Inner peace is like the Sasquatch—many people claim it's real, but most remain skeptical until the moment it seizes them while meditating on a mountaintop. Today’s Groupon brings the bliss: for $29, new clients get one month of unlimited classes at Purple Yoga, a $159 value. This deal is good at both Purple's Long Beach and Fullerton studios. Each one features about 50 classes a week for beginner, intermediate, and pretzeled yogis, as well as locker rooms and mat and towel service.
Yoga is a great way to stay toned and limber while temporarily storing worldly worries in a drawer with knick-knacks, spare change, and shrunken heads. Like a chameleon trapped in a box of Crayolas, each class transforms yoga into a different shade while remaining the same at its core. Classes range in difficulty and specialty, including such varieties as Vinyasa Flow, Hot Yoga, and other conveniently color-coded courses. Intense red classes incinerate fat, whereas the blue series keeps things slower and steadier. View the upcoming schedule for Long Beach here and Fullerton here.
The dedicated instructors at Purple bring years of experience and buckets of motivation to guide your body and mind overhaul. Recruit the guys from your sewing circle or the ladies from your crocodile-wrestling club to join you on your one-month journey across the yogaverse. Feed off the energy of friends to increase stimulation and add another friendly face into a sea of friendly faces.
