Large windows let in as much natural light as possible, making the Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Center an ideal environment for the transformative practice of yoga. In Vinyasa Flow sessions and beginners' hatha classes, students follow a systematic progression of breathing and asanas—or postures—designed to strengthen muscles and align spines. The goal is to help clients maintain a healthy mind and body to lead a happier life.
The teachers follow the philosophies of Swami Rama, whose beliefs can be summarized in one inspirational quote: "Do your duties skillfully, selflessly, and grease them with love." Their work demonstrates their adherence to that teaching: instructors with decades of combined experience use their classes at this nonprofit studio to reach out to all sorts of yoga practitioners, from athletes to to people interested in mindfulness exercises to adults with physical challenges.
At FLO CrossFit, their vision combines martial arts with the cardio and endurance of fitness. Multiple black-belt-holding and championship-winning instructors pour more than 100 combined years of experience into molding students of all skill levels into accomplished martial artists. The 8,500 sq. ft. facility contains a wide variety of state of the art equipment, such as an elevated boxing ring, collegiate wrestling mat, tatami area, and weight machines. They also offer free weights, and a cardio area with elliptical, treadmills, and bikes.
Boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, krav maga, mixed martial arts, and muay thai kickboxing are just a few of the classes on offer; FLO encourages students to combine aspects of multiple styles to create a formidably balanced skill set. Memberships grant users unlimited access to the gym and group classes, and private lesson and personal training packages customize regimens with one-on-one attention.
