Gina, the Kundalini yogi teaching at Long Time Sunshine Yoga, says that the most remarkable changes she sees in students are mental rather than physical. "Fear, anxiety, doubt, worry, depression," she says, "[The] biggest transformations are from unhappy and uptight [people] to happy and relaxed." In the classes themselves, she leads students through a series of asana, while incorporating breathing exercises, mantras, and meditation, She plays appropriately soothing music throughout, coaxing her students into a healthy, healing mindset where stresses melt away and they don't freak out that something just melted out of them.
Local thespians Matt McAuley and Richard Vines banded together with the Dysart Community Education Department to conceptualize Ghostlight Theatre on the tenets of entertaining and educating the community with the dramatic arts. The theatre's live productions give members of the community an opportunity to flex their theatrical muscles through acting, designing costumes, and pursuing careers as prop trees. Meanwhile, Ghostlight Theatre’s summer camps prepare budding thespians aged 10–18 for their moments in the spotlight.
Knockout Fitness's instructors lead one-hour, kickboxing-inspired workout routines. They keep classes small, guiding students first through warm-ups and then stretching routines. Then, they hit the bags, quite literally. Each student squares off against a 150-pound heavy bag or an instructor holding pads, practicing fast-paced striking sequences that help build speed, strength, and endurance. Teachers incorporate ab exercises along the way and lead a cool down that's just as important as the warm-up.
Though fitness classes comprise a lot of what they do, the trainers also teach martial arts classes. In addition to boxing and kickboxing sessions, they lead jiu-jitsu training and MMA classes, where athletes mix all their skills together in one match. Every class focuses on developing technique and endurance, and many guests choose to supplement their training with the gym's weight-lifting focused programs, especially if they plan on fighting a barbell.
