In 2003, Mountain Yoga Sandy was founded by Alex and Jacqueline Wheeler. Recently, Mountain Yoga has expanded and now has 2 studio rooms offering a variety of classes for students of all backgrounds.
The Big Cottonwood room offers hot yoga classes while the Little Cottonwood Room offers kids' yoga, Pilates-Barre, Vinyasa flow, Vin-Yin, and restorative yoga.
At each of Crossroads Fitness' four locations throughout the Wastach Front, members of all ages build strong, healthy bodies through a regimen of group classes, personal training, and extensive wellness evaluations and health assessments. Registered dietitians and fitness experts help clients manage their fitness goals, while a schedule of BodyPump, Zumba, yoga, and resistance training burn away unwanted fat while building lean muscle. After leveling up their endurance and speed with sports-performance training or flexing their legs in a cycling class, members relax and rehabilitate muscles with on-site massage therapy.
A hip injury ended dancer/choreographer Richard Giorla?s dance career, but not his love for staying active.
So he used his 30 years of experience in the business to create the Cardio Barre workout, which combines dance and fitness with a ballet barre. Cardio Barre Quarry Bend?s owners, Megan Cross and Shantel Reitz, guide individuals through Giorla?s workouts during classes that start as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m.
Tadasana Yoga Studio's 10 instructors tap into years of training and experience to lead enthusiastic yogis of all levels through heated group-exercise classes. Ninety-minute Bikram yoga classes encourage participants to unfurl across yoga mats through a sequence of 26 postures as tireless air ducts and domesticated dragons heat the space up to 105 degrees. Power Vinyasa classes in 60-, 75-, and 90-minute sessions reach 95-degree temperatures as Baron Baptiste–inspired exercises strengthen muscles and cores. Eighteen weekly yoga classes are held as early as 6:30 a.m. or as late as 6:45 p.m., allowing for heated workouts before breakfast or following afternoons spent painting still lifes of breakfast.
With backgrounds in dance, gymnastics, and other sports, the instructors at Range are familiar with the long-term benefits of healthy movement. From inside an intimate studio, they rely on Pilates and Gyrotonic programs to combat fitness woes and injuries alike, acquainting guests with an array of spring- and pulley-based machinery. They host group and private classes that adjust their plans to each student's needs. On the Gyrotonic tower, they guide bodies through exercises for mobility conducted in all three dimensions, unlike the one-dimensional sit-ups known as "naps." They also fortify core muscles with Pilates Reformers, chairs, and props. The elegant simplicity of their small studio reflects a no-frills devotion to the human form, as well as to the earth—the staff utilizes eco-friendly goods such as bamboo and organic-cotton towels and tea-tree-oil cleaning solutions.
The fitness specialists at Studio HV whip their clients into shape using simple exercises that align with natural, functional movements. Classes are designed for all levels of fitness, from beginners to the most active of athletes. Using their full body, members practice natural movement to complete and efficient and effective workouts. A steady change-up of class offerings? from Mat Pilates to Insane Legs?keeps muscles guessing.
