The sky's the limit at Flying Buddha Fitness. Or, perhaps more appropriately, the ceiling is. Aerial yoga is one of the fitness studio's specialties, and challenges students to perform traditional yoga moves while suspended in fabric hammocks that are attached to the ceiling. It sounds both exhilarating and exhausting, but the method is actually quite accessible for students of all fitness levels. The hammocks are hung close to the ground, so beginners can feel safe as they
learn how to use the fabric to maneuver in-and-out of poses, support their body weight, and make old workout clothes feel stylish again, while experienced aerial yogis can work their way up to performing acrobatic maneuvers such as inversions and flips.
Of course, Flying Buddha has plenty of classes for those who prefer to stay on the ground as well. The schedule features everything from meditative vinyasa yoga sessions to upbeat turbo kick and piloxing classes. And, although challenging workouts abound, the studio maintains a family-friendly vibe, as evidenced by its array of youth classes and Friday night family fitness sessions.
Inside Yoga By Degrees' spacious, spa-like studios, a team of certified yoga instructors helps students of all abilities refine strength, flexibility, and endurance during one-hour classes. The seven-day-a-week schedules features an assortment of yoga styles, including beginner-friendly fundamental classes, aerobic Vinyasa flows, Restorative, and Yoga Sculpt sessions that incorporate hand weights to chisel muscles into marble-statue perfection. Each session is heated to temperatures between 80 and 105 degrees to help rid bodies of toxins and melt muscles with deep, restorative stretches. During workouts, the dedicated teachers play a collection of both mellow and mood-boosting music to motivate minds, and after class students can change back into superhero spandex inside the facility's immaculate locker rooms.
At NEXT Yoga, the team of instructors believe that yoga not only builds flexibility and strength, but also improves balance and tones muscles. Whatever students are hoping to get out of their class, they can expect dynamic power hot yoga workouts in an environment that's designed to energize and tone at the same time. Although the fast-paced classes are set to upbeat music, they welcome and challenge students of all ages and ability levels. At the studio, students can take advantage of amenities such as showers and private lockers.
The certified Bikram yoga instructors at 26Hot draw students from all over the western suburbs to their facility, conveniently located near the Roosevelt Road exit of I-355. Within the 1,800-square-foot space, which is kept at 105 degrees and 40% humidity, yogis move through 26 postures designed to build muscle and cardiovascular health. The one-legged balancing stick pose, for example, puts bodies into a T formation, and the tree pose encourages birds to alight on squared shoulders.
The studio's reception area appropriately greets students with fiery-red couches and warm-yellow walls. At the desk, students can rent yoga mats and towels or purchase beverages such as chilled coconut water.
