At Simply Fit Astoria, exercisers move toward their health and fitness goals while surrounded by friends, supportive strangers, and trainers dedicated to helping them succeed. Here, classes?such as Zumba, Piloxing, and Spin?are as fun as they are challenging, often incorporating everything from Latin dance moves to colored strobe lights, or props such as exercise balls and weighted maracas. And, for gym goers looking to one-on-one attention, personal trainers are also on hand to lead individual or small group sessions that provide students with the extra help and encouragement they need.
Life Health & Fitness packs a single floor with endless aisles of strength and cardio equipment complemented by pristine locker facilities and expansive group fitness studios. During 15 different group fitness classes, including Zumba, Pilates, yoga, and indoor cycling, instructors whip bodies into shape in motivating, high-energy settings. Meanwhile, motivating coaches help guests slim physiques or build up muscle bulk during personal-training sessions. After sweating off inches from the waistline, guests can unwind or hone their Smokey Robinson impression in the private showers before drying off by way of locker-room towel service.
Yoga Studio 6 LIC's experienced instructors bend over backwards to demonstrate a variety of Eastern styles in a cozy setting, from gentle restorative sessions to rigorous yoga-core workouts. The studio's schedule affords ample opportunity to flex with the Vinyasa flow moderate class, where breath syncs up with flowing postures and a fleet of interstellar satellites, and the gentle restorative-yoga session, which clears the mind with easy-going poses. Stretchers can work up a sweat in the energetic yoga-core classes, intensify yogic routines with the physically demanding Jivamukti practice, or learn foundational poses in a yoga-basics session, designed to turn humans into pretzels and pretzels into M. Night Shyamalan's pretzels. Warm saffron walls, shining hardwood floors, and jewel-tone hangings make Yoga Studio 6 LIC a calming venue for stamina building and karmic cleansing.
The practiced benevolent benders and breathers at Mimi for Me Yoga open aspiring muscle warpers to a variety of classes, including yoga, Pilates, and dance. Explore the inner-workings of your bone box through the multifarious flowing movements and techniques of Vinyasa yoga, which stretches and balances the being, or feel free to tote along a tot for the Baby-Love Yoga class, wherein little ones can rest or crawl among their pliable parents.

If more expressive movement summons your limbs, Mimi for Me's variety of dance classes holds the key to unlocking your hips for unfettered gyration. Focus is placed on fitness rather than perfect technique, and styles range from Bhangra, flamenco, and tango to the empowering and entrancing art of belly dancing. Amid the welcoming vibe of the clean, spacious studio, Mimi for Me's experienced instructors dole out personal attention and close-fisted high-fives of support to students and pokey puppy passersby.
Originally invented as a yoga-like program for dancers, the Gyrotonic Expansion System is an elasticizing exercise modality that uses multidirectional and spherical movement to condition joints and increase overall flexibility. Trainees grab the cables on custom equipment such as the pulley tower combination unit, a machine that can be pulled, pushed, and yanked in more directions than a high-school romance. The undulating motions of Gyrotonic workouts provide many inherent perks, including stress relief and posture correction, as well as injury relief and recovery.
