Mankind has long tried to harmonize mind and body, although this has been hampered by the mind's inability to sing or play an instrument. Get your brain in tune with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one month of unlimited classes at Yoga Center of Los Gatos (a $150 value).
Founded by Jan Hutchins and guided by his 38 years of yoga experience, Yoga Center of Los Gatos relaxes away stress and anxiety with its holistic wellness practices. Hosting classes from early morning to late at night, Yoga Center's schedule proves nearly as flexible as its experienced and welcoming yogis. Beginners can start with the Basic & Beyond class, which moves at a slow pace to enable careful pose perfection, and established spiritual sportspeople can opt for power Vinyasa sessions, which combine intense strength, stamina, and moderate levitation with focus and centering practice for the mind. For a less exercise-centered practice, transformational yoga and restorative yoga employ meditative scrub brushes to scour away the day's tensions. To ensure healthy yogic practices, instructors must first approve students before they can register for advanced classes or shuffle a pack of cards with their feet.
The Yoga Center has room for more than just flexibility-enhancing mind-body unification. The Shamanic Journey seminar employs native drumming to guide seekers through a spiritual safari, and the Qigong/Taiji class utilizes breathing and movement to crack even the toughest Rubik's cube.
