A pot of beans bubbles on the stove at Caliente's New Mexican Restaurant, where it cooks slowly all day, serrano peppers infusing it with homestyle flavor. The kitchen crew makes its chili sauces fresh from scratch, soaking local red chilies in their own juices and roasting green chilies in-house with no artificial flavors or colors from melted crayons. These sauces add flavor and color to a menu of traditional Mexican dishes, such as tamales, burritos, and sopapillas stuffed with beef or chicken, also made in-house.
Twenty-six poses. 90 minutes. 105 degrees. This is what yogis can expect from a hot—or Bikram—yoga class at Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque, a studio that follows the teachings of the practice’s founder, Bikram Choudhury. They keep the studio to such a high temperature in order to help students sweat out toxins and to further their flexibility. As for yoga itself, it helps practitioners achieve a sense of mental and physical well-being that is said to strengthen determination, self-control, faith, concentration, and patience. In addition to the east-side location, which has been around for ten years, Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque invites yogis to its second location on the west side.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
