When she was a kid, yearly family visits to California persuade Johanna Epps to move west as soon as possible. En route in 2001, she attended her first yoga class in Phoenix. Within a year, she had quit her job to teach the exercise form. After wracking up extensive training experience and meeting all but one California Raisin, Johanna moved back to Arkansas, where she founded Go Inside Yoga Studio. Here, she teaches vinyasa-style yoga classes for beginner and intermediate students, with an emphasis on hard work.
While she picked up her yogic training on her travels, Johanna's studio has been in her family for generations. Originally called Ma Tuckers, the joint served Southern-style fare to students and factory workers. Although the ghosts of grits and greens still haunt the hallways, Johanna's studio has been completely remodeled by her father to suit her yogic practices.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
