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.
Sandi Knox, the co-founder of Body Balance, has devised her own set of workout DVDs and appeared on Breakfast Television to showcase her exercises. 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.
Every week, certified yoga instructors help guests stretch into fitter versions of themselves, drawing from their certifications in yoga and fitness training. Seasoned yogis at the Curves club lead all classes within its comfortable facilities. As a Curves trainer, Debra Vandekerkhove also holds within her mental hard drive an encyclopedic knowledge of diets, nutrition, and the favourite snacks of 19th-century prime ministers.
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. Yogis can pop into a Beginner Flow class, advance in the Moderate Flow Level 2, or arrange your loved ones into a pretzel formation during a Family and Beginner Flow experience.
New students only. Depending on participants' experience with Iyengar yoga, students can use this Groupon to move up to level 2 and 3 classes.
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.
Jitendra Yoga's passionate instructors work toward six goals: to serve, love, give, purify, meditate, and realize. Resident yogi Jordan aims to infuse these into everything he does, inside and outside of class. He has turned to yoga to help him overcome depression, and strives to pass those lessons onto his students via yoga classes that aim to bring a sense of calm and balance to their lives. His classes focus on relaxing the body with slow, precise movements and steady, comfortable postures, as well as enriching the mind with meditation and conversation on life philosophies.
Though Jitendra Yoga spans across two studios, the classes remain small, with 3 or 12 students per class. Jordan takes advantage of the intimate class sizes, offering hands-on adjustments and insights into each student's habits, such as not arching your back during a cobra pose or scratching for fleas during a downward dog pose.
Drawing from 15 years of practice, Serge Salvador believes that yoga, like nature, is a beautiful expression of power and fragility. He inspires students of all levels to channel these qualities to cultivate strength, balance, and inner peace. At Aromansse, his team of seasoned instructors imparts yin and yang yoga through the Mysore, Kendra, and Ashtanga traditions, which Salvador practiced at the Foundation of Pathanjala Yoga Kendra in India. Filled with relaxing stretches, yin classes work the joints and connective tissue of the hips and lower back, and yang classes flex and fortify muscles with sitting, standing, and bending poses. An Intro to Ashtanga program steeps beginners in yogic basics, such as pose safety, deep breathing, and chanting, over the course of 10 weeks. In addition to yoga, the Winnipeg location also offers essential oils and flower essences that promote calm and wellness, much like a daily massage from an apple.
Casting off traditional gym formulas, Vivacity Fitness's curriculum focuses on alternative, fun classes that bolster health without monotonous exercise regimes. Kassy Bouchard, a certified personal trainer and fitness enthusiast, helms a team of certified instructors whose varying specialties come together in a schedule of diverse, distinctive classes. Boot camps jump-start fitness programs with cardio and weight-training routines geared toward everyday exercisers. Meanwhile, kickboxing and Zumba get hearts pumping with quick, invigorating movements, while pole dancing forges inner strength and outer confidence with strength- and flexibility-building choreography.
Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its spartan facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneaker to treadmill or lift their first weight, personal trainers meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting a personalized, 60-day fitness plan based on each client’s strength, cardio condition, and bionic limb manufacturer. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthy eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Certified personal trainers work individually with clients routinely, and professional instructors forestall exercise routine boredom with boot camps throughout the week.
