He also loves the technical aspect of photography and spends his free time experimenting with lights, equipment, and accessories, such as lens toupees, to figure out what steps he needs to take to capture the best image. Artful close-ups, classic portraits, and candid kisses pepper his portfolio, which represents a range of wedding vignettes.

A registered school of the Yoga Alliance, Yoga Rasa takes its name from the Indian word rasa, a term whose meaning encompasses both the experiential "taste or essence of any impression" and the spiritual "nectar of life." With this at the heart of their practice, the teachers of Yoga Rasa strive to nurture clients three dimensionally through services that heal the body, mind, and soul. To do so, they oversee a facility that spans three fitness studios, a massage and spa space, a chiropractor's office, a salon, and a boutique. Each of these spaces aids guests in their exploration of yoga as well as ayurvedic healing, creating a community that encourages lifelong yogic practices.

For 25 years, Texas School of Bartenders has minted professional-grade mix masters in its hands-on classes held in classrooms that simulate real bars. The school's training labs brims with 42 bar stations loaded with up-to-date equipment, including touchscreen registers and serving trays made of hover boards. Full 40-hour courses run throughout the day to accommodate people with designs on pursuing bartending as a career. Covering drink recipes, customer service, and mixing techniques, introductory crash courses throw students into bartending in the same way Spartans taught their children to swim—by throwing them into a shark tank.

Dedicated to propelling students towards their fitness goals?whether those goals include losing weight, toning muscle, or squeezing into child-sized giraffe costumes?he supplements training sessions with regular motivational videos.

AV Flight Simulations' director of operations, Kevin Gabriel, is an experienced pilot, and even he would agree that not everything about contemporary flight training is perfect. Enter the Redbird FMX flight simulator, an FAA-approved advanced aviation-training device with lifelike motions, controls, and graphics. Inside the simulator, students and AV Flight Simulations' certified instructors can freeze situations in real time, giving them the opportunity to analyze problems as they occur. These issues could range from being in a skewed holding pattern to the plane joining a flock of migrating birds. This advanced simulator training can also be a more cost-effective alternative to traditional flight schools on account of rising fuel costs and other expensive expenses. Though students will have to helm a plane eventually, simulators help them get certified with various lessons, including instrument rating, proficiency, and practical tests.
