On the "Our Story" page of Twin Power Yoga's website, owners Ann and Ali express their belief that "by sharing yoga, we share ourselves." They know something about sharing—they're twins, after all, which they believe connects them spiritually as much as it does physically. At their West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens locations, these siblings and their fellow instructors help participants of all experience levels explore their own physical and spiritual relationships to the world around them through Twin Power's style of power yoga. In heated studios with colorful walls and hardwood floors, instructors lead postural sequences that build both strength and cardio conditioning. Between flows, they emphasize meditation, helping practitioners let go of the competitive demands of daily life and pet beagles they already regret teaching to talk. This alternation between highly physical postures and awareness of breath encourages students to listen to their bodies. Classes always end in meditation, giving participants time to sit with whatever feelings their practice awakened.

Founder and lead instructor Jamar has spent more than 25 years empowering students to take control of their lives by sharing his own inner journey through yoga. A certified Kripalu yoga instructor and meditation teacher, Jamar infuses each session of focused breathing and movement with his dedication for seeking the Higher Self. The yoga studio's dark wood flooring, green earth tones, and tranquil lighting cultivate a relaxing environment where students peacefully work their way through the Hatha-style poses paired with meditation and inner reflection, striving to calm the mind's constant nagging about remembering to breathe. The studio hosts more than 30 classes and workshops each month— including Zumba, belly dance, hoop, and tai chi, in addition to yoga—as well as regular presentations from guest speakers. Just beyond the meditation floor lies a metaphysical gallery of books, jewelry, healing stones, and crystals to supplement students' practice.

Despite the strengthened core she’d gained while obtaining a Pilates certification, Jennifer Martin found her balance and flexibility taxed when she attended her first ever hot-yoga class. Now, she heads Bodhi Hot Yoga, where students chart the same progress through Vinyasa-style poses tweaked to cultivate toned muscles and increased balance. Performed in heated studios that encourage detoxification and increased pliancy, hot yoga sessions also help students of all fitness levels promote weight loss, increase vitality, and reduce pent-up stress. Classes take place multiple times daily, with private sessions available upon request.
Sculpted on a 28-acre estuary between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter Dunes Golf Club presents a short par 3 course that features prominent water hazards that come into play on 12 holes. Coastal trade winds routinely knock approach shots off course on their way onto small paspalum greens, a challenge only mitigated by careful shot selection or digging wind-free fairway tunnels. Even with these obstacles, the course's truncated length lets beginners make an enjoyable foray into the game, and more experienced players can work on short game acumen.
