In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five drop-in fitness classes at The Mind, Body & Soul Studio in Staten Island. The Mind, Body & Soul Studio’s brand-new location hosts a bevy of heart-pumping fitness classes, including cardio kickboxing, yoga, and Pilates. Dance calorie-laden blues away with a Latin-inspired Zumba fitness class, or turn your midsection into a bellybuttoned boogie zone with a belly-dancing class. Children get plenty of wiggle room in the Mommy & Me Zumba sessions, while youth yoga classes give sprightly stretchers an enlightened edge over couch-potato peers. Scope out the schedule and call ahead to reserve your first class.
- The studio offers a variety of classes such as yoga, Pilates, belly-dancing, cardio-kickboxing, aerobics, fitness and Zumba. But what makes the studio unique is that classes are pay-as-you-go. There is no registration fee or required number of weeks. – Diane Lore, Staten Island Advance
- I had so much fun in Zumba last night! I am definitely coming back tonight for Zumba Toning and the Cardio Kickboxing class was also amazing, the instructor was fantastic and really took the time to show us how to do everything properly. – Natalie, testimonial
The Mind, Body & Soul Studio
The lime-green and grape-purple walls perfectly echo the vivacious spirit of classes at The Mind, Body & Soul Studio. Instructors lead everything from boot camps and core-strengthening workouts to Zumba and belly dancing, and the intimately sized space fosters a supportive rapport in virtually every session. These classes help attendees live healthier and more active lives by incorporating cardio work instead of just showing them places to abandon vegetables on the edge of town.
