Yoga is a much easier way to exercise both mind and body than testing Einstein's theory of relativity by racing a beam of light. Avoid a science-related sprain with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 10-class yoga pass to Shine Wellness Space in New Westminster (a $120 value). Online registration is required.
In addition to being a hub for open-minded truth seekers, Shine Wellness Space boasts supportive and experienced instructors who lead students through a variety of Yin and Restorative Yoga classes alongside sessions in other yoga styles. Stressed limbs stretch out tension in Restorative Yoga, which sequences restful postures to balance the body's parasympathetic nervous system. During Yin Yoga, students focus on connective tissue, incorporating the use of soft pillows and supportive blocks while in floor postures. Pupils with crowded schedules can report to quicker, 75-minute Hatha or Fusion Yoga classes, and those taking the day off for national Ferrari Joyride Day can bask in the unhurried restfulness of 2 Hour Yin classes.
Handsome hardwood floors awash in natural light support class-goers as they unfurl complimentary Jade yoga mats in preparation for the studio's copious morning, afternoon, and evening classes. Each session has a maximum of 12 students per class in a boutique-style setting, ensuring the soothing camaraderie of group yoga immediately followed by animated games of Twister.
