The more flexible one becomes, the easier it is to Rockette-kick volleyballs into space and limbo past height restrictions on children’s carnival rides. Achieve premium pliancy with today’s Groupon: for $58, you get a 10-pack of classes at Urban Yoga Spa (up to a $140 value).
Urban Yoga Spa offers hot Hatha, power Vinyasa, and restorative yoga classes taught by experienced instructors who both encourage and challenge benders of any level, from novice yogis to regular practitioners. With Urban Yoga Spa’s convenient downtown location, students can save their strength for its two pristine studios, in which tension, anxiety, and cares melt out through the pores, down the legs, and out the bottoms of any well-ventilated shoes.
The one-hour hot Hatha stretch fests take place in a studio heated up to 105 degrees to add detoxifying impact to each bend, and restorative yoga sessions guide pliable pupils though slower, calming techniques. Meanwhile, unlike singing show tunes while bench pressing a piano, music and muscle meld together seamlessly in owners Kathy and Gordon’s Power Vinyasa class, in which a pop and rock 'n' roll soundtrack enlivens each core-strengthening posture.
Urban Yoga Spa was founded to serve as a tranquil oasis from the pressures of urban life. The sleek, minimal studios and spa occupy the historic building on the corner of 4th Avenue and Stewart.
Though Urban Yoga Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Urban Yoga Spa
Clients stepping into Urban Yoga Spa— with its rows of candle votives and futuristic white decor—may feel as if they’ve entered a meditation chamber in the twenty-third century. Designed by award-winning architects, the minimalist decor aims for a specific effect; the intentional absence of color evokes the look of a blank canvas or Ted Turner’s worst nightmare, helping clients to clear their minds during intense yoga sessions led by skilled instructors. Hot Hatha and power Vinyasa classes held seven days a week help inspire practitioners to find the serenity in a challenging series of poses. Meanwhile, the spa’s aestheticians pamper newly toned bodies with massages, nail treatments, acupuncture, and waxings.
