MoonStruck Yogi isn't just a yoga studio; it's a sanctuary for individuals seeking community, empowerment, and an extra dose of flexibility and balance. Between its violet walls and hardwood floors, students of all levels gather for motivating classes filled with strength-building poses, deep-breathing exercises, and stretches as relaxing as a massage from a lavender sachet. To help yogis forge friendships, teachers encourage after-class mingling by initiating friendly conversations or brewing fresh chai tea.
Hot Yoga By The Sea is not your typical hot-yoga studio. Rather than offering traditional, 26-posture Bikram yoga, the studio allows its certified yoga instructors to base the types of classes offered on their individual specialties. Participants may choose from a variety of disciplines, including hot yoga, restorative hot yoga, hot hatha, and hot fusion yoga. The studio also eschews conventional heat sources in favor of infrared heat, which penetrates several inches into the body and is thought to enhance flexibility, reduce joint and muscle pain, and liquefy marshmallows hidden in pockets. The soothing thermal energy radiates off the hardwood floor and ceiling during each class, helping students glide into various poses.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We keep our class sizes held to a max number to ensure a personalized experience with plenty of attention and help. Our pride is providing variety, current training methods, creative fusion formats, and amazing trainers/instructors. We also foster a strong community through our Facebook page, and we encourage our clients to interact with each other outside of the gym. To that end, we create teams for obstacle courses and host social events while encouraging a cohesive and supportive environment. Creating relationships helps people stay motivated and connected.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
Yes, and its one of the things that sets instructors apart from one another. Our only rule is no explicit music. One of our trainers only plays Reggae in his boot-camps. It's one of the many things that makes our style at 360 unique.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
It depends on the class, as far as intensity is concerned. We offer a variety that ranges from high-intensity and muscle-exhausting formats to low-key, gentle formats. But each class is personal: students are noticed and called by name so they know they are important to us. We encourage modifications so that all fitness levels can participate while encouraging people to push beyond their comfort zones.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are the only facility on the west side of the island that offers functional training and triathlon clinics. Our classes are designed to create a weeks worth of total conditioning from our High Intensity formats, to moderate and no impact formats, Yoga, Pilates and Myofascial Release. We also offer 360 Strong only formats such as Ballet Boot Camp, Run Drill Class, Plyometric Training, Cardi Yoga, TRX Boot Camps and more. If someone comes to us for one week and attends four various classes, they will have been thoroughly trained from head to toe, working dynamically and holistically.
