Purpose Yoga’s instructors know how difficult it can be to find time during a busy day for yoga’s quiet and concentration. During lunchtime three days a week, they host a 45-minute session where visitors can recharge their batteries and enjoy lunch options such as veggie or tuna wraps. At their other weekly sessions, the teaching team leads up to 60 students of all levels through power, Hatha, and hot yoga. Classes range from slow-paced beginner Hatha sessions to sunrise yoga and one-hour full-body workouts with the studio’s temperature cranked between 90 and 95 degrees.
When they aren’t deepening their visitors’ meditative states, the instructors prep the next generation of yoga gurus during a nine-month teacher-training program that explores 71 yoga poses, the Sanskrit language, anatomy, and more. After sessions, co-owner and licensed massage therapist Jessica Hardisky further relaxes muscles with massage styles such as Thai yoga, prenatal, and hot stone.
Golf differs from most sports in that it can be taken up at a young age and played for a lifetime. According to certified Master Golf Instructor Hank Oakes, becoming proficient at the sport takes time and patience?impossible to achieve over one lesson or round. In fact, Hank believes the threshold stands at six weeks, enough time for the instructor and student to sufficiently cover every facet of the golf swing from addressing the ball to backswing. Whether first time players or veterans with deeply ingrained habits, students concentrate on one part of the swing before moving on to the next motor skill?a methodical approach that produces more consistent ball flight, more sunk putts, and more divots taken home for dinner.
