Heated yoga sessions became popular after a study concluded that high heat was the main reason grandpas normally emerge from gym saunas feeling relaxed, limber, and totally nude. Experience the benefits of warmth without wishing for a blindfold with today's deal: for $50, new students get a 10-class punch pass (up to a $110 value) valid at any of Yoga Flow’s four area locations in Murrysville, Aspinwall, Shadyside, and South Hills (the South Hills location is scheduled to open later this fall).
Yoga Flow affords limber folks of all skill levels the chance to tone their core, deepen their breathing, and develop mind-body harmony through heated Vinyasa flow. Vinyasa, basically meaning “synchronizing active movement with breath,” emphasizes smooth, fluid transitions throughout each warm, thermostat-spinning session. Yoga Flow offers three levels of classes: beginner, all levels (open to beginners and intermediate yogis), and power, a more demanding, faster-flowing class with minimal verbal interruption and maximum muscular maneuvering and bicep kissing. All classes operate under the patient, powerful minds of Yoga Flow's enthusiastic instructors, who boast years of experience under their snug-fitting belts.
To redeem today's Groupon, simply walk into any of the four locations, pick up a 10-class punch card, and let the limbering begin. With classes scheduled daily throughout the morning, afternoon, and evening hours across all locations, Yoga Flow can fit into nearly any schedule, even schedules that revolve around watching The Weather Channel's highly anticipated, round-the-clock blockbuster, Fall.
New students only. Punch cards must be fully redeemed before April 4, 2011.
Dominique Ponko sits at the head of the class, leading yogis through muscle-lengthening postures with the steady flow of her deep, rhythmic inhales and exhales. It’s been a long journey for Dominique. She first sought out yoga at the age of 26 to help her cope with life-threatening seizures and a slow-growing brain tumor. Yoga comforted her through three difficult years, welcoming her into a space for healing spiritually before she was able to find the proper medicine to help her heal physically. Though still a little shaky, Dominique has triumphed and opened four yoga studios—voted Best of the ‘Burgh in 2010—to inspire her students to ease their ailments, build strength, and find inner peace.
During her studio's heated Vinyasa-flow classes, an enthusiastic and supportive instructor guides students through a series of strengthening postures that work to increase flexibility and build muscles. Warm, balmy air courses through the studio, pricking beads of sweat on brows to help detox bodies and loosen stiff muscles into deep, soothing stretches.
