The proud and pliable recipient of a yoga mat's worth of accolades, Amazing Yoga spreads its limber arms to embrace all practitioners, welcoming stretching sophomores and savants alike. Talented, passionate instructors lead an array of classes over a flexible schedule at each of Amazing Yoga's four studios. Clients can frequent the studio of their choice and stack their chakras in classes such as the Basics, a beginner's power-yoga class that emphasizes foundation postures, helping practitioners build up a strong foundation to withstand floods, high winds, and tickling attacks. Amazing Yoga recommends bringing your own water bottle and a mat to classes, though rental mats are available for $2 per class.
Stylists at Dolce' Vita Salon & Spa know that living the sweet life isn't just about being rich; it's about feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin. So they try to help their clients retain sharper images with professional haircuts, color, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments that make hair sleeker and enable it to fit back into its prom hat. Their efforts haven’t gone unnoticed—clients voted Dolce' Vita the best salon in Wexford in Trib Total Media’s 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards. To keep the good vibes flowing below the shoulders, the spa also offers spa services that include Swedish or deep-tissue massage, custom facials, and Minx Nails mani-pedis.
Rather than letting guests loose on intimidating weights and boring exercise machines, You Rock Fitness Wexford brings exercisers together in an energizing array of intimate group fitness classes and personal-training sessions. Instructors Amy, Michelle, and Emily take their cues from students as they cultivate a schedule of classes with intense workouts like POUND and R.I.P.P.E.D. Both classes are uniquely different except for the fact that they put bodies through an grueling workout that can burn up to 1000 calories in just under an hour.
Situated in what was once an electronics store, the space's formerly drab interior has taken on an electrifying new look, brimming with bright purples and lime greens that complement gleaming hardwood floors. A wavy mirror shoots back students' sweat-streaked reflections in the main studio as children play within eye range in the Kidz Room—designed and painted by the instructors' daughters, this child-friendly zone keeps kids entertained during their parents' workouts with games, puzzles, and Cabbage Patch drill instructors.
Bodytech Health & Fitness fine-tunes forms with a plethora of equipment and high-energy classes. Enjoy social sweating with unlimited access to group workouts such as Pilates, which stretches and strengthens bodies through an amalgamation of targeted exercises and focused breathing. Spinning burns fat and tones the lower body through a low-impact cycle ride set to tunes, and bootcamp serves up an ever-changing regimen of exercises such as kickboxing, jogging, and ab work.
Laser devices fill every loop in Premier Laser Spa of Pittsburgh’s tool belt. The certified laser technicians reach for them during noninvasive hair-removal sessions, where they unholster the one best suited to an individual's skin tone. With the help of accompanying cooling systems, each laser banishes unwanted follicles while keeping skin from overheating. Their laser prowess extends to facial rejuvenation as well, and the techs also stimulate collagen production, improving texture and tone with the help of skin-tightening treatments.
The experienced instructors at Stray Dog Yoga Studio shepherd body benders through a series of Vinyasa movements executed in a heated room. Pupils stretch and sweat their way through the flow, which unites movement with breath the way a magnet unites Dad's finger paintings with the refrigerator door. Each class challenges partakers to push their bodies, find the limits of their flexibility, and discover a sense of peace within themselves. Stretching students of all levels can participate, as modifications for difficult poses allow beginners to follow along and work toward improvement.
