With one look at Yoga Escape's classes, it's clear that YogaFit-certified instructor Catherine Albertini prizes yoga's ability to help people de-stress and find a sense of peace. The classes, which sport such names as Gentle Yoga and Rest & Relax, all focus on relaxation and meditation, and they help participants unwind after a long day of sitting at work. Even the beginners' class incorporates seated meditation and ends in a relaxation pose.
Albertini, who welcomes all levels to her classes, emphasizes slow and steady progress and helps beginners acclimate their bodies to their newfound practice. She teaches them how to use props and encourages them to listen to their bodies?just in case their hamstrings start to cry.
Exercise is for everyone. That's the belief at The Lotus Studio, where classes include yoga, Zumba, dance, and specifically designed fitness classes for seniors. Yoga classes range from flow-style and power yoga to relaxing yin yoga and chair yoga classes for those with weight-barring limitations. Zumba, meanwhile, feels more like a party than a workout, as participants burn calories while moving to easy-to-follow dance steps set to international rhythms. Kids get to have fun during Tumble Bugs gymnastics, ballet, and other dance classes to distract them from asking for a pony before every meal.
Salem Fitness Center caters to diverse exercise tastes with strength and cardio equipment, group fitness classes, great senior classes, and sessions in yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. As well, you will have access to wi-fi network and a large free weight room. To free up time for exercise in parents' busy schedules, the gym offers a daycare center where children can socialize, read, sing songs, and build crafts. An on-location tanning salon includes Sonnenbraune Klassic 732 and Pryzma High Performance beds as well as tanning lotions.
Named Miss Belly Dancer USA in 2012, Cassandra Rose is more than qualified to teach her trade at her eponymous belly dance academy. She not only leads dance troupes in various fusions of belly dance, but also teaches beginner classes that emphasize basic steps, isolations, and the ever-important shimmy. Of course, Cassandra still performs, often with her dance troupes at various special events.
