Yoga is one of the world's oldest forms of exercise, second only to holding the earth on your shoulders. Practice ancient athleticism with today's Groupon to the Studio in Troy. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get four weeks of up to 12 yoga sessions (a $50 value).
- For $40, you get eight fitness classes of your choice (a $96 value).
The experienced instructors at the Studio lead fit seekers in molding muscles, burning calories, and improving their posture with sundry fitness and yoga classes. Benders and stretchers can pack 12 yoga sessions into four weeks with a combination of two styles. Yoga Basics classes emphasize proper yoga postures at a slow to moderate pace, developing strength and stamina, and the Vinyasa yoga classes guide beginner pupils and advanced guru yogis alike through a series of sun salutations, emphasizing breath work, strengthening cores, and enabling students to comb their hair with their feet.
Alternatively, opt for eight fitness classes of your choice. Set to pulse-pumping music, the Fitness Cycling class motivates students to pedal away an average of 600–900 calories with a high-intensity cardio workout, which improves respiratory endurance, increases muscle strength, and enhances paddle-boat racing times. The TRX Suspension Training class—which originates from a U.S. Navy SEALS workout program—employs suspended resistance bands to harness students' body weight for intense muscle-building exercises. Beginning runners training for a 5K race or chasing picnic-stealing bears can take the Running Mechanics class to elevate race times, reduce the risk of injury, and improve form.
