Gina Goldberg—the director of Home Yoga Experience— discovered Anusara yoga more than a decade ago, and she is now a certified Kripalu-yoga instructor and children's yoga teacher. Gina's time in trainings and workshops has greatly influenced and inspired her to awaken the same passion in her students.
Gina and her fellow instructors teach an array of classes inside a hot studio, which cleanses the body and loosens muscles. In addition to guiding adults through intentional movements and conscious-breathing techniques, they also teach children's classes sans heat. After each session, the lounge and gift shop beckons students with cozy furniture and yoga accessories. When she isn't instructing students, Gina presides over workshops, teacher training, and drum circles.
Wellness is a way of life. That's why Ripcurl's lavish facility offers everything from weight training and cardio machines to yoga and Pilates classes that shape the physique. An on-staff nutritionist can set up a structured diet conducive to individual goals. Clients may also retreat to a cozy room for a private acupuncture session, or a therapeutic massage with hot stones and soothing aromatherapy.
The motto at Greenhouse Golf is "Golf 4 to 84," a reference to the 80-year age range that the indoor facility is designed to appeal to. Though it may seem like a bold business model, it's not hard to imagine multiple generations gathering in the sparkling new facility to enjoy multiple forms of golf. Golfers of all ages can perfect their swings in 10 golf simulators, each showcasing more than 50 digital courses, half of which are hole-by-hole recreations of famous links from across the world. Little clubbers can acquaint themselves with the art of putting and Bavarian yodeling in the alpine-themed, indoor miniature-golf course with rocky outcrops and faux fir trees.
The center maintains its broad appeal while still offering individual services: experienced instructors offer private lessons as well as clinics tailored to all age and ability levels. Greenhouse Golf's loft—a separate section with a kitchenette, seating for up to 120 people, and three 9'x17' screens that can access the Internet—boasts all of the amenities needed for a successful corporate meeting or a party honoring a recently retired golf cart.
