Without yoga, cowboys wouldn't have the balance to foil cattle's constant attempts to tip them, nor the focus to win the quick-draws that break out on Pictionary Tuesdays. Celebrate Western yoga practices with today's Groupon: for $35, you get five power yoga classes at Om on the Range Yoga in Bucktown (a $70 value).
Studio owners and Chicago natives Annie Range Barclay, Beth Range Kiely, and Terry Kiely founded Om on the Range to allow city-dwelling arms and legs to experience the same ranges of motion as their freewheeling country cousins. At its recently opened Bucktown location, the studio teaches Baptiste Power Vinyasa yoga in a sweat-inducing, muscle-warming environment that simulates stretching peacefully on the lip of an active volcano.
Hot temperatures awaken lazy muscles during 60-, 75-, or 90-minute sessions, and frighten them into extending further than is their wont, fitting more easily into the challenging configurations and vigorous stance-switching demanded by power yoga and Tony Hawk video games.
Cheerful, certified instructors bring new flexibility and sentience to docile limbs, stepping in before they turn on their owners. Bring light clothes and arrive hydrated to reduce the friction on your internal combustion engine. Before setting out, fresh-faced yogaphytes should review Om on the Range's tips page, consult the schedule, and make sure their bodies are not made of dry timber.
While both new and continuing students are welcome to use this Groupon at Om on the Range, the studio offers a $20 week-long introductory discount for new members. Users can purchase this introductory offer separately, and then apply their Groupon toward five consequent classes if they desire.
