Holding a yoga pose builds strength, discipline, and immunity to motion-sensor devices. Today’s Groupon lets you pose your way through life without detection: for $10, you get two weeks of unlimited yoga at Sumits Yoga Gilbert in Gilbert (a $20 value).
Sumits Yoga Gilbert fuses traditional Bikram-style hot yoga with invigorating power flow movements, heating up the body to achieve maximum wellness, detoxification, and flexibility. With two different class styles on the schedule, beginning sun-saluters and expert yogis alike can practice together in the heat- and humidity-equipped studio. Sweat away worries about chronic sweating during the original Sumits Yoga class, which uses Ashtanga power-flow to increase strength, flexibility, and stamina for all levels of practitioners. More advanced students can stretch limbs in the Sumits Power Flow class, which focuses on Vinyasa-style poses to sync up the body, mind, and both of your souls in a powerful cardiovascular workout.
Experienced instructors flit about the cozy, wood-floored studio, paying close attention to alignment and helping students if they get stuck in a tricky asana. The peaceful marble reception area boasts rental mats and drinks, and showers and changing rooms hide beyond the front desk. After using the Groupon, customers receive 20% off their first package of classes.
Sumits Yoga Gilbert
Classes at Sumits Yoga Gilbert aren't quite like those found at any other yoga studio. That's because they were specifically developed by studio founder Sumits Banerjee. His classes act as an amalgam of two popular styles, fusing the heat of Bikram yoga with the fluid postures of the Ashtanga tradition. The Sumits Yoga signature class steers students through deep stretches performed in a toasty studio. As they flow from pose to pose, aided by the heat, students hone both balance and strength while calming the mind.
Though practitioners champion the physical benefits of the practice—muscle toning and detoxification chief among them—the true object of the style is “the simple pleasure and self-reward that comes from quieting our minds." To honor this, instructors emphasize introspection and spiritual awareness over perfect technique, allowing guests of any experience level to participate.
