Having dominated the stage at Magic City and lent her moves to multiple music videos—including Jay-Z's "Excuse Me Miss"—Gigi Maguire now hopes to pass down her spotlight-fetching expertise. At PoleFanAddicts Inc., she and her team of instructors draw from an impressive range of dance styles to impart rhythm, moxie, and muscle. From a class that focuses entirely on Beyonce's choreography to a ballet-inspired pole workout, sessions cover sultry steps in all of their forms. Instructors also lead seven distinct levels of pole-dancing, teaching students to go upside down in gradual steps until level seven, when they are right-side up again.
All Life is Yoga owner Rutu Chaudhari, who trained under the tutelage of yoga masters Aadil Palkhivala and Savitri, captains Purna yoga classes, a type of exercise that focuses on unifying mind and body with the spirit. Classes, previously featured on The A List, begin with centering and meditation before launching into the basics of alignment-based asana, flexibility, strength, endurance, and anchoring a tug-of-war team, and classes that teach levels one and two build on existing skill with focused movements and poses. Students in classes that range from 25 to 30 pupils who have two or more months of bending under their belts excel in demanding all-levels classes, and those recently injured or stressed languidly lengthen stiff joints and muscles in gentle sessions. Meditation-oriented gatherings focus on opening the pathways of communication between spirit and heart, allowing hearts to finally confess deep-seated desires to become kidneys. All Life is Yoga also examines nutrition and lifestyle during monthly cooking classes (not valid with this Groupon). Whether you want to stand taller, bend over backward, or open a pickle jar taped to your back, All Life is Yoga offers a suitable yoga style.
At Agni Power Yoga, instructors test the physical limits of experienced practitioners and beginners alike. During classes, teachers weave postures and breathing exercises into a seamless yet rigorous practice. According to the website, students should "expect to sweat."
