The serene studio offers mat instruction in small class sizes to ensure students get individualized attention as they hone in on the mind-body approach to exercise and optimal wellness. With today's Groupon, you'll experience small-equipment mat classes led by one of the certified instructors—collectively sporting over 600 hours of training—who will in turn be your new pal and motivational lipo-melter. All classes last 55 minutes and utilize a variety of small equipment, including balls, magic-circle rings, 6-foot rollers, and resistance bands and weights, which place weakened putty muscles into a slender blender to create a strength smoothie. The dynamic sweat-session focuses on flattening abs and lengthening and increasing muscle tone.
The instructors at The Body Garage, drawing on extensive education in dance, possess a deep understanding of movement. Inside their hardwood-floor studio replete with vaulted ceilings and exposed-brick walls, they lead lessons in mat and Reformer Pilates, both of which work to strengthen the core until it can withstand a hug from the Hulk. The class schedule brims with lessons six days out of the week.
Since 1992, the certified instructors at ZMoves FW have hidden workouts inside engaging dance and stretch routines. They prefer to focus on the fun aspects of exercise, such as the infectious rhythms of Zumba, the empowering undulations of belly dance, and the refreshing poses of both mat and equipment Pilates. They banish boredom with exclusive class offerings as well, familiarizing physiques with the mat work and pulley exercises of the Gyrotonic Expansion System—a flowing regimen that aims to tone muscles while calming the nerves. During every lesson, the studio's sprung dance floor protects joints from overexertion and preps students for the 2020 advent of Moon Zumba.
Beauty and Beyond’s menu is more akin to a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure novel than a traditional list of spa services. While hair stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians make sure externals look fabulous, massage therapists soothe the stuff below the surface inside private treatment rooms. Health-minded instructors, meanwhile, lead a diverse range of classes— including yoga, Pilates, and pole dancing—in sequestered areas dedicated to fitness.
Co-owners Jana Holland and Julie Parsons believe that yoga's benefits can reach anyone willing to try the art. After several hundred hours of training, they opened Divine Center of Yoga as a springboard for a diverse student base, hoping to bring guests of all backgrounds together with classes on several posing styles. Their emphasis on acceptance is apparent in their teaching etiquette: they provide modified stretches for all skill levels and accommodate visitors with chronic ailments or injuries. The wheelchair-accessible studio also offers private lessons for pupils stuck in Celtic knot pose.
