A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $50, you get eight yoga classes at Om Yoga in Fort Mill, SC (up to a $100 value).
The passionate staff at Om Yoga sets students on the path toward inner tranquility with an accessible spread of yoga classes held throughout the week. The power flow and power mixed sessions stream through intermediate poses set to upbeat music, inspiring bodies to build muscle through a challenging cardiovascular workout. Hot yoga instructors lead motions within the sweltering confines of a heated room, guaranteeing that students sweat in order to banish both bodily toxins and stowaway ice cubes. Novice posers develop a stable foundation in twisting techniques during yoga basics classes that cover the benefits of matching breaths as you move through postures. Meditate through the deep stretch course, where muscles hold still through extended poses supported by studio-provided props or couches brought from home.
Om Yoga's bright studio establishes an environment that, unlike competitive glaring bees, relaxes and supports every participant. Classes face a large photograph of sunbeams streaming though the swaying boughs of a tree hanging from the wall between windows covered by gauzy curtains. Onsite showers and changing areas allow students to change before or after workouts so business suits don't have to sport pools of perspiration from early-morning workouts.
Though Om Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Nine teachers. Twelve styles of classes. Seven days of class per week. Whether they’re expectant mothers, 7-year-old children, or lifelong power-yoga practitioners, yogis come to Om Yoga’s studio to practice their chosen ancient body-bending art. In each class, the instructors adhere to the eight-limbed philosophy of Ashtanga yoga, modifying the poses and stretches for students of all experience levels.
Many studios focus solely on two principles of yoga: asanas (poses) and pranayama (breath control). However, Om Yoga’s teachers focus on a practice that involves all eight aspects of this traditional art, which include such intangibles as morality, self-observation, and even the ability to control the senses, a helpful trick when staring into the sun while standing next to an angry skunk.
