Yoga challenges the mind and body, providing a graceful alternative to full-contact chess. Gently refine mental-physical teamwork with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a five-class pass valid for any drop-in yoga classes at P3 Yoga & Athletic Training Studio in Pickering (an $85 value).
Named the best yoga studio in Eastern Canada in Get Out There Magazine's Readers' Choice awards, P3 Yoga challenges body benders of all experience levels with one-hour traditional and fusion yoga classes. A five-class pass grants users access to drop-in courses taught by a fully certified international instructor team. In Hatha Level I-II, coaches guide posing neophytes through sequential discovery of foundational asana postures, breathing, energy locks, and meditation with the aid of props such as straps, blocks, and emotionally supportive welcome mats. Hatha Level II-III's advanced instructor delves into more complex contortion theory with inversions and back bends, catering to experienced practitioners and training teachers. Studio founder Suzanne Hennig introduces her own custom technical blend in TYA Athlete yoga sessions, leading athletes in sequences tuned to hone sports performance as well as aid injury reduction and recovery. Each session is tailored to students' chosen sports discipline, training goals, and personal interpretation of a soft pretzel.
In Zero-Gravity aerial yoga sessions, Hennig employs a low-hanging fabric sling to gift partial weightlessness for aerial poses. Slings enable students to learn advanced bending practices at a faster pace, allowing experimentation, fun, and falcon impressions with minimal effort. As students perform suspended asanas, they progress from suspending only part of their body weight in the sling to leaving the floor entirely. Students may also share slings, allowing each member of the pair to switch between aerial and traditional floor practice throughout the class. Classes guide pupils to develop upper-body and core stability, flexibility, and strength through gravity-defiant stretches and deep-muscle release. Students exercise in a bright, inviting space on dark wood floors surrounded by high, plain white walls—adorned only with a large red namaste symbol and botanical headshots.
