The Studio: Pilates, Yoga, Spinning understands that when it comes to working out, everyone has different goals. No matter what a client's individual goals, however, one aspect of fitness remains universal?people want to feel comfortable and relaxed. With that in mind, The Studio has created a space that doesn't feel like a traditional gym, instead helping clients hone their physiques within an earth-toned environment, bedecked with wood floors and calming colors. Exercisers can pick and choose from Pilates, yoga, Spinning and TRX Suspension Training classes to boost their fitness.
Yoga Alliance, one of the yoga community’s larger training facilities, awards its E-RYT 500 certification to students who have completed at least 500 hours of training and 2,000 hours of teaching at a registered yoga school. Laurie Mort is one such student. Now, Laurie shares this wealth of knowledge and experience with students at her studio, Inner Strength Yoga & Healing Center. And Laurie’s business is aptly named. After a car accident in 1972 that nearly took her life, Laurie began on a path of healing that included yoga and meditation as a way of keeping her from spending her life in a wheel chair. That journey certainly took inner strength, and is the inspiration for her compassionate teaching style.
At her studio, she and her staff of experienced yoga instructors—two of which are fellow E-RYT 500 certified instructors—predominately practice the poses and breathing exercises of hatha yoga. Nearly all of their classes are open to beginners and experts alike, including flow yoga, restorative yoga, and ThaiSen, which uses stretching and self-applied acupressure kneads to boost energy. For further wellness, the center also offers healing services such as reiki sessions and hosts workshops and events including group psychic readings.
The Yoga Body Oceanside has offered pupils at every stage of suppleness a welcoming and serene educational environment for more than a decade. Check the studio's class schedule, whose flexible nature makes it a role model for students, and drop in to any five of the studio's 90-minute limb-limbering sessions, from beginning yoga to power yoga to balanced flow. A gentle yoga class (offered at 8 a.m. on Wednesday) introduces students to low-impact postures, and an early-morning dawn patrol class (offered at 5:30 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) allows students to start their day bendily before entering the stiff, rigid environment of corporate America, with its stodgy executives and rigor mortised receptionists. Bring a towel, mat, and water to your yoga classes to avoid the awkwardness of trying to steal a classmate’s.
Located in Brickhouse Cardio Club in Oceanside, Yoga at Brickhouse offers yoga classes seven days a week for all skill levels. The updated studio features curtains to softly filter light and provide more privacy as well as candlelight that soothes and relaxes. Though people come to Yoga at Brickhouse for soothing yoga or heart-pumping workouts, they stay for the irresistible international rhythms. Zumba tends to have that effect, ensnaring exercisers with its Latin choreography and dance-party vibe. The floors pulse with 11 Zumba sessions every week, along with energetic Brickhouse Burn toning and sculpting classes and invigorating yoga sessions. The club also hosts Bokwa sessions, embracing the new workout system that finds students tracing the shapes of numbers and letters during dance-like sessions set to booty-shaking beats.
Since its inception, Brickhouse has blossomed into a franchise, expanding into 25 locations with new sites recently opened in the United Kingdom, where it hopes to supplant aerobic chimney sweeping. No matter the location, each club hosts its signature workouts in pared-down studios with the franchise?s familiar electric-blue and neon-green walls surrounding a stage.
