Inside Amherst Yoga’s spacious, sunny studio, yoga students exercise mind and body with a variety of yoga classes. But it’s more than just yoga at this studio: clients can also partake in personal training, Zumba, and neuromuscular stretching. Wellness services are also available, including cardiovascular training and massage therapy.
Voted 2011 Best Yoga Studio in Nashua by readers of Hippo, NH Power Yoga earns acclaim by healing and strengthening students during sessions of Baptiste Power Vinyasa, a heat-based, flowing style of yoga. Expert body-benders lead students through challenging poses in a heated room, aiming to send toxins out of bodies on wild rapids of sweat. Each class, 60–90 minutes, accommodates students of all yoga skill levels and breeds, from nimble novice to flex expert. Through practice, students will build strength, gain flexibility, and discover a calmness of the kind rarely seen outside of the part before a horror movie gets scary.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
