  • The Zen Zone
    When Ruthann Zentner began studying yoga, she soon realized that its focused breathing, emphasis on enhancing flexibility, and core-strengthening poses could help people of any age achieve mental and physical wellness. Throughout her yoga journey, she spent time working with Shakta Khalsa, a renowned children's yoga instructor, which inspired her to educate children through engaging stories and kid-friendly yoga classes as a certified yoga storyteller. Within the teal-green walls and dark wood floors of the studio, kids limber up while having fun during yoga-centered games, working off the stresses of filing lemonade-stand taxes. Adult students learn the basics in beginner-level yoga classes, or strengthen their cores and improve their balance in PiYo, which merges elements of Pilates and yoga into high-intensity routines. For her older students and those unable to do floor work, she partners poses with four-legged props in chair yoga. Ruthann also trained under Sadie Nardini, an empowerment speaker, yoga and anatomy expert, and Healthy Hedonism lifestyle leader, and received training in ZenBarre, which combines strength, flexibility and cardio. At Zen Zone, she strives to share the latest trends and practices in yoga and Pilates with her students.

  • Bikram Yoga South Kansas City
    Yoga students who practice at Bikram Yoga South Kansas City experience a discipline that is as closely related to founder Bikram Choudhury's as possible, as each class is taught by an instructor who studied directly under the yogi and returns to study with him every three years. With that wealth of knowledge, each teacher approaches classes with a deeper understanding of the physiological and mental benefits of practicing yoga in a heated environment. As the studio's heat increases heart rates, practitioners benefit from an added cardiovascular element during their core strengthening and joint stretching, which also helps the body eliminate toxins through sweating. During classes, instructors also encourage students to look inward while forming each pose. By focusing on the internal state of the body, practitioners become more cognizant of the external influences that affect their well-being, such as negativity and the pieces of sky that have started falling.

  • Body & Soul of Kansas City
    Barbara Anderson is an expert in many forms of exercise, but she only has one goal. In her own words, that goal is to "teach you to move better." What does it mean to move better? For Barbara and her students, it means moving with ease and without pain, and in a way that both reflects and results in good health. Teaching since 1975, Barbara has long honed her instructional technique, and continues to shore up her skills as new workout styles and schools of thought emerge. She's assembled a team of talented teachers at Body and Soul of Kansas City, where the team offers classes in yoga, Feldenkrais, and Pilates. Curricula also include gentle exercise options. The Feldenkrais Method, for example, uses slow repetition to instill awareness of one's body, while a class called NIA offers low-impact cardio dance. Yoga classes, meanwhile, include three different levels in addition to a pre- and post-natal option.

  • Zona Yoga
    The instructors at Zona Yoga have all taken different paths to get to where they are today. They've all studied under numerous mentors, and some have even traveled around the country learning, sharing their wisdom, and picking up different skills. Kelly Colln, for instance, has completed 1,000 hours of education, and is certified to teach restorative yoga. That diversity manifests itself in Zona's schedule, which features a varied selection of yoga approaches: some more fitness-focused, others more therapeutic.
