Neither instructor at Salsannati expected a career in dance. Ivana, a native of Croatia, only started dancing in 2004; Frederic, on the other hand, started when he was just 8 years old and spent his teenage years teaching others but never enlisted in any formal training. Their mutual passion is what fuels Salsannati, where they teach beginners and advanced dancers the art of salsa. Classes typically center around basic steps, turns, and footwork combinations as foundations for more advanced moves.

Mark Chenoweth's first picture was done the old-fashioned way: he loaded film into a 35-millimeter camera, snapped the picture, and developed it himself. That was two decades ago, and he's been working as a professional photographer ever since, preserving cherished moments at weddings and conducting senior-portrait shoots.

The technological advantages of today's cameras make them much more user-friendly than the one responsible for Mark's maiden photograph, but many casual photographers don't use their equipment to its fullest potential. Mark founded Fotoskool to help less experienced photographers better understand the trade with a trio of classes designed for beginners and intermediates learning to wield a DSLR or point-and-shoot camera. The Fotoskool Basics class edifies beginners about the fundamental precepts of DSLR operation, such as how to hold the camera and adjust shutter speed. More experienced pupils can enlist in the Fotoskool Next Level class, which focuses on working cameras in manual mode, or the Fotoskool Edit class, during which they will learn to lighten or darken pictures, change file formats, and remove the silver splotches left by poltergeists in the background.

Together, they can teach everything from the classic ballroom and Latin dances to the fitness-focused belly dancing, Zumba, and trophy-lifting classes. Classes are foundational with a focus on movement, direction, and basic concepts of partner dancing. From getting one's start in Latin dance with salsa and bachata to basic ballroom, classes have a specific focus on teaching novice dancers steps, timing, and connection to build confidence on the dance floor and, in some cases, prepare students for more advanced training.

To program director William Brashear and his team of teachers, yoga is a spiritual journey that begins within while a person is creating a bond with humanity. They inspire students of all ability levels to seek this inner peace in their classes, which cover a variety of styles. Options range from Mysore—a meditation-focused discipline—to power yoga—a vigorous Vinyasa-based course—to gentle yoga—a slower-paced rehabilitative class. To zero in on students' specific areas of concern, they lead one-on-one sessions, helping them master their techniques and learn Sanskrit words such as, "asana" which means "pose," or more commonly, "Can you please help me? My leg is stuck behind my head."

In addition to yoga, the school provides healing services, including Ayurvedic Thai yoga massage, in which a trained practitioner gently pulls arms and legs and twists torsos and shoulders in an effort to loosen the muscles and release stress. It also hosts yoga- and meditation-centric events and organizes calming retreats to locales such as Leeland Valley.

Gary Hopkins can divide his mid-20s in two parts: the time before he discovered self-healing, and the time after he discovered self-healing. Before, overwhelming stress and overworking caused him to suffer from anxiety, insomnia, spinal misalignments, and gout. Then, he started meditating, practicing tai chi and energy healing, and taking natural supplements. Not only did these practices help remedy his ailments, but they also led him to a new career as an intuitive healer. Continuing these studies into his 30s, he added such holistic healing methods as Thai massage and reflexology to his regimen.

For more than 10 years, he’s shared his knowledge through a private practice and at Light Path Discovery Center. He is dedicated to helping others conquer physical, psychological, and emotional issues with carefully honed skills and several bodywork methods he developed on his own. For those unable to visit him personally, Gary has penned two books— The Master Within and Axiatonal Integration —that guide readers as they attempt to unlock their happiness, which is usually kept in a safe and buried under their childhood home.
