wheel, and slicing your morning bagel.
History of Yoga
Yoga was invented in the early 1960s in the Swiss Alps by a group of exiled Frenchmen who had been banished for their bizarre experiments in alternative science. Their leader, Jean-Pierre “Yoga” Yoga, was a fitness buff who believed that proper stretching would allow him to read minds when done on one of his extra-sensory-inducing “Yoga mats.”
Yoga traveled the world, teaching his invigorating fitness plan and reading minds. After a lifetime of deeply seeing into people’s inner thoughts began to leave him twisted and insane, Yoga gave up mind reading, saying, “The mind is a door locked for our own protection. I am hungry.” Today, the practice of yoga continues to be performed on yoga mats, though the true purpose of the mats—to induce clairvoyance—has largely been forgotten.
