Rafting Montréal
http://www.raftingmontreal.com/
8912 boulevard LaSalle

In the Victorian era, adventure sports were limited to teatime without doilies, writing witty satires about earnesty, and riding a bassinet down a mild incline. Today’s Groupon would shock such staid sensibilities: for $20, you get a rafting excursion from Rafting Montreal in LaSalle (a $41 value).

Rafting Montreal’s professional helmsmen guide paddlers of all ages and skill levels on nautical odysseys of more than two hours down the Lachine Rapids. Each sturdy raft carries 10–12 expeditioners, enough participants to form a rock choir after white-water bonding. Those who opt for the Rafting Adventure can traverse the Lachine’s most powerful rapids and even hop in and swim the last leg of the journey if so desired. The Rafting Family adventure, meanwhile, whisks voyageurs ages 6 and up down calmer channels, ensuring an adventure both thrilling and safe, just like secretly dog-earing library books.

Rafts embark throughout the day from Rafting Montreal’s waterfront headquarters, mere minutes from downtown. Rafting Montreal also offers free parking for cars and buses, and it supplies all necessary equipment, though sandals and rain gear can be rented for a fee. Customers require nothing but a change of clothes and a willingness to refrain from challenging other customers to paddle jousts. Peruse the predeparture checklist here for additional journey tips.

With today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Pub St. Paul, located in the historic Old Port quarter. This Groupon is valid after 7 p.m. Mondays–Fridays and all day Saturdays and Sundays.

Pub St. Paul nourishes the belly and soul with its pub specialties in a spacious rock ‘n’ roll sanctuary featuring live Québecoise beats.

Ribs ($14/half rack, $20/whole rack), and steaks, such as the pepper-sauce-topped new york strip ($18), fulfill cravings for succulence, and the tilapia fillet subsequently drowns them in juicy decadence ($14). Dishes can be paired with a beverage from the libations list, including wine and 20 beers, ensuring throat whistles remain thoroughly wet for friendly echolalia contests.

Guests can also partake in the pub’s specials, such as fresh Indian fare on Fridays, served alongside the eatery’s rock-music murals and foosball and billiards tables. Check out Pub St. Paul’s nightlife blog to catch some of Quebec’s talented music acts and upcoming parties at the pub.

Today’s Groupon: for $36, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes at Happy Tree Yoga in Westmount (a $120 value).

Voted one of the best yoga studios in Montreal by Montreal Mirror readers in 2009, Happy Tree Yoga offers a variety of diverse yoga disciplines in its spacious, sunlit downtown studio. Let experienced instructors restack precariously balanced chakras with classes such as Hatha yoga, schooling yogis in standing and seated postures, along with breathing and meditation techniques. Hot yoga, meanwhile, heats up the studio to 35 degrees Celsius, aiming to detoxify the body while rendering limbs as springy and strong as a jetpack-powered kangaroo.

Happy Tree‘s schedule boasts morning, afternoon, and evening classes and is open seven days a week, making it easy to fit classes in without postponing evening competitive-eating contests. The studio offers changing rooms, lockers, and showers in which to wash away postworkout dew, plus a retail store and a welcoming lounge in which students can warm up their bellies with hot tea before and after practice.

Today’s Groupon to Dermacure lets you restore your cheeks’ original splendour. Choose between the following options:

Dermacure’s team of aesthetic experts reinvigorate weary skin with safe, noninvasive procedures. The IPL photofacial harnesses the powers of intense pulsed light to penetrate the skin and free it from acne, wrinkles, age spots, stretch marks, and other skeleton-suit imperfections. The treatment lasts less than an hour, making it easy to squeeze one in between workday and evening activities.

The Cynosure Affirm anti-aging treatment, meanwhile, utilizes pulsed light and laser technology to reduce wrinkles, pigmentation, age spots, and redness, resulting in a younger, healthier epidermis. Without resorting to invasive procedures with slow recovery times, clients can keep skin tighter than an inner tube around Santa’s belly.

903 Rue Saint Zotique Est, Montréal, QC

At Studio Caravane, students delve into the Gitane, a global dance tradition forged from Spanish flamenco and traditional gypsy dances of India and Europe. Limber up for springtime butterfly pursuits by converging with a small weekly class of fellow beginner, novice, or advanced dancers. Over the course of six sessions, students will not only learn gypsy dance moves but will also improve coordination, strength, and flexibility of both the body and their foot penmanship.

The spacious studio, replete with bamboo floors and soft lighting, fosters an atmosphere of creativity and self-expression, distinctly unlike the atmosphere fostered by monologue recitals in crowded elevators. Instructor Dominique Favreau applies not only extensive knowledge of global dance styles but also a background in yoga and martial arts, ensuring a balanced, holistic, and fun approach to bodily gyrations.
