As memory cards replaced film reels, many photographers—both professional and amateur—felt befuddled by the new technology. That's where Digital Photo Academy stepped in.

Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.

According to United Airlines' Hemispheres magazine, three perfect days in Denver aren't complete without fly-fishing with Golden River Sports. Writer Rachel Sturtz was quite satisfied with her four-hour lesson, which isn't surprising, considering the the company's sterling reputation with sportsmen of all ability levels. The company's willingness to engage every clients comes from the experiences of instructors like Nick Adler, a self-taught fly fisherman who would have been grateful for guidance from a more experienced angler.

In that spirit, he and his fellow teachers offer four-part fly-fishing lessons, which begin with an introduction to fishing styles and equipment, and follow all the way through to advanced casting and how to read the water. Fly-tying clinics help out total beginners, guided trips take learning fishermen out to various creeks and rivers, and rentals allow schooled sportsmen to embark on their own adventures. An on-site store is loaded with all necessary equipment and accessories and gear for fly fishing and fly tying, including hooks, fly boxes, and a library of DVDs including fly-tying videos and each fish's favorite romantic comedy.

After losing a family member in 2003, Terri Mairley, Udaya Yoga's owner, turned to the art of yoga. She soon discovered a new life purpose. Seeing first-hand both the physical and emotional benefits that yoga could bring to one's life, Terri decided to open up her own studio in 2007. Since then, Udaya Yoga's schedule has grown to include more than 20 weekly sessions. Classes such as Udaya Flow, which focuses on the connection between movement and breathing, are accessible for beginning yogis. In contrast, Power Yoga involves more challenging sequences that are best suited for Gumby and also students with foundational skills.

The academy’s fully enclosed riding range encourages beginners and experts alike to safely practice skills, such as stopping, turning, and swerving—all with the help of the seven men and three women who make up the teaching staff. Courses also incorporate study time in spacious, air-conditioned classrooms, where students commit laws and road signs to memory instead of sticking post-it notes on the inside of their helmet visors.
