Thirty years ago, Concerned Dental Care was founded with the philosophy that dentists should concern themselves with people first and foremost. The staff's dedication to their patients fueled the practice's growth, and today a team of dentists and hygienists adheres to that original vision as they set about their work tending to teeth at six different offices.
Friendly advice about oral hygiene accompanies each tooth cleaning. Low-radiation digital x-rays help the staff take a closer look at patients' dental health without shrinking themselves down and taking a hike through clients' molars. Then, the doctors work with their patients to address any problems by poring over the practice's sizable array of treatment options to find the right course of action. In addition to regular dental upkeep, the staff can shine up smiles with cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Yogashakti Yoga Center director Mokshapriya Shakti began her yoga practice in 1970, developing experience with hatha yoga as the centering modality was experiencing a spike in popularity in the United States. Mokshapriya used her wealth of knowledge to lead an accredited yoga course for high-school students in Miami, learning how to awaken young people to the benefits of yoga before establishing Yogashakti Yoga Center in New York. At the studio, Mokshapriya taps her teaching know-how to create a curriculum that accommodates beginner, intermediate, and experienced students from all walks of life, from childhood to advanced age. Bolstered by a duo of certified instructors, Mokshapriya helps students unify their mind, body, and spirit animal through uplifting hatha-style yoga classes, emphasizing proper alignment and meditative self-reflection during gently paced sessions.
Pilates is for everyone. This is the idea behind Spencer Pilates Arts, where students of all abilities and ages study the fitness method made famous by Joseph H. Pilates. The method consists of exercises that strengthen the core, tone muscles, and even lengthen the body for those who don't have rubber bones. Originally used by dancers and acrobats due to its many benefits, it's now employed by a wide range of fitness instructors. One of those instructors is Spencer Baker, who started out incorporating Pilates exercises into his job and now shares the core-strengthening method with his members at his center.
Licensed technicians and cosmetologists at Forest Hills Health Center shepherd clients toward greater holistic health with an inside-out approach to beauty.

Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags.
