Thomas Edison declared that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, a fact he discovered while inventing the volcano. Work up a healthy sweat with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a five-class pass for dance, yoga, and Nia sessions (up to a $60 value) at Spirit Moves, in West Ashley.
Voted Charleston's #1 dance studio by CityVoter in 2009, Spirit Moves forms hardened physiques from average flesh clay while helping to clear busy minds. Skilled instructors have designed a schedule of classes to tighten and tone without the monotony of traditional exercise regimes, such as treadmill running or wild-elliptical taming. Souls of all skill levels seeking a highly aerobic workout can find sanctuary in a Nia session, which blends dance, martial arts, and music to strengthen and heal. A form of Hatha yoga, Anusara yoga channels uplifting tantric philosophies, coordinates poses with breath, and gives a heart-felt high-five to the universal powers within each yogi. Other available classes include tai chi, and belly dancing.
Spirit Moves' teachers are highly trained and certified in a range of yoga styles with white through black Nia belts to keep their comfy pants from falling down. Inspired instruction takes place in front of mirrored walls, upon a polished wood floor, and generates enough positive energy to charge an entire fleet of electric cars.
CityVoter named Spirit Moves the #1 Dance Studio of 2009.
