Yoga challenges the mind and body without the violence and hurt feelings of full-contact chess. Steer clear of overaggressive pawns with today's Groupon: for $48, you get six classes at The Yoga Within in Groton (a $108 value).
At The Yoga Within, compassionate studio owners and certified yoga instructors Theresa Reynolds and Karen Oien help students of all experience levels deepen their yoga practice with a four-day schedule of gentle yoga classes. Each 90-minute session takes mat mavens though 50–60 minutes' worth of healing physical postures designed to release tension along the spine. During this time, students get support from blocks and folded-up blankets. The remaining class time is spent fostering peaceful minds and taming skittish spirit horses with a short breathing practice and a period resting in yoga's relaxation pose—shavasana.
Though The Yoga Within sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
