A long-time triathlon competitor and Kripalu yoga practitioner, Sandy Eby was hooked on Bikram yoga after her very first class. She lived nearly two hours away from the nearest studio, though, so she tried to recreate the experience in her basement by practicing in front of a space heater. Unfortunately, it wasn't the same. So, Sandy founded Bikram Yoga of Oswego?a studio that occupies the third floor of the historic Kingsford House, but features modern amenities such as showers and a state-of-the-art heating system.
While the intense heat loosens tight muscles and increases circulation throughout the body, instructors lead 90-minute classes designed to accommodate students of all skill, experience, and fitness levels. Each session consists of the same two breathing exercises and 26 asanas, which systematically strengthen muscle groups and promote healthy organ function.
A pirate ship, twisty slides, rope ladders, and a tire swing. These are just a few of the imagination-boosting play pieces furnishing KidzClub’s 6,000-square-foot indoor playground. Inside this safe environment, kids eight and under won’t find flashing lights, robotics, or computers that have learned to love. That’s because KidzClub steers clear of toys that minimize engagement by filling the interactive world with hands-on activities that include a mini gas station, a campground, a construction area, and peddle cars. While watching the little ones scamper or act on the stage, parents can sit at booths in the adjacent café and sip complimentary coffee while surfing the Net. Combining adventuresome play with nibbles such as chicken nuggets and pizza under one roof, KidzClub Indoor Play and Party Place also makes a great place for birthday parties.
