Drawing on her extensive knowledge of equine care from apprenticeships with top area professionals, Hessy Derman has manned Chessfield Farm's 23 acres of stalls and stretches for more than 15 years. Accommodating beginning and advanced riders alike, lesson programs pair pupils with school or student-boarded steeds for half-hour galloping sessions based on the closest matching horseshoe size. Equestrians trot about Chessfield Farm's custom built and professionally landscaped grass paddocks, 80'x120' indoor ring, and 100'x200' outdoor ring. Heated viewing lounges and shaded picnic areas overlooking each ring house spectators and technique-stealing camels in disguise. Chessfield Farm remains open seven days a week, extending its hours of operation into weekday evenings to oblige student schedules. Trainees should call ahead to schedule their sessions.

When Paul Melella, Jr. was seven years old, he was the target of a neighborhood bully. Eventually, Paul’s mother enrolled him in martial arts classes. For six months, Paul secretly studied the art of tae kwon do, until one day, he finally had the courage to stand up to his bully. Not only did the boy stop picking on Paul, they became good friends. In fact, Paul was even the best man at his wedding years later, where he helped out by cutting the cake with one swift roundhouse kick.
Paul established the Carmel branch of United Martial Arts Centers in 1996 to help others attain the same self-confidence and lifelong benefits that he found practicing martial arts as a child. Today, Paul is just one of UMAC's many professional instructors who lead programs for children, adults, and families at five different locations. Despite their different addresses, each of UMAC's locations sports the same positive atmosphere and spirit that comes from students working together toward a common goal.
It’s a good bet not every dentist in the world knows how to keep your heart from stopping. But Dr. Joseph Zaky’s more than 20 years of experience boast that level of training. Postgraduate courses in such advanced techniques as restorative and cosmetic dentistry have spilled into areas such as cardiac life support, allowing the doctor to beautify patient smiles while guarding them against unforeseen circumstances.
In dental practice alone, Dr. Zaky excels at rebuilding and reshaping smiles. In addition to their function of chewing and hissing at burglars, teeth are load-bearing structures that support the face and, to a great extent, determine the face’s overall appearance. Understanding this concept, Dr. Zaky applies his keen eye for facial structure and the aesthetics of the smile, alongside his specialties in dental implants and restorations, to help to improve outward appearances. At the same time, conscientious general dentistry staves off timeless dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.
"Liberation Yoga is founded on the belief that every human being can and should be free." This motto sums up the philosophy of Liberation Yoga, while the center's practices put the motto into motion. Here, students can free themselves of stress and tension during classes that incorporate the mind-body-spirit connection through deep breathing, core-strengthening moves, and meditation. By practicing the ancient technique, students can also lower their risk of heart attacks and relinquish dependencies while increasing their self-awareness and sense of community with other practitioners. These benefits extend outside of classes as well. In the Wellness Center, visitors can further their healing during massage and reflexology sessions, reducing muscle aches and calming their minds from mentally cursing their muscle aches.
As a police captain in Yonkers, Patrick McMahon oversaw the fitness training of younger officers, designing workouts around a simple credo: “plan your work and work your plan.” After retiring, he bonded with trainer John Moljo over their shared love of kettlebells, and they decided to pool their talents and knowledge to create Kettlebell Inferno LLC. Integrating elements from Spartacus exercises and Tabata training, John and Patrick carefully shaped their workouts to be simple, vigorous, and safe. No two muscles are worked back to back, and sessions incorporate the whole body, all planes of motion, and every trigonometry concept tested on the SAT. Accompanied by a driving soundtrack, instructors push students to new heights and keep things fresh by adding surprising, varied exercises.
