Yoga is the root word for the greeting “yo,” which is what ancient practitioners shouted at the sky during sun salutations. Say hello to sun with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get one month of unlimited hot yoga at Yoga Oasis (a $150 value). This Groupon is valid at the Woodbury location.
The seasoned staff at Yoga Oasis shepherds earthly edifices through a diverse tapestry of movements within 105-degree studios infused with air-purifying ions to foster greater limb pliability, relaxation, and detoxification. Suitable for all skill and experience levels, the 90-minute hot yoga class takes body benders through a journey of 30 poses tailored to safely stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the heated environ, as well as to boost flexibility and cultivate a balance between mind and protoplasm. Alternately, hot Vinyasa caters to more advanced sinews with its cadenced flow of poses and inversions that include headstands and shoulder stands. West and East studio schedules both sport sizzling classes throughout the week, so patrons can choose which session meshes best with their busy work, family, and milk-cap collecting schedules. Students must bring a yoga mat (or rent one for $2), a large beach towel, and a water bottle with them to class, and they should, like a go-go dancer in a 1980s hair-metal music video, dress to sweat.
Yoga Oasis airy spaces boast mirror-lined walls and natural lighting, lending the studios an atmosphere of serenity perfect for limbering up limbs or secretly trying to master the art of levitation. After class, the studios invite students to squeegee or rinse off their expunged toxins and discharged sweat in changing rooms equipped with showers and stocked with towels. Yoga mats, water, and bend-lending frocks are also available for purchase.
During the heated sessions at Yoga Oasis, the instructors lead all levels, all ages, and all body types in an intense cardiovascular workout to cleanse the body of toxins. Classes are based on vinyasa, ashtanga, and core working poses.
