Ancient yogis were famed for their ability to live in solitude, to exist in peace with nature, and to turn into raccoons whenever they were near a garbage can. Transform yourself into a beacon of stretchy peace with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a five-class series at Sundari Yoga in Stroudsburg.
The skilled instructors of Sundari Yoga stretch and flex aspiring yogis to more enlightened states of mind and body. A legion of ligament-loosening classes awaits students of all abilities and rubber compositions, including beginner yoga, which eases new students into the poses, intricate three-part harmonies, and breath work of the yogic arts, as well as the more advanced Ashtanga class, a physically demanding fusion of postures and strenuous flows to boost endurance and increase balance. Those looking to shed stress and fluff stiff think pillows can join Zen flow, a sinewy session focusing on dynamic stretch work and meditative Zen philosophy and techniques. Though some of Sudari Yoga's classes are for all levels, other sessions require a certain amount of proficiency; students can assess their skill level by consulting with Sudari's instructors.
Within its cozy studio, Sundari Yoga creates an encouraging, open-spirited atmosphere where students are free to explore different disciplines and yoga preferences. Bodies can be bent seven days a week and at various times of the day, making the schedule as flexible as the instructors' spandex stockpile.
Sundari Yoga has been featured in Northeast Pennsylvania Natural Awakenings magazine.
