Instructors at MF Yoga work to integrate mind and body during classes for all levels taught in a flowing vinyasa style. During slow-paced beginner sessions, they focus yoga basics such as finding proper posture alignments and learning to connect deep breaths with movement. More advanced sessions test students' mental and physical strength with challenges such as practicing in a heated room or attempting to hug your own inner child.
The 3,200-square-foot fitness emporium boasts diverse equipment, certified, motivated trainers, and an inimitable approach to workouts not found at traditional gyms. Steeped in the CrossFit style, the energetic establishment tweaks routines to imitate everyday movements and cranks them up to high intensity for the ultimate experience in muscle building and caloric arson.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Moreover, the facilities have a team of certified personal trainers and group fitness instructors who lead one-on-one workouts and fitness classes such Pilates, Zumba, yoga, and spinning, respectively.
