At Village Yoga, Freddy Margolis has amassed an impressive team of experienced instructors, some of whom have impressive backgrounds in fields such as competitive dance and chinese medicine. These specialists aim to help students foster holistic wellness with a variety of yoga classes at both of their spacious studios. Their class styles range from flowing Vinyasa and gentle stretches to high-intensity Zumba and power yoga, and teacher training is also available.
Clients can rent either studio to host yoga parties that celebrate birthdays, engagements, or successful human-Jenga games. An instructor will be on hand to guide partygoers through routines, and the space comes equipped with yoga mats, bolsters, and music.

During a fight, nothing stands between you and your opponent but a pair of gloves and your training. That's where Maryland Combat Sports Academy comes in?the instructors here arm students of all ages and skill levels with the techniques and strength to take down any opponent during bouts. They lead a variety of styles, including traditional boxing, Burmese kickboxing, mixed martial arts, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, each of which cater to different strengths. For instance, in Brazilian jiujitsu, smaller fighters can take down a larger opponent with joint-lock and choke-hold techniques combined with gravity and leverage?common names for a right and left fist. Whereas Burmese kickboxing employs the entire body, adding head butts and knuckle strikes to the kicks and knee strikes of Muay Thai kickboxing.
