The more flexible one becomes, the easier it is to Rockette-kick volleyballs into space and limbo past height restrictions on children’s carnival rides. Achieve premium pliancy with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get five classes of your choice at The Yoga Boutique (a $70 value) in Lakeview.
The Yoga Boutique's relaxing studio allows passionate instructors to preach a message of overall well being in yoga, Pilates, and other fitness classes. Beginner yoga figuratively holds students hands as they learn basic poses, stretching, and strengthening techniques, Vinyasa yoga strings together poses to encourage body purification, and Yogalates mashes together the low-impact, results-focused movements of Pilates and the mindful poses of yoga. Small classes, which ensure individual attention and that everyone can fit in a minivan if a situation arises in which everyone needs to fit in a minivan, are offered throughout the day seven days a week. Check the schedule for a full list. This deal is good for all classes, including the Cardio Bar and Core Connection.
- The quaint studio, with warm wood floors and pale green walls, exudes the positive energy you expect from a yoga room. Robert, along with about seven other instructors, teaches classes in yoga (mainly hatha, prenatal and vinyasa), pilates, children's ballet and easy chair fitness (a class for seniors who suffer from severe ailments or are extremely out of shape). – Christy Bonstell, Centerstage Chicago
- Somehow TYB creates a space where everyone is chatty and friendly! I have been to all kinds of classes here and every time I leave feeling refreshed and sore. – Bree L., Yelp, 2/26/10
The Yoga Boutique
Yoga and fitness gurus guide students of all skill levels toward slimmer silhouettes in a noncompetitive atmosphere. The spacious studio’s sage-green walls, hardwood floors, and natural lighting provide a backdrop for yoga classes such as Hatha Flow Yoga and Forrest Yoga, which gently twist torsos and stretch limbs through slow-moving poses.
Kids' yoga classes, such as Preschool Pranayama and Toddler Tadasana, encourage children to find peace and stillness while engaging them through games and partner work. During Pilates classes, students build firmer cores, tighten muscles, and enable tendons to produce melodious twangs by propelling their bodies through a series of isometric motions. Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing to all classes.
