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 $45, you get a one-month unlimited yoga membership at Yoga People (a $129 value), a community-centered yoga studio in Brooklyn Heights.
Yoga People's experienced instructors teach a variety of disciplines of the ancient art. Classes for all skill levels are available, including the basic foundations of yoga, the prop-utilizing gentle restorative techniques of Iyengar yoga, which focuses on posture and therapeutic benefits, and the intermediate-level Ashtanga form, which follows the primary series of yoga postures to develop strength, flexibility, and an appreciation for street-performing contortionists. More-experienced students with at least six months of consistent practice can enroll in Vinyasa yoga, which melds breathing exercises with challenging postures, forming an inseparable bond reminiscent of a grilled-cheese sandwich. Vinyasa-style core yoga is another intermediate-level course that generates a full-body workout through powerful postures and strength-based sequences. Check out the class page for information on scheduling and specifics.
Yoga People's community-oriented studio is devoted to providing students with the resources, facilities, and expert guidance necessary for pursuing the philosophies of yoga. Visit the tranquil, soothing setting of the studio to experience the learning atmosphere firsthand, or think really hard to telepathically connect to an instructor who will mentally share the many benefits of introspective exercise.

- Great teachers and a wonderful environment. I have been coming to classes for a year and would not dream of going anywhere else. The price of classes is comparable to other studios in the area but here you get individual attention, unlike many other larger studios. – cm2472, Insider Pages

About Yoga People
Having spent much of her life as a stay-at-home mom, Wendy Chanelis turned to yoga as a way to tone her muscles and awaken her mind. She quickly fell in the love with exercise form and, after studying with many different masters of many different styles such as Iyengar and Jivamukti, eventually decided it was time to open her own studio. She founded Yoga People in 1998 as a welcoming haven for like-minded yogis and curious beginners alike.
Wendy—along with a staff of 15 certified teachers—now conducts a variety of yoga classes throughout each week. Some sessions cater to the beginner, others to pregnant mothers, and still more to meditative practitioners. Beyond yoga, massage therapists employ modalities such as shiatsu, craniosacral, and prenatal massage, which helps babies appreciate backrubs before they're even born.
