What You'll Get
Attain a new level of unlimited enlightenment with today's Groupon: for $30, you get unlimited yoga (a $90 value) at Urban Breath Yoga in Dogtown. Arriving on an empty stomach and bringing your own yoga mat is recommended, although Urban Breath will have several mats available to use in case of emergency. Your one month membership will begin with the first class you attend.
Rather than relying on awkwardly long hugs, Urban Breath instead welcomes yogis of all ages and skill levels with a variety of classes taught by knowledgeable instructors in a downward-dog-to-earth neighborhood studio. Yoga Basics lets absolute beginners take a crack at yoga for the first time and stretch the cobwebs out of their most haunted joints. From there, take the next step with Hatha yoga, which mines the deep core muscles—increasing flexibility, strength, and balance. For a more-meditative discipline that tightens the body, focuses the mind, and dispels the daily stress of being surrounded by chain-smoking coworkers at the fireworks factory, try Kundalini yoga. The Slow Flow Vinyasa class will lubricate squeaky muscle doors and top off your body-fuel tank with basic meditations, whereas the Happy Hour Yoga class uses upbeat music to energize and boost the mind with Vinyasa-style yoga that makes use of breath-synchronized, flowing poses. Classes take place several times a day, with most lasting 75 minutes. Although you can drop in at any time once you've registered, Urban Breath's WebScheduler lets you check for the latest bad-weather cancellations, teacher-rescheduling changes, and minotaur attacks.
The health benefits of yoga are well known; regular practice increases strength and flexibility while eliminating stress and uniting body and mind. Whether you want to stand taller, bend over backward, or open a pickle jar taped to your back, Urban Breath offers a suitable yoga style. Arrive early before your first class to register; you can also save a few minutes by printing and filling out the new-student form at home, then bringing it to class with your Groupon.
