In its constant attempt to stay fit, humanity has given in to such unfortunate workout trends as livestock lifting, Spazzercise, and mixed-martial charades. Embrace body and mind fitness that has withstood the test of time with today's Groupon: for $35, you get eight classes at Uttara Yoga Studio (a $70 value), located downtown.
Uttara Yoga Studio stretches the minds and muscle bundles of limb limberers in a non-competitive, family-friendly environment. Experienced yoga instructors shepherd students of all ages and yogic abilities through a variety of classes, including Ashtanga yoga, which hones strength and body awareness with a serious of standing and seating postures, and Hatha yoga, which bends, backbends, and bends backbends to increase flexibility and focus. Flowing-pose enthusiasts can practice their downward-facing dogs or temperamental jazz pianists with a power-yoga class, while tense tissues can unwind with a Yin-yoga session. Check the schedule for class times and dates.
- The Uttara Yoga Studio stands inconspicuously on Kirk Avenue. But, open the door at 112-B, follow the steep stairs upstairs and discover a peaceful oasis with high ceilings, wood floors and expansive windows letting in light. – Jessica Marcy, Roanoke Times
