Unlike hourglasses, yoga students can stand on their heads for longer than 30 seconds before they lose track of time. Test your mental stopwatch with today's Groupon: for $45, you get 15 drop-in classes at The Yoga Suite - Center for Yoga Studies in Hamtramck (up to a $240 value).
Studio director Michele Pearson taps more than 12 years of yoga experience to lead mindful Iyengar-style classes, emphasizing precise alignment and helping students bolster stamina, flexibility, and balance. The studio's flexible schedule accommodates students of all skill levels, boasting a variety of 60- to 90-minute classes throughout the week. During sessions, instructors draw from Iyengar yoga's repertoire of 14 breathing exercises and 200 sculpture-worthy poses, helping students hit the meticulously aligned stretches with demonstration, verbal cues, and hands-on adjustments. During Level 1 sessions, Michele teaches attendees how to mold their limbs into the fundamental poses, and the Level 2 and 3 classes begin to challenge pupils by introducing sustained inversions. Aiding students with their first handstands and headstands, the practice space's rope wall allows guests to safely practice inversions without having to turn off the room's gravity.
Although The Yoga Suite - Center for Yoga Studies offers discounted rates for students and seniors, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
