What You'll Get
Before the invention of yoga, people cleared their minds by staring deeply into a mirror until their brains reset. Find a more peaceful reboot with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited classes at YogaFresh (up to a $139 value) in Woodbury. New clients receive an additional week of classes for free.
YogaFresh sports a stretchy abundance of diverse classes for practitioners of all skill levels, taught by a highly qualified staff of caring yogis. Newcomers may begin with Hatha Fusion for all levels, a blend of yoga postures, breathing techniques, and visualization and practiced in an 80-degree room to loosen joints and defrost inner awareness. Adept benders and athletic minotaurs may opt for the intermediate YogilatesFresh class, a hybridization of yoga and Pilates that promotes flexibility and core strength. The more advanced Power FreshFlow class challenges taffy-like students with vigorous sequences in a room heated to a sweat-soliciting 90-95 degrees. Previous yoga experience, along with a solid foundation of sun salutations, basic postures, and having your spine replaced with a Slinky, is recommended for this class. Consult YogaFresh’s weekly schedule for class times, which often run as early as 6 a.m. to as late as 9:15 p.m.

Refreshment is the ultimate goal at YogaFresh, a community-focused, earth-toned studio, which won Woodbury magazine’s Best Yoga Class award in 2011.
This serene backdrop gives way to the intense, heated poses and breathing exercises of the studio’s dance-like Vinyasa classes, which build the delicate balance of strength and grace required to bench-press a killer whale. Several other classes such as Yin Yoga, Warrior Sculpt, and more, unfold in a studio heated to a sweat-inducing 99 degrees—all the better for loosening tight muscles and quarters lodged behind the ears. Ballet and Pilates inform Barre Burn sessions, which combine yoga poses, isometric exercises, and weightlifting to sculpt the limbs and core.
Yoga Alliance–certified instructors lead each class, emphasizing form and safety as students stretch and align their bodies. After class, peruse the studio’s boutique, which teems with workout-friendly apparel and eco-friendly yoga mats from brands such as Alo, Manduka, Beyond Yoga, Karma Wear, Vimmia, Rese, Manduka, Yogitoes, and YogaFresh Brand.
