Antigravity Aerial Yoga
What it is: a new take on traditional yoga. You’re nestled in a flowing, cocoonlike hammock suspended from the ceiling, as you move through a series of poses.
Why you’ll like it: As you stretch and strengthen muscles, you’ll improve circulation and quash tension, and the upside-down inversions will decompress your spine.

Aqua Zumba
What it is: A refreshing twist on the latin-inspired cardio dance class.
Why you’ll like it: Shaking your rump in a regular Zumba class can burn more than 450 calories per hour. Add in the resistance provided by the water, and you’ll get an even more effective and challenging workout.
