The Healing Factory instructs youth ages 5–17 on proper breathing, simple yoga stretches and poses, and meditation, and provides holistic instruction in art, dance, and nutrition. While practicing yoga and meditation, young participants learn to balance their physical bodies, their emotions, and the unwieldy scales of justice through specific exercises and deep-breathing techniques. Regular yoga practice can also enhance concentration and information retention, and meditation can help reduce violent urges and improve kids' abilities to resolve conflicts. La Luchi would like to purchase yoga mats for graduates of the Healing Factory program to encourage them to continue to nurture their newfound meditative practices at home.
Blistering every seat in the house with his scorching wit, actor, comedian, and author Tracy Morgan brings his inimitable act to the historic Fillmore for a charitable night of raucous, adult-only hysterics. Beloved for his roles on Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, and in numerous films, Morgan serves up an obstreperous standup act sure to tickle even the most irascible ribs until they weep with joy. Proving that not all comics have replaced their hearts with whoopie cushions, this special event benefits Rebuilding Together, a nonprofit organization founded by Miami Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano to provide repairs and accessibility accommodations so that military veterans can remain in their own homes.
Every person has a bucket list of long-held desires, and The Bowtie Entertainment Group, LLC, aims to turn each one into reality. Clients contact Bowtie's concierge team hoping to fulfill a once-in-a-lifetime experience: anything from going on an African safari to attending an A-list event to finally exiting the Matrix. After a discussion to find out exactly what a client is looking for, the team gets to work, employing a rolodex of relationships with contacts around the globe to "make the inaccessible accessible," according to the business's website. The mission to provide one-of-a-kind adventures also manifests itself during Bowtie’s lavish parties, which start with an open bar and end at one of Miami's popular nightclubs.
If the instructors at IK School of Gymnastics wore all of their awards—which, for Valentina Kevliyan, includes an Olympic silver medal—they probably wouldn't be able to move, much less teach. Thankfully, the only thing they bring to their classes is years of international experience. Having competed in rhythm gymnastics championships around the world, these coaches mentor children ages 3 and up in the graceful, yet demanding, art. Their courses are separated by age group and skill level, except for a Sunday camp that accommodates all students. During classes, they focus on the poise and flexibility necessary to perform striking choreography, complete with apparatuses such as balls and hoops.
At Jewelry Creations Workshop, carrying a torch for someone doesn't mean you have a crush on them—it means you're actually holding a torch for them while they tie their hair back and prepare to solder pieces of hand-made jewelry together. Named Best Jewelry Maker by the Miami New Times in 2013, the workshop team teaches wide-ranging techniques, from the aforementioned soldering to fold forming and enameling. Owner Steven Brownlee, who leads many of the sessions, has more than a decade of experience in the craft and uses it to teach cutting-edge techniques as well as the basics. In his introductory workshop, students get more than three hours to practice the fundamentals and craft a simple silver ring ideal for spontaneously proposing to a classmate.
