Yoga challenges the mind and body without the violence and hurt feelings of full-contact chess. Steer clear of overaggressive pawns with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one month of unlimited classes at Yoga at Tiffany's (a $95 value).
Certified yoga instructor Tiffany Porte taps her years of training to help students learn and master athletic yoga flow sequences to achieve limber limbs and centered spirits. Her seven-day schedule features all-levels classes that accommodate beginners and veteran cobras alike. Pupils begin sessions by entering a cheery aqua-hued reception area before making their way into the softly lit practice space. Tiffany cranks the temperature up to between 80 and 98 degrees for stretch sessions, encouraging students’ bodies to sweat for detoxification and muscle-melting benefits. During hot Vinyasa flows, Tiffany walks students through an aerobic sequence of poses, linking each to the next with balance-challenging movements and mindful breathing exercises to build strength and concentration. Students looking for problem-area-targeted workouts can attend abdominals-centric classes, which feature a barrage of core-focused strength exercises that prepare students’ cores for cannonball belly blows.

Within one of two Yoga at Tiffany’s chic and cozy studios, lit by hue lighting systems, yoga students stretch from the specialty flooring or the glossy wood floors through the heated air that swirls around them from the hot fresh-air system with steam humidification. The classes include heated and nonheated varieties in a range of difficulties, such as Warm Gentle Flow, Strength and Alignment, Hot 26 Postures, and Prana Sculpt (yoga with weights).
