Forrest Pilates's full-service staff looks after patrons' holistic well being with Pilates workouts, yoga classes, PowerPlate sessions, prenatal classes, massage, and theta healing sessions. Studio owner, certified instructor, and medical intuitive Maria Forrest began practicing Pilates while pregnant with her daughter, discovering that the strengthening classes prepared her body and mind for the rigors of labor and new motherhood.
Now in her own studio outfitted with specialized Pilates equipment and a serene practice space, Maria helps clients of all ages and experience levels to achieve their personal health and wellness goals with a cornucopia of sessions, from kids yoga classes to private Pilates sessions for advanced-level adults. After class, clients can relax with a warm cup of herbal tea and a hug from their abdominal muscles, still hot from their workout.
To combat the scourge of sickle cell disease, the Miami-Dade County Chapter of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America goes beyond simple lip service. They frequently educate the public about the disease, an inherited red blood cell disorder that causes a debilitating form of anemia. They also pair their education with cold, hard cash, raising funds through events such as 5Ks and conferences. These resources help provide social services for afflicted Sickle Cell patients and families.

The impassioned and expressive married musical duo Celia and Paco Fonta have been strumming the guitar and dancing through Miami as Siempre Flamenco for more than a quarter century. For their seventh annual Festival de Cante Flamenco, the couple invite a host of internationally known artists to heat up an evening of traditional cante flamenco. Making their festival debut this year, singers Jesus Montoya, Kina Mendez, and Javier Heredia each boast an impressive resumé, fans across both Spain and the States, and an unerring ability to discern castanets from gum-chewing clams. Javier excites the crowd as a festero, able to both dance and sing, joined in step by Celia to twirl and tap across stage. The towering vocals of Jesus, Javier, and Kina explore the octaves while Paco joins forces with guest guitarist Jose "Panzekito" Cortes to fill the stage with a suitably sultry atmosphere. The evening of passion and grace unfolds at the Manuel Artime Theater, one of the largest small theaters in town, with a 60'x30' stage that strikes the right balance between intimacy and accommodation.
