Visitors to Blue Moon Yoga might imagine that they've stumbled into a piece of history. With a location at the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design Rotunda Building, a historic rotunda building, Carrie Sonneborn uses the cozy environs reflect her overall mission to foster a peaceful, welcoming escape from the stresses of everyday life—which is also championed in her yoga classes. She specializes in Iyengar-inspired yoga, a gentle practice that consists of standing postures and emphasizes a custom proper alignment pose for each student, as well as pranayama, or deep breathing, and relaxation. An avid yoga practitioner for more than two decades, she touts her own health as proof of yoga's benefits. "Yoga and massage are like my fountain of youth,” she says. “I'm more flexible and, in some ways, better shape than I was in my 20s—I'm obviously a convert."

To make yoga accessible to students of all experience levels, Carrie recruits props such as blankets, straps, blocks, and bolsters. She limits her classes to 12 students so that she can personally attend to each one, carefully monitoring their form and offering physical adjustments when needed. The poses in her classes are adapted for each student, so beginners practice the basic form of the pose alongside more experienced pupils, then move into a more advanced version of the same pose.

Miner's Maze Adventureland is peppered with numerous exhilarating and family-friendly attractions, including a new multi-level ropes course where guests can climb and swing at up to three stories in the air. The course features challenges easy through difficult, and participants are fully secured to a track to ensure safety at all times.

Down below, a whistle shrieks as the Rio Golden Railroad train chugs around the park, and children shout as they navigate the park's namesake maze, a 5,000-square-foot, two-level labyrinth that occasionally hosts squirt-gun contests. At the Water Walkerz attraction, people climb inside big, inflatable spheres to zip across the surface of a pool without sinking or bumping into an oil tanker. Both the Magic Mountain Climbing Wall and the Silver Spring Bungee help guests reach new heights, the former with a three-story rock climbing wall and the latter with a bungee cord and a trampoline, along with the Magic Mountain Mine Shaft vertical webbed maze.

In addition to its year-round activities, the park features seasonal activities, including an annual Easter golden egg hunt and kid-friendly Halloween events.

By athletes, for athletes. And for people of all ages and skill levels who are serious about their health. That's how the team behind Red Rocks Boot Camp describes their training programs. But cultivating their signature "no-nonsense, motivating training environment," they say, takes rigorous, focused workouts. It also takes "just the right mix of science and attitude," a phrase pulled from Sir Isaac Newton's Twitter profile.

Between them, founders Cory and Nero have degrees in exercise science, kinesiology, and exercise biology. It's clear they've got the attitude part down, too: the boot camp's photo album sees the occasional costume framing a face as silly as it is sweaty. Most pics, though, show challenging workouts anchored by TRX gear, philosophies like high intensity interval training (HIIT), and outdoor jaunts.

At Sky Yoga, students are encouraged to focus on the journey to health and wellness, rather than an ultimate destination. The supportive instructors meld myriad backgrounds, including theatrical performance and yoga training abroad, and they value the cultivation of a nonjudgmental atmosphere. This diverse team emphasizes their approach to wellness as a journey by helping each yogi practice at their own level, whether they are brand new to the discipline or ready to be challenged with more advanced modifications and reciting the Sanskrit alphabet backwards. Class styles range from slow and restorative stretch sessions to strength building, Vinyasa, and power yoga posture sequences.

Aviation Xtreme's simulators let land-locked folk fly aboard jetfighters and WWI- or WWII-era aircraft in aerial missions or close-range combat. Aspiring aces strap into the cockpit of their simulator and choose from aircraft such as an F-15A Eagle, F-4 Phantom, or P-51 Mustang. After a short instructional video, they take off into the realistic blue yonder on a chosen mission, which can include an anti-ship mission or ground-attack mission. Each simulator is part of a larger computerized network, allowing friends to go head-to-head in a dogfight or team up to carve clouds into self-portraits.
