Inside Barefoot Studio's spacious, 4,000-square-foot facility, instructors guide students through a variety of yoga classes according to experience levels in two separate practice spaces. The studio’s team of studied yoga instructors lead students through a seven-day schedule of morning and evening 90-minute stretch sessions, including a beginners' class to acquaint newbies with the foundational postures and breathing exercises necessary for more advanced classes. Veterans gather for Hot Fusion Yoga classes in a 92- to 95-degree room, letting the heat maximize their flexibility and appreciation for January. Hatha and Vinyasa classes are also available. Yin Yoga instructors help students target the deep connective tissues surrounding the joints and the muscles around the hips, pelvis, and lower back by holding postures for 3–10 minutes at a time. Though the studio hosts educational workshops and special events, this Groupon is only valid for 90-minute yoga classes.
At Sotaira's Organic Spa & Yoga Studio, staff members instill visitors with a newfound sense of confidence by gussying up exteriors and keeping bodies fit with yoga and Pilates classes. Slimming body wraps help to purge inches more effectively than a corset imbued with the force of 10,000 bear hugs, and aestheticians hydrate visages with such organic ingredients as chamomile or antioxidant-rich red grapes. The massage therapists' mental rolodex of modalities includes relaxing and therapeutic techniques as well as maternity treatments for expectant mothers or hatching ostrich eggs. Intent on refining posture, instructors of the center's Vinyasa yoga and Pilates mat classes help to keep bodies and minds trim regardless of students' skill level or age.
When she was a kid, yearly family visits to California persuade Johanna Epps to move west as soon as possible. En route in 2001, she attended her first yoga class in Phoenix. Within a year, she had quit her job to teach the exercise form. After wracking up extensive training experience and meeting all but one California Raisin, Johanna moved back to Arkansas, where she founded Go Inside Yoga Studio. Here, she teaches vinyasa-style yoga classes for beginner and intermediate students, with an emphasis on hard work.
While she picked up her yogic training on her travels, Johanna's studio has been in her family for generations. Originally called Ma Tuckers, the joint served Southern-style fare to students and factory workers. Although the ghosts of grits and greens still haunt the hallways, Johanna's studio has been completely remodeled by her father to suit her yogic practices.
Conway Yoga's dedicated yoga instructor Meg Gorvine combines her years of experience and passion for teaching to guide students of all skill levels through Hatha and Vinyasa yoga classes. Slower-paced Hatha yoga classes provide an entry-level environment where inexperienced students and timid spirit animals can learn basic postures. Students seeking a more vigorous workout can challenge bodies and minds during flowing Vinyasa yoga classes, where pupils move from one posture to the next, using deep breathing techniques to hone concentration, balance, and origami sticky-mat skills.
In conjunction with the yoga studio, The Floating Lotus Day Spa aims to beautify and relax clients using all-natural therapies, including body wraps, organic facials, waxing services, and massages. Wielding Éminence Organics skincare products, aestheticians deep cleanse faces using biodynamic ingredients designed to naturally hydrate and rejuvenate faces. Within the day spa's private rooms, therapists use methods such as Thai massage and foot-focused reflexology, as well as warmed lava stones, to melt away any knots or stale marshmallows hiding beneath the skin.
As a combined yoga and skincare studio, Studio Lift serves as a calming oasis for both mind and body. Students of all skill levels travel to the studio with their mats, ready for sessions of meditative chanting, stretching, and inspiring music. Staff at the studio also furthers relaxation with massage and beautifies clients with waxing services.:m]]
