To inject some spice into her workouts, Linda Costoff founded Intrigue Fitness as a women-only studio that focuses on group fitness, personal training, and engaging classes. Intrigue specializes in pole-dancing fitness classes, with sessions that include beginner workshops, advanced classes, private lessons, and bachelorette parties. The studio also offers a wide variety of fitness and dance classes.
Fusion Mind/Body’s instructors teach students the worldly art of frame folding in an intimate, supportive setting. A healthy schedule of yoga classes ensures that students of all abilities can find a course that suits their body-torquing needs. Novitiate limb limberers can drop in for an introductory Yoga 101 course, while more experienced practitioners can boost their physical strength and mastery of The Force with an Ashtanga (Power) Yoga session, which focuses on controlled poses and breathing techniques. Students also get access to any of the studio's slate of classes in Pilates and Yogilates, a combined practice that includes poses derived from popular portmanteaus, such as the Craisin, the Unicorn, and the Spork. To ensure that all students receive one-on-one instruction from their instructor, Fusion keeps each class intentionally small.
Ann Waring, the director of Yoga Seva Studio, takes yoga teaching seriously. Her passion drove her to earn multiple certifications from proven yoga masters and attend quarterly trainings. Supported by a team of talented teachers, Ann and her instructors guide students through a blend of demonstration, explanation, and hands-on pose adjustments to help them attain optimal states of fitness and well being. Each of her 70-minute classes blend yoga poses, or asanas, with meditation and breathing techniques that encourage deeper levels of understanding self and this ancient process in a beautiful custom built studio. Over time, Hatha yoga regimens can catalyze weight loss, help relieve chronic pain, and boost flexibility.
As co-owners of The Yoga Room, Elizabeth and Tammy draw on their extensive medical backgrounds to design classes that are fun and effective. Elizabeth's master's degree in public health helps her envision yoga practices that relieve students suffering from diabetes and cancer. Similarly, Tammy's 18 years of chiropractic experience help her tailor yoga practices to improve posture and strengthen seniors' muscles.
Together, they've designed a full schedule of classes that blend traditional yoga poses with Pilates techniques. These classes range in difficulty and intensity; power yoga strengthens muscles through intense, sweat-inducing poses, while restorative yoga relaxes the body more effectively than a shot of government-issued calming serum.
