  • Forever Om Yoga
    Borrowing its name from an ancient meditative chant, Forever Om Yoga turns up the heat on classic Vinyasa flows for calorie-burning, mind-clearing workouts. Aside from warming the studio to between 78 and 98 degrees Fahrenheit, a high-tech heating system cleans and recirculates air with an infrared light, facilitating easier, deeper breaths. In each 75-minute class, Yoga Alliance- and Baptiste-certified instructors lead groups through either gentle, 78-degree Vinyasa flows or hotter, high-energy flows inspired by Baptiste power yoga. The basic yoga class features the essential Vinyasa poses, and a class focused on athletic recovery incorporates therapeutic stretching and twists to help repair sore or strained muscles and prevent future injury during all-night Twister marathons.

  • Little Legends Soccer Academy
    When Director Tony Youhanna and George Solomos founded Little Legends Soccer Academy in 2009, they found themselves filling a niche. At the time, the North Shore offered no quality soccer coaching for youngsters interested in the game. Their first session was a success, drawing thirty eager players, but it didn't prepare them for the popularity that was to come. Since that day, the academy has ballooned: more than 300 children ages 24 months to 8 years old are currently enrolled in its various programs. Each clinic helps kids build soccer fundamentals such as foot skills, passing, and receiving in an environment that encourages fun and teamwork. Very young players—24 to 36 months—start off in the Born to Kick program, which couples soccer skills with mind-nurturing topics such as shapes, colors, and vocabulary. As children get older and their skills progress, they move into clinics aimed at more advanced techniques, eventually putting them to work in games. The academy's Space program—standing for speed, agility, core, and endurance—does away with the soccer ball altogether, focusing instead on exercises to improve footwork, speed, and balance.

  • Citadel Theatre Company
    Citadel Theatre Company traverses the peaks and valleys of human experience with a diverse repertoire of dramatic, comedic, contemporary, and classical works. In February, playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer hems theatergoers into the seams of a sputtering marriage during Sirens, which was showcased at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American Plays. After Sam and Rose build their entire relationship on the financial fortune of a chart-topping song, their ties begin to fray as Sam looks up an old flame by scouring social-media websites and visiting a retirement home for firefighters. Rose, in an attempt to yank Sam out of his rut, schedules a romantic cruise for the couple, where mythological temptation further illuminates Sam's predicament. Citadel Theatre's 150-seat tiered setup regales guests with optimal sight lines, and the venue's thrust stage allows actors to test the crowd's temperature with their big toe prior to cannonballing into each performance.
