The staff at It Figures takes a comprehensive, holistic approach to wellness. To get bodies in shape, exercisers can work one-on-one with personal trainers, or sweat amongst friends during yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and other group training sessions. To continue the work outside of the gym, a nutritionist teaches clients how to balance their diets and how to balance their meals atop spinning plates. With fitness and nutrition under control, the on-staff reflexologist helps bring minds and bodies into balance. And all this work can be complemented by a vitamin regimen provided by the center's naturopathic doctor, who propels clients even closer to their wellness goals.
Fountain of Yoga's staff focuses on motivating its clients toward complete wellness through yoga, and tension- and pain-relieving therapies. In calming, subdued lighting, the instructors lead students through Vinyasa yoga classes in which they synchronize deep breathing to a quick, flowing series of poses. In each session, students can perform more challenging or easier movements based on their abilities, and the instructors walk around the classroom to offer slight modifications to help them to perfect their technique. Furthering their relaxation services, instructors soothe clients and assuage their aches with massage and reiki services by appointment.
