From a cozy understated and unassuming wooden cabin, Peachy Fitness opens its doors to community members of all ages. “It’s a new concept,” explains owner Zaini Lateef. “There are a lot of Yoga studios in Ann Arbor, but many of them focus on only adults, so I thought, why don’t I focus on classes for kids?”
Classes include: Mother-Daughter Zumba, for mothers with children ages 3-6, and Kids Zumba for children ages 7-12. This gives younger kids a chance to keep moving, and bond with their mothers through dance, while older kids get to express some independence, dancing with their peers. Kids Yoga, Teen Yoga and kids birthday parties are also a part of the Peachy Fitness program, all led by certified and kid-friendly fun instructors. In the fall, special programs like Halloweenninja Yoga and Glow-in-the-Dark Yoga will pop up for the little ones. Movie nights will start with a relaxing Yoga session and end with a movie and snacks. Parents can take comfort in bringing the kids to a nurturing and enriching environment, then go out for date night uninterrupted.
And when adults feel the need for some extra meditation, grown-up favorites include Lunchtime Yoga, Corporate Yoga and Candlelight Yoga. Lunchtime Yoga is a great way to break up the day, a 45-minute tension release with plenty of time to get back to the office focused and refreshed. Get the whole group involved with Corporate Yoga; a Peachy Fitness instructor will come right to the office to lead a group session. A community favorite, Candlelight Yoga, takes place on Monday evenings from 7:45-8:45pm and it’s a beautiful, luminous, family-friendly session, where everyone can come for some before-bed relaxation. Zaini expressed awe and delight that even the young children in attendance at Candlelight Yoga can be so still and centered.
Peachy Fitness is a welcoming environment, with many opportunities to learn and grow, adjusting classes to the skill and comfort level of participants. Mothers, fathers, kids and friends can all walk into the studio, and feel at home.
