Like Jello furniture and rules about starting bonfires in the workplace, human bodies are made to be bent. Help your body reach its potential for pliability with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited yoga and Pilates mat classes at YogaWorks’ five New York City–area locations (a $149 value). Today's deal cannot be used for Pilates reformer classes.
YogaWorks' fleet of expert instructors administers a spectrum of classes for benders of all abilities in five different studios. Limber up with well-known traditions such as Ashtanga and Vinyasa or sample lesser-known paths to lithe enlightenment, such as Iyengar, known in secret circles as "the way of the swift-handed dancing snake." Different poses unblock dammed channels of energy, and deep breathing suffuses the fatigued spirit with renewed vigor, like blowing into a Nintendo cartridge, allowing you to finally become flexible enough to eat your food with your feet and touch your earlobes together.
Guided by a mission of embracing every student's quest for personal growth, the team at YogaWorks offers programs for all ages and walks of life. Harnessing a minimum of 500 hours of Yoga Alliance training, expert instructors build lean muscles with traditional Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Vinyasa flow classes enhanced by inspiring music, ambient candlelight, meditation, and props. Their fitness classes further the body-shaping results of yoga, strengthening core muscles with Pilates, increasing endurance and lean muscles with TRX classes, and building stamina with resistance-based SculptWorks.
Instructors also host exotic yoga retreats, which marry the excitement of travel to far-away locales with the benefits of yoga to bestow students with the confident grace required to approach a foreign yoga mat without startling it. Those in search of further training can access online videos by subscribing to myyogaworks.com, which offers a free, 14-day trial for new users. Students can search for videos by workout duration, skill level, and the targeted area of the body.
