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 $35, you get a five-class yoga pass to Sunshine Studio in Orland Park (a $75 value).
Sunshine Studio guides pupils on the path to inner and outer harmony, instructing a slew of yoga classes within a clean, calm, haven of health. A seven-day schedule welcomes benders of all levels to sessions including Hatha yoga––which focuses on fine-tuning basic poses at a moderate pace––and slow flow, an ideal class for those looking to transition from Hatha to Vinyasa or those who are slowly metamorphosing into lava. More advanced mat-letes can tackle the studio's higher-level coursework under the guidance of an expert staff. Build up to constant, controlled breath-pose circuits in Vinyasa to achieve the ultimate body, mind, and spirit connection and then peak with Forrest yoga, which combines intense poses with heat to perspire away bodily toxins and recurring nightmares about tap-dancing fauns.
Sunshine Yoga & Pilates
At Sunshine Yoga & Pilates, radiance comes from within. The teachers embrace yoga as a holistic health treatment, combining it with other forms of exercise—such as Pilates—known to strengthen the body while alleviating or preventing injury. Outside of the classroom, massage therapists soothe muscles with seven distinct modalities, including therapeutic massage, acupressure, and hot-stone massage.
The studio's spa technicians also coax out each client's inner light with rejuvenating skin care and body treatments. Customized to meet the needs of all skin types, their revitalizing facial restores lost youth with a full package of hydration, cleansing, and exfoliation. Technicians also rid clients of negative energy, removing pent-up toxins with ear candling and ionic foot baths and restoring respiratory clarity with aromatherapy-based raindrop therapy.
