At AsiYoga, registered yoga teacher Jaimeleigh Christian instills in students her passion for a wide range of yoga techniques and styles. Her expertise covers the slow-paced stretching of Hatha as well as the purifying detoxification, synchronized breathing, and advanced frontal lobe flexing of Vinyasa.

Toting mats, towels, and water, students pass beneath snow-white arches to enter a studio decorated only with the occasional book, candle, and plant doing and handstand. Red and coral adorn “the hot room,” the colors’ warmth echoing temperatures that soar to 105 degrees during Bikram yoga sessions. Guided by the Bikram philosophy, instructors shepherd pupils through 26 specific postures that systematically work every area of the body. The practice is designed to increase mobility and restore balance to a host of bodily systems, and utilizes heat to soften the body and help detoxify the body through sweating.
Ed Joseph wants to change your body, and he offers a simple, no-frills prescription: work hard and eat right. At Man Up Boot Camp, Ed employs a proven philosophy to jump-start the metabolism, boost muscle growth, and burn calories.

Justin Fassio earned his personal-training certification during his time in the military, when his passion for exercise landed him the chance to lead a physical training program for an Air Force–operations group.

Nutritionist Rachel Bowman has a background in Clinical and Holistic Nutrition, offering a wide acumen of current nutritional research. Her career now emphasizes weight management in all walks of life, ranging from digestive health to healthy eating while traveling.

The partnership of the two is ideal at San Diego Core Fitness, where staffers emphasize that fitness and nutrition always work hand-in-hand. The varied boot-camp workouts fuse fun and motivation with functional training techniques designed to help build up neglected core muscles and regain muscular balance. Personal-training sessions are supplemented with nutritional advice and lifestyle counseling, and keeps semiprivate training sessions small so that each participant can receive individual attention.

Pura vida roughly translates to “full of life”, something Xenia Guido, founder of Pura Vida Yoga, aims to create for her students in her studio. Rooted in the flow-based vinyasa style of yoga, classes blend physical, mental, and spiritual pursuits, building flexibility, breath-work to stay the mind, and peaceful centeredness. The series of alignment-based movements can inspire deep concentration and self-awareness, but they also provide a vigorous workout.
Xenia also founded Pura Vida on the principle of community. She encourages students to talk to each other and designed her classes to be as inclusive as possible. Whether novice or advanced yogi, students can attend most sessions since they can be scaled to fit any experience level. New students who feel more comfortable with other beginners also have the option of taking level 1 classes to learn basic poses and how to swaddle a newborn yoga mat.
The heated studio itself also feels “full of life” as if it sprung fully formed from the soil thanks to Xenia’s eco-conscious mindset. The floor uses natural cork to cushion feet and prevent jolts to the joints during vigorous sets. Cork blocks and yoga mats made from natural materials are also available in the boutique.

At her studio, she and her team of instructors guide groups through poses that strengthen and focus the body and the mind. They also help students bridge the gap between physical and spiritual wellness during personal-training sessions.
