Led by founder Sandy Adler, certified Anusara instructor, Freedom Yoga's instructors lead classes throughout the week for both beginners and more advanced students. Instructors tap into their experience, skill, and dedication to help students develop a safe and meaningful yoga practice, searching within themselves and their pupils to align spiritual centers, increase strength, and boost flexibility. Rather than using intense exercises or giant marionette strings to affect the mind and body from the outside, Anusara's poses originate from within the body, using deliberate breath and movement as a form of meditation to hone the mind while helping the body increase its strength and balance.
At Sweaty Ganesh Yoga studio, yoga serves as a transformative journey for every person who enters. All students, no matter their experience or skill level, are recognized for their current ability and empowered to test limitations of strength and flexibility. Along with beginners’ hot yoga classes, held throughout the week, the studio also holds classes for kids 6–12. Workshops help students perfect bow poses, backward bends, forward folds, and stretching postures. The fundamental approach teaches strength and flexibility while the postures test balance.
Length, grace, and a healthy body. These are the focuses of barre3 founder Sadie Lincoln. To achieve these results collectively, however, Sadie knew she needed to come up with a completely new routine. Working with yogis, professional dancers, doctors, and athletes, she created the barre3 system. It's a three-step sequence that consists of isometric holds, low-impact movements, and recovery stretching. This combination strengthens cores and aligns postures while sculpting long, lean muscles and burning calories. While upbeat music fills the studio, instructors lead small groups through a heart-racing sequence of yoga-inspired poses and pilates-based exercises. The ballet barre comes into use when striking muscle-building dance poses and stretches.
It's a system that has had proven results, which has spurred the successful growth of barre3 locations throughout the country. Today, fitness enthusiasts can find a barre3 studio in 16 states. An easy-to-follow routine, barre3 can also be performed at home with online workouts. These workouts are designed to fit busy schedules with routines that range from 10?60 minutes. All that's needed for online workouts is a barre3 core ball, weights, an exercise mat, and a sturdy, waist-high surface such as the top of Danny DeVito's head.
At Everyday People Yoga, students unroll their mats onto bamboo floors in a spacious and tranquil studio. Skilled instructors lead a variety of classes, ranging from Vinyasa and zen yoga to gentle yoga, meditation, and Ashtanga yoga. While the classes work to boost strength and flexibility, they can also help students build self-awareness with the body, both internally and externally.
With nearly 30 years of experience teaching gymnastics, owner and director Naja Rossoff and her staff of kid-minded professionals train children of all ages and skill levels. They start with tykes as young as 15 months old, letting them explore movement with the help of a parent or imaginary legal guardian. They keep developing skills in older kids with advanced classes and a trampoline-and-power-tumbling team. Otherwise, during circus-arts classes, they'll help students master the trapeze, tiptoe across tightropes, and learn of the ins and outs of circus performance.
Bounce Gymnastics also hosts open gyms so that kids can have their run of the facility's balance beams, nine trampolines, and padded floors. During birthday parties, the facility also opens up obstacle courses and organizes group games.
Kipsters Gymnastics, Dance & Fitness keeps all 11,000 square feet of its facility humming with activity. In Gym A, older kids and adults bounce on eight personal trampolines and tumble across gymnastic beams and mats, while younger gymnasts practice on the pintsized trampoline and rings in Gym B. Safety-minded instructors guide dancers of all abilities through ballet, jazz, and hip-hop classes amid two dance rooms. A toy-filled playroom keeps siblings entertained as their brothers and sisters participate in tumbling, cheer, gymnastics, and trampoline classes in the main gym. The playroom's two viewing windows also let parents keep an eye on all their kids at once, eliminating the need for stuffed animal informants.
Kipsters' year-round classes and spacious facility aren't just for kids; parents can hook into the center's free WiFi or enjoy an adult beginning ballet and hip-hop classes for students 15 years and older. As the ultimate gift to caretakers, Kipsters presents weekly Parents' Survival Nights, which free up four hours of uninterrupted date time on Friday nights.
