Renew Yoga's certified teachers help students strengthen their cores, perfect their postures, and focus their minds in a variety of group classes. Beginners' yoga builds a strong foundation at a relaxed pace, paying special attention to proper technique, alignment, and breathing. Barkan-method warm Vinyasa simulates a summer afternoon in Calcutta with a heated room, abundance of dynamic poses, and the occasional rickshaw relay. Students of all levels can relax away stress with gentle yoga, and yin yoga encourages them to hold poses for extended periods to develop deep-tissue strength and empathy for stone gargoyles. Classes are generously scheduled throughout the week in the morning, afternoon, and evening hours.
The thought of snow-free winters drew Dr. Sandeep V. Patel back to Daytona Beach from New York City, where he earned his doctorate in dental surgery from New York University. At his practice, My Daytona Dental, he performs a full slate of dental services that he honed while working on the Upper West Side. His specialties range from preventive exams and teeth whitening to veneers, implants and cavity fillings.
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.
Though its name may imply that the shop deals only in boards, Daytona Board Store covers all the ocean-taming essentials you might need. Bouyant watercraft of all sizes cover the space, including surfboards, paddleboards, and bodyboards. The staff also crafts their own boards in the shaping room in back.
And those are just the shop's specialties that don't involve getting wet. Surf camp gives kids a whole new perspective on their time in the ocean and surf teams for adults always lead to at least one participant lobbying for the team to be called the Sharks.
