Yoga is just as effective at combating modern stresses such as ISP failure and fear of traffic cones as it was at relieving ancient stresses like leprosy and being eaten by tigers. Alleviate your own brand of designer troubles with today's Groupon. For $45, new clients get an unlimited month of classes ($110) at Avondale Riverside's Yoga Ananda, plus one Swedish ($65) or deep-tissue massage ($75), up to a $185 total value.
Before a month of yoga trains your muscles to massage themselves while at rest, you can use a massage to get your mind and body in the right frame of relaxed existence. Depending on your choice of a one-hour Swedish or one-hour deep-tissue massage, one of Ananda’s certified massage therapists will knead, rub, smooth, and stimulate your muscles with varying levels of pressure and intensity, preparing both your spiritual and corporeal forms for a triumphant warrior pose during class.
Classes at Yoga Ananda include disciplines such as hatha, which is made up of the fundamentals of Indian yoga; gentle hatha, which is good for meditation and healing; and vinyasa, which builds on hatha using posture sequences. Yoga Ananda also offers more dynamic, intense yoga techniques, like kundalini, the yoga of awareness, and ashtanga, the eight-limbed path, which involves synchronized breathing and flowing pose sequences. The unlimited month's membership ensures that you can experience everything Yoga Ananda has to offer, discovering which of the paths suits you best. See Yoga Ananda's class schedule here for individual class times.
The Yoga Ananda studio offers rooms large enough to comfortably accommodate yoga practitioners and small enough to preserve a community atmosphere. Ceiling hangings, earth-toned walls, large mirrors, and hardwood floors keep the atmosphere vibrant and calming, allowing students to focus on their inner selves. Each class is open to practitioners of all experience levels, so get your Groupon and pose your way to tranquility.
