What You'll Get
Astronauts regularly practice yoga to stay limber, modulate their breathing, and control their crippling fear of being eaten by the moon. Emulate the habits of cosmic pioneers with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get 12 classes at Shafa Yoga (a $120 value). All classes must be used within 45 days of the first session attended.
Founder Newsha Sarafha shares her passion for therapeutic yoga with students of all skill levels during yoga sessions that combine physical exertion and introspective meditation. The studio’s schedule divvies up attendees by experience, including in the Hatha yoga classes, which enlist invigorating sequences of asanas to help bolster strength and posture before drawing focus inward with mindful meditation and candle-snuffing breath control. Instructors cap class attendance at 12 in order to ensure personalized attention and quality high-fives for each aspiring yogi, safely introducing Level 1 students to posture fundamentals and guiding the continuing students at Level 2 classes through poses intended to open the hips and shoulders. Abs Yoga modifies the traditional sun salutation into a regimen of straightforward exercises that tighten core muscles. Although instructors recommend that students stretch out atop their own mats, the studio does stockpile yoga mats that guests can rent ($1), buy ($15+), or adopt if they pass a rigorous background check.
