At each of Oxygen Yoga & Fitness? locations, trained fitness instructors guide students through a seven-day schedule packed with yoga, boot camp, meditation, and TRX suspension training classes. The modern studios come equipped with infrared heated yoga rooms where students strengthen muscles during yoga poses as the specialized light aims to improve their skin tone and erase their cellulite. During TRX suspension training sessions, exercisers are suspended in the air by belts attached to the ceiling and use their own body weight to fight gravity. The classes are designed for all fitness levels and aim to build long, lean muscles and give guests a place to practice their levitation skills. The studio also schedules kids' yoga sessions designed to increase children?s confidence and provide full-body workouts.

At Gracie Barra Kamloops, students learn the art of the underdog: brazilian jiu-jitsu. This martial-arts discipline capitalizes on the concept of leverage to negate any advantage of size or strength. Its grappling techniques therefore enable a person to subdue a much-larger opponent using a repertoire of joint locks and chokeholds. The instructors—two of whom are certified black belts—demonstrate their ground-fighting techniques during classes for all ages. These sessions hone self-defence moves while promoting overall fitness, much like kicking the panel of your StairMaster between each step.

Kees Tae Kwon Do's stylized logo, depicting a man driving his leg through a circle, is actually based on a photograph of Grandmaster Kee Ha performing a flying split kick. The graceful move?which as a logo represents the drive to aim for goals beyond immediate objectives?exemplifies the philosophies and techniques that Ha and his masters and instructors teach to students in a range of tae kwon do classes for children and adults. Teachers guide students through the mentally and physically demanding journey from white to black belt, introducing skills that discipline their bodies and prepare them to fend off assailants or demolish their front doors if they forget the keys. They also instruct students in other martial-arts styles, such as kick-boxing.

In Classic Yoga mythology, the Tandava is "the dance of life." It's a fitting namesake for Tandava Yoga. While yoga isn't mythical, it's as rooted in age-old traditions as many myths; while yoga isn't dance, it's as flowing and expressive as many dances?at least the way it's practiced in the studio's classes. The eclectic mix of classes ranges from gentle yoga and meditation sessions to a core-strengthening workout infused with cardio. Regardless of the specific class, though, the instructors hew to a holistic philosophy, one that encourages conscious breathing, mindfulness, and feeling present.
