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 $35, you get 10 yoga classes at Shanti Yoga in Virginia Beach (a $100 value).
Shanti Yoga's experienced instructors guide students through muscle-building poses and calming respiration exercises during Vinyasa Flow and specialty yoga classes. Learn deep-breathing methods and how to lure stand-up comedians back into their cages in Laughing yoga classes, during which students practice guffawing to saturate their lungs with oxygen and let go of tension. Blossoming yogis glean the essentials during 45-minute Beginning Basics classes, and more advanced students work to master standing poses and build core strength during athletic Power Yoga sessions. A rotating monthly schedule features classes up to seven days a week so students have the flexibility to hang onto their jobs as on-call racehorse hypnotists.
