If hot yoga is not such a comfortable experience for you, then infrared yoga might be exactly what you’re looking for. It uses infrared panels that feel like the rays of the sun, allowing for a more controlled heat environment while performing your asanas. Infrared yoga offers a wide range of benefits, including smoother skin, increased flexibility, cellulite reduction and improved circulation, among others! Book this unique experience here.

3. Barre class


Combining the techniques of yoga, ballet and Pilates, barre is becoming a popular workout choice. In barre, you’re not just lifting weights at the gym, but building muscle by having fun using small, controlled movements in repetitive exercises with the goal of encouraging the perfect “dancer’s body” that combines proper posture and physique.
