The instructors at Bikram Yoga Green Valley know that, in every active life, a little sweat must fall. From the confines of their super-heated studio, they help students boost energy, increase circulation, and master physical control with the detoxifying poses of Bikram Choudhury's 26 hatha yoga postures and two breathing exercises. They also stay sharp, continuing their training and education long after they complete their 600-hour Bikram Yoga Teachers Training course. This dedication to well-being is also reflected in the studio itself. There, students can relax with post-class showers, untangle knotted muscles with the help of an on-site massage therapist, and peruse the boutique for gear by Shakti, Bellissima, Asana, and more. Their tireless efforts helped build the type of yoga community idealized by the founder of their discipline; in 2009, Bikram Choudhury himself visited the studio to lead classes in his iconic postures and sign copies of his book.
The fitness instructors, personal trainers, and nutritionists at ClubSport wield the foundations of total-body wellness: detailed knowledge and cutting-edge equipment. Group classes such as cardio kickboxing, cycling, and circuit training showcase routines for all fitness levels, seven days a week. Personal-training sessions, meanwhile, bring help exercisers develop their own fitness plans and face down the imaginary knight that guards every piece of weight-training equipment.
ClubSport also transforms bodies outside the fitness studio and weight room. A self-described resort-style aquatic center features several lap and exercise pools where swimmers can fine-tune their breaststrokes and favorite shark calls. At an on-site spa, massage therapists ease muscle tension with modalities ranging from hot stone and prenatal to trigger point and reflexology.
The certified instructors at Bodies By Pilates elongate their flexible embrace to the Las Vegas area, inviting seekers of health to firm their cores with the Pilates conditioning method. Therein, a fortifying blend of stretches, resistance machines, and controlled breathing work together to strengthen lung capacity, circulation, coordination, spinal flexion and extension, and build muscle in the back and the abdomen. The reformer, a sturdy wooden frame with a user-friendly system of pulleys, ropes, springs, and a sliding platform, is the cornerstone of Pilates equipment and most bodybuilding lobbyists. The Reformer Trio class will teach you and two classmates a variety of flexing and stretching exercises on the machine. All the while, Bodies By Pilates features a comforting and calm atmosphere, its spacious environment festooned with enormous, luminous windows and the latest equipment from Balanced Body.
Sue Harragan and Tawnya Christian didn't take their first ballet barre workout class together, but they had the same immediate affinity for the workout's precise movements and body-sculpting potential. Nowadays, they work together to spread the good word of the addictive workout at their Las Vegas studio, thebodybar(re). While their eclectic course catalogue includes TRX and bootcamp sessions, their core classes are all ballet-barre based. They mix muscle-building and core-toning with cardio and stretching for a complete workout that centers around the ballet bar. Some classes incorporate weights and adrenalin-boosting beats, and one even eschews the barre altogether in favor of a Pilates-style workout.
Per its name, barre3's workouts?which have been featured in Self, Marie Claire, and Women's Health?take place at the ballet barre, and consist of three phases: aligning and strengthening exercises, low-impact cardio routines, and a lengthening stretch session. The fusion workouts draw inspiration from Pilates, yoga, and ballet, and are spurred on by an upbeat soundtrack, which motivates participants to gracefully groove. For added convenience, the studio's online classes also let enthusiasts re-create the posture-improving workouts at home or in Swan Lake.
