Three Trees Yoga's RYT-certified instructors enlighten new and seasoned stretchers with a variety of yoga styles in an effort to foster a community of mental and physical health. The serene studio's schedule is filled with a range of classes devised to relieve stress, increase strength, improve circulation and weight management, and honor the sun with a 21-watergun salute. Beginner Yoga: Level I unveils correct breathing methods, physical alignment, and classic asanas (postures). The gentle yoga class encourages a calmer form of fitness, emphasizing balance and deliberate lung maneuvers that can later be applied to blowing up balloons in the shape of Harrison Ford. Beginners and intermediates can sweat side by side in the mixed-level yoga class, which introduces exercise modifications to yogis seeking more or less challenge.
Bally Total Fitness enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day guest pass includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, Step Fitness, and High-Impact Hopscotch (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts a bulk-building army of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room.
