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 $25, you get one month of unlimited yoga at Yoga & Healing Center, located in Scotch Plains (a $130 value).
Yoga & Healing Center offers a variety of classes suited for seasoned contortionists and stiff yogamateurs alike and taught by spirited instructors who boast years of experience in energy-releasing elastitude. Beginners can start with basic fundamental classes or dive headfirst into the damp, purifying world of Bikram or the releasing Soul Sweat class, which packs the wallop of a disco while emphasizing freedom and ease of movement. Gentle Flow yoga is infused with the spiritual laws of Deepak Chopra, cleansing both the body and mind, and silent meditation is open for all students seeking to silence the world’s screams for a while. Students should plan to bring their own mats, towels, and water, though mats are also available to rent. It is best to avoid eating before classes, lest vituperative vittles rebel with belly-based trampoline sessions. Though walk-in classes are available, students are advised to reserve their spaces online.
