At Hot Yoga Winnipeg, there's no such thing as a class for advanced students only. The instructors of every hot-yoga session welcome total beginners and returning students alike, guiding them through the same series of 26 poses. Adhering to the 90-minute sequence might sound monotonous, but the mix of Hatha-style stretches continually challenges yogis of all body types and skill levels. As the heat enables them to flex more easily, each stance prepares their relevant muscles to attempt the follow-up position, thereby progressively exercising the entire physique. While working out, sweat helps detoxify the body, leaving visitors feeling refreshed and content.
In addition to hot-yoga classes, the teaching team leads a number of course variants. Meditative music overlays the transitions of Hot Hatha, whereas Hot Core sessions focus on longer holds, building students' abdominal strength without making them wear brick-filled fanny packs. Those who wish to expand their repertoire further can take on the 84 asanas of the Hatha yoga class, which showcases several manoeuvres outside of the standard 26-pose series.
For over a decade, women have toned their physiques, improved their body image, and gained energy with goal-oriented workout programs at Image Fitness for Women. The studio’s team of certified yoga instructors teaches styles ranging from Ashtanga and Hatha flow to hot yoga, which is held in a heated studio to provide deeper stretches and enhance cardio conditioning. Meanwhile, heart-pumping classes range from the simple, Latin-inspired dance routines of Zumba to step and cardio classes. The gym’s array of cardio and weight-training equipment powers independent workouts, which can be blissfully peaceful thanks to onsite child-care services.
Every week, certified yoga instructors help guests stretch into fitter versions of themselves, drawing from their certifications in yoga and fitness training.

Along with co-owner Sheldon Gephter, she oversees a fitness studio that hosts group classes in latin-dance-inspired Zumba, kick-boxing workouts, and yoga. Their eclectic boot-camp workouts consist of cardio, circuit training, resistance training and more, rather than imitating traditional workouts in which everyone holds a squat until they fall asleep. Elsewhere in the facility, Eric Payment, the studio’s on-site massage therapist, kneads away aches from neck ailments and sports injuries on his memory-foam massage table.

Beth Martens, a yoga instructor with nearly 20 years of experience and cancer survivor, specializes in helping to bring the body back to its natural healthy state of balance so that the mind can focus. Classes (drop-ins $15 per class) blend Ashtanga Vinyaasa and lyengar-style yoga into a fusion of safe, flowing, and precise movements, all performed to Beth's live meditative music, a form of singing called kirtan. Try your hand at the Beginner or Restorative classes, with alignment instruction and pose discussion to teach spines how to posture properly, or twist through the Power Flow Level 3 session, if putting on earrings with your toes already sounds eminently do-able.

When not in the gym, Advantage Conditioning's co-owner, Marty Shumka, acts as a health consultant to corporations, hosts a weekly exercise show on Shaw TV, and makes guest appearances on Breakfast Television. He is sought after for both his knowledge of fitness and exercise trends and his proven success at his own gym.
Leading a team of professional trainers, he and co-founder Lindsay Jurkowski personalize workouts. They travel to clients’ homes or offices for personal sessions or lead small, tight-knit groups of encouraging peers through rigorous boot camps in the studio. Exercisers who prefer to go it alone can cycle through Advantage Conditioning’s ample stock of free weights, resistance bands, and strength and cardio machines. The facility also addresses injuries sustained from playing sports or MMA-fighting a rival mascot with athletic-therapy treatments that involve massage and electric muscle stimulation.
Moksha Yoga Winnipeg’s students stretch toward the sky, reflecting their teachers’ belief that yoga’s benefits are limitless. Held in balmy rooms warmed by radiant heating panels, hot-yoga classes help limber muscles and extract toxins. These routines begin with a relaxing supine pose, gradually progressing to standing stretches and balances designed to build strength, stability, and endurance. Floor-based bends bolster the spine and open the hips, which can enhance posture and flexibility. Cork flooring cushions joints and wards off microbes, and filtered faucets fill water bottles with water as cool and clean as a freshly scrubbed snowman. Experienced instructors also lead non-heated classes for students of all levels, including intense yet accessible barre classes, which use small isometric movements to improve core strength and help compliment other yoga classes.
The septet of instructors at Yoga Pilates & More join forces, drawing from their varied backgrounds in dance, yoga, and fitness to host classes in their specialties, like an acupressure expert and joyful movement expert, who oversees Nia's fusion of martial arts, rhythm, and yoga within the bright green studio space.
Though they conduct their classes at different paces, the teachers work jointly to cultivate an atmosphere of acceptance and support, welcoming all students no matter their age, ability level, or Rocky movie preference.
What began for Dillon Cherrett as a way to supplement his athletic lifestyle eventually turned into the lifestyle itself. At first, yoga was just a way for Cherrett to strengthen his body and improve flexibility. That was more than two decades ago. These days, he and his staff work hard to share their extensive knowledge at Source Yoga Studios, where nine types of yoga classes range from restorative, peaceful sessions to flowing, rapid movements that help build a strong core.
St. James Hot Yoga's dedicated instructors help students of all ages and abilities unite mind, body, and soul during Ashtanga flow, hot Hatha yoga, and kids’ yoga classes. Between opening standing postures and closing savasana, or meditation, they lead athletic and relaxing series of postures linked with breath to flush out toxins, pump up flexibility, and tone physiques. These health-minded instructors carve out regulated water breaks to keep students hydrated without disrupting the class's flow or the retired yoga mats sleeping beneath the floorboards.
During classes at Pilates Manitoba, instructors encourage students to not only learn their movements, but how their movements are affecting themselves. Using Pilates treatments' profound way of sensing, feeling and moving the body, they also can modify moves for students with injuries or health issues.
