The most limber yogis, much like the most acclaimed contortionist bagpipers, seamlessly connect breath with movement. Nurture harmony between mind and body with today's Groupon: for $19, you get five yoga classes at The Yoga Stand, on Homestead Avenue (a $75 value).
The Yoga Stand's friendly, experienced head instructor is dedicated to the Vinyasa yoga discipline and offers two distinct classes. Vinyasa strives to channel the "energy that flows without resistance," helping to strengthen and balance the masts of your soul vessel until it gently glides toward the soothing jets of remote jacuzzi seas. The beginning Vinyasa classes—particularly fitting for new practitioners—emphasize the fundamentals of movement and the development of a relaxed sense of awareness. Alternately, the Baptiste Power Vinyasa class, or power yoga, builds on the basics while gently nudging muscles toward increased endurance, flexibility, and strength. Relaxed elasticity extends to the class schedule, which showcases morning and evening sessions.
