Studio Craze's certified staff mentor students as they balance, bounce, and dance their way through eight types of group fitness classes designed to fortify cores and boost agility. Ball Balance pupils lean and squat against stability balls, bolstering balance and flexibility, and exercisers in Ballet Barre combine the intensity of interval training with muscle-shaping technique, working out by bobbing on mats and ballet barres as they carefully intone French conjunctive verbs.

There’s more to yoga than just asanas (poses) and pranayama (breathing)—at Navarre Living Yoga, the instructors encourage students to live their whole lives consciously. Their philosophy blends yoga, meditation, and contemplation, with one class specifically designed to prepare the client for 10 minutes of meditation. They welcome students of all ages and body types, unlike studios that only accept the body of a Model T. Many of the teachers bring more than 500 hours of practice to the table, which lends them the skills to teach beginners’ yoga, Yin yoga, and hot yoga, among other types.
