Classes at Dahn Yoga integrate the ancient Korean practice of Sun Do along with the latest findings in neuroscience and behavioral studies to help students boost their overall health and well-being. In each yoga class, a passionate and experienced guru first limbers up yogis with 10–15 minutes of warm-up exercises. Pupils are then chaperoned through 30–45 minutes of stretches, strengthening postures, and meditation exercises, all while clearing cluttered minds and learning to master breath control like a black-belt sousaphonist. After 10 minutes of cooldown exercises, students and teachers mingle to quaff an aromatic cup of tea. Instructors regularly assess students’ strengths and weaknesses, recommending home exercises to complement in-class practices. Dahn Yoga also offers tai chi, meditation, vibration, intestinal exercise, and other special classes based on location.

The six reformers and two trapezes at A Body in Balance Pilates Studio are just the beginning of the studio?s arsenal. There?s also a Wunda Chair?a box, essentially, with one side mounted on springs which the user presses down. An Avalon armchair features resistance bands for the hands and feet.
Students learn to use this equipment in private and group workouts with the studio?s certified instructors, who know all the ins and outs of reformer usage and Pilates principles. Regardless of the lesson format visitors choose, the workouts aim to build long lean muscle and improve balance for overall wellness or a party trick that involves a crystal pineapple and a tightrope.
Unlike fashion trends, one-hit-wonders, and tattoos that say “I voted for Nixon,” flat stomachs and well-defined muscles never go out of style. Fueled by Joseph Pilates's core-focused philosophy and signature workout regimen, the certified instructors at A Body in Balance Pilates Studio strive to keep abs and limbs toned, leading group classes, private sessions within a mirrored studio stocked with row after row of reformer machines and other equipment, and preparing new instructors for BASI Pilates certification. When not helping beginner- and advanced-level students increase their muscle definition and balance, the staff spends its time and money donating to national and local organizations such as Three Square, Positively Kids, Woman’s Club of Summerlin and local schools.
A flock of tired dancers traipse out of the studio, their ballet shoes brushing the floor in hushed footfalls as they head off to change. On their way, they pass members of the next class, dressed in yoga pants and sweatshirts. Clear-eyed and hungry, the new group stretches. Thumping hip-hop beats fill the room, and, with only a moment's hesitation, they launch into the first of many energetic routines that will fill that session. This is the way of life at The Beat Dance Academy, where owner Amanda Sizemore and her instructors live by a simple motto: dance is the only form of art “where the artist is also the masterpiece.”
To mold their artists into graceful and strong works of art, instructors teach classes in 15 dance and fitness styles that range from lyrical to Pilates. A combo class encourages children ages 2-5 to move with rhythm and timing, while adult jazz classes unlock the body isolations, leaping, and technical steps fortify the genre’s fundamentals. Meanwhile, aerial classes invite nimble bodies to balance and twirl on a suspended silk or hoop, using their muscles to stay off the ground without calling upon their latent powers of flight.
Stage Fit-Vegas's personal trainers, lifestyle coaches, and massage therapists all work together toward a common goal: to help their clients live healthier lives. Fitness experts lead both private and group exercise classes that often incorporate classic elements of dance, such as sweating. Lifestyle coaching, meanwhile, focuses on areas such as weight loss and stress management.
