Although its classes can provide a physical challenge, South Mountain Yoga emphasizes a mindful, contemplative form of yoga practice that teaches self-empowerment to students of all skill levels. The renovated studio space—housed within a 100-year-old building overlooking Spiotta Park—features modern amenities, such as a new, strand-woven bamboo floor and a back wall of sliding glass doors. This practice area is where the instructors share their passion for yoga—and encourage students to make yoga a part of their everyday lives. During beginner-level sessions, students learn the fundamentals of maintaining safe postural alignment and performing mindful breathing exercises. As they deepen their practice with South Mountain Yoga, they can begin to master inversions and other complex postures while constantly honing their strength and flexibility.
Veterans of the physical training profession, the five trainers at Spa Lady South Orange are dedicated to helping women achieve their weight and fitness goals through motivated lifestyle changes. In their bright, airy weight room and wood-floored class area, the trainers lead these clients through exercises tailored to sculpt each unique body or test the limits of each unique human-impersonating robot. Group classes emphasize exercise's communal appeal, with Zumba, Pilates, and kickboxing helping students burn calories in fun, high-energy settings. In addition to classes and training sessions, the gym also houses a few weight-loss shortcuts; heat body wraps help trim down stubbornly plump parts of the body with fat-melting warmth.
At Women's Fitness, women of all fitness levels work their entire body during 30-minute fitness routines with the help of experienced trainers and motivating music. During the studio’s signature workout, exercisers breeze through a circuit of cardio intervals and strength-training exercises as an instructor doles out personalized tips and words of encouragement. Participants also cultivate fitter physiques using adjustable hydraulic-resistance machines designed to work two muscles groups at once. Eventually, this approach to quick, effective circuit training helps to increase muscle mass in time, which encourages bodies to melt more calories and pop fudge-dipped thought bubbles before they even penetrate cranial barriers.
The fitness instructors at The Spa Next Door help clients achieve their self-improvement goals with varied courses that emphasize the value of cross-training. Gym members and drop-in guests improve stamina on stationary cycles, seek to shed pounds in boot-camp classes, and sweat to upbeat Latin music in Zumba sessions.
Shakti Yoga & Living Arts encourages people to embrace the benefits of yoga by providing opportunities for students of all ages and skill levels to further their practice. When designing classes, the instructors draw inspiration from various styles, including the mindful alignment of Iyengar, the seamlessly transitioning sequences of Vinyasa, introspective focus of Kundalini, and the physically engaging backbends, inversions, and cartwheels of Ashtanga. With sessions that range from calm and mildly paced to vigorous and
dynamic, the schedule accommodates individuals with varying yoga interests.
Shakti Yoga & Living Arts also offers healing treatments designed to promote holistic wellbeing. Acupuncture, meditation, reflexology, reiki, and massages that combine multiple modalities into each session all help promote balance, complementing an individual's ongoing yoga practice.
