Hot air swirls around Bikram Yoga’s studio, heating limbs and relaxing tense muscles as students sink deeply into their practice’s 26 postures. During 90-minute sessions, a Bikram-certified instructor leads classes through a consistent routine of standing and seated poses mixed with two breathing exercises. In the space’s equatorial temperatures, students of all fitness levels burn calories, strengthen muscles, and eject perspirable toxins as instructors offer encouragement and personalized modifications. In addition to bringing a yoga mat and towel from home, students should prepare for class by drinking enough water to float a flock of rubber duckies.
Daytona Yoga & Wellness Center's certified massage therapist, Ron Ghaffarian, pampers muscles and minds with soothing Thai yoga massage sessions. Thai yoga massage integrates the active aspects of yoga with a variety of healing techniques, such as acupressure, yoga poses, gentle twists, and meditation. As the massage therapist rhythmically kneads muscles and tendons while performing concentrated energy work, the body releases stress, tension, and agitated spirit animals.
Phantom Fireworks first burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. Today, the company lights up backyards of America from coast-to-coast with more than 1,200 permanent and temporary locations.
Much like its products, Phantom?s employees frequently take to the skies. They travel around the globe in search of the industry's latest ground and aerial displays before returning home with rockets, missiles, fountains, and aerial repeaters. From there, an extensive in-house testing program takes over, checking each item's safety before it?s sold to the public.
That testing program is just one of Phantom?s pillars of safety. The company also holds memberships with multiple pyrotechnics organizations, and it offers customers additional information about fireworks laws and history through its Fireworks University.
The menu at Aavtar Indian Cuisine keeps going and going: 10 lamb dishes, biryani, six tandoori delicacies, and page after page of chicken, vegetarian dishes, fish, and chutneys. Naan sails out of the restaurant's clay oven stuffed with potatoes or topped with garlic and cilantro. It then meets up at the table with tandoori shrimp, chicken tikka kebab, and homemade mango ice cream.
Tucked inside Daytona Beach Resort, Terra Acqua Day Spa shelters weary travelers and residents from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. From inside private treatment rooms, Hawaiian-made candles fill the air with the intoxicating scent of coconut as skilled staff members ease tension with soothing massage techniques. Body scrubs from local vendors gently whisk expired cells from corpuses, and imported creams and body wraps pare down hazardous curves. The pampering continues outside on the ocean deck, where cabana-shaded massage tables pair sessions with fresh air and the coos of relaxed conch shells.
Tim Cameron knew he loved watersports when he realized he could walk on water?sort of. He actually water-skis barefoot, a sport that he picked up after an 8-year stint in the world of motocross. Since his initial affair with aquatic thrills, he's continued to quench his thirst for adrenaline through various other watersports?including kneeboarding?and turned his passion into a business with Triple X Surf and Skim in 2004.
Today, there are two Triple X Surf and Skim retail stores in the sunshine state, where patrons can visit to pick up boards and accessories or learn how to ride the waters. People of all ages and skill levels?from adrenaline-junkie kids to 75-year-old seniors who've never set food on a board?partake in surfing lessons that take place right outside of the Jacksonville Beach location. All lessons maintain a five-to-one student-teacher ratio, so participants can enjoy individualized attention from their instructors, some of whom surf competitively and habitually ditch Surfaholics Anonymous meetings.
