Yoga, like sword ownership and sleeping, is an ancient practice whose benefits are just now being appreciated. Reap the rewards of ancient ways of life with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five drop-in Vinyasa or Flow-yoga classes at Yoga U (a $65 value). This Groupon expires July 25.
Yoga U’s team of experienced instructors offers frequently scheduled 75-minute Vinyasa and Flow-yoga classes that form a tranquil oasis designed to quell the healthful thirsts of bodies and minds; no prior yoga experience is required for any of Yoga U's classes. Heated Vinyasa classes are tailored to active lifestyles and challenge apathetic muscles and joints to melt their stiff, misanthropic ice sheaths during strengthening and stretching poses. Flow-yoga classes offer a gentler alternative, taking practitioners through postures with an emphasis on alignment and slower-paced movements reminiscent of snail-propelled glaciers. Class sizes are kept at 10–30 people, allowing for individual attention and manageable group hugs.
Yoga U’s studio windows ensure that a consistent surplus of natural light illuminates a majestic dessert mural, and well-greased door hinges invite fresh air to mingle among the sun salutations when weather permits. New students should arrive 10–15 minutes early for their first class to fill out the necessary paperwork and present their teacher with a core-strengthened apple. Pupils should bring water, a towel, and a mat, though some mats are available to rent for $2 per session. Groupon users who purchase a 10-class package before completing their five sessions will receive an additional complimentary class.
