Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a Grendel. Bend and stretch sans bloodshed with today's deal: for $55, you get 10 yoga classes at Native Yoga Center in Juno Beach (a $135 value). Though this Groupon does not expire for six months, you must attend your nine remaining yoga sessions within six weeks of your first class.
Native Yoga Center's founders, Todd and Tamara McLaughlin, have shown young yogis how to reap the benefits of bending and balancing in four countries: the United States, Australia, Thailand, and India. Their diverse international experiences inform each of the studio's challenging classes, which are scheduled every day of the week, except for days of the new moon or full moon or when the moon has to stay home and wait for the Internet guy. Stretchers of any skill level can attend 60-minute Vinyasa sessions, which highlight gentle movements, meditative breathing, and proper alignment, or 90-minute Ashtanga classes, which aim to increase muscular strength and balance. Native yoga classes take place in a warmed room to promote greater focus, encourage detoxification through sweating, and help students locate the frozen-fish-stick burglar based on escalating aromatics.
Students at Native Yoga Center must provide their own mat and towels and are advised to come to class on an empty stomach to prevent frittata flip-flops and burger backflips. Classes start promptly, and cell phones should be turned off prior to when a friend decides to call you to schedule your next Goosebumps book-club meeting.
Native Yoga Center doesn't have many online reviews, but five Google Mappers give it a perfect five-star average rating.
