Brazilian Jujitsu dominates mixed-martial-arts competitions and has captured the imaginations of hundreds of aspiring fighters, including Tito Hatz, the head instructor and current owner of East Coast United. To hone his skills, Tito travelled to Brazil to train under members of the Gracie family, the clan credited with originating modern Brazilian Jujitsu. As an instructor, he believes in sculpting bodies of all ages and genders into the physiques of elite athletes. Students at his gym grapple through the traditional exercises of Brazilian Jujitsu or pummel unseen opponents with the lightning foot, fist, elbow, and knee strikes of muay thai kickboxing. Those interested in professional fighting undertake training in a blend of the two arts in mixed-martial-arts classes. Certified yoga instructor Maywatte Hartz teaches relaxation and mental focus in her Vinyasa yoga classes, which focus on mastering deep breathing and flowing movements.
Registered yoga teacher and founder Giovanna Rogow has been helping practitioners from all walks of life foster connections between the mind, body, and spirit in Zomoti's newly renovated studio. Her team of experienced instructors, all of whom are certified at at least the 200-hour level, leads 10 different class styles, teaching strengthening power yoga, Vinyasa flow fundamentals, and Zomoti soothing yoga, designed to relax the body and mind with meditative postures and comforting hugs from supportive mats.
Bikram Yoga Bronx and Yorktown offers students 38 weekly classes. While you move through 26 poses in 90 minutes, the temperature holds steady at 104 degrees to keep muscles limber and slow-cook any nearby pork roasts. Once class is over, you can hit the studio's showers before heading back outside, detoxified and revitalized.
Ojas Center welcomes pupils of all skill levels and experiences to study in its courses of spiritual, centering yoga, heal with its therapeutic treatments and massages, and share in the community of fellow students with workshops. The team of instructors draw from a well-spring of diverse backgrounds and experiences, such as Varsha Bakshani’s E-RYT200 certification, Jason Morris’s past as a dancer and martial artist, and Dr. Indrani Maity’s training as a naturopath and clinical nutritionist.
Amid glowing wall sconces and goldenrod walls, visitors achieve deeper stretches and flush out toxins in hot-yoga lessons, or balance their breathing in Hatha sessions. In addition to building muscle tone and well-being with therapeutic reiki, massage, and yoga instruction, Ojas connects students with other like-minded individuals with yoga retreats, and encourages creativity and hosts flying carpet races in youth summer camps.
Co-owners Adam Roper and Erik Cummings didn't always sport the healthy bodies they do now, but through years of dedicated practice and, eventually, Bikram certifications, Adam lost 35 pounds and Erik addressed a shoulder injury caused by a previous bike accident. Today, the two yogis share their passion for the heated practice with the help of a team of fellow certified instructors and Bikram Yoga Harlem's unofficial mascot, a pint-sized dachshund named Sebastian Kumquat. The studio welcomes practitioners of all experience levels, with Bikram's series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises catering to even the rustiest of tin men. Balmy temperatures around the 100-degree mark warm the muscles, helping students achieve deeper twists, binds, and bends, and encouraging the body to expel harmful toxins and clingy droplets of T-1000.
