After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon to Martha's Studio. Choose from the following options:
- For $20, you get a 30-minute massage (a $40 value).
- For $25, you get five drop-in yoga classes (up to a $75 value).
The certified therapist and experienced yoga instructors at Martha's Studio unbundle bodies and relax minds with massages and yoga courses. During 30-minute massages, a therapist tailors treatments to the needs, wants, and rhythmic-jazz preferences of each client before employing a skilled set of hands to knead away stresses and deep-seated fears of other peoples' hands. Though not included with today's deal, patrons can upgrade to a Swedish, shiatsu pressure-point, Esalen, or hot-stone massage by paying the difference in cost.
Alternately, body benders can gain flexibility while burning fat and stimulating detoxification during five drop-in yoga classes. Ninety-minute hot-yoga classes in the Barkan method crank the heat to stimulate sweat and keep out malevolent snowmen while participants practice pranayamas and strike standing and seated poses. Hot Vinyasa sessions keep bodies moving with flowing posing sequences, and room-temperature yoga stretches students sans heat. With small class sizes, instructors bring a personal attention to group classes that help students grow and bond like valence electrons on a third date. The studio equips students with washcloths, towels, and yoga mats, though clients are welcome to bring their own. Check the online schedule for class times.
