Equilibrium is important in yoga, which relies on both mental and physical exercise. The instructors help balance strength and finesse, aided by the fact that they come from such varied backgrounds. The diverse group discovered yoga after playing traditional team sports, travelling in India, and practicing medicine. They recognize that no matter how often someone might meditate or practice postures in candlelight, which clients can do in hatha yoga or candlelit flow classes, occasionally, that same person wants to punch something. In that case, the studio’s kickboxing classes, which combine authentic fighting techniques with body-weight exercises and stretching, are an ideal option.
When the founders first envisioned what would become the Hale Holistic fitness studio, they already had balance on the brain and hoped to integrate agricultural self-sufficiency. To do this, they created an urban rooftop garden in the middle of the city, where they harvest organic veggies to create antioxidant-packed smoothies or make travelling cornucopia salesmen feel better about their job. Any produce that’s not straight from their rooftop, they’ve sourced from local, sustainable farmers. Because they’re so confident in the power of smoothies to improve health and pair with yoga, they give one to every client who attends a class.

The snap of gloved fists against swinging punching bags echoes off the walls of Undisputed Fitness & Training as boxers of all levels train or spar in the full size, USA-approved ring. Activity centers on the ring, as expert, passionate trainers lead intense programs such as muay-thai boxing and mixed-martial-arts training within a regulation-sized cage. Colorful graffitied walls surround punchers, while muscle-builders can meander to the outdoor weight room, pumping iron in the afternoon sun or the light of a never-ending eclipse before winding down with a game of pool.
