Dr. Daniel DelCastillo, head of the practice, makes sure his team of of dentists and hygienists take extra special care to carefully explain treatments before they perform them. This helps set a tone of comfort and trust at the office, especially since the team offers such a wide range of procedures using up-to-date technology, such as manipulating 3D digital imagery of your teeth. Whitening treatments lift out stains and yellowing, veneers cover up badly damaged teeth, and dental implants replace any teeth you had forgotten you'd lost. When sitting in the chair for a procedure at Beach Dental Care Miami Beach, it's easy to distract yourself, too—there are broad windows in the office that look out to palm trees.
A former life coach, motivational speaker, and host of You Are the Light!, a cable TV show that aired in New York and Los Angeles for 15 years, Edwin Bergman knows a little bit about bending in multiple directions. Indeed, it wasn't a lack of flexibility that led Edwin to yoga, but instead, it was yoga's capacity to heal, strengthen, and revitalize that's had him practicing since 1989.
Today, Edwin shares what he's learned over the last two decades at his very own studio in Miami Beach. When describing his classes, Edwin uses words such as "strong," "focused," and "nurturing," making sure not to leave out that he keeps things "fun," too. In 2003, he traveled to India to deepen his understanding of yoga—just another stop on the extensive journey that is his training. Now, at his studio, Edwin blends all of that training into classic teachings that emphasize balance, precise instruction, and fluid movement.

Shakti Yoga Miami's diverse group of teachers includes a reiki healer and a former wrestler who discovered hatha yoga during a trip to southern India. Inside Shakti’s studio, they draw from those wells to achieve a single purpose: uniting spiritual and physical well-being in their classes. Though each class focuses on a sequence of poses, the teachers approach them differently, building flexibility and strength in Vinyasa, or incorporating props that reinforce balance in Iyengar sessions. The staff also leads reiki workshops and classes to help people ignite inner healing, and their organic detox programs combine all-natural remedies to cleanse the body of detrimental elements without the logistical hassle of hiring a hazmat crew and a magic school bus.

At Sobekick, a boutique boxing studio, wrapped-knuckle students wallop a partner’s punch pads, pummel punching bags, or high-kick invisible targets.

To do this, they use personal-training sessions, kickboxing routines, and "wildcard" workouts that could consist of hardcore cardio drills or sincere apologies to bruised punching bags. Sobekick slows things down with yoga classes and tones bodies with specialized classes designed to tighten abs and derrieres.
