In practice rooms with aqua-blue walls and wooden floors, Willow Yoga's passionate instructors guide students toward physical fitness and stress relief. Small groups move through a variety of Hatha yoga classes and yoga Pilates fusion classes. The atmosphere is supportive, and instructors provide modifications of routines so that students can practice within their comfort zones. At the end of each class, a guided relaxation helps participants to find peace and focus.
Instead of modifying one’s natural reaction to danger, YMA Krav Maga & K.O. Bag Fitness builds upon inborn instincts. Its namesake method of self-defense, krav maga, hails from Israel but has sharpened the arsenal of the Secret Service, FBI, CIA, and NYPD. The noncompetitive technique can be boiled down to a central mantra: use the nearest tool for the job to finish the fight as quickly as possible. This means striking attackers in vulnerable areas with whichever limb will land a blow quickly and efficiently—whether that is a fist punching the neck, an elbow or knee to the groin, or a toe tickling an armpit. Students master these tenants of krav maga in group classes, which also teach how to fend off takedowns and weapons by acting out real-life situations. Fitness and the ability to smell danger inherently result from krav maga training, and K.O. Bag workout classes can put some extra oomph into exercise with challenging cardio and strength routines that include boxing and martial-arts kicks.

Dr. Ghassan Abboud believes that if a business is a good member of the community and helps those around it, success will follow—a philosophy he explained during his interview with Naperville Community Television, Channel 17. It was this approach—doing things such as helping people with financing and offering free dental care to those in need on certain days—that allowed Abboud to expand from one 1st Family Dental office in 1996 to 10 offices in the Chicagoland area.
1st Family Dental believes in providing all patients—insured and uninsured—with affordable, high-quality dental care in an appealing setting at the hands of friendly, talented doctors and staff.

Their cosmetic-dentistry services let clients revamp their smiles with Zoom! whitening treatments and let dental implants replace any missing teeth. The 1st Family Dental experts practice dentistry for the whole family, teaching young ones how to clean their teeth without having to smile while walking through a car wash.
