Jim Keegan, the founder of Yoga Nirvana, draws on his studies in kinesiology and biomechanics to help visitors obtain inner peace and healthy bodies. Before opening his own studio, he served a nine-year stint as the head yoga teacher at Arizona State University and continues his teaching career through international workshops. Jim and his fellow instructors guide students through classes such as Ashtanga for beginners, Kundalini yoga, power yoga, and mediation. Sore students can ease their tired muscles by scheduling an appointment with the studio's licensed massage therapist. In addition to group classes, Jim offers private lessons and whisks pupils away on all-inclusive yoga retreats.
Moving Breath Pilates' owner and master teacher, Virginia Nicholas, teams up with a posse of skilled Pilates virtuosos to sculpt svelte physiques and strengthen cores with private 55-minute Pilates sessions. In a breezy studio bedecked with ivory walls and fully stocked with Pilates machines, wellness gurus coach students one on one, acquainting them with fundamental Pilates techniques, tweaked according to each pupil's personal fitness goals and astrological chart. The experienced instructor acquaints Pilates protégés with such traditional Pilates equipment as the Universal Reformer, trapeze table, and Wunda chair, training them to master proper form and memorize each of the apparatuses' birthdays and anniversaries. Following the intensive private session, students emerge energized and flexible enough to race a rocket-fueled rubber-band ball home.

Mira Pilates Studio's team of fitness gurus coaches students as they firm muscles and fortify cores in intensive Pilates mat classes. The studio populates its schedule with classes for students of all skill levels, including small-group mat classes in which teachers motivate up to 15 students with individualized instruction and carefully choreographed cheerleading routines. Within the expansive studio, sea-foam green and deep teal counters thick brick walls as pupils unfurl personal or rented mats onto sleek hardwood floors. Mat mavens energize pupils as they lengthen limbs and tone sinews, heightening resistance with handheld props that include foam rollers, magic circles, and particularly flexible snakes. Following each lesson, freshly stretched students can emerge with improved balance and coordination, allowing them to sprint across the tightrope that leads to their homes.
At Studiomixx, owner and trainer Shandi Rooney applies the principle of muscle confusion—adding variety to a workout’s exercises—to help her students avoid plateaus as they evolve through her intense, calorie-burning Mixx fitness classes. Her main class, Mixx, keeps muscles guessing and stimulated under the influence of Pilates, yoga, and callisthenic exercises. Rooney, who has trained with Bravo channel personal trainer Jackie Warner and The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels, also offers a handful of spinoff classes such as Mixx Lite for less advanced students, CardioMixx, and Circuit Mixx, as well as grueling, detoxifying Xtreme Barre classes that can burn hundreds of calories per session, or one pile of freshly raked leaves.

Though they come from very different backgrounds, the instructors at Joyful Yoga Studio all share one common link: they genuinely love what they do. Inside the 3,000-square-foot studio, they share that collective passion as they lead more than 50 classes per week. Many of those classes are branches of yoga, but the schedule also features Pilates, Zumba, TRX, and an indoor fit camp. With such diversity, newcomers might not know which class suits their needs. But, luckily, exercisers can confide in the studio's staff to help them identify which classes are best for losing weight, which are ideal for gaining strength, and which look most impressive on an online dating profile.
