In its constant attempt to stay fit, humanity has given in to such unfortunate workout trends as livestock lifting, Spazzercise, and mixed-martial charades. Embrace body and mind fitness that has withstood the test of time with today's Groupon: for $30, you get your choice of five yoga, Pilates, or tai chi classes at Now and Zen Yoga in Lodi (a $65 value). Now and Zen Yoga's roster of instructors leads sessions aimed at enhancing strength, flexibility, and mental stability through challenging poses and relaxing breathing exercises. The wide range of classes targets curious neophytes as well as knowledgeable niche groups, such as runners, expecting mothers, and out-of-work contortionists. Each yoga class kicks off with a limb-limbering warm-up, followed by an invigorating workout, and a closing 5–10 minute meditation. Now and Zen welcomes all ages and fitness levels, with power yoga ratcheting up intensity levels and gentle yoga merely asking participants to whisper Keats poems in the ears of cranky muscles. The studio provides students with mats, but other stretching supplies can be found at the in-house boutique. Check the class schedule for dates and times.
