In the Eastern philosophy to which Wisdom Yoga Wellness adheres, “in good health” doesn't merely mean “not sick”; it means that your chakras, or energy flows, are constantly in balance. According to this belief system, one way to achieve this balance is through Thai yoga therapy, which opens the body's chakras for harmonization. The center's certified instructors not only help their students achieve this harmonious state but also encourage them to burn calories during vigorous Vinyasa classes. Unlike libraries with coin-operated atlases, the instructors are generous with their knowledge; they also lead yoga teacher trainings for aspiring instructors and workshops that allow students to explore different yoga styles.
Christen and Preston Scott were each attracted to yoga for different reasons: Preston was looking to heal after years of aggressive bodybuilding while Christen was seeking peace of mind. They both found what they were looking for during their first Baptiste Power Vinyasa class, and have been sharing their passion with others ever since. Their studio, The Power Yoga Tribe, introduces students to Baptiste brand of yoga through classes tailored to all skill levels, with each session emphasizing attention to breath and a detailed progression of poses.

Certified personal trainer Jared Lopez and his team of instructors work to tone muscles and fire up metabolisms for all fitness levels during their boot-camp program that incorporates plyometrics, kickboxing, functional strength training, and calisthenics to get healthy and safe results.

They change up their routines on a daily basis to prevent clients and their muscles from becoming bored. To cultivate a supportive environment, the instructors motivate students without yelling at them and post success stories of clients who have lost inches and weight.
All of the instructors at Legacy Mixed Martial Arts do indeed take on a legacy. They are taught by founder Sensei Cameron to preserve his style of training, passing it on to their students in an undiluted form—a practice that is less possible at chain martial-arts schools.
This method ensures a high level of training, regardless of the martial-arts style. Kids' karate classes, for example, mix the strikes of tae kwon do with kickboxing and submission grappling, and MMA sessions for adults include full-contact drills that incorporate muay thai and jujitsu techniques. Instructors also lead aikido and fitness-kickboxing lessons. Though the techniques of each class differ, the coaches strive to carry over core values such as respect and self-discipline.
