Rasa Yoga Shala’s brand of Vinyasa-style yoga differs from most; the studio’s creative approach encourages students to go beyond physical and personal awareness and tune in to the “pure feeling” that pulses through the body when the mind grows quiet. Experienced instructors work with students to help them achieve this level of enlightenment, leading classes that require them to twist, bend, and stretch through a continual series of poses. With a variety of class levels, the studio invites everyone to enjoy the workout, whether they are first-timers, regular yoga practitioners, or Gumbys grown stiff from being left out in the sun. Before each class begins, instructors set the studio’s thermostat to a moderate temperature so students can comfortably warm themselves as poses progress. In addition to their flagship classes, the studio offers workshops in innovative styles such as hip-hop yoga and mom-and-baby yoga, a relaxing session that soothes the nerves of women and babies frustrated with their inability to chew anything.

The Fit Playground's premise is simple: exercise should be fun. The team strives to take adults back to a time when clambering up trees and leaping over imaginary lava pits was the only workout they needed. Inside the indoor playground, participants scale ropes and swing from monkey bars, toning muscles, burning calories, and doing something gym goers rarely get to do: having a good time. The fitness-focused play isn't just for adults, of course—The Fit Playground also has classes designed for kids and teens.
