At Inner Light Yoga, Vinyasa yoga classes help students interweave their breath with the movements of the body. The studio's director completed her teacher training with the Himalayan Institute. She loves to share the practice of yoga with her students, and works to create a relaxed, welcoming environment that's free of judgement.
Set in the middle of Wilmington's Trolley Square Shopping Center, Pure Yoga Pilates Studio is a peaceful fitness oasis. With large windows that let in sunlight that spills over the bamboo flooring, this welcoming studio offers classes in Vinyasa- and Hatha-style yoga, along with classic mat Pilates sessions. Certified instructors lead the small group classes, helping students to gain strength and flexibility in a supportive, noncompetitive environment.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
