Yoga teaches people how to sustain poses while still breathing, a skill most yogis use to live undetected in wax museums. Trick a tourist with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 10-class punch card at Moksha Yoga Dartmouth (a $140 value). This Groupon is for new students only.
The stretching experts at Moksha Yoga lead a variety of daily classes that combine techniques from various practices including the Moksha yoga discipline. During hot yoga, the studio boosts rooms to Stanley Cup–hug temperatures to allow muscles to stretch more deeply and pupils to sweat out toxins. Moksha Flow emphasizes harmony between breath and movement by following the Vinyasa sequence of poses, and Yin Yoga allows participants to meditate during seated stretches. Erudite body benders educate students of all skill levels, so even the least experienced will learn to elongate muscles and transform into human rubber band guns. The studio asks students to provide their own mats and towels (or rent them from the studio) and arrive to the 60- to 90-minute classes at least 15 minutes early.
Though Moksha Yoga Dartmouth offers a $40 unlimited monthly pass to new clients online, this Groupon allows new clients to stretch 10 classes out over a longer period of time.
Shanti Hot Yoga
Within Shanti Hot Yoga, heat flows from radiant-heating panels and mirrors reflect glowing wall sconces as students bend and flow through postures. Led by certified instructors, classes conform to Shanti Hot Yoga’s values, using the 60- to 90-minute sessions to help students to be healthy, accessible, and peaceful. With a focus on community and eco-awareness, the instructors lead classes for all experience levels, offering help to students who have accidentally super-glued themselves to the cork flooring. The heated studio helps to deepen stretches, and classes provide benefits such as decreased stress, improved posture, and the ability to control the urge to smash buildings when enraged.
