Our diverse schedule of hybrid (in-person and online) classes is ever-changing depending on demand. Certified Yoga Instructors Kc Hanson and Elise Spofford keep classes fresh and schedules full. With class schedules constantly changing, current schedules can be found at the Club or on the Events Calendar.

Yoga is included in Club membership, but also available to non-members for a drop-in fee of $8.


Come take a mini vacay in our Sunvision 24SF tanning bed. 

20-minute sessions are $8 each or 10/$65

Not a member but want to tan? No problem. We offer special tanning-only membership packages.

Infrared Sauna

Come relax in our full spectrum JNH Lifestyles Infrared Sauna! This sauna uses infrared panels instead of conventional heat to easily penetrate human tissue, heating up your body before heating up the air.

Full spectrum refers to all 3 types of infrared: far, mid, and near; with each offering its own unique benefits. All 3 wavelengths inside the same sauna cabin create a powerhouse of therapeutic energy. Near, mid, and far infrared work amazingly well with each other, creating a great detoxification/recovery experience.

Sessions are up to 30 minutes long, but we block an hour for the user to shower before and after the session. There is added charge for this service. $8 per session or 10 for $65.

Not a member but want to use the sauna? No problem. We offer special sauna-only membership packages.


Elise Spofford is a Licensed Massage Therapist offering 60- and 90-minute massage therapy sessions, as well as 30-minute chair massages by appointment.
