As instructors move through the flowing postures of the Vinyasa style of yoga, the studio’s vintage oak floors gently creak in time. The constant movement builds up an internal heat in students' cores, reminiscent of the sunlight pouring through picture windows and reflecting off the yellow walls. These open sessions invite practitioners of any ability, although beginner level and advanced courses gear lessons to more specific needs and mats not quite ready to unroll all the way. Mighty Yoga’s mission is to openly welcome those seeking the gifts of yoga practice, lavished on not only the body in the form of increased flexibility, but also on the mind in the form of increased calmness. That’s why the studio’s instructors constantly repay those gifts by hosting donation-based workshops that give back to local, national, and international charities.
Ithaca Paintball's two fields challenge gamers of all ilk to remain paint-free while chasing friends and opponents through and around a variety of obstacles. Two friends or abstract artists can gear up and traipse through the wooded field, using nature's leafy pillars for cover before ducking behind bunkers or climbing through wooden structures placed throughout the adventurous timberland. Aesthetics-minded competitors can turn friends into sprinting Jackson Pollock paintings by dashing after them in the smaller, seven-person speedball field packed with close-range bunkers and designed for harried action. Ithaca Paintball is open year-round, allowing players the chance to pound the sounds of summer out in the key of paintball explosions or leave the snows of winter covered in a kaleidoscope of color.
Casual Elegance is how I like to describe Atwater. We are serious about our wine, but not snobbish about it. You can come in with friends and have a great tasting and then picnic outside or you can pick our brains and we can educate you about our area and business in depth. We will cater the tasting to your likes.
The corn maze's 3.5 miles of twisting pathways trace a pictorial pattern as they encircle wandering patrons, who usually take 45 minutes to two hours to re-emerge. Customers equipped with a flashlight can up the ante by navigating the agrarian labyrinth in the dark on Friday and Saturday nights or by evading its extraterrestrial caretakers when they descend to prune the walls. T-Burg Mini Golf challenges pintsize putters with an artfully landscaped 18-hole course and a corn maze with 3.5 miles of paths. Entrants of any age can nudge golf balls through sculpted green slopes and around mini hazards while sharpening their botanical know-how with views of more than 2,000 native plants. Like a downed gladiator who suddenly remembers the blowgun in his pocket, the course's 19th Plinko hole can remix player rankings moments before the game's conclusion.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Located in the Waterloo Harbor Campground right on the Seneca River, Fuzzy Guppies makes meandering the river's locks and creeks easy. Those who want to explore a bit further can rent kayaks, canoes, and other equipment to investigate the nearby Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake; Fuzzy Guppies can deliver the watercraft. In addition to renting vessels, Fuzzy Guppies also gives lessons and oversees the Human Waterball. The Waterball gives people the chance to float and run on the water in a ball exactly like a hamster would, if a hamster could pay the rental fee.
