A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $19, you get five yoga classes at The Studio DC (an $80 value). Reservations are required.
The certified teachers at The Studio DC guide students through energizing Vinyasa-flow classes designed to help yogis of all skill sets expand their mind-body practice. The packed schedule contains heated sessions (86–88 degrees) that help to add extra inches to stretches as well as more mild classes (78–82 degrees) that still get sweat glands pumping. Geared toward beginners, the Level 1 Alignment Flow class teaches students the fundamentals of Vinyasa yoga so that they can learn to glide from one pose to the next like well-oiled voguing robots. Body-benders with more practice can salute the sun in an intermediate Vinyasa class, and experienced flexperts can put their strength and endurance to the test with arm balances, backbends, inversions, and circular fire breathing in Power Flow 2.
