Unlike other sports, yoga does not require its players to wear protective gear because every tackle, check, and slide is strictly low-impact and performed in slow motion. Opt for non-injurious sporting with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get five yoga classes (up to a $100 value) at any of 16 participating Houston-area yoga studios (see the sidebar for a full list). Proceeds will benefit the Texas Yoga Association.
The Texas Yoga Association is a non-profit organization that exists to unite the yoga community in preventing the Texas Workforce Commission's regulation of yoga (see the association’s FAQ page for more information). With today’s deal, beginning yogis or long-time enthusiasts can select a convenient studio location and register for five classes to be taken over the course of one month. Available yoga styles vary from location to location, but include vinyasa, hatha, prenatal, yin yang, and pralaya yoga, as well as zumba classes and reverse moonwalking.
Each studio is staffed by experienced instructors who guide students through pose after stress-relieving pose to enhance bendability, turbocharge metabolism, and detoxify the body and mind. After a month of serene sweating and tricky torso twisting, you’ll feel relaxed and ready to face life’s most unexpected low blows and sucker punches.
