Robbie Michelle Short holds three titles at Half Moon Yoga: owner, certified instructor, and spiritual chef. She tries to whip up "spiritual food" to accompany each of her lessons, dispensing sage quotations or morsels of philosophy that inspire her students. This emphasis on personal peace infuses the entire studio, where the curriculum incorporates a meditative element into numerous yoga disciplines. Teachers weave stories of serene imagery during Blissful Flow classes and segue from ashtanga's salutations to dynamic poses without sacrificing introspection. Their workshops—which include seminars for beginners and walking meditation through Aspen Grove Park—also balance the focus between physical and emotional training.
The studio accepts yoga students of all skill levels and supplies guests with the necessary props, mats, and sunglasses for auras that glow too brightly. In addition to their classes, the staff hosts a variety of energy treatments, from reiki to Indian champiassage—a soothing type of bodywork for the neck, back, and shoulders.
Fairways on Spencer Creek's player-friendly course takes duffers careening across 2,632 yards of water-kissed fairways for a nine-hole pin-hunting exhibition. The petite par 33 caters to players working on their short game with four par 3s and four par 4s, and the 463-yard par 5 fifth hole ensures drivers and 3-woods don't consider collectively bargaining for more shifts out of the bag. PGA-certified aces shake rust off swings with private and small-group lessons, and a putting green helps putters calibrate their strokes before rounds.

A-Game Skate Academy’s staff of experienced skating instructors helps pupils perfect their gliding form year-round from the indoor rink at A-Game Sportsplex. Though the teaching approach varies based on skaters’ age and experience, the skating curriculum begins with classes that focus on basic balance and posture before pupils advance to more challenging material in later classes, such as hockey-specific skills, figure-skating jumps, and how to parallel-park a zamboni.
A-Game also offers many open-skate sessions, allowing guests to practice their form on their own time. Before taking to the ice, skaters can peruse the pro shop for skate guards, blade covers, gloves, and other necessities or rent out a pair of skates so they don’t have to fashion their own out of a cowboy boot and a machete.
Since 1998, ProCamps Worldwide has bridged the gap between pro athletes and their fans with a variety of instructional youth camps and fantasy camps for adults. More than 100 professional and Olympic gold-medal athletes have lent their wisdom during camps conducted across the country. For instance, the NBA's leading scorer, Kevin Durant, dishes details on his skills at a camp in Oklahoma, and Super Bowl champion and Packers linebacker Clay Matthews teaches the careful choreography of backfield disruption in Wisconsin. At fantasy camps, John Calipari and Bill Self—the two coaches who squared off in 2012's NCAA title game—give campers tours of their programs' hallowed halls.
