In a spacious studio heated up to 105 degrees, Bikram Yoga Renton’s instructors guide classes through a body-bending curriculum that aims to cultivate strength, flexibility, and inner peace.

After feeling unfulfilled by traditional workouts, Seven Hot Yoga owner Debbie Dixon turned to yoga, in which she finally found relief from her shin splints, anxiety, fatigue, and restlessness. Now, 14 years after taking her first class, Debbie leads her own team of instructors inside a spacious, heated studio. Suited to yogis of all experience levels, classes range from Hot Hatha, in which students cycle through 26 different poses and two breathing exercises, to Yin yoga, which focuses on easing joints and improving energy flow. Teachers forbid cell phones within the studio, fostering a serene atmosphere and allowing flip phones to stretch out their own hinges.

Diets, traditional medicine, and exercise regimens all work best when people keep one thing in mind: Everyone’s body is different. Vitality Pilates Studio's instructors, some of whom boast more than a decade of experience, understand this basic truth, tailoring their teachings to individual bodies. They blend both traditional Pilates practice with newer teaching styles in introductory classes, private lessons, and multilevel training classes that may integrate apparatus and prop work. To accommodate those who want to dive into Pilates more extensively, they offer an instructor-training course and a rare copy of Joseph Pilates's high-school diary.

Founder Heather Scearce started practicing Pilates in 1998 after she suffered a severe back injury in a car accident. As it turns out, Pilates became an essential factor in her recovery, fueling her desire to help others discover the beneficial exercise form for themselves. In addition to one-on-one sessions, her staff of trainers at Conscious Body Pilates also host private group Pilates sessions that can be customized to allow friends, families, and sock-puppet troupes to work out in tandem.
Scearce and the team have equipped their studio with quality Pilates equipment. For personal training, the studio offers a weight-training area with stability balls, dumbbells, medicine balls, and weighted body bars, and for cardio workouts, clients can hop on a Precor treadmill, elliptical trainer, indoor rower, or a spin bike. To keep the space fresh, professional cleaners regularly sanitize the facility, and staffers offer hand sanitizer and towel service.
