Yoga awakens the body and spirit, allowing yogis to forecast oncoming weather, traffic patterns, and unwinning lottery numbers, such as "four" and "peanut." Tune and tone your body with today's Groupon to Lilac Healing Center. Choose between the following options:
• For $39, you get five small-group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes (a $90 value).
• For $40, you get a one-hour Swedish massage (an $80 value).
Lilac Healing Center strengthens minds and bodies with a slate of classes that blends stretching, meditation, focused breathing, and motivational booty shaking. Like a many-headed Hydra, each class contains five to eight pupils who meet at a mutually convenient time that they schedule online. Guests seeking a low-impact fitness experience can try beginner yoga, which hones breathing and relaxation techniques, or Pilates, whose core-building exercises may ease back and hip pain caused by too many Rockettes tryouts. Students can also discover their hard-bodied doppelgängers in power yoga, a Vinyasa class that builds endurance and strong muscles.
A relaxing respite from stressful life events, the Swedish massage boosts circulation as it shoos grumpy moods back to the dank cave system they emerged from. Inspired by smooth jazz, this rhythmic style of kneading melts knots from muscles with fluid strokes, light friction, and soprano-sax solos.
Lilac Healing Center
Lilac Healing Center is staffed by a diverse group of trained therapists who improve their clients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Founded by licensed massage therapist Kathryn McDaniel, Lilac Healing Center slowly grew out of a series of other businesses—what began simply in 2002 as a place where people went to get a massage became a destination for all kinds of healing services. Today, the staffers not only perform bodywork and therapeutic yodeling, but they also provide acupuncture, energy work, and custom vitamin programs. In addition, the center hosts a multitude of both private and group yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes.
