Students who want to ride one of Equestrian Enterprize's trusty steeds don't have to wait until their first lesson to meet the animals. The staff is so fond of its four-legged instructors that each one gets its own page on the website. Guests can meet Isiah, the Percheron gelding whose long white eyelashes will steal your heart, or RJ Rabbit, the 10-year-old quarter pony who fancies himself the barn clown. These introductions are engaging, but riders won't really know the team until they visit the picturesque facility, where an indoor arena and four outdoor riding rings sit flanked by lush trees and rugged trails. In this setting, teachers call on their competition experience to instill students with the skills to handle horses in the english, western, dressage, or driving disciplines. For seasoned riders or unkempt centaurs, the equestrian specialists also offer boarding services with custom feeding programs, ample turnout, and regular stall cleaning.
The experienced trainers at European Soccer Academy believe that positivity and commitment are key ingredients for inspiring their players, who range from three-year-olds to teens. Through a medley of individual and team services, they strive to plant the seeds of a lifelong love for the game. They practice with all comers, regardless of initial ability, and motivate kickers with safe and constructive teachings that are meant to hone motor skills while building muscle.
During 10-week team-training programs, academy experts work with coaches to tackle collective weaknesses and augment strengths. Employees personalize their exercises for one-on-one practice sessions, while summer camps instill goal-scoring skills with themed activities. Trainers can even attend matches and compose a game day evaluation, which suggests future team strategies such as painting the ball black to recruit muscly bowlers.

The practitioners behind Kula Yoga & Wellness chose Kula—the Sanskrit word for "community” and “family"—as the moniker for their studio. The choice reflects the yogis’ desire to cultivate a community at their center dedicated to the physical and spiritual well-being of others. The staff consists of certified yoga instructors and massage therapists, along with a meditation guide, life coach, and nutrition counselor. Each professional assists pupils and clients in improving their health, both physically and mentally.
Visitors to the center can explore floatation meditation, a unique sensory-deprivation experience that allows each client's mind to enter a wakeful dream state directed by Richard Linklater. The tanks are filled with 10 inches of water and 900 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt, which allow clients to remain buoyant while helping extract toxins from the body. In addition to their regular classes, Kula Yoga & Wellness also offers workshops and events featuring guided meditation experts and yoga with live music.
