The chief yoga instructors on a staff of dozens, Gina Norman and Stan Woodman aren’t your average couple—or even your average yoga studio owners. A world traveler with a longtime interest in mind-body work, Gina followed her path to Thailand, where she learned the local yoga practice, and then to India, where she studied up on vipassana meditation. Prior to opening Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Center, Stan was a snowboarding addict and decades-long yoga practitioner living in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Today, the two strive to offer “a yoga for everyone,” with a lineup that includes smooth Vinyasa practice, disciplined Ashtanga poses, hot yoga in a 95-degree studio, and family-friendly fitness classes. After working up a sweat exercising or reciting Ulysses in one of the studio’s classes, students can take the heat off with soothing, natural spa services such as massages, body scrubs, and energy healing. With a long menu of pampering therapies, no aspect of the body leaves Kaia wanting for its own treatment, and the onsite vegetarian café’s baked goods, wraps, juices, and smoothies help guests with the other kind of bodily nourishment.
Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation in the basement of an office building, Pure Barre is franchise fitness studio has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Dancer, choreographer, and fitness buff Carrie Rezabek Dorr founded Pure Barre more than a decade ago in Birmingham, MI. Since then, Carrie has traveled around the country, hopping from gym to gym demonstrating the innovative program that draws techniques from ballet. Much like angering a witch with a penchant for frog spells, performing the Pure Barre technique can be a fast and effective way to transform your body. Motivating music slices through the 60-minute workouts, each of which utilizes a ballet barre and small isometric movements designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
Be Shri Yoga co-owners Karen Rider, Nancy Straus, and Rita Shepard Ende understand that yoga is both a physical and spiritual exercise. Karen was drawn to it more than 20 years ago because of constant back pain from sports injuries, whereas Rita took to it because of the peace and joy she felt when practicing. Likewise, Nancy has been practicing since 1973, and has been teaching for almost a decade. The trio has curated a large staff of instructors and a diverse mix of classes, giving students the opportunity to test out a lot of different styles. Beginners can try Basics or gentle yoga, whereas more advanced students can challenge themselves with Vigorous Flow—or by attempting to do yoga while hanging from the ceiling.
