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 $20, you get a five-class pass to Spira Power Yoga (up to a $60 value).
The savvy mat masters at Spira Power Yoga teach athletic power-yoga classes seven days a week in a new, fully equipped facility. A packed schedule contains classes suitable for yogis spanning the stretch spectrum, from the introductory series for proto-power yogis to Prana flow and advanced power yoga for experienced members. The all-level class brings yogis of all skills together with 60 minutes of posing and flexing through a structured, 53-pose flow. Advanced classes expand veterans' knowledge and muscle memory with inversions, arm balances, and tantric trigonometry poses. Sunday evenings host a gentle restorative class, where students can prepare for another work week with slow stretches, breathing exercises, meditation, and calming candlelight. All classes provide complimentary post-session tea and the chance to socialize with flexible, like-minded classmates.
The lemon-hued studio features a padded vinyl floor and a state-of-the-art heating system that keeps the space at a consistent 90 degrees, providing an ideal atmosphere for stretching and saluting flaming balls of celestial plasma. Disguised superheroes can change in one of Spira Power Yoga's two restrooms and then stash their capes in a handy cubby space. Students should bring their own water, mats, and towels, though mats and towels can be borrowed for an additional fee. Newbies should arrive 20 minutes early to register and go through a brief initiation ritual.
Though Spira Power Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Dora Gyarmati leads her fleet of graceful instructors with the same carefree humor she uses in her own Ashtanga-style yoga classes. After stumbling onto yoga when a passionate affair with running led to an injured knee, Dora realized her love for the low-impact discipline, and over the years has continued her education with advanced teacher training and workshops. Her dedication has created a community of like-minded yogis that welcomes students of all experience and fitness levels to inclusive classes and focused workshops. Cheery yellow walls unadorned by mirrors surround the judgment-free studio as guests breathe, stretch, and brush their spirit animals together.
