In its constant attempt to stay fit, humanity has given in to such unfortunate workout trends as livestock lifting and mixed-martial charades. Embrace body and mind fitness that has withstood the test of time with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one month of unlimited classes at Lotus Yoga, Wellness & Gallery (up to a $65 value).
After being welcomed with a hot cuppa tea, namaste newbies will peacefully pose under the watchful eyes of yoga experts inside Lotus Yoga's bright, open art gallery that doubles as a massage and chiropractic studio. The class schedule is currently patchworked by 60- and 75-minute yoga classes that cover morning, afternoon, and evening hours throughout the week.
Each class format offers a niche way of working the body into shape. Take a relaxed approach with the Restorative Yoga class, or build flexibility and mold muscles during a dynamic Vinyasa Flow class. Beginning benders can test their appendages in the Yoga Basics course, and seasoned stretchers can meditate serenely in an All Levels class that, like the Grand Canyon, is open to everyone.
Lotus Yoga, Wellness & Gallery
Inspired by the lotus flower, whose seeds find stability in grimy pond water before blossoming into beautiful flowers, Lotus Yoga, Wellness & Gallery mirrors this journey through its art gallery, yoga classes, and massage studio. The gallery's hardwood floors mirror its wood ceiling, between which clean white walls and a curved display wall in the center of the room allow the artwork they display to pop with crystal vividness. Through all its endeavors, including gallery events and workshops, the destination seeks to establish a community of compassion among its staff and patrons.
The yoga studio teaches the breathing- and movement-based Vinyasa style to practitioners of all skill levels in standard class settings. For an individualized wellness experience, instructors conduct personal-training sessions as therapists administer chiropractic treatments and massages.
