Yoga harmonizes body and spirit, as opposed to a toga, which swathes the form in breezy linen, or yogurt, which is high in protein. Brush up on your fitness-forward vocab with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 11 yoga classes at Total Body Yoga in Mundelein (a $140 value). At Total Body Yoga, a limber team of certified instructors teaches classes in a variety of rejuvenating styles and difficulty levels. The center focuses on Vinyasa flow yoga, a style that uses sequenced poses to link breathing with movement, melding body and mind like peanut butter and jelly or flowers and an apology. Seasoned pretzel-persons can opt into Kundalini classes, a more dynamic blend of postures combined with music and meditation. With a lineup of more than 200 monthly classes and a tasteful, unpretentious studio atmosphere, Total Body Yoga provides a refreshing path toward an invigorated lifestyle.

It may seem like a paradox, but yoga can provide relaxation as much as it provides exercise. With a broad slate of more than a dozen types of classes, Total Body Yoga lets you have it both ways. The curriculum ranges from gentle restorative yoga classes to higher-energy sessions that feature more challenging poses at a quicker clip. Beyond the yoga mat, the staff also leads meditation workshops and weeklong children's summer camps that encourage kids to use their creativity constructively through yoga fitness, games, music, and crafts.
