A reclining figure, drink in hand, catches up on a neglected novel as salty sea breezes fill her lungs in a computer-controlled environment. Inside Breathe Salt & Yoga’s salt room, ivory stucco walls surround guests in a serene, cave-like escape from the seagulls, tourists, and bloodthirsty mermen of the beach. Here, everything is white, quiet, and still.
In much the same way the Victorian leisure class recovered from maladies with trips to seaside resorts or moon colonies, clients at Breathe Salt & Yoga drink up the salutary salt air. The concentrated, pure crystals in the atmosphere flush respiratory systems, sending in waves of healing benefits to counteract the effects of allergies, eczema, and rhinitis
Three treatment rooms afford distinct environments—the quiet relaxation room for subdued contemplation, the children and family room for fostering familial health, and the yoga room, where yogis can practice their art. Yoga practitioners can also opt for floor space in the 85- to 90-degree heated studio, where instructors guide students of all skill levels through Vinyasa-based classes.
Ritz Ballroom guides feet through the varied steps of ballroom and Latin dances in a series of group and private lessons. Led by experienced sashayers, a quintet of 45-minute group classes inaugurates students to each dance's basics, letting patrons get the feel for specific steps, learn proper dancing etiquette, and quickly identify which partners are secretly concealing performance-enhancing roller skates. Up to 20 students glide through the mirrored studio at a time, committing steps to muscle memory while getting hearts and smiles pumping. During the private lesson, dance instructors spend 45 minutes providing one-on-one coaching through troublesome steps and personalize the lesson to target specific weaknesses and improve overall technique. Friday-evening dance parties bolster dance-floor confidence with a studio-wide get-down, allowing the newly fleet-footed to show off their skills and mingle with fellow steppers to a backdrop of popular tunes or a baseline of spontaneous tappers.
The seasoned instructors at Pilates & Gyrotonic Jupiter guide students through machine-assisted Pilates exercises to sculpt limbs and fortify cores. Teeming with nearly 20 weekly classes, the studio’s schedule accommodates pupils of all fitness levels and short division abilities. At one-hour Pilates sessions, groups of up to six students explore Pilates Reformer machines and Wunda chairs, whose spring-fueled tension resists students’ moves to help build strength, balance, and flexibility during that day’s selection from hundreds of muscle-conditioning exercises in the Pilates repertoire. Like taking a carousel ride with a master chiropractor, Gyrtonic workouts revolve around circular movements that align the vertebrae. Weights and pulleys endow Gyrotonic towers with modifiable resistance that flattens abs and shields joints from impact.

Dr. Charles Goldsmith was a successful OB/GYN. His practice was thriving, but his patients weren't. Each of them was worried about weight loss and attempting their own home-brewed ideas of how to drop those last few pounds. Rather than see his patients rely on misinformation, Dr. Goldsmith, soon to become widely known as Dr. G, concocted his four-pronged approach to weight loss.
Targeting appetite, metabolism, diet, and habits, Dr. G's physician-supervised plan works to not only change people's consumption, but change their lifestyles. From five-day cleanses that evict toxins from the body to dietary supplements, Dr. G keeps his clients' systems humming like tuneful supersonic jets. His additional cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and Revitalash, help to ensure clients' exteriors are as pampered as their interiors.
