Shanti Yoga Studio’s experienced instructors lead a variety of fitness-boosting classes peppered over a schedule of several morning and evening sessions. Beginning students can contort their way through Gentle Yoga, a slower-paced, stretch-heavy class, and patrons looking to safely shed a few pounds while sweating to a mirror-perfect sheen can enroll in Hot Yoga, a heated yoga session guaranteed to keep the towel industry afloat indefinitely. Popular among portmanteau buffs, Yogalates combines the stability of Pilates with the flexibility of yoga for a muscle-toning full-body workout. Hatha pairs postures and breathing techniques to help practitioners achieve a healthy balance between mind, body, and artificially implanted alien conscience.
Calling upon backgrounds in the military and law enforcement, Proactive Defense’s state- and NRA-licensed instructors Chris Rainey and Hank Denny train students on what to do should they ever encounter a threatening situation. Utilizing both classroom and live-fire training, Chris and Hank teach everything from basic handling such as reloading and clearing jams, through advanced skills, including drawing from the holster and transitioning through multiple firearms. To support the armed forces, they also organize a scholarship fund for the supplementary training of military personnel who might not be able to otherwise afford it.
Coach Peggy Slater and her team lead classes that get kids moving in a fun environment, whether they're preschoolers focused on play or older students preparing for the competitive team.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
