Far-infrared heat is known for its healing properties. These range from increasing circulation and lymphatic flow to easing pain and stiffness. Oxygen Yoga & Fitness's hot yoga classes combine the radiant energy's benefits with those of yoga. Each class has a different focus, such as strengthening the upper body or promoting relaxation, but they all work to improve pupils' flexibility and core strength while detoxifying bodies. Although the hot yoga classes are the studio's focus, it also offers other fitness sessions, such as kids' yoga, boot-camp, and Zumba classes.
At Go Yoga and Fitness, the classes are more focused on building strength and burning calories than they are on helping you achieve zen. With a lineup of yoga, spinning, cardio, and strength-building classes—all conducted in hot rooms with the exception of spinning—the instructors assure clients they'll work up a sweat. That's especially true for the hot yoga classes, which range in intensity from the Vinyasa-style Go Power Flow to the more gentle Go Yang to Yin.
Oxygen Yoga & Fitness in Port Moody
takes advantage of the healing benefits of infrared heaters in its
studios, using the lights to warm up 11 different kinds of yoga and conditioning classes. Some classes follow a traditional series of asana used in heated studios, while others combine cardio or strength training with the poses to sculpt muscles. The studio also hosts non-heated classes; such as their fusion of boot camp and yoga training. The class involves Pilates, cardiovascular exercise, and interval training, all built upon a base of yogic poses performed while pretending to wear heavy boots.
When Elevation Fitness was designed, it was based on intensive research into what other fitness centers were doing right and what they were doing wrong. The result was an 18,000-square-foot facility that's doing plenty of things right.
This place is both a training ground for clients looking to get into shape and for athletes trying to bump their performance up to the next level. Gym-goers can tackle obstacle courses on a turf field, work out on the vast array of functional machines, or take boot-camp, yoga, and circuit-training classes. They can seek out certified personal trainers to help them burn fat and build muscle efficiently. And, at the sports performance academy, they can sign up for sport-specific training classes to gain strength and power.
Believing that the atmosphere is what brings people back time and again, Elevation Fitness strives to provide a convenient space where people feel welcome and supported while working out. Parents can take advantage of the onsite child care. If you're injured or need an adjustment, you can head over to the facility's chiropractor. And everyone can enjoy some post-workout refreshments at the juice and snack bar.
