To overcome a tragedy that almost ended her life, Carrie Muchaw turned to yoga. As she delved deeper into her practice, she become more and more inspired to share yoga's mental and physical healing abilities with others, thus, Yoga on the Brazos was born. The studio now leads students of all ages and abilities on a path to improving their physical and mental health, touting their motto "Yoga heals, pass it on." Muchaw promotes athletic well-being with a flowing series of poses during the rigorous Vinyasa, which uses channeled breaths to link each movement more naturally than a semaphore ellipsis. During Hatha sessions, the instructors help students practice sustained postures, offering modifications throughout so attendees can safely challenge themselves by pushing stretches further. Community members can also take advantage of recently added belly-dancing classes and take in their tots for development-aiding kids' yoga.
Karen Mones's passion for fitness began at a young age, exercising to Jane Fonda videos with her mother. She went on to play softball, earn her bachelor's in exercise and sports science, and obtain six instructor certifications in everything from yoga to strength training. She founded Houston Adventure Boot Camp to share her knowledge and passion for fitness with as many people as possible.
She and her trainers create different regimens each day, taking advantage of the city's natural spaces and natural forces to enhance their workouts. They challenge gravity by having students lift their own bodyweight or free weights. Students plow through the heaviest friction the air can throw at them in sprints, and they hold up under constant pressure from the sun to nap in the middle of a field.

The technicians at New Life Therapy, armed with ML830 therapeutic cold lasers, take aim at the pain caused by fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel, and other ailments during 30-minute noninvasive treatment sessions.

Inquisitive patients can peruse medical studies pertaining to the success of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on the manufacturer's website and in the laser's family Christmas letter.
Those who can't do, teach?or so the old adage goes. Not so with JJ Wood and Bruce Olson, coaches at Pecan Grove Plantation Country Club's Wood & Olson Golf Performance academy. As players the duo boasts some pretty impressive resumes, including a stint as a varsity golfer at Pepperdine University for JJ and coaching a third-place finisher at the 2000 Shell Houston Open for Bruce, among many other accolades.
It's this extensive background as players that has led to the formation of their teaching philosophies. When they take a student under their wing, they assess the entirety of the player's game?from mental approach to physical conditioning to unyielding devotion to a single pair of lucky socks. They then craft a training program uniquely suited to his or her skills, filled with such components as video analysis of the full swing, practice with reading greens, and golf-specific physical training. The approach clearly works: past students have gone on to earn golf scholarships at schools such as Notre Dame, the University of Texas, and UC Santa Barbara, in addition to taking home several state and club championships.
