The certified teachers at Bikram Yoga North Shore believe that everyone from star athletes to senior citizens can benefit from the oxygenating and posture-correcting benefits of yoga. Inside their 105-degree studio, they lead students through a series of 26 postures designed to stimulate the body's organs and glands and boost circulation from head to toe, bringing relief from stress, pain, and depression. The renovated space boasts antimicrobial and antibacterial flooring that allows stretchers to participate without holding their breath for the entire 90-minutes, and although the staff stresses that the Bikram style is accessible to anyone, they also offer a hatha-yoga class that can help beginners become acquainted with the asanas.
North Shore Keiki Surf School gets students as comfortable on the water as they are on land. Instructors begin with the fundamentals, teaching students about balancing on a board and following the waves. Students can learn in private lessons, in small groups, or via tandem surfing practice.
As heat bounces off the vibrant orange walls of Bikram Yoga Mililani, a Bikram-certified instructor leads students of all levels through 26 postures that work together to systematically stretch and strengthen every part of the body. The 105-degree heat and 40% humidity work together to loosen up stiff muscles, allowing guests to sink deeper into poses, sweat out toxins, and sweat off misguided clown face paint. After class, students can snack on fresh orange slices or cool off on the outdoor patio while daring the greenery to forward-bend from their roots.
The workouts at Hardcore Fitness Hawaii don't just challenge people physically—they also are designed to strengthen resolve and self-determination. As students proceed through a regimen that can include jumping rope, bench-pressing weights, and pulling oversized truck tires, they are forced to push aside negative thoughts and find the inspiration needed to achieve seemingly insurmountable goals. By offering physical as well as emotional support and encouragement, Hardcore Fitness Hawaii's staff helps attendees safely push their existing fitness boundaries.
While watches are typically defined by displaying the hour, the most remarkable function of Zionic's stylish sport watches is completely unrelated to telling time. Infused in each watch's silicone band are particles of germanium and tourmaline that emit a constant aura of negative ions, which can provide a bevy of purported health benefits including increased endurance, higher energy levels, and spider-sense.
The timepieces themselves, however, don't slouch in the functions department. Water resistant to three atmospheres, the digital faces display the time, day, and date and weigh in at a feathery 10 grams.
