What You'll Get
Having bested your uncle in the season’s most grueling pumpkin-pie-eating contest yet, bring equilibrium back to your soul and turkey-clogged body with today’s deal: four weeks of intro Pilates or yoga classes at Maya Whole Health Studio for $30 (a $60 value). Choose whichever strikes your fancy and find a class on the schedule that fits into your busy day-to-day of work, house cleaning, and naval raids. Maya offers classes every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
Maya's introductory yoga class is ideal for those with little yogic experience (known in some circles as out-of-body inexperience). Experienced and caring teachers will teach you the fundamentals of alignment, basic poses, breathing, relaxation techniques, and stretching and strengthening exercises,. For a more challenging, core-blasting workout, Maya's Pilates intro class gives you a foundation of mat Pilates basics that will build on itself with each passing week.
There’s no taking back what you’ve eaten. As Shakespeare said, "The evil that pies do outlives them; the good is oft interred in our hips." But you can integrate the sweet ghosts of pumpkins past into your freshly fine-tuned machine of a body. To keep yourself motivated, buy a few Groupons as gifts for friends, frenemies, enefriends, and Superfriends.

Poetry of the Body
In addition to being great for you physically and mentally, yoga is also an art of self-expression, paralleled only, perhaps, by the limerick. The real magic, however, happens when the arts of yoga and limerick come together:
There once was a flexible gal,
Whose yogic skills never did fail,
When forgetting her keys,
She just pulled in her knees,
And squeezed through the slot for the mail.
Genevieve’s yogic technique,
Was in serious need of critique,
But her clumsy half-lotus,
Made classmates take notice,
And to her, they chose not to speak.
There was an old Yogi of note,
Who was heard to have said, and I quote,
“It is better to bend,
In the presence of friends,
Barring friends, one could use a small goat.”
