The quickest way to digest a holiday feast is to stretch your muscles and tendons into a tryptophan-obliterating machine. Today’s Groupon seeks to relieve food-stress and life-stress with five yoga classes, five Pilates classes, and five free acupressure massages (10 to 15 minutes each) from New Day Yoga at its Kansas City and Overland Park locations for $15 (a $110 value). Under the beloved and highly skilled eye of owner Vlad Rangotchev, New Day has become a Kansas City yoga staple.
New Day Yoga’s friendly, enthusiastic instructors are fully certified and know how to help students sweat and stretch until they're calmer, more energized, and more revitalized than the 236 rechargeable AAA batteries that power the continental United States. If you're new to yoga, this is a great chance to learn the downward dog, upward dog, and the omniscient narrator.
Students of all experience levels will find classes that fit their style with three levels of exertion. Gentle hot yoga for beginners combines the benefits of yoga with the innovation of indoor heating. Core Pilates for the more experienced will make your abs feel like the washboard player at the Opry. The intense workouts of yoga pump, vinyasa yoga, and vinyasa’s saucy cousin hot vinyasa will satisfy even the most learned yogists. For those in need after breaking onto the yoga/Pilates scene, the jade thermal acupressure massage marries modern machinery with ancient finger-kneading to relax your body until it’s deeply sated and stress-free, ready to take on the holidays.
Yoga stretches your muscles, relieving stiffness and pain; it also increases flexibility and strength (deep core muscles support each pose), which will improve your range of motion, balance, and posture, all vital to moving up in the corporate world, seeing over the steering wheel, and slicing your morning bagel. Mix and match the positive attention and healing you bring to your body with a schedule of classes running from around 9 a.m. to mid 6 most weekdays and from morning through afternoon on weekends. New Day gives you multiple options to flexibly schedule your forthcoming flexibility.
- A talented and powerful practitioner, Rangotchev teaches a mean, sweat-drenching vinyasa class but speaks with an endearing Bulgarian accent and adjusts his students with a firm but comforting hand. – The Pitch
- The instructors and people are really nice. I like how each instructor has their own teaching method and the way they challenge you. This is a great studio if you are looking for a place to practice yoga with every day people. – Trang N., Yelp
