Best of Seattle for Kids and Families: Family Health and Fitness
It’s 3 a.m. Your baby has a fever and a rash. You turn to the person you trust the most to help you in your darkest hours: not your husband, not your mother — it’s your pediatrician. Keeping yourself and your family healthy is priority number one, and choosing the right fitness programs, doctors and dentists is something you clearly do with the utmost care.


Best of Seattle: 8 Limbs Yoga Center

Moms' Fitness Program

Winner: 8 Limbs Yoga Center
8 Limbs Yoga Centers four Seattle locations make finding a nearby prenatal or postnatal yoga class easy as doing the lotus pose. Postnatal yoga classes include a check-in time, so parents can build community and focus on regaining strength and energy after childbirth. The centers also offer family yoga classes for when the baby gets bigger, including a parent/preschool class that includes stories and games.

The Bar Method, which has a location in Redmond and brand-new one in South Lake Union, seems to be the hottest thing going on the local fitness scene these days. We know moms who love it, saying it’s a great workout that kicks your butt into shape — quite literally.

Speaking of hot, Haute Yoga on Queen Anne gets kudos for its hot hatha and power vinyasa classes.

StrengthStudio on Capitol Hill offers small-group total body workout classes by a former elementary schoolteacher (she’s also a runner, aerobics instructor, former Crossfit athlete, a Zumba dance instructor and a BodyPump instructor) who knows how to keep you in line — in the best way.

Other finalists include West Seattle Pilates instructor Beth Montanez, and the Stroum Jewish Community Center on Mercer Island.
