Yoga Mala's impassioned instructors limber up bodies and enliven minds through nine different yoga disciplines. Smooth down frizzy brain waves with the soothing, passive Yin yoga, in which postures are held for up to five minutes, slowly relaxing sore muscles and opening up shy joints. Clients seeking high-energy body bends, meanwhile, can opt for Vinyasa yoga, which focuses on opening the hips and shoulders via intense postures, or the Ujjayi Pulse class, set to the beat of live drum music. Yoga Mala's class schedule invites yogis to align spines and stack chakras morning through evening within Yoga Mala's spacious, sunlit studio, making daily practice as simple as befriending a lonely sock puppet.
After years spent preparing boxers for the ring, Shae Therrien, a certified CrossFit instructor, and Charlee Demyen, a boxer, discovered that the fitness regimens tailored to fighters could benefit everyone. As part of Fresh Start Conditioning at the Regina Boxing Club, they now train patrons of all fitness levels with their circuit-based training program, which combines the endurance and training of boxing with elements of CrossFit. The routines vary from skipping and running to ab-strengthening and medicine-ball drills to heavy-bag training. The program’s classes are designed to transform students’ appearance and overall health, resulting in an improved range of motion, enhanced stamina, and rock-solid abs that can turn even the statue of David’s head.
Per their studio’s name, the massage therapists at Cathedral Sports Massage treat the body as a temple. Their attention to patients’ comfort is evident through six different modalities, whether they’re soothing pregnancy’s aches with prenatal massage or melting away stress with hot stones.
The trainers at Body Revolution Fitness believe in good workout grammar. They emphasize the notion of "syntax"—the proper order and inclusion of several habits that each contribute to a healthy body. Workouts are one key element, of course, and the backbone of the primary staff's three-month program. They customize 30-minute routines for their clients based on weight loss and strength goals, maintaining that a half-hour of exercise at a vigourous intensity leads to notable results and minimal exhaustion. They also counsel their patrons on nutritional choices, bad habits, and general lifestyle plans, functioning as listening ears rather than just mantra machines.
Each of the trainers has two- or four-year degree and at least two years of experience in the industry. Led by owner Trevor Folgering, they conduct private and semi-private sessions bookended by assessments and consultations. Customers who can't report to their location can even sign up for coaching online or over the phone, accessing the gym's internet wellness portal for a bounty of resources.
At District Fitness Studio, a dedicated team of personal trainers, massage therapists, kinesiologists, and health professionals nurture clients toward their personal goals with a full stock of equipment and individual attention. The facility integrates comforting design elements such as Victorian wallpaper, plant arrangements, and leather seating in its fitness areas, eliminating the sterile and unwelcoming atmosphere often found in fitness studios. At the center of the health-and-wellness lounge, District Fitness Studio trainers lead groups through kettlebell training, TRX training, nutrition counselling, and fitness plans. The staff also guides individuals with personal training to address specific goals without having to worry about whether their fellow exercisers are actually undercover agents from rival fitness schools.
