The first master yogis bent themselves like twist-ties around their enemies, smothering them with relaxing vibes. Now that all of your human and animal enemies are dead or in exile, today's Groupon offers a similar chance to defeat work-related stress with five yoga classes at Mission Street Yoga for $30 (a $65 value). All five classes must be used within a month of your first class at the airy South Pasadena studio. After that time, unused classes will be sent to the void that holds mismatched socks, misfit toys, and misplaced Noids.
Mission Street's impassioned instructors remix pliable poses from the Anusara tradition into a variety of specialized classes. Options include prenatal, youth, core strengthening, and restorative yoga, among others. With multiple classes every day of the week, the ample schedule prevents prospective flexi-folks from having to contort their day to make a class.
Different poses unblock dammed channels of energy, and deep breathing suffuses the fatigued spirit with renewed vigor, just like blowing into a Nintendo cartridge. Finally become flexible enough to eat your SpaghettiO's with your feet and touch your earlobes together. Most importantly, yoga veterans malleable as warm wax and neophytes unable to touch their toes or hands are equally welcome.
