Inner peace is like the Sasquatch—many people claim it's real, but most remain skeptical until the moment it seizes them while meditating on a mountaintop. Today’s Groupon brings the bliss: for $40, you get 10 yoga classes (a $120 value) at Studio Bamboo Yoga in Virginia Beach.
Studio Bamboo is an aptly named yoga center that sprawls over three practice rooms, all beautifully outfitted with real bamboo floors and high ceilings for a truly tranquil, meditative practice environment. Bamboo's flexible schedule of classes is taught by a staff of skilled instructors and include everything from beginning yoga foundations and Vinyasa to specialized classes such as prenatal for women bearing potentially other women, rehabilitative yoga, and hot yoga with a custom heat and vent system.
Whether you're a non-nimble neophyte unlearned in the ways of the downward-facing dobsonfly or a skilled yoga veteran as flexible as Captain Kirk's interspecies dating policy, you'll find something to iron your suit. Relax amongst the neutral hues and plentiful plant life within Studio Bamboo, take a nourishing sip at the green tea station, and fling yourself bodily into the start or continuation of dedicated yoga practice.

"There is no room for ego" in the yoga classes at Studio Bamboo Institute of Yoga, according to its website. There's also no room for the stresses of daily life—they're crowded out by calming earth tones, high ceilings, and floors made from bamboo and river rocks. In this environment, students can easily locate some time for introspection through movement-based classes.
In three practice rooms, instructors lead sessions that embrace the full spectrum of yoga styles, ranging from gentle and meditative to kinetic and physically demanding. They introduce new students to yoga's fundamental poses and breathing exercises while helping them develop a greater sense of self-awareness. Bamboo's flexible schedule of classes is tailored to the needs of everyone from expectant mothers to people living with mobility issues. Hot yoga sessions are also an option, thanks to a custom heat and vent system.
