At Sunstone Yoga, students radiate calm and self-awareness as they practice ancient poses designed to stretch, strengthen, and purify the body. Instructors complete 500 hours of training in yogic techniques, teaching, and physiology before leading classes, so they can hand out researched, tested tips on safety and alignment. Most classes come in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute varieties and focus on energy or restorative relaxation. A two-class introductory series welcomes beginners with basic standing poses, and the popular fire series explores up to 34 poses in a 99-degree room that loosens muscles to facilitate deeper stretches as it ousts toxins. Filled with soothing music and 90-degree temperatures, the water series cultivates more serenity than getting a massage from a singing whale.
The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas, a cause-driven organization dedicated to promoting healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility, helps active families forge fit physiques and attain balanced lifestyles with wellness classes, nutrition programs, and trained staff within a positive community atmosphere. The Y offers hundreds of group exercise classes to induce heart-pumping fitness through yoga poses, Pilates, and Zumba dance moves, and 10 outdoor pools and eight indoor pools at select locations allow for low-impact workouts, casual lap swimming, family swimming, and intense Marco Polo matches. Personalized PFP teaches personal-training exercises to those averse to group fitness routines, MEND fights childhood obesity through lessons in nutrition and exercise for children and their families, and YMCA Diabetes Prevention help those at risk maintain healthy lifestyles and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Parents can workout in peace with complimentary drop-in childcare at several branches, and family programs get relatives sweating together through a range of fun, pressure-free activities, alleviating the awkwardness of father-daughter dance lessons or mother-son paintball tourneys. Additional fees may apply for certain YMCA programs.

When Yogi Kids founder Liza Doll became a mother of three girls within 18 months, she realized that her new position as a full-time mom wouldn’t allow her to continue working as an elementary-school teacher. She never lost her passion for teaching, however, so she took up every part-time gig she could find, including tutoring, leading Sunday-school classes, and working in preschool physical education. As her kids got older, she found that they began to take an interest in one of her personal passions—yoga. A new idea sprang into her head: she would open a studio where she could combine her love of teaching kids with her love of yoga, facilitating a place where tots could be active while learning how to be calm and self-reflective. Now, along with her cadre of dedicated instructors, "Miss Liza" teaches young'uns to be yogis, offering classes ranging from game-filled preschool sessions to more advanced preteen lessons for kids up to 13 in a non-competitive atmosphere with small student-to-instructor ratios.
To meet the demands of moms and dads, Doll and her team now offer more than 40 adult classes a week, including beginners' yoga, more advanced power yoga, Zumba, and total-body fitness.
