For Turkan Aydogmus, yoga and dance are much more than exercises—they're a way of life. She founded Samadhi Yoga & Dance to share this belief with others in hopes they would experience the enlightenment, inner peace, and passion that the art forms sparked in her. Along with her team of instructors, Turkan conducts a wide range of classes that incorporate the physical, emotional, and spiritual. This includes kundalini yoga, a consciousness-raising form of yoga that focuses on specific mental or physical issues; tribal fusion belly dance, a communal form of the serpentine dance style; and yogalates, a blend of yoga and Pilates performed on mats and optionally poured into an espresso beverage.
The instructors at FiTMiX Yoga & Latin Fitness Studio speak both English and Spanish, but they focus all of their classes on the universal language of fun. They lead energetic yoga classes, sustaining poses to help students develop strength and flexibility. They incinerate calories with high-energy Zumba workouts fueled by contagious Latin rhythms. They also teach aerial silks classes, which tone the upper body and the core muscles with exciting, gravity-defying routines. To keep students sufficiently energized, they even provide healthy snacks for people and low-calorie gasoline for robots.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. Adele Fridman, founder of MetaBody, created a real-life version of that ticket with her MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
Dance shouldn?t be formulaic. That?s why at Studio Tropa, owner Jerry Maese leads a dynamic, multi-cultural team of dance instructors that help students build better bodies. Six days a week students rock and rollick to sultry Tropa international sessions and the Latin-inspired grooves of Zumba classes. Instructors also get pulses racing with Tropa funk, their self-devised take on hip-hop. Students are encouraged to bring water, wear comfortable clothing, and sport athletic shoes that have good arch support and aren?t covered in Vaseline. Studio Tropa was recently selected to be a part of a promotional video release in conjunction with the release of the film, The Great Gatsby and was also part of the Galleria Mall flashmob for the release of the Zumba Rush Xbox Kinect video game.
Have Fun Feel Good's certified Zumba instructor Shelia Harris calls her class "happy hour,” and rightly so: each high-energy session gets people shaking their booties and feeling more giddy than if they'd had a few after-work martinis. Shelia also leads 2-mile walks through Bear Creek Park to keep fitness seekers on track and motivated.
