Allen Yoga Center founder and certified instructor Brook Cheatham believes that "Yoga is more than an exercise. It gets into you at the very core of your being … your emotional baggage is stripped away along with your ego.” After years spent as an instructor at various studios, Brook decided to open her own space, where students can reflect on themselves while cultivating their physical and mental well being. The mocha-stained hardwood floors complement the yoga center's warm plum-and-gold walls, which are intentionally bare, hosting only a single portrait of a multilimbed deity, Gary the Octopus. Brook leads classes ranging in intensity from the cardiovascular-stimulating Vinyasa to the restorative and meditative Hatha. Regular workshops welcome guest instructors to educate students on a variety of wellness topics, and the teacher-training program grants knowledge to those who wish to someday lead their own classes.:m]]

Imagine the moment when a shy, introverted young girl steps in front of a room full of people for the first time and speaks with confidence and clarity. This is a regular occurrence at Drama Kids International, where experienced teachers use a unique, copyrighted curriculum to help shape and focus outgoing children or draw shy children out of their shells. Classes for kids as young as 3 refine speech techniques, dramatic movement, and imagination, giving them the confidence to perform in front of an audience or finally ask their parents to change their names to Thespis. For older kids, aged 12–18, Drama Kids International offers the DKI Acting Academy, where serious theater kids can expand their speaking, acting, and auditioning skills through exercises and performances.

The Divide—a name derived from the course's position within two counties—offers lush greenery, rolling hills, carefully crafted ponds, and impeccably manicured greens. Golfers of all skill levels are welcomed to blast off dimpled cosmonauts from one of four tee-box locations featured at each hole. After breaking into the vast Bermuda fairways, foresighted fore-shouters can implement a wide range of clubs—the scorecard pencils in a smorgasbord of game changing par 3's and par 5's, many of which are known for culling birdies, eagles, and sleeping snowmen from their respective numerical nests. Off the beaten cart path, The Divide pampers players with pro shop merchandise, driving range facilities, and on-site dining options at The Grill, including snacks, meals, and liquid performance enhancers posing as cocktails.
