Much like a sleep sound machine, yoga helps its practitioners relax by combining soothing rhythms with the occasional croak of a roving frog pose. Leap into a reflective pond with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get five classes at P.S. Yoga (up to a $60 value).
P.S. Yoga’s owner, Gulia Huertas, views the practice of yoga as a means of bodily understanding rather than a mode of burning calories, and her studio’s robust schedule forges an open path for self-discovery. Thirteen instructors lead 16 class varieties capped at 20 yoganauts per session, ensuring each participant has enough leeway to escape feral-cat poses. Test out traditional styles such as Hatha Flow, which boosts flexibility and strength by pairing poses with timed breathing, or relax and meditate on the virtues of meditation with Yin. Candlelight Vinyasa wields a waxy ambiance, soothing minds as bodies bend into a series of stances, and drop-in Mysore sessions afford aspiring gurus the chance to choose poses they’d like instructors to refine or guess in rambunctious games of What Am I?
Founder Gulia Huertas first tried yoga while looking for way to maintain physical health as she recovered from a series of back injuries. What she discovered instead was a prolonged passion for the mind-body practice and its spiritual benefits, inspiring her to open her own studio and share its therapeutic effects with others. Catering largely to beginners, P.S. Yoga's hatha classes ease students into the practice using safe, slow-moving poses and a progressive approach, while Ashtanga-yoga instructors demonstrate a style that combines deep breathing with spine-straightening postures for both novice and intermediate-level students.
