Hot Yoga Tacoma, which is celebrating its 11th year of serving the Tacoma yoga community, features certified instructors leading students with all levels of experience. Hot yoga takes place in the warm confines of a heated room, as movements stimulate the endocrine, nervous, immune, and cardiovascular systems and eliminate toxins by means of sweating. Participants can nurture calm inner spirits while detoxifying as atmospheric warmth soothes joints and muscles and helps to prevent injury and relieve chronic pain. Their studio space offers cooler, more comfortable parts of the room for beginners who prefer to start off slowly, and hosts a variety of time-slots for classes seven days a week. Students gain a sense of camaraderie as they stretch together and sweat together. After classes, guests may freshen up in the studio's large private showers.
Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.

Back and Body Pilates Studio is helmed by accomplished instructor Mary Kim-Garrity and supported by a staff of Pilates Institute–educated trainers, who nudge students in the direction of galvanized cores, stretched-out flexibility, and ousted aches and pains. During private classes, you'll glean foundational knowledge from the masters on postures and movements. The group sessions are designed with small-class dynamics in mind, allowing participants to reap the motivating benefits of peer fitness while still receiving individual attention and tailored workouts from the teacher. Pick a package of both private and group sessions, or surprise your body with more personal attention by choosing to concentrate on privatized Pilates—either way, bodies will find themselves more supple, more self-aware, and less inclined to hug bears.
The 18 holes of Widow’s Walk tiptoe through undisturbed wetlands and sand dunes along the land's natural contours. Wind from the Atlantic Ocean whips onto the course, necessitating expert club selection and straight shots to avoid the bunkers and roughs that dot the course. The links-type course garners consistent praise from golfing publications, accommodating newbies, and pro swingers alike, with four teeing areas, a par of 72, and a 13th-hole ghost who offers stroke-shaving secrets. Widow’s Walk only irrigates about 30 acres of turf and became a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 2002, establishing avian nesting-box programs and habitats for other animals. Like your uncle's tuba recital, Widow's Walk requires proper attire.
