Though daily stretching has been shown to temporarily elongate muscles, long-term lengthening can only be achieved with a combination of Pilates and crazy glue. Help your body weed through mixed messaging with today's Groupon: for $59, you get three group Allegro reformer classes and two group mat classes at South Miami Pilates (a $120 value). Groupon customers can also take advantage of 10% off a future class package.
South Miami Pilates’ highly trained instructors guide students through a regimen of workouts to build core strength, overall health, and a sense of well-being. Allegro reformer classes (a $90 value) use the reformer apparatus and solidify the mind-body relationship with visualization techniques, such as picturing the Harlem Globetrotters on the moon. Classes take place with up to four practitioners, allowing maximum interaction and form-tweaking between instructors and students. This Groupon waives the Allegro Reformer class’s typical prerequisite of two private lessons, allowing exercisers to jump right in. Meanwhile, two group mat classes (a $30 value) fuse breathing techniques with exercises targeting the abs, buttocks, and back, helping to increase mobility and limit back pain and allowing students to kiss their own shoulder blades.
