Series inspires, encourages and challenges beginning and experienced students through Baron’s powerful yoga process of sculpting your ideal body and freeing your true self.

The Drowsy Chaperone Gift Certificate
Fresh from it’s triumphant run in L.A. (where it has been nominated for 8 Drama Critic’s Circle Awards), the Drowsy Chaperone is now on Broadway, full of life, energy, laughter, singing, and champagne. This is a new Broadway musical that boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts to be entertained. If you’ve ever sat in a darkened theater and thought, “Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good,” this is the show for you. It all begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love. Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw of Spamalot. Don’t miss this hit!
