Over the course of three days, 51 films, various workshops, informative industry panels, dynamic parties, and live music coalesce to form the fourth annual Lady Filmmakers Film Festival. The festival both celebrates women’s contributions to the independent-movie industry and raises awareness about pertinent social issues facing women around the world. Participants can immerse themselves in films such as Bryce Dallas Howard’s When You Find Me and Olivia Wilde’s Free Hugs, and get cultured about being cultured in seminars on topics such as casting and producing scripts written entirely in Klingon. On the last day of the festival, the producers will bestow cinematographer Amy Vincent with the 2012 Moving Image Award, honoring her achievements in shooting films such as Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan. After spending the day learning and viewing films, guests can mingle at parties replete with hors d'oeuvres and live music; wine will be served on Friday and Saturday, and champagne will be added on Sunday.

The instructors at Waterworks Aquatics believe anyone can learn to swim, no matter their age. This belief drives each instructor-led session, accommodating everyone from babies as young as 3 months old who are just getting acquainted with the water, to older children learning more advanced strokes and adults learning to swim for the first time. The instructors focus on teaching stroke techniques that utilize muscle memory and rhythms that are easy to grasp, while cultivating a fun, relaxed environment to help reduce students' anxiety. They lead private, semi-private, group, and Parent and Me lessons, all of which move at the pace of the swimmers' abilities. Beyond bestowing swimmers with efficient form, the lessons also help them stay safe in the water by teaching them how to control their breathing, reduce unnecessary movement, and stay completely still in the presence of pool krakens to avoid begin seen.
With top-of-the-line air purifying equipment and special floors, Hot 8 Yoga debunks the myth that hot-yoga studios are stuffy and smelly. Its filtration system scours air with UV rays before pumping oxygen into the classroom, keeping the studio fresh and germ-free, and students breathing easily. Beneath yogis' feet, ploy-extruded matting keeps the air smelling sweet by wicking away moisture and odors atop shock-absorbent PVC floors.
These measures enhance pupils’ practice during more than 100 weekly hot-yoga classes. With the heat cranked at varying degrees to boost flexibility, metabolism, and detoxification, sessions range from classic hot yoga to yoga sculpt, which incorporates free weights. Yoga barre, on the other hand, combines ballet, yoga, body sculpting, and cardio for a comprehensive workout that makes you sweatier than wearing a vinyl spacesuit in a sauna.
