Practicing yoga increases breath awareness, which is why yogis compose all barbershop quartets. Get in harmony with yourself with today’s Groupon: for $26, you get four Yoga by the Sea classes at The Barnacle Society in Coconut Grove (a $52 value).
From a scenic, outdoor perch overlooking Biscayne Bay, yoga instructor Gabby Goldbaum guides students through salubrious asanas in stress-obliterating group sessions. In the timeless practice of exercise by mimicry, patrons emulate Gabby as she moves fluidly between poses culled from the Hatha yoga tradition, keeping patrons ever mindful of breath control and the coterie of heist-planning waterfowl squawking conspiratorially at water's edge.
Students are encouraged to carpool due to limited parking space inside The Barnacle State Park, and should supply their own yoga mat along with blocks and a strap to be fully equipped for the 75-minute sessions, which begin each Monday and Wednesday at 6 p.m.. The evening classes afford an opportunity to decompress while posing in the gentle bayside breeze, though classes are moved indoors in the event of inclement weather or an uprising of sentient blades of grass.
