In a hot room covered in Himalayan salt, yoga practitioners strike poses and breathe deep, feeling suddenly as if they have been transported to a waterfall or a mountain top after a rainstorm. Rebirth Yoga studio added Himalayan salt to their hot yoga room because numerous fans credit the coral-hued crystals with releasing negative ions, the same ions that make the air feel so crisp after a rainstorm. Himalayan salt?s negative ions help purify the air and bring it into optimal iconic balance, which is said to restore health and wellness to those who spend time in the salt?s presence. Infrared heat warms the salt room, allowing muscles to relax and become more flexible, as friendly, experienced instructors guide practitioners into each twist and pose. Other classes include room-temperature fitness sessions such as Pilates, dumbbell-assisted yoga, Zumba, and bootcamp.
The studio also offers specialty services focused on childbirth, such as prenatal and childbirth classes, doula services, and fertility yoga. And in addition to leading sessions, instructors train students to become yoga instructors, Yoga Birth Method practitioners, and even doulas themselves.
Complex Barbell's coaches describe their gym as a "functional fitness facility." They conduct CrossFit–style workouts designed to improve a person's ability in multiple domains of fitness. They combine cardio, olympic lifting, gymnastics, plyometrics, and calisthenics into new workouts each day. They particularly specialize in teaching safety and proper-form, so that people can build strength, speed, and endurance with minimal risk of injury.
It may seem a heroic feat for the coaches to put in this level of focus on a day-to-day basis, but as lifelong athletes, they are prepared. They actually refer to themselves as The League, adopting super-heroic nicknames such as Coach Phoenix or Coach Bane. They pursue fitness as tirelessly as their namesakes pursue enemies or a contract with the most fashion-forward cape designer.
