At Momentum Pilates Studio, owner Grace Ranson leads a team of skilled instructors in teaching classes and private sessions that are firmly rooted in the original mat practice and movement progression of Joseph Pilates. In addition to her classical training, she ramps up the traditional Pilates protocol with cardio-infused boot-camp classes and combination classes enhanced by foam rollers, weights, and Pilates Reformer machines. The studio's walls boast an array of colorful artwork, which inspires students of all abilities to become flexible enough to paint their own masterpieces with their feet.
Virginia Discovery Museum delights kids with interactive exhibits. For example, at a miniature Panera Bread stocked with toy food, tots can don real Panera aprons and take orders. They also pick fruit in an interactive play orchard, and go back in time and play in a log cabin from the 1700?s. For a brush with real nature, they can even observe bee behavior at the museum's enclosed hive.
The subaquatic scholars at Dive Connections sate scuba sweet teeth with scuba gear, classes taught by experienced instructors, and seafaring travel adventures. With the individual scuba experience, set sail on the solo sea sojourn by viewing a DVD from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, which contains panoramic video seen through the diver's goggles and a full academic module, followed by a 45-minute orientation during which sea-legged trainers answer all questions. Then, don scuba gear and head to the pool for a one-hour underwater tango with buoyant fettuccini noodles and schools of cracker goldfish under the tutelage of the instructors. In addition, a $50 coupon is included toward a certification class if used within two weeks of your scuba experience. Call to sign up for the individual scuba experience during open-pool hours, usually held Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Two-time winner of C-Ville Weekly's Best Yoga Studio and Teacher award, Bikram Yoga Charlottesville seeks to work every muscle, organ, tendon, ligament, gland, and nerve inside the rigid bulk of human mass entering its doors through a series of 26 sweltering poses and vigorous breathing exercises. As stiff muscles begin to elongate and strengthen, the room softly heats up to 105-plus degrees, the temperature at which greeting cards are written. Classes are 90 minutes of sweat-inducing extension designed to rejuvenate the body and improve a multitude of the body's functions.
Bill Burnett’s staff of wellness whisperers imbues students with fitness expertise amid a supportive and educational environment. During a metabolic training class, pupils partake in fast-paced, full-body routines that can include lunges, sprints, and “stop, drop, and roll” fire-safety lessons. Each sweat session aims to increase participants' metabolic rates, endurance, and strength, and instructors strive to generate maximum calorie burn to expunge unwelcome fat deposits. Classes unfurl within the studio’s cozy, open space where orange walls and exposed brick overlook free weights and cardio machines, and a clock on the wall taunts weight-lifting clients by flaunting its unencumbered hands.
