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 $38, you get four weeks of unlimited yoga classes (a $128 Value) at Yo Yo Yogi.
Yo Yo Yogi's skilled instructors infuse each class with patience and passion, leading malleability-boosting sessions to accommodate first-timers and intense stretchathons for the most pliable pretzel bodies. A convenient schedule offers classes such as yoga Virgins, which acquaints fledgling limb contortionists and board-stiff beginners with basic poses, while more experienced Om seekers can join the yin-style Yogaaaaah! class, designed to gently stretch connective tissue while improving posture, range of motion, and the ability to sense ghosts. The 6:30 a.m. Morning Joe session’s flowing sequences rouse sleepwalkers, while Wednesday’s midday Siesta session is designed to gently lull overworked and overstressed bodies into a state of relaxing bliss. Starting March 15, hot yoga will be available Tuesday–Thursday and Saturday, and female yogettes can experience a sultry, dance-infused interpretation of the ancient art by enrolling in Yoga Gone Wild!.
Founders Terri and Alex visited 100 West Coast yoga studios—from Seattle to San Diego—in 100 days, blogging about it at YoYoYogiBlog.com. Inspired by their travels and the blog’s success, Terri and Alex decided to open their own studio, incorporating their favorite aspects of the yoga road trip into creative classes that feature poses such as the gas pumper and tire changer.
