I am very excited about the Passport To Prana. I’ve been seriously toying with the thought of taking up yoga for years. I would love the long, lean muscular physique of some of my serious yoga buddies and I know that I could certainly benefit from a little anxiety reduction techniques (what New Yorker couldn’t?). So far I haven’t been able to bring myself to commit to a studio membership. I’m not sure which one would be best for me, nor which class would be a good starting place for a lanky beginner who can’t even touch her toes. There seem to be so many different varieties of yoga out there. Which do I choose? Then my passport arrived in the mail.

How does Passport To Prana work? It’s simple. For $30, you purchase your passport on or at a participating yoga studio. This card entitles you to one class at over 30 participating yoga studios in Manhattan and Brooklyn. So you do the math. For less than $1 you can try out a class and see if it works for you. You activate your card and search for classes online. And the card is good until the end of March 2011. Whether you’re a yoga virgin or a seasoned poser, this is a sweet deal that should not be passed up. Oh, and it’s not only available for New Yorkers. There’s a Passport to Prana for Boston, Denver, San Francisco, Chicago, Philly, Seattle, Portland and Dallas. Be on the lookout for me, perfecting my Downward Facing Dog all over town.
