Yoga originated after a scientist studied amoeba and decided to replicate the positions he observed. For $55, today's side deal gets new students one month of unlimited yoga at the new Pilates ProWorks ($140 value). Classes in vinyasa yoga and ashtanga yoga are taught by expert instructors who lead willing students toward their physical best through long stretches and concentrated postures. You must activate your membership within six months of purchase.
While many think of yoga as a slow-paced series of held positions, vinyasa yoga and ashtanga yoga emphasize the flow from one pose to the next in order to keep the body and a student's column of breathing in motion. Breathing connects to mobility and deep muscle stretches that loosen and tone limbs while strengthening a pupil's core. With unlimited yoga classes scheduled around noontime and evenings throughout the week, dedicated practitioners can get into a rhythm of rewarding their body and soothing their busy minds.
Pilates ProWorks recently opened and there are no reviews of the yoga yet, but Daily Candy and the Examiner's SF Wellness Examiner featured the studio's impressive new Pilates machines, and two Yelpers give it four stars:
- …if you've been looking for a great neighborhood workout studio and aren't necessarily going to care if they don't also have ellipticals and weight machines, then this is definitely your place! Yoga + Pilates = Love! – Lindsay M., Yelp
