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 Marlins take the field at Marlins Park: an eco-friendly, 37,000-seat facility equipped with a retractable roof, plexiglass fish tanks behind home plate, and a vibrant sculpture in left-center field that kicks into motion for Marlins home runs.

And today, after some light rebranding to go along with the new stadium, the rechristened Miami Marlins aim to continue traditions new and old, expand their list of Hall of Famers, and train the stadium’s fish to stealthily intercept batting signals.

For one weekend each year, the flavors and sounds of Peru waft up from the Southern Hemisphere to the streets of Miami. PeruFest USA celebrates Peruvian culture with two full days of food, live music, and contests while also shining a light on other Latin cuisines. Visitors can attend quinoa-cooking demonstrations and classes and enter contests for dishes such as ceviche, which uses citric acid to cook fish rather than the usual method of stuffing hot coals in their gills. Meanwhile, youngsters can attend their own cooking classes, see the elegant gait of the Peruvian Paso during a horse show, and boogie alongside their parents as they watch international dance routines.
