Practicing yoga increases breath awareness, which is why yogis compose all barbershop quartets. Get in harmony with yourself with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get five classes at Namaste Yoga Center (a $65 value).
Namaste Yoga's airy studio and supportive instructors beckon yogis of all stripes to practice free of pressure. The seven-day schedule caters to benders' needs, with an Intro to Flow course that guides fledgling mat-letes through a slow-moving mélange of moves that focus on proper posture. As yogis master moves, more challenging sessions, such as Vinyasa Flow, pique stability, stoke endurance, and incorporate more twists than a dance-off between pipe cleaners. For the most seasoned yoganauts, AcroYoga launches stretch work into another stratosphere by way of inversions, partner posing, basic acrobatics, and dynamic flying.
First-timers can borrow a mat from the studio for the first lesson, and rent them afterward for future sessions or to use as hot pads when handling over-sized lasagnas. Centered on a semi-circular instructor's stage, Namaste Yoga's sprawling golden-walled studio glows gently with the light of opulent chandeliers.
