Nestled in a refurbished loft of a former bank building, Yoga Inspired offers a uniquely soothing space for connecting body to breath. Visitors walk under the building’s imposing entrance and white columns before making their way to an airy loft space painted in an aqua marine color that helps calm pet seals. The carpeted floor adds extra cushioning to yoga mats as natural light filters in through large windows.
The studio’s classes include classic Hatha and Vinyasa Flow and are clearly coded as challenging, beginner-friendly, or gentle. Yoga Inspired’s team of certified instructors leads sessions seven days a week, and in the spring, the studio offers outdoor classes on a 20-acre horse farm in Mullica Hill, New Jersey.
The instructors at Experience Yoga Studios further the studio's mission to unite mind and body through signature yoga coursework. Yoga is taught alongside Pilates and cycling classes and holistic-wellness-boosting massage services. Students attend Pilates and yoga classes in a peaceful practice space where natural light streams in the windows onto burnished wood floors. Beginner-level classes cater to newbies, and instructors can modify moves to help students to work through poses at their own pace. Cycling classes meet in their own maroon-colored studio, where they recreate tough road conditions by adding resistance to mimic hills, speed for sprints, and duck crossings to test each bike’s brakes. The studio’s seven-day schedule includes morning, afternoon, and evening classes.
Fitness Yoga Studios stretches out its arms to encourage everyone, at every experience level, to improve their strength and flexibility with yoga. Though it specializes in Vinyasa flow, a breath-focused style of yoga, Fitness Yoga Studios offers a wide variety of classes, while a convenient schedule aids in achieving and maintaining physical, spiritual, and emotional health for budding yogis. Unwind with the gentle yoga class, perfect for newbies or a jury that’s snuck out of its deliberation, or challenge the body's limits with the hot Vinyasa flow session, where guests flex in a room heated to about 90 degrees. Students can obtain newfound energy in the yoga renew class, which emphasizes proper alignment, or increase their range of motion in the yin/Vinyasa sessions. Novice contortionists can also try out the soothing, fluid motions of the classic Vinyasa experience and enjoy profound meditation once their Third Eyes have been safely pried open.
Each visit to Royal Fitness shakes up workout routines with rows of equipment, an indoor saltwater pool, and group classes focusing on aerobics or mind and body cultivation. The center houses cardio gear from Precor and Cybex, and guests can climb stair masters or paddle away from imaginary anacondas on rowing machines. A dedicated strength-training center tones muscle groups with free weights, kettlebells and Nautilus machines, which can be used for self-prescribed workout routines or under the guidance of personal trainers. Trainers also lead more than 100 fitness classes each week emphasizing conditioning or a unification of the mind and body with classes such as tai chi. Additionally, the onsite youth center keeps an eye on tots while parents exercise or unwind with the help of massage therapy.
The enthusiastic instructors at Live in Joy strive to nurture the mind, body, and spirit of their clients through a bevy of yoga classes. Yogis spanning the flexibility spectrum can enjoy a variety of 60- to 90-minute stretch sessions designed for all ability levels. Teach an old recliner new tricks in a gentle chair yoga class, where seated asanas encourage increased mobility, flexibility, and relaxation, perfect for students who are recovering from an injury or seeking relief from awkward water cooler workouts at the office. Rigorous Vinyasa practices take students from one flowing pose to the next, pausing briefly in certain poses to help stretchers settle into deeper alignment. Instructors of yin yoga command downward facing dogs to "stay" in certain floor postures for up to five minutes to balance organ function, restore resiliency in the body's muscles and joints, and break the compulsion to mark yogis standing in tree pose.
