Natural light spills through a large window in Inspire Yoga's practice space to warm and illuminate students as they balance on bare feet and gracefully sweep poses. These students work their way through the studio's four signature classes, which offer challenges for newcomers and experienced practitioners alike. Beginners often start with Spark, mastering the foundations of vinyasa flow with poses that can even challenge those already familiar with yoga. Renew's slow-flow hatha postures also lay the groundwork for further practice, letting students stretch away tension and boost flexibility.
Inspire Yoga's schedule also includes Empower and Inspire, two classes that showcase the movement-based vinyasa tradition. Empower builds upon the foundations learned in lower-level classes, equipping students to transition between intermediate and advanced poses. The studio's most advanced class, Inspire challenges even seasoned students, integrating breathing exercises, physically challenging poses, and mind-centering meditations into a single practice.
In addition to hosting classes seven days a week, Inspire Yoga also brings workshops and advanced training events to the community, hosts private small-group sessions, and offers life coaching.
DFW Shooters Academy's instructors train out of outdoor ranges in the area and all instructors are former police officers.

Check showtimes online for all the movies screening throughout the summer.
In the 1950s, Lewisville Lake served as a municipal water source for Dallas. Over the next half-century, it evolved into a popular summertime attraction, even hosting a number of large-scale bass-fishing tournaments. In 2011, Lewisville Lake added a new distinction: it became the office of Boomerang Boat Club. Dedicated to getting people on the water at a low cost, the company rents its fleet of pontoon/deck boats and ski boats for full- or half-day excursions.
Lewisville Lake's waters, fed by the Trinity River and sustained by the Lewisville Dam, provide a placid canvas for boating. Before disembarking from Westlake Park, boaters can shimmy into life jackets and load the deck with snacks, provided they are not packaged in glass, grilled on board, or pilfered from a child's sand castle. As passengers settle in, convivial dockhands provide a basic orientation and answer any questions. Upon request, they also outfit boats with tubes and ski vests.
Big Boar Tactical doesn't train its clientele with typical stationary, paper targets.

These instructors can also help customers obtain concealed-handgun licenses or master the use of various other firearms.
