The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Smiling terra-cotta statues, forever posing, and potted orchids caught in a heliotropic stretch mirror the stillness and intensity inherent in Yoga at Cindy's challenging sessions. Skilled yogis guide groups through hot-yoga classes, sweating out toxins and loose change caught in pores in the 90-degree rooms. Practitioners of all skill levels bend their way through a variety of poses in the 60-, 75-, and 90-minute sessions as the heat helps to keep muscles malleable, improve blood flow, and promote detoxification. Classes include heated Vinyasa-flow that focuses on the synchronization of breath and Yin Yang Yoga, which consists of slower movements. In between classes, the studio is cleaned daily, and deep cleaned every other week to avoid the notoriously judgmental eye of the full and half moons.
Han Yoga has created its own wholly unique approach to yoga. With a basis in meditative hatha yoga, its founder Jonathan Han combined eight different practices, the result of which is an inviting routine he named HanChickitsa, suitable for practitioners of all ages and experience levels. The studio's instructors also lead a variety of classes in classic hatha, therapeutic yoga, and high-octane Vinyasa flow, as well as teacher training.
Yoga is a personalized practice, and the instructors at bYs Life Yoga Studio cater to the needs of virtually all their visitors by offering classes specifically tailored to the skill levels of beginners as well as more experienced students. Whether visitors are looking for a physical practice that alleviates stressful thoughts or builds muscle tone, the schedule accommodates their needs. Introductory lessons teach newcomers how to focus on their alignment and breathing as the instructors provide individual attention and feedback. For a more invigorating practice, the studio offers faster-paced, energetically flowing Vinyasa-based classes as well as sessions that use sustained stretches to develop core strength. Restorative yoga provides a different approach altogether, using gentle poses to promote relaxation and healing in students.
The instructors at Bikram Yoga Santa Clara take Bikram very, very seriously. During the run of their 90-minute sweat sessions, students cannot leave the room or speak, and they keep still between asanas. Cell phones and other external distractions stay outside. It's this intense focus, concentration, and pursuit of self-control that distinguish this style of yoga.?
As sweltering heat engulfs the room, instructors encourage students to explore the limits of their body and mind by guiding them through 26 postures and two breathing exercises. The poses are simple enough that even yoga initiates can perform them, but at a humid and challenging 105 degrees, the body begins to sweat almost immediately. As the class progresses, heart rates speed up and the flow of the poses demands every ounce of mental energy to maintain focus. Eventually, toxins flush out of the pores, tension stretches out of the muscles and ligaments, and the heat begins to enable practitioners to perform deeper movements with a diminished risk of injury.
Bikram Yoga Santa Clara has onsite showers for a postworkout cooldown. Students are encouraged to bring plenty of water, a mat, and a towel.
