People holding yoga poses typically seek self-discipline and control, whereas those holding yoga posters just want Sting's autograph. Find peace while standing still with today's Groupon: for $45, you get one month of unlimited yoga at Mighty Yoga in Ithaca (up to a $125 value).
Mighty Yoga offers a range of Vinyasa-focused classes. Yoganauts can breathe and stretch through the series of postures during the 75-minute power-flow class. As an instructor leads the pliable pack through the sequence of Vinyasa postures, the heated studio warms and loosens muscles for a deeper stretch and more invigorating experience. Power hour condenses a power-flow session into 60 minutes, allowing speedy exercisers and time crunchers to reap the same benefits as the standard power flow, and the meditation class focuses on breath work and body awareness to instill a sense of harmony throughout the physique. For an unorthodox yogic experience, try out the Rockin' Flow class and tackle the intense Vinyasa flow set to a mix of rock music and led by an Elvis impersonator.
As instructors move through the flowing postures of the Vinyasa style of yoga, the studio’s vintage oak floors gently creak in time. The constant movement builds up an internal heat in students' cores, reminiscent of the sunlight pouring through picture windows and reflecting off the yellow walls. These open sessions invite practitioners of any ability, although beginner level and advanced courses gear lessons to more specific needs and mats not quite ready to unroll all the way. Mighty Yoga’s mission is to openly welcome those seeking the gifts of yoga practice, lavished on not only the body in the form of increased flexibility, but also on the mind in the form of increased calmness. That’s why the studio’s instructors constantly repay those gifts by hosting donation-based workshops that give back to local, national, and international charities.
