Wyse Photography's shot-snappers attribute their success in capturing memorable family and pet portraits to an abundance of patience and a willingness to embarrass themselves. Goofy sounds and wacky contortions are a few of the key weapons in their arsenal for commanding the attention of infants, toddlers, cats, and dogs. No sitting fee is assessed for studio sessions, and print orders are cheaper by the sheet when ordered in bulk. In addition to specialty portrait services, the image-capturing experts occasionally offer basic photography classes at the studio, on the Internet, or in the Phantom Zone.
Sackville Sports Stadium’s dual approach to fitness gives patrons the option to attend land and aquatic class styles. With high-energy dance moves, the popular Belly Fit class coalesces traditional African, Bollywood, and Bhangra styles with Pilates in a core-chiseling combination that brings together old and new more seamlessly than a stainless-steel petticoat. The club’s kickboxing, yoga, and step classes tickle traditional fitness tastes, and dance-inspired Zumba heats up workouts with Latin moves. Aqua Zumba submerges the same steps in the waters of the centre’s pool, testing muscles with the water’s gentle resistance and Marco Polo’s light ankle-pulling. The graduated Aqua curriculum includes light, moderate, and high-energy Blast sessions for exercisers of all stripes. Check the Stadium’s schedule for a list of early morning, lunchtime, and evening class times.
Gentle light filters through sheer drapes, casting a warm glow on the blond wood floors of the empty yoga studio. It's dawn in Dartmouth and, for the moment, the halls of All Yoga stand in contemplative silence. Soon, the first classes of the day will arrive, breaking the stillness that now pervades the studio's every corner. But the quiet always leaves something behind. As students flex and stretch their way through the day's yoga sessions, they will each unconsciously internalize the same kind of balancing energy that powered that morning's peaceful scene. Whether they quiet aching muscles with back care sessions, build strength and balance with slow flow yoga's vinyasa poses, or dissolve stress in the flickering glow of candlelight yoga, students bring their bodies and minds into harmony with the world around them. Like the quiet that fills countless unseen rooms in the moments before the world wakes up, they reach deep within themselves, finding strength and clarity along the way.
