Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often, those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow." Reach that shelf by stretching your muscles and adding muscle to your stretches with today's Groupon to the Lotus Centre on Ann Street. Choose between two options:
- For $24, you get a five-class yoga pass (an $80.72 value).
- For $13, you get a 30-minute infrared-sauna session (a $28.25 value).
The friendly and experienced instructors at the Lotus Centre teach a wide range of yoga classes at this serene two-studio body haven. Students gain a basic knowledge of stretching skeletal rubber bands in the beginner classes or can opt for a more vigorous workout after a long day of litigating in a strength-building power-yoga class. Specialty classes, such as prenatal yoga, yoga for a better back, hot yoga, and Corgi and Me community classes cater to a variety of student needs, and a flexible class schedule allows aspiring contortionists to drop in after work, before work, or while playing hooky from work.
The 30-minute infrared sauna treatment surrounds bodies in a FIR (far infrared) sauna made of hypoallergenic, toxin-free Ontario basswood. Radiant heat warms and expands tissues, boasting relief from a range of chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia and psoriasis, also releasing toxins such as heavy metals and the miscast hexes of lonely ancient tomes. Guests must bring a large towel to the infrared sauna session, though towels are also available to rent.
