What You'll Get
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 $29, you get a five-class pass at the Lotus Centre on Prescott Street (a $60 value). Founded by Meranda Squires—a spiritual guide with 17 years of training from an Indian guru—the Lotus Centre is a spiritual community that provides yoga, meditation, and other mind-body group activities. Yoga veterans malleable as warm wax and neophytes unable to touch their toes are equally welcome to the variety of yoga classes conducted within the Lotus Centre's open, spacious studio. Gentle yoga eases the aches of students recovering from an injury or an especially exacting performance review, and the Hatha yoga style encourages class members to crunch their cores and flex their way to stretchy serenity. Call ahead to schedule a class. Yoga mats are available at no extra cost.

About The Lotus Centre
The Lotus Centre’s focus on yoga and meditation reflects founder Meranda Squires’ extensive study of holistic health in India. In 1983, Squires travelled to the birthplace of yoga and stayed for 17 years, immersing herself in the practice’s basic tenets. Now, she shares her wisdom during Soma and Hatha yoga classes, each with gentle flows that build strength, agility, and enough flexibility to pat yourself on the head after strapping yourself into a straitjacket. In addition to leading classes, teachers meet with students for one-on-one yoga-therapy sessions that focus on individual challenges, and administer Thai yoga massages that reduce muscle tension through guided stretching. The Lotus Centre also offers retreats that combine yoga with meditation to help participants find inner clarity and direction.
