Inner peace is like the Sasquatch—many people claim it's real, but most remain skeptical until the moment it seizes them while they're meditating on a mountaintop. Bring the bliss with today's Groupon: for $39, you get 10 classes at Yoga Now. This deal is valid at the studio's north-side and Gold Coast locations.
Yoga Now enables gracious guests to settle in, unwind, and explore inner peace in their tranquil studio. Over the course of 10 classes, once-static bodies learn limbering maneuvers well-suited for achieving mental clarity or sliding wordlessly into a malfunctioning car's exhaust pipe. A panoply of teachers, class types, and sessions accommodate any fresh-faced frame-flexer's time commitment or level of experience. Students can start a day off with 90 minutes of healing, breath-intensive Mysore yoga, practice multiple levels of graceful Vinyasa flows, challenge their inner strength and outer plasticity with a Forrest session, and then fold themselves into a Tupperware container for overnight storage.
Amy Beth Treciokas was introduced to yoga in a rather unlikely place—her high-school gym class. The study of Buddhist writings in her English class nourished her love for the culture, and by 1993 she was taking proper classes with an instructor from the Temple of Kriya Yoga. Ten years later, after many trips to India to study and become certified in Ashtanga yoga, Amy opened Yoga Now. There, she trains aspiring teachers and leads students in an extensive mix of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, prenatal, and forrest classes. She's supported by the floors of the studio and a large family of instructors, many of who have traveled the world to further their practice. Students can make themselves home at Yoga Now before or after class, by making use of the studio's sauna and steam room, or booking a massage in one of the two treatment rooms.
