Founded with the goal of bolstering childhood development via confidence- and fitness-boosting programs, Tricks Gymnastics, Dance, and Swim's team of instructors keeps kids of all ages active and engaged via a host of high-energy classes. The highly skilled and friendly crew works hard to foster a nurturing environment within each class, keeping a close eye on the kids while teaching them new skills via positive reinforcement and recognition of effort. All three locations offer dance classes that introduce preschool Baryshnikovs to the world of movement and grant school-aged pupils a chance to explore various styles ranging from ballet to jazz to ballroom hokey pokey.
Meanwhile, experienced coaches man gymnastics programs designed to combat inactivity and encourage healthy lifestyles. Young ones aged 0?5 burn excess energy and hone flexibility during Tumblebunny classes, and big kids build strength and character thanks to both noncompetitive and competitive programs. A variety of special events include date nights that enable parents to sneak off for an evening of fun while their progeny plays at the gym. The Folsom location further fortifies its kinetic curriculum with swim programs focused on teaching pupils the essentials of water safety and basic swimming techniques. Paddlers grouped into classes by age hop into the crystalline pool, splashing about in waters kept at a balmy 89 degrees to ward off loitering snowflakes.
Angela Harris, a national board certified colon hydrotherapist and instructor with more then 15 years of experience, was first introduced to holistic therapy in college, when she worked at an integrative medical and dental clinic. From there her interest only grew, and she eventually created Wellness of Life, a wellness facility she owns and works at as a certified colon hydrotherapist. During treatments, Angela and her staff rely on a Hydro San Plus system that carries water into the body with one line, and flushes waste out into a second that works discreetly and without odor. Each one-hour session includes up to 45 minutes of treatment (the rest of the time being for preparation and for the discussion of agreeable topics such as "best rollerblade brands"). Afterward patients have reported feeling relief from bloating, headaches, fatigue, and a number of other ailments.
After turning to Bikram yoga to ease her chronic hip, shoulder, and hand pains, seasoned yogi Patty Gray realized a dream in bringing this healing practice to her own community. At Bikram Yoga Granite Bay, she leads a diverse team of certified instructors?which includes a dietitian, a marathon runner, and a former DJ?that helps students of all ages and abilities reach their fitness goals with 26 dynamic postures. These postures, or asanas, include both seated and standing positions and are performed in the detoxifying humidity of a 105-degree room. During each 90-minute sweat session, instructors help students to let go of their competitive nature while improving their strength, balance, and ability to fold themselves neatly into a suitcase.
Boarding On The Lake is positioned right off Folsom Lake, a short trot from the beach and located near hundreds of miles of trails. This prime location lets horse owners hop atop their horses and be on the trail in minutes, rather than spending hours hitching up a trailer to transport their steed to a spot with good riding. Dedicated staffers keep the stalls, covered paddocks, and other facilities shipshape, and Boarding On The Lake?s owners are onsite as often as possible to ensure that everything is working smoothly. They've also set up a picnic area where guests can sit down and eat their lunch, instead of grazing on the high-quality alfalfa and grass reserved for the horses.
