At MOHO FIT‘s private training studio, you can spot homemakers and professional athletes alike undergoing the high-intensity exercises in boot-camp classes and personal-training sessions. Coaches guide clients of all abilities toward weight loss, improved muscle tone, and overall health through creative, high-intensity routines that may rely on free weights, plyometrics, and endurance exercises. They also stress the importance of proper nutrition, supplying students with recipes and meal plans that favor natural proteins over tasteless health foods such as rice cakes and low-fat air.
At Shanti Heart Yoga & Wellness, instructors guide students through power yoga, vinyasa flow, and an array of other yoga styles. The studio is equipped with far-infrared heaters, too, which means the team can warm the room for hot yoga classes or wintry days when the snow beasts come to life. Benefits of the yoga workouts include everything from increased flexibility to stronger cores. Exercisers who want to work their mental and spiritual sides can sign up for one of the studio's energy healing, meditation, or lifestyle-coaching sessions.
Sunder Kaur first discovered yoga on her path to fulfill a lifelong dream: to find her true self. Now, as a certified yoga instructor, she strives to nurture her students' spirits while incorporating the scientific understanding of the human body she gained from her degree in pharmacy. With a friendly demeanor, Sunder and her team of over 30 instructors create a welcoming community as they lead students of all ages and abilities through asanas and breathing exercises that increase strength, flexibility, and balance. They teach these techniques during a variety of classes, including children's, prenatal, and hot yoga. Outdoor classes are available at A Yoga Village's Sunken Gardens location, allowing students to melt away stress while enjoying the fresh air. To further enrich their students' lives, the staff leads specialized workshops that emphasize meditation or improving household communication with storytelling, song singing, and game playing. These dedicated instructors also push budding yogis along the same noble path down which they boldly trod during teacher-training courses.
Many of the yoga classes at Pure Yoga & Fitness are performed in temperatures that exceed 90 degrees. In addition to calling forth a little more sweat the usual, this heat has a hidden agenda; when combined with vinyasa poses, it helps increase muscle mobility and cleanse the body of toxins. Although hot yoga classes are the studio's specialty, they're not the only thing on the schedule. The studio hosts pure booty and pure sculpt classes, which both combine yoga, Pilates, and other movements to offer well-rounded workouts. No matter which exercises they choose, clients can always soothe sore muscles and help prevent strains with a massage from the studio's in-house therapist.
Wendy O’ Lenic, of Wendy Fit, began her professional dance career in 1979 with a Vegas dance review. Over the years, her passion for movement evolved and found a new life in yoga. Her curriculum covers various disciplines including yoga, Pilates, and meditation. Within the earth-green walls of her studio, Wendy and her staff lead students through group classes, private and semiprivate personal training sessions, and specialty courses such as ballet core and kettlebell. Once annually, the studio co-sponsors a yoga cruise so that students can practice their moves in fresh air and catch views of dolphins doing planks.
At Heat Yoga & Fitness Studio, students line up to sweat it out as a team of talented yogis leads them through classes that explore variations on the theme of superheated stretching. Perched atop wood floors in a sunny studio flooded with natural light, students explore traditional styles such as power yoga, ballet yoga, and yoga Pilates with the added benefit of heat, the force that induces sweat and prevents the formation of sentient snowmen each year. Therapists also treat clients with massages and bodywork to help alleviate back pain, improve circulation, and decrease stress.
