When it's 105 degrees out, most people prefer to be cooling off at the pool or in front of an air conditioner. But at Hot Yoga at the Edge, members welcome the increased temperatures. That's because the heat helps to boost flexibility, flush toxins from the body, and alleviate stress and anxiety. During classes such as Hatha and Yin yoga, practitioners move through asanas, or poses, as the heat bolsters their workout and assists in toning and strengthening their limbs, core, and inner magma.
Skate Tiffany's! Roller Skating & Family Fun Center exudes so much fun that it was used in a commercial for an Xbox 360 video game. After a quick look at the recently renovated rink, that's not so surprising: colorful bulbs fan out neatly from the center of the ceiling, with paper lanterns and LED lights also glimmering down onto the shiny hardwood floor. A brand new JumboTron TV playing sporting events hangs from the center of the skating floor which skaters whiz past on their quad or inline skates.
Between laps around the floor, groups can catch their breath in the arcade or fuel up in the snack bar, where the menu includes Hebrew National hot dogs, soft pretzels, and whatever else it is that roller skates like to eat. Tiffany's is also prime real estate for parties, as the staff often customizes packages for kids' birthdays, corporate events, and school field trips.
An Xbox 360 console, a 40-inch high-definition television, and a surround-sound headset: all of this is yours alone at PLAYlive's individual gaming stations. But that doesn't mean each round of gaming has to be a solitary affair.

For members, the lounge even hosts monthly mixers where gamers can participate in mini tournaments or debate which Mario brother made their mother prouder. Beyond its comfy lounge, PLAYlive can enrich your gaming experience with its shop that specializes in repairing Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii consoles.
Hot Yoga Inc. likes to see you sweat. Not due to exhaustion or struggle, but because the perspiration caused by their classes encourages mental tranquility, muscle toning, and physical detoxification. Hot Yoga Inc. sends warmth deep into the skin and tissues instead of just decorating their studio with a bunch of Sun stickers. These higher temperatures help foster a greater range of motion as students of all skill levels follow a flowing series of yoga postures. Basic Hatha classes soothe the mind with a rush of endorphins while losing weight and improving flexibility, and Power Yoga pushes students with more intense workouts that build strength.
Since 1957, Daffodil Bowl has been a fun, safe atmosphere for bowlers to while away the day and night. Families and friends gather amongst its 24 glossy lanes to send pins a-clattering, with bumpers available for kids still learning how to keep their balls out of the gutter or parents who aren't that great at bowling. Meanwhile, players can send a representative to the Rock N Bowl Cafe for pizza or sandwiches or visit the on-site video arcade.
