"Our bodies and minds are closely interconnected. Our state of mind is expressed in physical phenomena, and, conversely, physical phenomena reflect our state of mind," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee, "Nothing is impossible. Keep working on it until it's possible. There is no failure, just the gradual process of success." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30?40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation?including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance. Dahn Yoga is also taught at independently owned and operated franchises called Body & Brain Yoga.

CEO Peter Harvey believes that a quality gym staff must demonstrate more than technical expertise. "Service doesn't only mean showing someone how to do an arm curl," he says. Certified personal trainers develop workouts that zero in on each person?s specific goals, giving clients the skills to pole-vault over impassable plateaus. By steadfastly refusing to hand out fish in favor of putting on master classes in fishing, they help clients become self-sufficient, educating them on fundamentals.

During these one-on-one sessions, and in solo workouts, guests set calories ablaze atop rows of continually updated equipment. Treadmills, recumbent bikes, and strength-training tools line the walls.

Members can also drop in for as many group classes as they can muster. Inside a separate studio, stationary cycles whir in time with galvanizing music, kickboxing strikes arc through the air, and barbells rise with each BodyPump rep. For more meditative practices, Pilates sessions and several types of yoga enhance flexibility and focus.

The founders of Tango Mercurio chose their non-profit's name carefully. Mercury symbolizes connection, which is what they hope to foster both between paired dancers and within their local community. The arts education organization believes that tango dancing transcends boundaries of class, ethnicity, and generation, and therefore can facilitate greater cultural understanding and social cohesion. So in addition to group and private lessons, the studio offers outreach programs and supports the all-volunteer Community Tango Orchestra.

No matter what type of class a student enrolls in, what level they are studying at, or what outreach program they're lucky enough to access, the Tango Mercurio curriculum covers core principles: body awareness, technical proficiency, expressiveness, and, of course, connection. This connection between partners is important because it is both conducive to improvisation and creative expression, and also allows for larger, collaborative expression as a community, something the founders believe is essential to the overall health and stability of societies.

Dr. Green is a board-certified dermatologist with more than 25 years of experience, taking care to personally provide all of the laser and injectable services at Cosmetic & Laser Center of Annapolis and Dr. Green, M.D. Today he fills his center with cutting-edge technology and skin care—perhaps most evident in his chemical peels. Combining aesthetic go-tos such as glycolic and alpha-hydroxyl acids with patented Melaplex and GLX technology, he creates custom elixirs that fight fine lines, brighten complexions, and rejuvenate smiles.

Dr. Green's treatments don't end with chemicals though. With his Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment, Lightsheer Laser Hair Removal and Nd:YAG laser systems he harnesses light to reduce the appearance of acne scars, remove unsightly stubble, and erase unwanted tattoos. IPL photorejuvenation and Thermage CPT Skin Firming & Tightening Treatment treatments take a slightly different approach, yet still manage to improve skin tone by stimulating collagen production in the dermal layers.

The doctors and the staff at Apt Dental Associates have dedicated themselves to educating their guests to prevent oral unpleasantries. Under the guidance of Dr. Amisha Shroff, a graduate of Howard University?s dental school in 2002, they lead clients through step-by-step explanations of their dental health, making sure they understand how to take care of their teeth and the baby guppies that no longer fit in their mouths. When problems do arise, a full slate of dental services puts smiles back in shape, with the dentists judiciously laying out the pros and cons of each procedure, from fillings and sealant applications to bonding, dental implants, and bleaching. The office adds comfort to guests? visits by furnishing the waiting room with cushy leather sofas, a flat-screen TV, and bright green plants.
