Ancient yogis were famed for their ability to live in solitude, to exist in peace with nature, and to turn into raccoons whenever they were near a garbage can. Transform yourself into a beacon of stretchy peace with today's Groupon: for $36, you get six yoga classes at Mind, Body, Spirit Yoga with Jim Whiting (a $90 value). Classes are held at the Center for Integrative Health and Healing in Delmar.
Certified Kripalu yoga instructor Jim Whiting offers beginning and intermediate students a chance to sample the method’s happy vibes in three yoga class offerings. Kripalu yoga employs postures, breathing exercises, and mindfulness to decrease anxiety and produce enough prana, or positive energy, to effortlessly rescue puppies stranded in redwood trees. Enter the arena of enlightenment with the beginner’s yoga class on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., or water already budding skills at intermediate sessions on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. Rooster posers can rise for Wake-Up classes on Saturday mornings at 9 a.m.
Whiting calls upon deep knowledge of his craft to assist students in achieving proper alignment, safe stretching, and the correct breathing patterns to journey deeper into their yoga practices. Classes last 90 minutes, and reservations by phone or email are required for Groupon customers. Activate this Groupon within three months of purchase, and be sure to use all six sessions within three months of activation. This deal allows you to share your classes with others.
Body Mind Spirit Yoga
A gentle warm-up readies students at Body Mind Spirit Yoga for a flow of poses, each performed while standing, sitting, kneeling, and lying down. As students go through these motions, they're encouraged to reconnect with their bodies, regardless of whether they're in a beginner, advanced, or all-levels class. Instructors Jim Whiting and Michelle Carpenter, who've been practicing yoga for more than 30 years combined, also helm free guided meditation sessions, during which participants follow mantra-based breathing while perched atop cozy chairs, floors, cushions, blankets, or skyscrapers.
