At the ASA-certified True North Sailing School, students learn to safely navigate vessels through wind and water during 21-hour basic sailing courses. The program blends classroom time with training on the water, and along the way, students learn to steer, name the different parts of the boat, and measure the wind's direction. Other, complementary classes teach sailors about more advanced sailing skills and spring fashion's new lifejackets. And for those looking for a sailing adventure, the school leads group excursions to tropical locales like the Caribbean, where the water temperature is always 75 degrees.

The New York Harbor Jet Ski outpost resides at Newport Marina, on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, just across from lower Manhattan. Here, the company's jet ski experts hand patrons the reins of a brand new rental Kawasaki jet ski, which comes with a wetsuit, riding gear, and a life vest. They then guide their charges out onto the water for aquatic tours of the city, motoring by nearby landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, or the jagged Manhattan skyline. Whatever the destination, riders enjoy top speeds of 60 mph and 160 horsepower?or roughly 16,000 seahorsepower? on their watercraft, so long as they abide by the rules set forth in a brief safety class conducted at the outset of the tour.

Artist Katie Niewodowski says she suffered from nearly debilitating, chronic migraines. That is, until she moved to Montclair, where she discovered holistic healing. This gradually led her into yoga, and as she began to look and feel healthier, she started practicing every day. Perhaps it was this decision that pushed her toward becoming a yoga instructor, leading to her education at the Bikram yoga school and Baron Baptiste's teacher training. She hasn't stopped learning since.

Today, as the owner of SunMoon Yoga, she leads a team of instructors who draw from backgrounds as diverse as acrobatics, poetry, and bending backwards to open doors. All lend their own touch to the studio's all-levels classes, in which they may help students align their chakras or teach them the meanings behind pieces of Sanskrit literature. Whatever their individual approaches, they all lead students sweating through traditional hot yoga, shifting through the fluid poses of vinyasa yoga, or chanting mantras and breathing rhythmically in Jivamukti yoga. Their breath and voices echo across the small studio's wood floors, where during the day, natural light filtering through light blue curtains contributes to the calming atmosphere.
