At Second Wind Yoga, students unroll their mats in a carpeted studio lit by soft lamps. Instructors walk them step by step through the poses and breath work of various styles, including Hatha, Vinyasa, and gentle yoga. They also offer chair yoga and hot yoga, whose high temperatures induce sweating to help flush out bodily toxins.
After years of experience in the fitness industry, Karen Ollari opened Knock Out Fitness to provide a welcoming space for people to get fit while having fun. Within a studio flooded by natural light, she and her team lead up to 30 students in Pilates, boot-camp, kickboxing, and TRX workouts that tone muscles with the forces of gravity. Dance-fitness instructors, meanwhile, teach the basics of Middle Eastern movements in belly-dance classes and lead Latin-inspired routines in Zumba sessions set to global party beats. Alternatively, personal training is available for clients who prefer one-on-one workouts tailored to their specific fitness goals.
The studio also throws high-energy ZumbAtomic birthday parties for kids aged 4–14, offering a healthy alternative to traditional celebrations that involve candy-filled piñatas and frosting-filled dunk tanks.
