What You'll Get
Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a grendel. Bend and stretch bloodlessly with today's deal: for $20, you get five drop-in yoga classes (a $55 value) at Yoga Home of Therapeutics.
Whether you want to stand taller, bend over backwards, or open a pickle jar taped to your back, Yoga Home of Therapeutics offers a suitable yoga style. Many classes require little or no Yoga knowledge. Beginners more brittle than peppermint bark can learn to stretch in a 45-minute guided meditation session, a fusion class that combines Pilates and therapeutic and restorative yoga poses, or a yoga wall class, which makes use of ropes to guide the body. To inaugurate a day of Nessie-hunting, take Yoga on the Lake, a silent stroll to Lake Hefner that combines Asana poses, Savasana poses, and a 10-minute meditation.
Yoga Home of Therapeutics also offers special-focus yoga, meant to boost the immune systems of people who have arthritis, Parkinson's disease, MS, fibromyalgia, and other conditions. The owner and instructor, Sara Alavi, suffered from MS and had lost sight in her left eye before she discovered yoga's healing properties and regained her vision and her health. Her belief in yoga's healing powers imbues Yoga Home of Therapeutics' classes with compassion that rumbles through the sleek hardwood floors and up the key-lime-pie-colored walls in search of pain to put out of commission, like a ladybug eating aphids.

About Yoga Home of Therapeutics
One could say that 1996 was one of the worst years of Sara Alavi’s life. Within the span of months, she lost sight in her left eye, was diagnosed with MS, and developed a heart condition. Any one of those conditions could have debilitated her spirit, but Sara always lived by the mantra of “gratitude toward the gift of life and being grateful for our loved ones' lives.” That devotion to celebrating life led her toward the mind-calming and body-strengthening practice of yoga. After continued dedication to the ancient art, her eyesight returned and her health began to skyrocket.
Now a certified yoga instructor herself, Sara uses her earth-toned studio to host the bodies and minds of her students. Her yoga classes aim to improve bodily health by increasing blood flow and releasing muscle tension while stimulating the mind for sharper concentration and funnier Mad Libs. In the studio’s flower-curtain-lined healing room, Sara performs the raindrop massage: a combination of essential oils and reflexive therapy. She balances disrupted energy flows with reiki healing and assists at-home meditation with a guided relaxation CD.
