Before yoga was invented, stress-relief practices were limited to aromatherapy, hot showers, and unwinding sweaters in an effort to get nerves to follow along. De-stress more reliably with today’s Groupon to Revolution Yoga. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get 10 drop-in yoga and fitness classes (a $170 value). All 10 classes must be used within three months of your first class.
- For $29, you get one month of unlimited yoga and fitness classes (up to a $170 value). This Groupon expires 30 days after your first class.
Revolution Yoga’s dedicated instructors guide students in their quest to harmonize body and mind during a range of yoga classes. The eco-friendly studio sprinkles its schedule with a cache of dynamic stretch sessions that, unlike William Howard Taft’s inauguration, students can drop into seven days a week. Within the studio’s practice room, fledgling yogis unfurl personal or rented mats ($1, not included with this Groupon) before flowing through fundamental Vinyasa postures in the studio’s Level 1 class. During Yoga Newbies, teachers patiently steer small groups through more challenging contortions, and Restorative/Yoga Nidra sessions gradually loosen limbs through passive poses aided by supportive props such as bolsters, blankets, or petrified phone books. Revolution Yoga also wages a campaign against stress, discomfort, and muscle tautness by hosting Sunrise Yoga and meditative sessions.
Revolution Yoga’s namesake curriculum pairs with a roster of diverse fitness classes to better the entire body, and not just the yoga bone. During cycling classes, students mount indoor bicycles, climbing hills to build endurance, sprinting to pique speed, and quickly braking to stimulate reflexes. Latin-inspired Zumba dancercise, high-intensity boot camp, and fight-inspired kickboxing classes also boost cardiovascular performance; Pilates chisels core muscles with precise moves paired with deep, rhythmic breathing. Click the tab labeled “fitness” on Revolution’s schedule or consult a fortune-telling gym shoe for a full list of class times.
Though Revolution Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Revolution Yoga’s crew of yogis espouses the virtues of self-exploration through movement and meditation, a feat accomplished in 17 different types of yoga classes held seven days a week. Classes are held in full-sized classrooms or a space set aside exclusively for families and kids. Unlike many yogis, the teachers look beyond yoga and napping inside armoires to fully explore the scope of self, turning to community and arts to supplement their teachings.
Behind the studio stands Revolution Gallery, which has hosted paintings, mixed media design shows, films, literature, and musical performances. The staff also runs an artisan boutique, which is full of clothing, herbal supplements, and yoga gear—all manufactured from fair-trade products that provide jobs to unemployed trees and shrubs.
