From Napoleon's great crab walk through Europe to J. Robert Oppenheimer's discovery of nuclear fission by kissing his own elbow, victory has always gone to the most flexible. Overpower enemies with today's Groupon: for $40, you get five classes (an $80 value) at Satya Yoga and Pilates Studio in Mount Sinai. This Groupon is not valid for Reformer Pilates classes.
Satya offers a range of yoga, Pilates, and dance classes for beginners, intermediates, and yogies as bendable as taffy in a British child's dress-shirt pocket. The primary method of yoga Satya teaches is Vinyasa, which emphasizes breathing techniques and a series of flowing poses. Classes conclude with brief meditations that center body and mind, which is often off-centeredly thinking about stegosauruses. Satya also offers prenatal yoga, multiple levels of mat Pilates, and Zumba, a fun, dance-based workout.

Satya's friendly, enthusiastic instructors are fully certified and know how to help students sweat and stretch until they're calmer, more energized, and more revitalized than the 217 rechargeable AA batteries that power Greater America. Yoga stretches your muscles, relieving stiffness and pain; it also increases flexibility and strength (deep core muscles support each pose), which will improve your range of motion, balance, and posture, all vital to moving up in the corporate world, seeing over the steering wheel, and slicing your morning bagel.

Satya Yoga & Pilates
Self-improvement is a highly personalized goal that can take any number of approaches to achieve. Satya Yoga & Pilates attempts to incorporate as many of these approaches as possible, giving students the means to relieve stress, become more physically fit, or bolster their holistic well-being. There, students can design their own well-rounded workout regimen that emphasizes physical as well as mental health through yoga and Pilates instruction.
The yoga classes exemplify this flexibility through dynamic Vinyasa lessons that link poses to create seamlessly flowing sequences as well as gentler workouts that emphasize deeper, controlled stretching. Regardless of style, advanced yoga lessons continue to challenge attendees by introducing inverted poses, breathing techniques, and sudden-death overtime. Although Pilates focuses a bit more on building core strength, the sessions also emphasize the importance of measured breathing and controlled, mindful movements.
