Intensity Fitness Dance Studio?s owner Vickkie Parent turned to Zumba after the tediousness of regular gym workouts started to bore her. At her studio, she helps her students avoid these types of plateaus with classes?such as dance-inspired Zumba or Piyo Strength?that mask a workout behind a fun activity. All of the classes that she and her fellow instructors teach can be modified to challenge veterans or ease first-timers into exercise.
For the past six years, Kusum Institute Yoga has thrived in Saco as the calming space called Saco River Yoga. Now a second newly renovated wellness haven in Scarborough has opened its doors to both beginner and experienced yogis who seek calmness of body and mind. The space hosts weekly yoga classes, workshops, and community events, welcoming all shapes and skill levels to its studio. Skilled instructors provide individualized attention to clients who want to center themselves while basking in the tranquility of the space. Additionally, all of teachers practiced together as students?and still do?in these studios, which further deepens their connection to their students and their calming craft.
