As an adolescent, Beth Levine wrestled with body-image issues—a battle that turned dangerous when she developed bulimia. But today, Beth is not only a registered nurse, she’s also a healthy athlete, avid dancer, and owner of The Dance Treatment Rx. Here, she offers a healthy way to stay fit without the pressure of competition. Zumba, Pilates, and Bokwa classes naturally foster wellness in a fun, laid-back environment.
Kashmir Hands’ owner, Dina M. Giugliano, possesses an unending fascination with the abilities of the human body. She fosters her enchantment through three primary avenues: massage, yoga, and doula services, a Greek tradition that combines the duties of a pregnancy counselor with those of a midwife. Her thumbs relieve patrons’ tension and coax out toxins during therapeutic deep-tissue massage, a soothing avenue to injury recovery, particularly when paired with a gentle form of yoga. There are more gentle and more intense forms to choose from, as Giugliano offers 17 types of yoga classes, each developed for a certain age group, level of athletic ability, or species.
While exercise enthusiasts, celebrities, and athletes have practiced Joseph Pilates' unique style of controlled movements since the 1920s, it wasn’t until recently that studios such as The Pilates Experience brought the workout down from the mountain. After introducing guests to the specialized machines, including the Reformer, Tower, Cadillac, and ladder barrels, instructors lead exercises that use bodyweight as resistance. To help students perform the moves correctly, they cap the machine-based classes at six people and move from station to station handing out tips on proper alignment. Other classes include a Pilates-infused yoga class, heart-pumping indoor-cycling sessions, and muscle-toning total-body circuit training.
Inside The Physical Fitness Center, students face off against their doppelgängers, keeping tabs on their form in the wall-length mirrors that run to the ceiling from the hardwood flooring. A staff of fitness experts that includes certified yoga, Zumba, and Pilates instructors leads participants through classes that build cardiovascular health and build muscles. During Zumba classes, students move to the beat of lively international dance rhythms and the soulful sounds of an on-staff yodeler. Elsewhere, yoga students perfect their warrior poses while infusing muscles with an invigorating dose of oxygen during controlled breathing exercises. Two Pilates classes trot out options for guests who want to focus on form in pared-down mat classes, or students can work through a combination of yoga and ballet moves with the help of hand weights in Barre sessions.
