Having struggled with weight problems when she was younger, Healthy Habits Studio owner Rose Zahnn knows the importance of exercise and eating right firsthand. She opened the studio almost 20 years ago, and in that time has seen it grow to hosting more than 25 fitness classes each week.
Fit Body Boot Camp classes each feature a different, unique workout that helps tone and strengthen muscles, burn fat, and boost metabolisms to burn more calories for hours after the workout, not just during it. In addition to group classes, the staff is available for one-on-one sessions that can focus on weight training, Pilates, and yoga. Rose also offers a weight-loss program in which she emails clients once a day with nutrition and exercise suggestions for 10 days, or the time it takes a team of NASA scientists to reengineer your body into its healthiest, most aerodynamic version.
Rise Yoga's soothing studio begins releasing students' tension with calming, contemporary trappings before they ever set foot in the stress-relieving, mixed-level yoga classes led by experienced and attentive teachers. All of the 60-to 90-minute yoga sessions incorporate gentle stretches and meditative practices, including the beginner-friendly Hatha yoga session, a slow-paced class incorporating long-held poses and calming deep breaths. Vinyasa classes increase heart rates with dynamic flowing movements, sun salutations, and traditional yogic spelling bees in which students bend their bodies into common yoga vocabulary. Yoga therapy works to help students to overcome chronic pain or injuries, and intensive yoga workshops introduce students to the ancient practice or strengthen their relationship to it.
The reinvigorating spirit of power Vinyasa classes provides the means for transformation and self-improvement at Solfire Yoga. Within the studio's safe and supportive environment, the instructors encourage students to focus their thoughts on the inherent connections between the mind and the body while challenging themselves with a dynamic physical practice. The classes vary in intensity, which allows the instructors to accommodate attendees of virtually any skill level.
During the introductory-level sessions, students learn the fundamental poses and begin linking them with measured breaths, creating seamlessly transitioning sequences. The more advanced lessons can provide an extra challenge by increasing the pace, raising the temperature to as high as 99 degrees, or incorporating more demanding poses such as arm balances and inversions. Over time, Vinyasa practice will improve strength, stamina, focus, and self-awareness.
When the clock strikes noon, most people start thinking about what’s for lunch. The instructors at Okunami Workplace Yoga, on the other hand, begin leading their students through a warm-up at the noon hour to prep them for an invigorating 50-minute yoga routine. They travel to highly populated office buildings throughout the Sacramento area on weekdays where they motivate businesspeople to launch into a midday workout to break up an otherwise sedentary day at the office. Instructor and owner Valerie Okunami’s passion for yoga shines through each class she leads, as she helps aspiring yogis of all ages and abilities lead more active and healthy lifestyles. In addition to traveling to their preset locations to lead public classes, she and her staff make special trips by request to office sites to lead private group lessons.
Hardwood floors, exposed brick, lofted ceilings, and paneled windows make Yoga Shala's practice room feel like a hip art gallery. Within this space, instructors help students sculpt stronger, more flexible bodies. Though the instructors welcome students of all experience and fitness levels to every class, they help students reach specific goals and shelves by teaching three yoga styles. Vinyasa classes, with their continuous series of flowing postures, provide a powerful and strengthening practice. Proceeding at a comparatively slower pace, Yin yoga focuses on stretching the body's connective tissues. Kundalini classes emphasize an equal balance of breathing, movement, meditation, and chanting.
