Fraser Valley’s yoga facility pioneering far-infrared classes, Beach Yoga & Wellness combines yoga and Pilates instruction with creatively themed classes that include Rock 'n Roll hot yoga and Hot Heat Happy Hips yoga. Veteran instructors help students stretch and lunge through poses in a hot-yoga environment enhanced by far-infrared waves that facilitate the release of up to seven times more bodily toxins than the average yoga session. The gentle radiation is known to improve skin tone by stimulating the production of collagen. By combing the infrared energy with the studio's steamy temperature, students experience an "artificial fever" that, like a real fever, ignites the body's immune system better than using jumper cables.
At each of Oxygen Yoga & Fitness’ locations, trained fitness instructors guide students through a seven-day schedule packed with yoga, boot camp, meditation, and TRX suspension training classes. The modern studios come equipped with infrared heated yoga rooms where students strengthen muscles during yoga poses as the specialized light aims to improve their skin tone and erase their cellulite. During TRX suspension training sessions, exercisers are suspended in the air by belts attached to the ceiling and use their own body weight to fight gravity. The classes are designed for all fitness levels and aim to build long, lean muscles and give guests a place to practice their levitation skills. The studio also schedules kids' yoga sessions designed to increase children’s confidence and provide full-body workouts.
Inside a room heated to a balmy 105 degrees Fahrenheit, a certified Bikram yoga instructor leads students through eagle, locust, and rabbit poses. These poses, part of a 26-asana sequence designed by yogi Bikram Choudhury, are intended to increase oxygen and blood flow through every inch of the body. Though the physical benefits of a stronger, more flexible body are undeniable, the good done to the mental and spiritual selves can only be described—a greater sense of peace, increased mental clarity, and the ability to tolerate people who talk about their night dreams. Eager to share its passion for the practice, the staff at Bikram Yoga equips new students with everything they need to succeed. Friendly receptionists hand students towels and mats before pointing them in the direction of clean, sleek changing and shower areas. The studio itself is constantly filled with purifying practitioners, as a deep bench of certified instructors teach both morning and evening classes seven days a week.
Ariyanna Pascuzzi started her 35-year fitness career as a professional dancer, but she eventually gained expertise (and certifications) in everything from aquatic fitness to Pilates.
