Star athletes thrive during the peak of heated competition, which is why most Super Bowls are held in volcanoes. Stretch the limits of your limbs with today's Groupon: for $35, you get 10 yoga classes at OceanaFit in San Clemente (up to a $150 value).
The friendly staff at OceanaFit tinkers with its patrons' postures and the studio's thermostat to achieve homeostatic relaxation. With a schedule of more than 40 classes a week, even people without pencils can find time to pencil in sessions. OceanaFit's class offerings include introductory sessions, which focus on the alignment, postures, and breathing central to Vinyasa-style yoga, and subsequent classes apply those skills in hotter environments. OceanaFit makes both yoga veterans malleable as warm wax and neophytes unable to touch their toes feel equally welcome.
Ample parking and a spacious interior were equally important when owners Megan and Bernie Wohlfarth scouted out their perfect stress-reducing studio. And to keep things even more relaxed, guests are asked to wear comfortable, fitted clothing and arrive 15 minutes early for class. A bottle of water, a towel, and a mat are required, but the latter two can be rented from the studio for $2 and water occasionally falls from the sky for free.
