Students at The Art Room encounter a soothing and supportive environment punctuated by sighs of relaxation and strokes of genius. Friendly instructors guide novitiates through the basics of acrylic painting in the pleasantly spacious studio. Students learn the basic touch required to produce a range of brushed beauties, including fully formed flowers, vibrant bumblebees, and feathery roosters that leap off the canvas. Adults produce a 16"x20" piece over the course of three hours, and special classes for children run two-hours long, resulting in a 12"x16" painting. Students can bring in a few snacks to consume with the non-dominant hand, or tote along some beverages and buddies to amplify the artistic vibe.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.

An avid Bikram-yoga enthusiast, studio-owner and certified Bikram-instructor Debora Fahmy dedicated herself to honing her performance of Bikram’s 26 challenging poses, working through two to three sessions a week for several years. When she was ready, Debora enrolled in an intensive Bikram-yoga training program to prepare herself to share the hot-yoga style with others in her very own studio. Today, inside Core Yoga Orlando's spacious facility, Debora leads students through the 90-minute, 26-posture practice seven days a week, accommodating up to 65 students in each class. She heats the practice space to a balmy 95 to 105 degrees to soften muscles into healing twists and binds and reduce bodies' stores of built-up toxins to mere puddles upon the gleaming hardwood floors. After each session, students may take advantage of the spa-like amenities, which include men's and women's showers, locker rooms, and marble stalls for freshly cleansed spirit animals.
