What You'll Get
A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighbourhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $30, you get a five-class pass to True Yoga on 101 Street (up to a $63 value, including GST). This Groupon is not valid for Mysore classes.
As one of the only dedicated Ashtanga studios in the city, True Yoga cultivates pliant frames and nimble minds with an enlightening class roster. Bare-footed visitors can enlist the sophisticated limb choreography of renowned gurus to guide them through traditional yoga instruction or to teach them how to limbo under parked cars. During an Ashtanga Methods and Techniques tutorial, pupils carefully engage their muscle clusters with breathing techniques, headstands, and drop-backs in order to flourish basic yoga principals while alleviating physical injuries and spiritual inhibitions. Dexterous trainers also induce caloric fires with Vinyasa Flow sessions, which employ modified Ashtanga poses to increase strength and flexibility. Or, solicit a restorative workout such as Yin Yoga to flourish hip-opening poses for success in competitive leap-frog leagues.
True Yoga summons sweat glands in the quarters of a former Chinese temple and reinforces its organic atmosphere with eco-friendly, scent-free fitness rooms. The centre also lavishes students with complimentary yoga mats and morning babysitting service for an additional fee so guests can perform fluid downward dogs without the strain of diapered ankle weights. Prenatal yoga and classes for children round out the service menu, furnishing healthy family field trips.

About True Yoga
True Yoga, housed within a former Chinese temple, welcomes students to practice Ashtanga yoga in a serene environment. The studio's instructors specialize in the restorative postures of traditional Ashtanga yoga but also lead classes such as prenatal yoga, mother-and-baby yoga, baby massage, and birthing workshops.
