Sun salutations are a necessary ritual that keeps our solar body from growing angry and burning libelous graffiti on the Hubble telescope. Help keep cosmic peace with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get three drop-in yoga classes at Root Yoga Center (up to a $45 value).
Inside Root Yoga Center's sun-filled loft space, a staff of instructors works with students of all skill levels to cultivate a casual, welcoming atmosphere for yoga practice that CBS Denver called one of the Top Places for Yoga in 2011. The studio's class schedule brims with different styles of yoga, including Forrest, Vinyasa, and Anusara, which blend physical challenges with relaxing stretches. During Forrest yoga, students work to release emotional pain, chemical toxins, and fireflies swallowed during yodeling competitions by performing long-held poses while honing concentration with deep-breathing exercises. Yoga Playground, an advanced Forrest yoga–style class, dares seasoned yogis to tackle back bends, arm balances, and other moves that defy gravity. During Vinyasa classes held every day of the week, Vinyasa teachers weave yogic breathing and balance-building poses into a flow more enchanting than a mobile made of pan flutes.
Though Root Yoga Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Root Yoga Center
Root Yoga Center's owners created their studio to give clients a space to explore their metaphorical roots by examining their physical, spiritual, and emotional bodies through yoga practice. This goal is reflected in the studio’s philosophy, which emphasizes balance, encourages beginners to take risks, and focuses on the healing powers of yoga epitomized by the now-famous "Kiss the Boo Boo" pose. From Vinyasa to Forrest and Anusara Flow, many yoga modalities are practiced in the studio depending on the class session’s teacher and difficulty level.
Every teacher at Root Yoga Center is an experienced yogi and puts the school's philosophy into practice during regular classes or supplemental practices such as qi gong, physical therapy, and nutritional counseling. The instructors’ schedules are packed as well: classes take place all day, every day, and the staff routinely hosts community events and workshops.
