At East Meets West Yoga Center, a group of trained yoga teachers guide both adults and kids on a path toward personal self-discovery. Working under the philosophy that all individuals are unique and yoga is not a one-size fits all activity, teachers aim to honor their students? differences and cater classes to their needs. Sessions draw on Hatha, Vinyasa, and Kundalini techniques and the schedule includes specialized sessions for seniors, moms-to-be, and children.
CrossFit training held to the Highest Standard. We want you to be good at all things, to surpass the goals that elude you, to find the 'I must' to replace the 'I cants' in your life. You will find no mirrors here, no iPods, no 'machines' that limit your learning or your potential.
A panel of certified instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your duo of private lessons, or fly solo and dance with your instructor and a knowing smirk. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons are ideal for a range of potential students, from the disgruntled pedestrian looking to never get served again to the fledgling fitness-seeker looking for a fun new way to get shipshape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few new swing steps for your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, the lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits.
With the ubiquity of Pilates, it's easy to forget that the exercise form was pioneered by its namesake, Joseph Pilates. For those who forget, Church Street Pilates is there to remind them. The studio pays homage to the father of the fitness movement by incorporating the history of Pilates into each of its classes.
Sessions adhere strictly to Joseph Pilates's vision of achieving overall wellness through balance and coordination. Students perform sequences of exercises while coordinating their breathing and controlling their core muscles. This strengthens the midsection, tones limbs, and even lengthens the body without swapping out bones for rubber bands.
Free time and creative vision don't necessarily strike at the same time, which is why the team members at pottery-painting studio Kiln & Co. don't expect everyone who walks in the door to arrive with a fully formed idea. This is why they built Inspire Bar, an area with iPads, books, and magazines to encourage creative ideas. Those ideas are manifested in a number of ways, whether it's a brightly painted figurine for a child's bedroom or a sophisticated table setting with a built-in etch a sketch. In addition to open studio time, Kiln & Co. hosts kids' summer kamps and classes for adults that explore everything from simple pottery painting to nude sculpture.
