What You'll Get
Yoga challenges the mind and body without the violence and hurt feelings of full-contact chess. Steer clear of overaggressive pawns with today's Groupon: for $35, you get 10 classes at Sumits Yoga (a $110 value).
Inside a balmy 104-degree studio, students of all skill levels follow attentive instructors though 75-minute flowing yoga classes. During classes seven days a week, pupils explore an integrated style of yoga inspired by both Bikram and Ashtanga power-flow traditions. Sumit's beginners hot-yoga practice leads newbies through a sequence of balancing and energizing physical postures, called asanas, set to motivating music. The practice room's hot and humid atmosphere warms and relaxes muscles more effectively than a bear hug from an actual bear, helping yogis to reach deeper stretches, rid their bodies of toxins, and build stamina. As the class progresses, challenging poses help to strengthen muscles while simultaneously honing important life skills such as patience, determination, and cobra impersonations.
Because students will loose a nimbus cloud's worth of precipitation during each sweat session, instructors encourage participants to bring plenty of water along with a mat and a towel.
