What You'll Get
Ever since Descartes' fear of secret conspiracies among the toes led him to posit a strict mind/body divide, it's fallen to aikido and yoga to reunite them. Harmonize your dual nature with today's Groupon: for $30, you get ten yoga and aikido classes at North Valley Aikikai in Granada Hills (up to a $120 value).
North Valley Aikikai hosts a copious calendar of dynamic aikido and serene yoga classes scheduled throughout the week. Aikido is a non-competitive meld of martial arts and pacifist philosophy that focuses on defense and redirecting aggressive force, preventing injury to both aggressor and aggressed. Concentrating on throws and arresting joint-locks, aikido also promotes a holistic approach to fitness and peaceful conflict-resolution skills that provide an alternative to settling pizza topping disputes with a chokehold. Children's classes help kids ages 5–12 gain a new awareness of themselves, their peers, and their environment as they develop discipline and self-defense techniques.
Yoga classes keep foe-flippers limber on a nearly daily basis. Vinyasa Flow yoga fluidly transitions from position to position as practitioners respire, maintaining all the smoothness and majestic grace of a Mount Rushmore-shaped jello mold. As they enter, students are calmed with every step by the studio's Japanese mat floors, natural wood accents, calligraphic artwork, and scattered bamboo.
