From Napoleon's great crab walk through Europe to J. Robert Oppenheimer's discovery of nuclear fission by kissing his own elbow, victory has always gone to the most flexible. Overpower enemies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 20 yoga classes (up to a $300 value) at The Yoga Tree in downtown Haverhill.
Specializing in vinyasa-style yoga, The Yoga Tree helps students of all experience levels to stretch, bend, and twist their way to fitness. The friendly staff gathers small bands of budding contortionists inside a cozy studio to lead them through a challenging flow of poses, assisting with modifications when needed while motivating each student to push their boundaries with the promise of a gold star and lollipop. For fitness fanatics looking to tone muscles and shed weight, some of the scheduled classes explore the more physically demanding aspects of vinyasa yoga, while those seeking a deeper connection to their body, mind, and spirit animal might opt for a more mellow class. The Yoga Tree also boasts uncommon sessions such as their candlelight-flow class, which features live music once a month and focuses on breath work to help students get in tune with their natural rhythms and outshine grandma with smooth moves at her senior prom.
The Yoga Tree
Housed in a studio overlooking the sparkling waters of the Merrimack River, The Yoga Tree invites students to gain a clearer, more empowering perspective through the practice of yoga. The instructors mainly lead vinyasa classes, teaching attendees to use mindful breaths as they transition between asanas and proceed through gracefully flowing sequences. But although the vinyasa style emphasizes a more dynamic workout in general, the staff members do their best to welcome and accommodate all guests, regardless of their skill or fitness level. The schedule also includes slower paced sessions focusing on gentle sequences of deep, sustained stretches intended to strengthen mind-body connections. Regardless of each class's particular focus, every teacher at The Yoga Tree strives to create a non-competitive environment where individuals can find encouraging support as they further their personal practice.
