Urban Zen Yoga Studio helps gym-goers hone their flexibility, mental clarity, and core strength with a slew of yoga classes. In basic yoga classes, students nail down alignment, breath control, and postures, many of which can be performed with variations. Then, they can move onto more challenging styles, such as hot Vinyasa. In a studio set to 95 degrees––or about 308 Kelvin––they follow a tough series of poses inspired by Bikram, ashtanga, and kundalini yoga.
Ever since The Alaska Club opened its first location in 1986, they've been striving to serve their members by adding amenities, classes, and opening new locations. Though each location?s offerings vary, they supplement their well-stocked fleets of cardio machines and strength equipment with cycling studios, climbing walls, basketball courts, swimming pools, and play centers for the kids. The club also offers spa services including hydromassage beds, tanning, and saunas.
Group fitness classes include yoga, step aerobics, and Pilates, and personal trainers stand at the ready to help clients focus on fitness goals. The clubs also offer swim lessons and summer camps for kids, setting in stone their commitment to making The Alaska Club a place for the whole family, not the half-formed family, which needs at least seven more years to gestate in the laboratory incubator.
The staff at Sun Solution may ask you to remove your shoes when you enter the shop, but it’s not because they’re concerned about dirt.

The infrared body wraps help clients detox and manage stress and pain. These body wraps also encourage weight loss.
Sun Solution has provides tanning services. They use Smart Tan certifications to chart the best tanning plan for their skin type and color goals. They then select options from a fleet of equipment that includes lay-down, standup, and upside-down tanning booths, as well as a Versa Spa spray-tanning machine, which administers a full-body spray tan in 46 seconds. Clients looking to ensure a deeper, more even tan can opt to start by hopping in the studio's hydration station, where a 20- to 30-minute session can help promote better absorption of nutrients and products, and also help skin adopt a softer, firmer appearance.
At Sun Splash Tanning Salon, patrons can obtain tanned pelts with sessions in either UV lay-down beds or UV-free spray tanning booths. 5,000 watts of UV-tanning bulbs bronze bodies for up to 15 minutes inside the lay-down beds, all of which are new models that have been acquired within the past year. Those opting for UV-free color pop into the spray-tanning booths, whose stand-up design enables the bronzer to mist upon bodies and their complexion-conscious shadows from every angle.
Sundance Tanning's experts know that although fresh tans can make clients feel better, the process itself isn't glamorous. That’s why along with goggles and lotion, they provide towels, moist wipes, deodorant, and even hair spray—everything clients might need to feel refreshed after tanning.
Licensed stylist Ema Olsen further helps clients feel beautiful by transforming tresses with face-flattering cuts and adding dimension with highlights. While styling hair in the quiet salon area at the back of Sundance Tanning, she uses high-end Schwarzkopf products, such as the BC Moisture Kick intensive-hydration treatment.
