CorePower Yoga will be making its Florida debut when the Brickell studio opens in Miami on Thursday, May 5. Since its founding in 2002, CorePower Yoga has grown into the ultimate mind-body experience and has enriched communities throughout the country with its intensely physical workouts rooted in the mindfulness of yoga.

CorePower Yoga will be making its Florida debut when the Brickell studio opens in Miami on Thursday, May 5. Since its founding in 2002, CorePower Yoga has grown into the ultimate mind-body experience and has enriched communities throughout the country with its intensely physical workouts rooted in the mindfulness of yoga.

The new studio features two practice rooms with breathtaking views of the bay from floor-to-ceiling windows, locker rooms with showers, and curated retail. A schedule with a range of classes will appeal to all skill levels and promote proper alignment and anatomical movement to motivate students to sweat, flow, breathe and sculpt in a space among a community of like-minded individuals.

"Health and fitness are a central part of Miami's DNA, which is why it was a natural decision to open a new studio in Miami as our first foray in Florida," said Niki Leondakis, Chief Executive Officer, CorePower Yoga. "Our growth is fueled by our growing community of dedicated students who choose CorePower Yoga for their fitness journey, and the commitment of our passionate teachers who are excited to offer the transformational benefits of our unique brand of yoga in Miami."

CorePower's purpose and core values will be brought to life at the new studio in Miami through the instructors, classes with varying levels of heat and sweat, and curated playlists that capture the essence and mood of each class. Unlike traditional yoga, CorePower Yoga earned its reputation of physically intense workouts anchored in the mindfulness of yoga through a range of classes, from low intensity, foundational practices to high intensity, muscle-sculpting classes, and restorative methods that are practiced both on and off the mat.    

To welcome residents of Miami to the CorePower Yoga family, new students will receive two free weeks and those who sign up for a Founding All Access Membership will get 25 percent off the regular monthly rate for life. The All Access Membership offers unlimited in-person classes across CorePower Yoga's network of more than 220 locations in 22 states, unlimited access to its Live and On Demand platforms, priority in-studio booking, 15 percent off in-studio retail purchases, and access to members-only studio events. The new CorePower Yoga app offers personalized access to studio schedules, an unparalleled content library of virtual classes, personal fitness challenges based on goals, and more.

CorePower opened two new studios earlier this year in Manhattan Beach, CA and Midtown, New York City, NY, with nine more planned, including the Brickell location, in 2022.

The Brickell studio will be located at 25 SW 9th Street, CU-4, in Miami, and the hours of operation will be 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Build a Bigger, Better, Butt at Bünda in Coral Gables

Bünda, pronounced BOON-DUH, is Portuguese slang for "butt" and, you guessed it, their goal is to get you a better butt. Check out this studio in Coral Gables for a tough lower body workout that benefits your entire body.

Bünda, pronounced BOON-DUH, is Portuguese slang for "butt" and, you guessed it, their goal is to get you a better butt. Check out this studio in Coral Gables for a tough lower body workout that benefits your entire body.

The workout:

Every Bünda class is 50 minutes and consists of 3 rounds. Each round is half StairMaster and half resistance and strength training. Fun fact: Bünda is the world’s first group fitness studio to incorporate the Stairmaster! At Bünda, they believe that training the lower body often is the key to a total body change.

You should also know:

Bünda workout programs are backed by science and years of research. Studies have shown that frequent glute training burns more fat. Workouts are based on form and progressions, not intervals and intensity.

Their motto is "Better Butt, Better Body, Backed By Science."

What makes Bünda unique?

"BÜNDA workout programs are backed by science and years of research," said Katie Lunger, co-founder and co-creator of Bünda. "Studies have shown that frequent glute training burns more fat. We base our workout on form and progressions, not intervals and intensity. On the floor we use traditional resistance training methods and the stair master program focuses on maximum fat utilization instead of high intensity intervals which burn mostly sugar."

What do members like best?

Here are a few of their reviews:

  • "Love the combo of Stairmaster and weight training. I like that the focus is heavier weights because I know this makes more of a difference! Highly recommend!"
  • "Love that they focus on your form. Quality over quantity!"
  • "I really like their Classes. The instructors are excellent about correcting form and suggesting modifications for injuries."
  • "Amazing concept! Felt challenging but in a great way! Big on form over everything! Even on the stair master :)"
  • "Super challenging class but really rewarding. Focused on personal best and reps, not a certain time."
  • "Was my first time trying out this class and I loved it! Coach is very motivational and provides a lot of great insight regarding nutrition, form, etc. Really recommend it!"

The extras:

Bünda has showers and validates 75 minutes of parking for $1. They have Year Of Ours workout apparel for sale, as well as their own Bünda merch. You can even find their own equipment for class designed for the Bünda Patented floor stations.

How to join in:

Your first class at Bünda is free. They also have a new client special where you can get 3 classes for $30. After that, drop in classes are $30. Bünda also offers an unlimited monthly membership called The Bünda Journey for $199. Class packages are also available with a one year expiration.

Location:

The studio is located at 25 Merrick Way in Coral Gables. They also have other locations in California in Los Angeles and Santa Monica.
