With a friendly crew of chopper operators, Holmes launches scenic tours and hands-on lessons from the open pads at Sportsman Airpark, which is about 40 minutes southwest of downtown Portland. No matter which flight path you choose, the comforts of a Hiller 12-D or 12-E helicopter will be the chopper chariot. The spherical sky-mobile is designed for smooth rides and spectacular views. In flight, feel free to nudge your fellow passenger lovingly as you both admire the patch-worked wine country of Dundee Hills or the water soaked river known as the wet Willamette, depending on your chosen tour.
With years of experience both performing and teaching music, the instructors of The Modern Music Studio help students discover the world of musical self-expression. They strive to make lessons fun as well as rewarding, incorporating music theory, technique, and practical skills such as tuning, restringing, and learning the perfect spot to pat on your belly so it sounds like a real bongo. Students can take lessons in piano, guitar, violin, drums, or voice, and can focus on classical music, jazz, or popular hits. The studio also offers instruments for sale.
Combining the individual attention of personal training with the supportive environment of a group class, CrossFit Awaken's instructors lead workouts designed to provide an accessible challenge for students of all fitness levels. They provide feedback throughout each session, ensuring that everyone practices safe, proper form while allowing attendees to scale the load and intensity of each exercise as they see fit. Each high-intensity workout is designed to help patrons improve their functional movements in every-day life?such as lifting, running, throwing, and jumping?with a combination of exercises to enhance their strength, stamina, and flexibility. And although every workout begins with stretching and a brief warm-up, no two workouts are ever the same. One day, a workout might include squats to help guests travel quickly up stairs, and the next it might include medicine-ball tosses to help them hoist heavy objects.
However, the CrossFit regimen doesn't focus on physical fitness alone. The workouts also promote healthy minds and bodies by helping students push themselves to new heights and develop the mental fortitude needed to make healthy lifestyle changes.
