Tadasana Yoga Studio's 10 instructors tap into years of training and experience to lead enthusiastic yogis of all levels through heated group-exercise classes. Ninety-minute Bikram yoga classes encourage participants to unfurl across yoga mats through a sequence of 26 postures as tireless air ducts and domesticated dragons heat the space up to 105 degrees. Power Vinyasa classes in 60-, 75-, and 90-minute sessions reach 95-degree temperatures as Baron Baptiste–inspired exercises strengthen muscles and cores. Eighteen weekly yoga classes are held as early as 6:30 a.m. or as late as 6:45 p.m., allowing for heated workouts before breakfast or following afternoons spent painting still lifes of breakfast.
With backgrounds in dance, gymnastics, and other sports, the instructors at Range are familiar with the long-term benefits of healthy movement. From inside an intimate studio, they rely on Pilates and Gyrotonic programs to combat fitness woes and injuries alike, acquainting guests with an array of spring- and pulley-based machinery. They host group and private classes that adjust their plans to each student's needs. On the Gyrotonic tower, they guide bodies through exercises for mobility conducted in all three dimensions, unlike the one-dimensional sit-ups known as "naps." They also fortify core muscles with Pilates Reformers, chairs, and props. The elegant simplicity of their small studio reflects a no-frills devotion to the human form, as well as to the earth—the staff utilizes eco-friendly goods such as bamboo and organic-cotton towels and tea-tree-oil cleaning solutions.

Tiffany Crosswhite’s journey toward becoming a Pilates instructor began, oddly enough, at the Ice Capades, where the lights, music, and graceful glides inspired her to pursue a career as a professional ice skater. As this career progressed, she eventually became a coach for young skaters, constantly hunting for a form of exercise that would help them grow stronger without harming their developing bodies. Thanks to a gift certificate given to her by her mother, Tiffany discovered Pilates and quickly fell in love with the low-impact, powerful-results exercise. In fact, she was so head over heels that she opened her own studio.
Beneath a fun, globular chandelier, Tiffany infuses her Pilates routines with conditioning exercises drawn from her years of figure-skating training. She, along with her team of passionate instructors, help students tighten core muscles using mat exercises and the fleet of Pilates machines that line the walls, which include Reformers, Wunda Chairs, and bionic replicas of Joseph Pilates himself.
