What You'll Get
Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a grendel. Bend and stretch sans monsters with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for five yoga classes (an $85 value)
- $22 for a 30-minute Hellerwork session with an initial consultation (a $45 value)
The class schedule includes Kundalini yoga sessions throughout the week, with both early-morning and late-evening times available. Some classes are specifically tailored to the needs of athletes and women, but the standard yoga and meditation sessions welcome all students regardless of skill level.
Hellerwork treatments adopt a three-pronged holistic approach to bolstering health. The session begins as the therapist applies deep, kneading pressure to the soft tissues, easing tense muscles and improving the body's alignment with gravity. To help clients develop new movement habits and better maintain this alignment, the therapist offers movement reeducation tips to teach visitors to use their bodies naturally and more efficiently. Treatments end with a brief dialogue addressing the emotional and psychological impacts of the session, along with how pent-up emotions contribute to physical stress and tension.

About YC Yoga for Life Center
The human body is a resilient network of organ systems and personal energy that, when treated well, can often heal itself. Yvette Cobb firmly believes in this mantra. She founded YC Yoga for Life Center as an extension of this belief; she combines her professional training as a nurse practitioner and her passion for yoga for a well-rounded approach to health. Befitting Yvette's background, the studio draws inspiration from conventional as well as holistic therapies, aiming to restore the balance that allows clients to lead happier lives.
The yoga instructors adhere to Kundalini-inspired classes, which strengthen mind-body connections by blending sequences of controlled, graceful movements with mindful meditation. Hellerwork therapists similarly address the mind and body during the same treatment, relaxing stress-laden muscles with bodywork techniques before identifying the underlying emotional sources of residual tension. The center's detoxification programs and nutritional guidance also improve clients' holistic balance without relying on prescription medications.
