Brooke Riglin, owner of Karmady Yoga & Massage LLC, is extremely hands-on with her business. Of the 41 weekly yoga classes held at her newly opened studio, Brooke teaches more than 30. Every one of these classes is open to everyone, because Brooke helps her students modify each pose to fit their ability levels and specific goals. In addition to yoga, the studio offers nine different types of massage, each of which is administered by a professional, certified massage therapist who is a former pro thumb wrestler.
Historic City Park Golf Course has occupied its 25-acre parcel on the northern tip of City Park Lake since 1926. Comprised exclusively of par 3s and 4s, the nine-hole layout keeps distances manageable—its longest hole is 377 yards—so beginners can enjoy the course as much as their longer-driving counterparts. Though the course may be short on yardage, it's long on history as one of a select group of golf courses recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, preserving it from destruction so that future generations will one day be able to use robot caddies to play on those same fairways.
