The black-belt instructors of Warhorse Karate Jiu Jitsu believe that developing character on the inside matters as much as learning to defend oneself on the outside. That?s why throughout their classes, they emphasize principles such as modesty, integrity, and perseverance to help pupils overcome the conflicts that can?t be resolved through traditional coup d??tat. For the times when those skills are needed, they prepare students by training them in in a mix of styles such as Kenpo karate and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Through progressive classes for kids as young as 6 through adults, instructors drill participants in both unarmed and armed self-defense. For those interested in developing defense skills for the ground, they teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This focused approach, along with its sponsorship of charitable organizations such as the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation, has won the academy many accolades. Warhorse Karate Jiu Jitsu has won Krem?s The Best of Spokane contest in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 in addition to taking the top spot in the Inlander Best of the Inland NW awards.

After twisting their bodies through various positions in a sweltering hot studio for more than an hour, yoga practitioners at Zest Hot Yoga would probably welcome a slap in the face by a snowman. Luckily, with Lake Pend Orielle just a short walk away, it doesn't have to come to that. Zest encourages its clients to cool off with a dip in the lake after bending their bodies into 26 different Bikram yoga postures or various Vinyasa positions. And if that doesn't sound appealing, Zest welcomes practitioners in need of a cool breeze to venture to the side patio garden or lower-rear terraced garden overlooking the creek.
Such intense heat may sound drastic, but it helps increase flexibility while flushing out toxins. The hot yoga classes can also help people tone their muscles, strengthen their spines, and quiet their minds.
Celeste Jara loved intense cardiovascular exercise. It helped her release all the stress caused by her work in marketing and public relations. But when she started having health problems, a doctor told her to give up running and cardio-kickboxing. That's when she found hot yoga—an intense workout that sidesteps the bodily wear and tear associated with traditional aerobic exercise. As her health improved, her entire life-course took an inspirational turn. She went on to practice Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga and Bikram yoga—two styles that combine heat with challenging poses and motivational instruction. Now she draws on these roots while teaching at The Yoga Room: a balmy studio where temperatures range from 75–95 degrees, which keeps muscles loose, prevents injuries, and makes taffy so much easier to chew.
Founded in 1968 by the county’s first physical therapist, North Idaho Physical Therapy quickly made a name for itself by helping local athletes, loggers, and miners get back to doing what they do best. More than four decades later, the center has expanded to three locations and taken on a team of medical specialists whose expertise ranges from massage therapy to chiropractic. Though their specialties are diverse, the staff members share one important thing in common: They all emphasize individual care through customized treatment programs. These programs may include rehabilitative therapies, soothing ashiatsu massages, or strength training in preparation for long days of logging or sawing slow desktop computers in half.
