A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $38, new clients get six yoga classes at St. Paul Yoga Center (a $102 value).
Named Best Yoga Studio by City Pages readers in 2008, St. Paul Yoga Center employs 13 accomplished teachers to lead sessions in a variety of yoga styles seven days a week. With today's deal, Groupon holders can choose from the studio’s class lineup to learn how to salute the sun without hurting the moon's feelings. Basic classes teach students balance and alignment fundamentals with energizing poses and invigorating breath work, and classes for yogis ages 7–12 teach patience and focus. Like many other classes at the studio, Iyengar yoga sessions immerse students in mindfulness, emphasize precise positioning, and use props that bolster strength, flexibility, and a sense of overwhelming wellbeing that is usually only felt when watching community productions of It's a Wonderful Life.
