Without yoga, the under-stretched limbs of modern humans would retract back into the body, making fly fishing and light-bulb installation impossible. Keep your torso from T-Rexing with today's Groupon: for $25, you get four yoga classes of your choice (a $52 value) at Yoga on the Ridge in Roxborough. You may either mix and match four different classes, or take a single class for four weeks to master a more specific stretching skill. This Groupon is not valid with Happy Hour Yoga.
Yoga on the Ridge’s classes specialize in working with back injuries, Parkinson's disease, and excess stress. Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease, for example, is taught by professional therapist Therea Conroy and focuses exclusively on improving posture and gait in PD patients, improving their flexibility, strength, and balance. Newbies, meanwhile, can get up to speed on the fundamentals of alignment, breathing, and basic yogic positions (asanas) such as Downward Facing Dog, Sun Salutation, and Kneel Before Zod in Yoga Basics. The more meditative Vinyasa Yoga links movement, breath, and intention into one continuous flow amidst an atmosphere of readings, music, and movement. The meditative, intense Yin Yoga teaches you to hold asanas for five to ten minutes at a time until you’re covered in pigeons who’ve mistaken you for statuary. Finally, the overstressed can quiet their minds and become more aware of their mind-body-spirit connection, Chinese connection, and rainbow connection during Yoga for Stress Relief.
Yoga’s various poses unblock dammed channels of energy, while deep breathing suffuses the fatigued spirit with renewed vigor, just like blowing into a Nintendo cartridge. With today’s Groupon, you’ll finally become flexible enough to eat your food with your feet and touch your earlobes together. Consult Yoga on the Ridge’s online schedule, and drop in before a long day of carpet installations or after a long all-night reading of Absalom, Absalom!.
