Yoga, like sword ownership and sleeping, is an ancient practice whose benefits are just now being appreciated. Reap the rewards of ancient ways of life with today's Groupon: for $39, you get eight yoga classes at Lubbock Yoga on 34th Street (up to a $96 value).
Lubbock Yoga provides stress-bound bodies at any experience level with a calming space in which to pursue the yogic arts. Experienced instructors teach a wide range of classes, such as a basic essentials class that imparts simple movement and breathing principles to beginners and amnesiac experts. The Vinyasa flow series targets stretchier students with a continuous barrage of poses that burn fat, strengthen muscles, and improve balance. Those whose brain waves are entangled in cluttered nets can take advantage of awareness-focusing pranayama classes, which emphasize breathing, mediation, and light movement. Kundalini also targets mind muscles, using a series of chants to focus ambulating thoughts and repel monotone-hating spirits. A free mat rental is provided for first-time students.
Classes take place in a relaxing, open atmosphere featuring wooden floors, soft lighting, and high ceilings. Students should wear clothing comfortable enough to allow for horizontal headstands and four-dimensional, future-facing dogs.
