The first master yogis bent themselves like twist-ties around their enemies, smothering them with relaxing vibes. Now that all of your human and animal enemies are dead or in exile, today's Groupon offers a chance to defeat work-related stress at Open Doors Yoga Studios. This Groupon can be used at the studios in North Cambridge, Roslindale, Canton, Duxbury, East Bridgewater, Easton, Hanover, Hingham, North Attleboro, North Scituate, Westwood, Weymouth, and the Dorchester location opening on November 1. This Groupon is not valid at the Braintree location. Choose between two options, both of which include mat rental:

- $25 for five drop-in classes (a $70 value)
Open Doors Yoga Studios offer 60–90 minute power yoga classes performed in a heated space to help purge your system of pesky toxins. As you move through a sequence of positions, you’ll feel your muscles and tendons soften into gumbyesque suppleness as you build strength and sweat out tension from every pore. Beginning power-yoga classes are high in instruction and low on intensity, with room temperatures less than or equal to 80 degrees. Moderate classes in 80–90 degree heat are also suitable for novice stretchers as well as experienced benders. A full power-yoga class heats your body and strengthens your core at 90 degrees or higher for an intensely satisfying schvitz session. Lukewarm and room-temperature classes are available at some locations.
Open Doors Yoga Studios are strategically scattered throughout the Boston metropolitan area for ease of access to help students achieve ease of flexibility. There is a shiny new studio in Roslindale and one in North Cambridge, which boasts free parking. Each location keeps a staff of the stretchiest, most experienced instructors, men and women willing and eager to put people on the path to health, fitness, and limbo glory. Check the schedule at each location to determine class offerings.
For unlimited yoga, you must finish two weeks before expiration date. For the five-class pack, you must use all five within eight weeks of first class.
Though not all studios have been reviewed, Yelpers give the Weymouth location an average of four stars, and five Yelpers at the Hanover location give the studio a perfect five-star average. Open Doors Yoga Studios boast more than 650 Facebook fans.
Open Doors Yoga Studios
Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.
