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 $25, you get 25 classes at Serendipity Yoga in Ferndale (a $275 value).
The approachable, experienced flexperts at Serendipity Yoga guide students though challenging postures and mindful breathing exercises with a sharp eye for proper form and alignment. The studio’s accommodating schedule boasts a diverse roster of yoga styles, from mat-heavy classes that are good for beginners to muscle-reforming sessions that challenge seasoned pros. Newbies can dip their toes into the yoga pool with a slower paced style called Hatha Flow, where teachers encourage core strength, proper alignment, and breath control to promote body awareness. More advanced Manipura Vinyasa challenges the body, the mind, and the spirit animal with high temperatures and muscle-quivering posture flow as yogis school their breathing like a pop-quiz-loving substitute teacher. Alternatively, calming Moonlight Flow classes employ restorative poses and soothing tunes to help students to wind down to sleepy time, giving yogis the tools they need to grab a peaceful night’s rest once they've wished their collection of stuffed penguins goodnight.
