Although Dr. Hangama Sadat offers a full range of family and cosmetic dental treatments, basic exams always come first. A graduate of New York University Dental School, Dr. Sadat starts on the basic side of things to get an overall understanding of each patient's dental health before discussing solutions for specific dental concerns. Among them, laser whitening treatments gently lift away set-in enamel stains and cosmetic veneers cover up damaged, chipped, or broken teeth. Preventive health is also a main focus at Spectrum, as basic cleanings scour plaque and backup candy reserves from between teeth and under gum lines.
More akin to a small, self-contained town than a fitness center, each of Spectrum Fitness’s seven locations kowtows to packed schedules and multitasking parents. A slew of classes arranges social body blasting—customers can tone their torsos with squats, presses, and curls in a BodyPump barbell class or sweat in spinning classes atop a stationary bike equipped with pursuit-style handlebars, adjustable resistance, and a front-mounted E.T. Members of Spectrum Fitness can swing by its Central location and trot on the treadmill until dawn. They can drop off their tykes at the childcare center and take a yoga or kickboxing class. And they can follow a swim by basking in the bronzing light of the tanning bed before sauntering up to the Pro Shop for smoothies.
The staff takes great pains to accommodate newcomers of all ages, levels, and car-stacking abilities. Certified personal trainers concoct customized fitness regimens during solo and group training sessions, and Silver Sneakers and water aerobics classes bring seniors into the fitness fold.
Yoga Bliss elongates muscles and empowers equilibrium through a range of tailored stretching sessions, with several frequently offered course types and more than 35 sessions on the weekly schedule. The Ashtanga Primary Series, derived from meditative Hatha yoga, bolsters spiritual as well as spinal alignment, and hot yoga melts away stressors including toxins, muscle tension, and ice sculptures shaped like childhood bullies. Neophytes begin their evolution into veteran yogis with Basics seminars, and the gentle/restorative session's slow motions and measured breathing accommodate aspiring back-benders with injuries sustained during previous workouts or backyard wrestling matches. Students can stretch out on their own mat or rent one from the studio for an additional $2.
The certified teachers at TC Dance Club International recognize that people dance for all kinds of reasons; accordingly, they structure different programs to meet the needs of everyone from casual dancers hoping to light up the dance floor at an upcoming party to perfectionists in the pursuit of lifelong grace. Their lessons incorporate a multitude of styles, including tango, merengue, foxtrot, and rain dances. On Friday nights, students can practice what they've learned in dance parties, which are set to premade mixes in a room with dimmed lights and an open bar.

Beneath the purple-and-white-striped walls, ladies of all ages and fitness levels twirl around poles and sink seductively into chairs during The Perfect Poleforma’s alternative fitness classes. Instructors lead groups of up to 10 women through beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes. The classes start with basic pole spins and leg-strength exercises and graduate to swinging upside down, hanging onto the pole with just the inner thighs, and climbing flagpoles to add stars as new states are discovered. They also conduct parties for bachelorettes and birthday girls, allowing groups of friends free rein of the ceiling-mounted poles.
At Mulananda Yoga, Louis LaVie and his troop of enthusiastic instructors strive to foster an atmosphere that embodies the studio's name—mula, the Sanskrit word for "root, source," and anada, which means "pure happiness." They blend focused breathing and conditioning through yoga poses to help their clients reach inner peace and happiness while also boosting their outer strength. Their classes explore yoga’s capacities to heal and uplift beyond the standard sun salutations. They crank up the tunes during hot Vinyasa classes and focus on meditation, philosophy, and chanting in Swan River yoga. During symbiotic yoga, patrons learn to cultivate trust and connections via partner acrobatics and games of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board. Further soothing spirits, the studio's holistic healers aim to relieve stress and tension with reiki and Thai yoga massage.
