Studio Rincon’s diverse staff of yoga, dance, and fitness professionals believe there are multiple ways to burn a calorie. On specialized sprung floors that help prevent injury, they lead high-energy kickboxing, Zumba, and hip-hop classes throughout the week. They also helm traditional Vinyasa yoga classes and modern YogaRok classes set to upbeat music, instead of the usual soothing sounds of a whale snoring in the jungle. For younger clients, the instructors also offer kids’ hip hop, ballet and tap, as well as small group summer camps. In order to be as inclusive as possible, the studio offers classes accessible for all ages and genders and never requires a membership fee, encouraging visitors to drop in any time.
