Though Adam got to name all the animals in Paradise, his brother, Alvin, created the yoga poses that emulate them. Do your best cat or cow impression with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a five-class card (an $80 value) at Yogasana Center in Brooklyn.
Yogasana strives to help stretching students balance minds and bodies with a schedule of Iyengar-style yoga classes suitable for all skill levels. Iyengar yoga focuses on correct anatomical alignment with poses that are enhanced by using blocks, straps, wooden legs, and other props. Experienced instructors will cater to each yogi's individual needs during all sessions, and namaste newbies can learn the basics in nurturing level-one classes. Intermediate and advanced students practice headstands, backbends, and other core-strengthening exercises in stress-relieving, restorative stretch sessions. Find relief from spine asymmetry and posterior problems in Yogasana's back-care class, and moms-to-be can prepare for labor with prenatal classes. Whether you want to stand taller, bend over backward, or open a pickle jar taped to your back, Yogasana offers a suitable yoga style.
Yogasana's expansive facility provides curtained changing rooms that let flexmasters with day jobs shed work attire before bending and have an abundance of cubbyholes to store suits, shoes, and unflattering employee ID cards. All props, including mats, are provided, though students are welcome to bring their own surfaces if they choose. First-timers should arrive 15 minutes early to register.

- This place is great! It's amazing how super knowledgeable the teachers are, I feel that you always get a lot of attention and everyone has a very zen-loving attitude here, including the other practitioners. New space is great--just wish I had more time for yoga! – aquagirl26, Citysearch
