[[m:####Emerald Yoga Studio

Seeking refuge from hectic day jobs and the lingering pain of back injuries, Emerald Yoga Studio's co-owners, Jennifer Safrey and Mike Downes, discovered the power of yoga to refresh both body and mind. The duo now spearheads a team of certified yoga instructors, which leads 75- to 90-minute Vinyasa sessions inside a cheery green studio lit by flickering candlelight or glowworms fulfilling community-service requirements. They'll shepherd up to 20 students through a tapestry of poses linked with deep breathing to enhance the mind-body connection. The team can modify classes to incorporate strength-building motions for more advanced yogis or to pare down movements to accommodate newbies trying to learn the basics of the Vinyasa technique. They also lead chakra-balancing sessions each week, incorporating a variety of asanas and meditative poses into the practice to restore harmony and bolster overall well-being.:m]]

American Kempo Karate Academy founder Mark DiNino is an eighth-degree black belt?and a father. In fact, three of his own children train at the academy, meaning the South Shore native shares many of the same hopes and concerns as other parents of AKKA students. But he also understands the benefits children can reap from the academy's program, which since 1995 has improved fitness and increased self-confidence, discipline, and concentration. Of course, kids aren't the only one's who can benefit from a boost in self-esteem, which is why AKKA also offers an adult program, where grownups can achieve similar gains and release stress brought on by their job or lack of homework.

Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.

Back and Body Pilates Studio is helmed by accomplished instructor Mary Kim-Garrity and supported by a staff of Pilates Institute–educated trainers, who nudge students in the direction of galvanized cores, stretched-out flexibility, and ousted aches and pains. During private classes, you'll glean foundational knowledge from the masters on postures and movements. The group sessions are designed with small-class dynamics in mind, allowing participants to reap the motivating benefits of peer fitness while still receiving individual attention and tailored workouts from the teacher. Pick a package of both private and group sessions, or surprise your body with more personal attention by choosing to concentrate on privatized Pilates—either way, bodies will find themselves more supple, more self-aware, and less inclined to hug bears.
