After crocodators, poor fitness is the number-one cause of the night-scaries. With today's Groupon, turn the nightmare where you end up bare-bellied in biology class into a dream of goddess-like energy and strong, snake-charming abs: for $29, you get one month of unlimited Lotus Moves classes (a $96 value) at Yoga Rasa on Mercury Drive.
Yoga Rasa is dedicated to providing a wide variety of yoga and dance education to empower students with health and knowledge. The committed teachers come from various practice backgrounds, though all are highly experienced and as devoted to the yoga lifestyle as cereal leprechauns are devoted to keeping their charms of fortune away from grubby child paws. Yoga Rosa’s Lotus Moves series offers an empowering array of body-bending, calorie-shedding classes for exercisers of all ability. Igniting feminine fuses, this series of exotic exercises is designed to unleash the inner wiles of fitness usually constrained by the daily stressors that keep legs from tapping, rumps from shaking, and fingers from air soloing.
Setting the tenets of fitness ablaze, Lotus Moves shakes loose inner sassiness with a packed schedule of nearly 20 classes a week. Pole fun-damentals enhances upper body and core strength through flexibility training, stretching, and basic pole maneuvers that cover spinning and dancing. A Nia Moves class blends dance and martial arts, putting forms through nine distinct movement forms to unite body and soul into a harmonious human co-op. Flirty footwork transforms straight-backed stools into drooling baracaloungers during Irresistible Chair classes, and Zumba Crave and belly dancing transport mental and physical flexibility to the cardiovascular nexus of pleasure.
Whether you believe touching your toes to be a theoretic impossibility or you’re as flexible as Gumby on an Amazonian adventure, you’ll find an opportunity to learn and grow within Yoga Rasa’s studio walls.

A registered school of the Yoga Alliance, Yoga Rasa takes its name from the Indian word rasa, a term whose meaning encompasses both the experiential "taste or essence of any impression" and the spiritual "nectar of life." With this at the heart of their practice, the teachers of Yoga Rasa strive to nurture clients three dimensionally through services that heal the body, mind, and soul. To do so, they oversee a facility that spans three fitness studios, a massage and spa space, a chiropractor's office, a salon, and a boutique. Each of these spaces aids guests in their exploration of yoga as well as ayurvedic healing, creating a community that encourages lifelong yogic practices.
