In conjunction with the yoga studio, The Floating Lotus Day Spa aims to beautify and relax clients using all-natural therapies, including body wraps, organic facials, waxing services, and massages. Wielding Éminence Organics skincare products, aestheticians deep cleanse faces using biodynamic ingredients designed to naturally hydrate and rejuvenate faces. Within the day spa's private rooms, therapists use methods such as Thai massage and foot-focused reflexology, as well as warmed lava stones, to melt away any knots or stale marshmallows hiding beneath the skin.
Inside Barefoot Studio's spacious, 4,000-square-foot facility, instructors guide students through a variety of yoga classes according to experience levels in two separate practice spaces. The studio’s team of studied yoga instructors lead students through a seven-day schedule of morning and evening 90-minute stretch sessions, including a beginners' class to acquaint newbies with the foundational postures and breathing exercises necessary for more advanced classes. Veterans gather for Hot Fusion Yoga classes in a 92- to 95-degree room, letting the heat maximize their flexibility and appreciation for January. Hatha and Vinyasa classes are also available. Yin Yoga instructors help students target the deep connective tissues surrounding the joints and the muscles around the hips, pelvis, and lower back by holding postures for 3–10 minutes at a time. Though the studio hosts educational workshops and special events, this Groupon is only valid for 90-minute yoga classes.
CrossFit Little Rock?s certified trainers have a 5,000-square-foot facility at their disposal, but they don't try to fill all that space with exercise machines that focus on one muscle at a time. Instead, they lead beginner and advanced classes that emphasize functional fitness, using all that space for exercises inspired by gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, and rowing. The specific workouts change all the time, but they may include everything from swinging kettlebells to climbing ropes.
Arkansas Yoga Collective is where mat-users get centered and connect with their community. Atop joint-friendly cork flooring, students practice hatha yoga poses that perfectly blend posture work, breath work, and meditation into one balanced, revitalizing workout. Yoga classes are held nine times a day, seven days a week, and students can enhance their yoga practice in martial arts and yoga-martial arts fusion classes. But the good vibes don't stop flowing once clients finish their final asana?the facility also boasts massage services to soothe overworked muscles, a shop that sells everything from mats to organic body products, and a cafe where yogis can go to meet other like-minded exercisers or use in-class breathing techniques to cool a hot latte.
At Fitness 4 U of Little Rock, certified personal trainers Marlon Shelton and Dorian Humphrey lead classes of like-minded students through invigorating fitness boot camps, and guide gym members through exercises on treadmills, heavy bags, freeweights, and machines.

Energetic trainers motivate students to tone sinews and amp up endurance in semiprivate yoga, Pilates, and fitness sessions atop IM=X Pilates' sleek hardwood floors. The studio's flexible schedule arms students with an arsenal of sweat sessions seven days a week. Lax muscles morph into more sculpted sinews during an IM=X Basic class as students tone hips, chisel abs, and buff up funny bones with intensive exercises on the studio's refined Pilates reformer, the Xercizer. Yogis flow through Vinyasa postures full-force in IM=X Yoga, which cultivates balance and coordination and tempers mental tension. Clients can opt to extend limbs into graceful pliés and elegant arabesques in the IM=X bar program, which lengthens limbs and fortifies lower-body strength. Alternatively, a fast-paced spin class sweeps swiftly pedaling fitness-philes on a stationary cycling journey to surge circulation, boost endurance, and pick up stationary tricycles from daycare.
