Yoga emphasizes seamless transition between poses, a skill set adopted by the Navy to teach cursive flag semaphore to its sailors. Spell out serene stances with today's Groupon: for $40, you get 10 yoga classes at Pura Vida Wellness Spa in Pinellas Park (a $90 value).
Pura Vida Wellness Spa yogini Stephanie Carroll leads daily yoga classes in a cornucopia of styles. During Hot Yoga, Carroll limbers limbs with an intense yet beginner-friendly fusion of strength-building poses in a 90- to 100-degree room, and Hatha Vinyasa–style Yoga Flow helps students develop the strength and balance to become Mr. Unicycle Universe. Restorative Slow Flow focuses on breath work and easing tension, and Yogalates adds an infusion of core-supporting Pilates to stretch sessions. The small classes max out at 10 elastic tenderfeet so that the instructor can provide more personal attention and reenact memorable classes with finger puppets.
Pura Vida Wellness Spa
Led by massage therapist and colon hydrotherapist Kathleen Leslie, the natural-care practitioners at Pura Vida Wellness Spa specialize in pharmaceutical-free healing. Services include detoxifying therapies such as infrared-sauna sessions and several massage modalities and medical-grade skin care and waxing along with ionic foot detoxes. Their bread-and-butter service, though, is colonic irrigation, which Leslie's team uses to address numerous ailments, such as bloating, migraines, and insomnia.
