People holding yoga poses typically seek self-discipline and control, whereas those holding yoga posters just want Sting's autograph. Find peace while standing still with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited yoga and a 60-minute massage at The Studio (a $99 value).
The Studio proffers a procession of yoga classes within a serene space and soothes sore musculature with myriad massage techniques. Use a month of unlimited classes to hop from beginner yoga to hot flow to dynamic Vinyasa, playing Twister on the schedule of 19 different classes spread over every day of the week. Two spacious yoga parlors, dappled with hardwood floors and natural light streaming through panoramic windows, act as the venue for a concert of physical strengthening and spiritual fine-tuning.
In addition to the yoga classes, a one-hour rub down in one of six distinct styles helps each guest reclaim inner peace or the ability to accurately portray jellyfish during games of charades. Choose Thai yoga therapy’s stretching and pressing methods to increase flexibility and focus bodily energy, morph turbulence into tranquility with the relaxation massage, or give rebellious under-muscles a firm talking-to with deep-tissue techniques. For moments of pure post-yoga bliss, sip healthy libations from the Studio's on-site tea and juice bar (costs not included with today's deal) and boogie-board on the free WiFi.
For students of The Studio, flying is not only possible—it's therapeutic. Instructors in beginners’ acro-yoga classes lead guests through the basics of gravity-defying poses and partner work, helping them balance upside down and infuse their yoga practice with trust and playfulness. During these and all classes at The Studio, the emphasis is on acceptance. The staff maintains a judgment-free atmosphere, where burgeoning yogis can feel comfortable attempting new postures without making everyone nearby crawl headfirst into a sleeping bag. The two classrooms—one heated for intense Vinyasa sequences and one kept at a standard temperature—are as calming and open as the minds within them, bordered by walls of large, panoramic windows. Under the supervision of certified teachers, most of whom have undergone hundreds of hours of yoga training, pupils hone their sense of body and breath awareness.
This welcoming ambiance helped The Studio earn the award for Best Yoga Classes in the Reno News & Review for the past 5 years. However, the center is not solely focused on classes and views them instead as one component of a total-wellness regimen. Backing up the sessions, massage therapists untangle muscular knots in two private rooms with Thai stretching techniques or other classic modalities. In the lounge, plush floor cushions support patrons as they sip complimentary tea and peel clementines. Owner Rachelle often stands behind the raw-food and juice bar, prepping wholesome meals for lunch and keeping fruit from getting too full of itself.
