Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get five Zumba classes at The Jamar Enlightenment Center in Palm Beach Gardens (up to a $75 value).
Zumba classes fill The Jamar Enlightenment Center with joyful Latin-inspired dance moves and rhythms from around the world. Led by Jeanne Knott, an AFAA-certified fitness instructor, each 60-minute workout torches calories with easy-to-follow choreography inspired by hot salsas, smooth merengues, and melty nacho-cheese dips. As arms swing and feet prance, muscles throughout the body gain strength and definition. To ensure that pupils get individualized attention and enough space to make snow angels in the off chance of an indoor blizzard, each class closes its doors after admitting 25 students. Classes are scheduled on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Though The Jamar Enlightenment Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Jamar Enlightenment Center
Founder and lead instructor Jamar has spent more than 25 years empowering students to take control of their lives by sharing his own inner journey through yoga. A certified Kripalu yoga instructor and meditation teacher, Jamar infuses each session of focused breathing and movement with his dedication for seeking the Higher Self. The yoga studio's dark wood flooring, green earth tones, and tranquil lighting cultivate a relaxing environment where students peacefully work their way through the Hatha-style poses paired with meditation and inner reflection, striving to calm the mind's constant nagging about remembering to breathe. The studio hosts more than 30 classes and workshops each month— including Zumba, belly dance, hoop, and tai chi, in addition to yoga—as well as regular presentations from guest speakers. Just beyond the meditation floor lies a metaphysical gallery of books, jewelry, healing stones, and crystals to supplement students' practice.
