Tucked away from life's daily barrage of appointments, meetings, and expectations, Dallas Yoga Center provides a tranquil haven for self-discovery and the mental truces that achieve inner peace. An arched Indian doorway marks the threshold between the outside world and the refuge of the 8,000-sq.-ft. facility, which houses four spacious, naturally lit studios.

Inside, instructors lead groups through more than 65 classes per week, which focus on a variety of yoga styles. During the studio's Beginners Yoga classes, aspiring yogis learn the basic motions and breathing techniques that serve as the jumping-off point for their yogic journeys. From there, they can explore the gentle calmness of Yin Yoga, the intense exertion of a hot Ashtanga Yoga class set at 85 degrees, the prop-aided poses of Iyengar Yoga, or the ab-toning workouts of Yoga Core. They can also take part in t'ai chi sessions that leave minds spry and energies recentered. After class, students can propel their practices forward by stocking up on the center's selection of yoga clothes, jewelry, props, accessories, and DVDs. For those seeking even deeper enlightenment, the center also sponsors yoga teacher training, and even arranges retreats to India, where students study ayurveda and yoga straight from the source.

Both former professionally performing cirque artists, Kimberly Adele and Dylan Keith wanted to share the joys of flight and mastering the wide-ranging and eclectic cirque arts. To that end, they train aerial apprentices at CirqueFit, blending aspects of music, dance, and theater with soaring circus maneuvers. Kimberly and Keith emphasize proper safety throughout all their programs. Their class environment of trust and positivity makes for an engaging socializing forum and an upbeat venue for children—some as young as 3 years old—where they can develop their coordination, confidence, and ability to best any bear balancing atop a circus ball. Students of all ages can swoop and spin on the lyra or spiral down aerial silks during aerial cirque-arts classes or hone their balance skills in acro-yoga sessions, which rely on partner poses to form living sculptures. In addition to imparting high-flying skills, each class rewards students with fitness benefits, which tighten cores and tone physiques as guests hoist their own bodyweight above cushioned mats.

Backdoor Comedy made its way into the Dallas comedy scene in a manner as modest and circuitous as its name might suggest. Before it reached its current intimate space downtown in the Doubletree Hotel, owners (and comics themselves) Jan Norton and Linda Stogner put together showcases in no fewer than nine other locations, including a deli, a bowling alley, and a feed store. Today, weekends see a large rotating cast of regulars and occasional drop-ins by celebrity guests who have included David Spade and Kathleen Madigan.

Maroon 5 and Train join musical forces at the Gexa Energy Pavilion for a tuneful collision of chart-topping favorites. Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmates continue their mission to woo even the most colicky eardrums with a songbook of finely honed hits most recently infused with material from the band's 2010 release, Hands All Over. Augmenting the aural fun, Train runs express across the stage and the heartstrings, showcasing the songwriting chops that have earned the band multiple Grammys. Crooner and guitar-slinger Matt Nathanson completes the bill, setting the stage for a night of entertainment even more robust than watching a neighbor teach his schnauzer to moonwalk.
