Rebecca Wood and Ryan Deichert combine their passions for empowering fitness styles at a studio where students of all skill levels can learn self-defense or relaxation techniques during their workouts. Rebecca began teaching yoga in 1999, creating a signature alignment-based Iyengar-style yoga that she personally teaches to each instructor she employs. Instructors guide students through poses such as bends and inversions, incorporating posture-buoying props and instructional pop-up books when needed to relieve mental and physical tension. Ryan taps into more than 15 years of Brazilian jujitsu training to teach amateur martial artists of all sizes and fitness levels how to safely extricate themselves from dangerous situations or escape from overeager bear hugs.

Loveland Yoga Loft transforms rigid-limbed organ vessels into lithe movement machines with yoga classes taught in a variety of styles. Vinyasa, Anusara, and Ashtanga classes provide challenging flows for developing lean muscles, straightening postures, and readying chakras for marathon sessions of badminton. Within a supportive and small group setting of up to 10 students, seasoned yogis provide plenty of one-on-one attention to help correct techniques and encourage strategic breathing patterns. Classes are scheduled multiple times daily, with flexible hours to suit the demands of students and their busy agendas battling sentient chemistry textbooks.
The Lotus Room fosters a creative family atmosphere with inventive children's classes taught by energetic instructors and a spacious, naturally lit studio for private parties. Toddlers (ages 3–6) can frolic, pose, and sing pitch-perfect odes to bendiness in Kids Yoga Strong, which whimsically integrates storytelling, song, and games to increase flexibility and awareness. Instructors in the After School classes geared for older kids (ages 8–12) boost self-confidence by supportively encouraging young yogis to express their creativity through music, dance, and acrobatics, increasing body awareness more effectively than a life-sized holographic likeness. The Lotus Room caps all classes at 20 students to ensure individualized instruction and an accepting environment for meaningful conversations about existentialism.

Wendy O’ Lenic, of Wendy Fit, began her professional dance career in 1979 with a Vegas dance review. Over the years, her passion for movement evolved and found a new life in yoga. Her curriculum covers various disciplines including yoga, Pilates, and meditation. Within the earth-green walls of her studio, Wendy and her staff lead students through group classes, private and semiprivate personal training sessions, and specialty courses such as ballet core and kettlebell.
