Q&A with Donna Mezzina, Yoga Solace Club Director
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We offer a variety of class levels and yoga styles for our students.
You can start out at your appropriate level and move on to more challenging classes or different styles. Our instructors frequently attend additional training and apply their knowledge of new techniques to their classes. We also offer workshops, series and events.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
We utilize a variety of music to establish the proper tone for the class.
Many of our teachers also read a daily inspirational quote to their students.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Our vision is to offer a full yoga studio at a lower cost that includes amenities such as a sauna, a steam room, and a juice bar, as well as gym access and child care.
Massages are also available in our adjacent spa.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We hope to bring affordable yoga to the community in a more serious and dedicated fashion.
When introduced to yoga in this way, you will grow in your practice and appreciate its benefits.
Pilates helped Regina Poblete not only get in shape after having a child, but also fight off postpartum depression by establishing a healthful physical routine. She wanted to share the exercise with others, so she sought certification ins Stott Pilates, a modernly modified form of the turn-of-the-century exercise. Having completed the intense requirements, she began teaching for Rx Pilates.
Regina teaches both classic mat and reformer classes. On the mat, she observes the central principles of the Stott method, keeping the rib cage, pelvis, scapula, and cervical spine in alignment while letting the breath flow. In class, she guides students in the use of some exercise-enhancing props, such as resistance bands and objects that can be reimagined as funny hats. The Stott reformer also boasts modifications that enhance the exercise form’s five alignment principles while students sit, kneel, and lay on its mobile platform.
Twin brothers and tae kwon do grandmasters Simon and James Kim have more than a birthday in common: both are seventh-dan black belts, have performed in movies and on ABC’s Wide World of Sports, and trained with the legendary ninth-dan black belt Tiger Kim starting at the age of 3. Today, at Tiger Twins Tae Kwon Do Academy, they lead tae kwon do programs for children and adults, and also offer classes in yoga and Zumba. Though their classes impart expert technical knowledge, they also foster intangible character traits, such as honesty, integrity, respect, and self-discipline.
After years spent developing her personal exercise routines, Lisa Fox opened her own boutique fitness studio in 1999. There, she has forged an environment in which women of all makes and models can improve their image, specifically through Lisa’s self-created Fox Method of exercise. Fusing principles of Barre, yoga, Pilates, core conditioning, and cardio training, Lisa’s approach offers a challenging, full-body workout—and one that packs myriad potential benefits. Lisa and her fellow instructors lead classes every day of the week, with both morning and evening sessions anchoring the studio’s flexible schedule.
