Pulse Studio Group Fitness makes a sedentary lifestyle nearly impossible to keep up, since clients can find encouragement in a range of group fitness classes. Whether learning new yoga poses, a calorie-blasting Zumba dance routine, or how to kickbox your way out of a locked bathroom, Pulse Studio's classes cultivate a fun, social atmosphere that makes workouts a bright spot in your day.
Heights Wellness Center's owner Sandra Lawrence set out to open a practice that improves upon the skills of a single practitioner by combining them with the skills of an entire team of health specialists. She has assembled registered dietitians and massage therapists who work neck and neck with acupuncturists, yoga instructors, and life coaches to help clients overcome a range of physical and emotional ailments.
In addition to working one-on-one with clients, the team leads group workshops. Body Karma Healing classes help women find a healthy body image, and breathing workshops help the body reduce asthma and panic attacks brought on by the realization that chickens aren’t going to put up with this egg-stealing stuff forever.
The ClassRoom challenges fitness fiends and neophytes alike with a schedule packed with 10 different types of booty-kicking group classes, each between 30 and 60 minutes long. Guests can join experienced instructors to take advantage of the functional conditioning of kettle bells, find inner sultriness with urban striptease aerobics, or carve out cut cores with traditional mat Pilates. Legs and arms transform into high achievers in 101 and honors classes, which define limbs with weights, resistance bands, and plyometrics, and the high-energy, Latin-influenced choreography of Zumba results in head-turning tone and eye-catching confidence boosts.
As one of Cleveland's first Vinyasa yoga studios, Evolution Yoga Studios & Boutique promotes a personal yoga experience in an eco-conscious studio setting. Founder and director Sandy Gross embraces mindfulness and meditation in each of the studio's array of sinew-stretching classes. Beginners nurture alignment during introductory technique and practice sessions, advancing to heated Vinyasa classes that expel sweat. Bodies build pristine core muscles during 50-minute Pilates sessions, and restorative yoga focuses on the breath in tandem with subtle bends and twists. The studio's schedule hosts multiple sessions daily for all skill levels.
