Certified regular and guest instructors at Bikram Yoga Greater Portland's three studios guide groups through yoga poses and breathing exercises inside rooms heated to a temperature of 105 degrees or higher. Flow through up to 26 postures of varying difficulty in each 90-minute session, taking slow breaths through the nose and focusing on stillness so as not to disturb temperamental motion sensors. By encouraging perspiration, the practice of Bikram yoga may help to facilitate weight loss, lower high blood pressure and stress, and reduce pain from physical injuries.

Bikram Yoga Greater Portland threw open the doors of their newest location, in Tigard, in May 2013; the spacious studio floods with natural light from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows on one side of the space. The sleek confines of the Beaverton location are home to a 4,000-square-foot studio and a lobby decorated with custom-built benches. The Portland studio's 2,500-square-foot space is guarded by a lobby decorated with subtle colors and natural light from large windows. All locations are equipped with showers for men and women, each stocked with robes to keep post-workout skin from huddling up under the hair upon encountering cooler temps.

It may be called Body Now!, but as members transform their bodies, the studio's staff also wants them to shift their perspectives. Accordingly, they focus on all-around wellness, combining elements of world dance with cardio exercises during Now Fitness! group classes and emphasizing proper posture during Yoga Now! sessions. Wise Woman! classes help older women master functional movement patterns that enable them to win arm-wrestling matches against neighborhood kids. In the fitness center, exercisers can work up a sweat on Cybex and Life Fitness treadmills, elliptical trainers, and stationary bikes, or focus on strength with machines and free weights. Positive sayings unfurl in script across the deep purple walls, motivating members as they blast through 30-minute circuit training workouts.

Finding Bigfoot, whenever it happens, will be a matter of being in the right place at the right time. The guides at Sasquatch Hunt try to increase those odds by hosting a series of overnight stakeouts through the summer. During each Saturday session, parties set up camp in the woodsy wilderness of Oregon to keep vigil for evidence of the elusive creature, whether it's the enormous footprints, the sounds of rustling brambles and bushes, or the fleeting bluetooth signal of Bigfoot's smartphone.

Sasquatch Hunt falls under the umbrella of Spirit Expeditions, which specializes in haunted walking tours of historic cities throughout America.

Pump It Up's two indoor inflatable arenas bounce socked younglings high off the ground with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Trained, amiable staffers supervise fun-filled visits where parents can leap around with their kids through gargantuan, air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Attendees can also focus their free play for special events, such as custom birthday parties and private team parties. These themed soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. Both giant arenas are climate controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by the well-trained staff and local police. Supplementing its thorough rule enforcement with expert installation and anchoring, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards.

Hooked for Life Guide Service’s founder and head guide, Jarrod Kelso, caught his first fish at the age of 4 and has adored the sport ever since. As a native Oregonian, Jarrod has developed an intimate understanding of the state’s waters. He puts that knowledge to work during guided trips, some of which track down salmon and steelhead, others of which chase mammoth redband and brown trout up to 15 pounds in size. Jarrod leads fellow anglers into Oregon’s waters aboard his new Willie custom drift boat.

Judy Brawley's lifelong passion for horses inspired her and her team of experienced trainers to foster sturdy bonds between horse and rider. Farm managers live on the premises, facilitating around-the-clock care, and a cadre of vets, dentists, and massage therapists monitors horses’ health and weeds out egotistical centaurs that attempt to infiltrate their ranks. Students learn proper riding techniques as they navigate the indoor and outdoor arenas of the 100-acre facility. Groomed bridle trails weave around pine and cherry trees, providing idyllic confines to bond with steeds and empathize with their desires to invent a trendy pair of high-heeled hooves.
