Bikram Yoga Westside's 14 instructors all have athletic or artistic backgrounds, which they use to inform hot-yoga classes taught for the studio's students of all skill levels. During each 90-minute session, instructors guide the class through Bikram yoga's 26 poses in a heated studio kept toasty warm at 105 degrees to help detoxify, increase circulation, and improve flexibility. After class, patrons can wash away their sweat in the studio's men's and women's locker rooms, which are outfitted with showers, electronic lockers, and hair dryers. The studio provides towel and mat rentals for students who prefer to use theirs as tasteful home furnishings. For safety and purity, the studio also runs double-filtered water through its showers and sinks.
At Summerlin Yoga, teachers Martin Hinton, Liz Steers, Cristin Bartles, and Eddie Guerra boast certifications in yoga. They guide students through postures and breathing exercises in a room with brand new flooring, which helps to warm muscles and flush toxins from the body. Through regular practice of poses, students learn to stretch a host of muscles and ligaments in their bodies and reformat most of the microchips implanted in their brains. Students can partake in myriad types of classes, such as the physically demanding Vinyasa, the hot-room endurance of Tru Hot Pilates and Revitalize, or the cooler temperature alternative Yin Yoga Flow.

Though Fresh Mama?s smoothies can quench your thirst, these drinks aren?t just something to sip on. Rather, the smoothie bar specializes in four styles of smoothies designed to help visitors reenergize, build up their electrolytes, get a dose of protein, or improve their daily nutrition. The staff harnesses the power of fresh, raw ingredients, combining fruits with greens, herbs, coconut water, and Sunwarrior protein powder, which helps build muscles as effectively as doing sprints through a giant jello mold.
At Dahn Yoga, practitioners won't find classes in common styles such as Ashtanga yoga, Bikram yoga, or Hatha yoga. Instead, they'll discover the the studio's namesake yoga form, which was founded by Ilchi Lee based on his knowledge of the ancient Korean Sun Do practice. The form blends breathing exercises, core movements, and meditation with brain exercises and an emphasis on Ki, or the natural energy stored within the body's extensive system of padlocks. The results are multifaceted—devotees often gain clearer thought, more self-reflection, and a healthier lifestyle coupled with stronger core muscles and a leaner physique.
