Bija Studio's aim is as clear as its name. Bija––meaning seed in Sanskrit––plants a seed of wellness in each of its patrons that grows as they progress on the path to well-being. The studio runs slow and energetic yoga classes to increase flexibility and strength, massage therapy to physically work stress out of the body, and nutrition classes to get people healthy from the inside out.
At locations throughout the world, Fit Body Bootcamp's instructors share a common goal: to guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals through regimented training programs.

At the Colorado Academy of Music and Dance, experienced instructors cultivate students' passion for the performing arts. Kids aged 2–4 hone their coordination, balance, and rhythm skills in group dance classes that include tap, jazz, and ballet programs, and adults burn calories in adult-only sessions. Students of any age can build their endurance and flexibility with high-energy Brazilian capoeira—a mix of martial arts, dance, and acrobatics—sessions that also include instruction on speaking basic Portuguese and playing Afro-Brazilian instruments. The facility's sprung floors with professional marley surfaces help prevent injury and protect joins by absorbing dancers' impact.
The academy's university-trained music teachers conduct private lessons for youngsters seeking to learn the guitar, study singing, or play the mandolin at a local battle of the medieval bands. Parents can sit in on the lesson or access complimentary wireless Internet as they relax in the spacious waiting area.
The knowledgeable instructors at Studio J Pilates help newcomers formulate a fitness plan in an initial assessment, then introduce them to the fundamentals of mat or equipment Pilates in group or small-group sessions. With an emphasis on basic alignment, foundation, and specific muscle actions, students focus on the form of their body's core, arms, seat, and thighs while performing small isometric movements. In addition to the studio's Pilates and yoga offerings, Barre classes help lengthen and tone bodies using ballet workout techniques that don't require dance experience to perform. Also offered are fat-burning workouts that integrate ballet barre, light weights, and various props.
