Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a Grendel. Bend and stretch bloodlessly with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes at Sol Yoga in La Jolla (a $149 value).
Sol Yoga's sweeping expanses of polished wood glisten invitingly under low-key lighting, beckoning visitors to rollick through the extensive schedule in the studio's tightly climate-controlled digs. Shed tension with the warmth of the sun beneath high-tech radiant heating panels, which maintain class temperatures of 95 degrees Fahrenheit and higher to tenderize tendons and ward off drippy snowmen. Teachers of elasticity lead one-hour introductory sessions, which establish fundamentals and prepare students to forge powerful cores and regal poise as they soar into more advanced courses. Delight in a pliable multitude of Vinyasa power flow offerings that link poses together and promote better balance.
As a member of the Green Yoga Association, Sol Yoga built its elegant facilities eco-consciously with recycled and energy-saving materials and components, and the studio is entirely bereft of pernicious volatile organic compounds. Private showers and changing rooms accommodate clients in luxury, and ultraviolet-light-cleansed and HEPA-filtered air pampers precious lungs by locking out dust and grime like Mr. Bubble's panic room.
Recognized by the Green Yoga Association for its eco-friendly space, Sol Yoga helps students trim down and limber up while treading lightly on the environment. Inside the softly lit practice room, yogis stretch in the sun-like warmth that shines down from overhead radiant heat panels, loosening up tight muscles, and escorting toxins from the body through pores. HEPA filters fill the studio with fresh air while sustaining a relentless, merciless rampage against odors, airborne contaminants, and dust bunnies disguised as dust people. After cleansing their bodies and minds during vigorous Vinyasa power flows, students relax in the spa-like locker room complete with hardwood lockers, slate-tiled floors, and private showers.
