Sensitive to gender-specific fitness needs, instructors host mostly women’s classes, supplemented by intense men’s core classes to sculpt bulkier, cut physiques. In ballet barre classes, women partner up with a wall-mounted bar for balance as they perform dance exercises that increase flexibility, and tighten cores. Teachers enhance the feminine figure with abs, core, and buttocks exercises in the Hourglass Class, and a foam-rolling stretch class goes coed to help men and women stretch and strengthen their limbs.
The white walls, paper lanterns, and polished hardwood floors make up most of Studio Maya's austere space. During the week, lifelong dancer Maya Jocelyn hosts fitness classes for women and men, drawing on the conditioning techniques used by dancers and the modern science of sports medicine to draw up the blueprints of her own signature exercise routines. On weekends, when she's not sculpting bodies, she transforms the space into an artists' haven, inviting actors to rehearse, painters and photographers to exhibit their work, and mimes to overcome creative hurdles and learn to think outside the box.
