Yoga is a much easier way to exercise both mind and body than testing Einstein's theory of relativity by racing a beam of light. Avoid a science-related sprain with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 30 days of unlimited yoga at Utkatasana Yoga (an $80 value).
Utkatasana Yoga's practiced yogis lead pupils of all skill levels in melding mind, body, and spirit in the style of hot Vinyasa power yoga. Sweat out toxins and stretch tendons in a room heated to between 80 and 90 degrees as Asana poses improve posture, stamina, and circulation. Weaving deep breathing with synchronized movements, stress and cerebral cloudiness melt away in a flow that, unlike Chinese checkers, is customizable to all abilities. Free parking and mat rental are available, and Utkatsana Yoga suggests bringing a towel and a bottle of water, as well as arriving 10 minutes before class. Classes take place seven days a week, and, depending on the day, are offered in the morning, evening, and the distant future. No contracts or initiation fees are required.
Inside a practice space heated between 80 and 90 degrees, yogis Michele and Sean guide students of all ages and experience levels through the reinvigorating poses of Vinyasa power yoga. During up to two classes per day, the instructors help pupils master the style's breathing techniques and synchronized postures, which transition seamlessly into one another, much like a month of video-game playing leads to a Cheetos addiction. The heated room coaxes muscles into sinking into deeper stretches for increased flexibility and detoxifies bodies via sweat. A stock of free rental mats cushions guests throughout the session, and a free introductory course for new students allows novices to sample the Vinyasa style every Thursday night.
