Self Awakening Yoga owner Barbara Sterling describes its mission as guiding students toward a sense of balance that helps them be present in their own lives. Glossy, eco-friendly bamboo floor spans 1,900 square feet of airy studio space, whose white walls are painted with large-scale lotuses and Eastern designs. The studio fosters a community atmosphere by lending books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs to students for use at home.
The studio?s instructors have a variety of reasons for coming to the practice of yoga, whether it was recommended by a doctor after an injury, the solution to physical stress from marathon running or rugby, or the life-changing vocation of a close friend. Consequently, they teach classes and workshops that address a variety of needs through a spectrum of yoga styles, including Vinyasa, heated Vinyasa, prenatal, restorative, and gentle. Memberships and private lessons are also available to let students adjust the frequency and individual attention of their own curricula.
At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
After the surgeries and treatments that helped her overcome breast cancer, Kathy Jannino-Faino lost some of the range of motion she had cultivated as a part-time fitness instructor. Rehabilitating on the Reformer—Pilates’s signature resistance apparatus—she discovered a workout that she loved enough to turn into a full-time career. She now helms her own intimate fitness studio, Passport Pilates, where she and her team teach Reformer and mat classes that strengthen core muscles and tone physiques.
Beyond Pilates, the studio’s staff members also teach interval-format Fit Barre classes that fuse Pilates with yoga and sports conditioning to firm specific problem areas, such as abs and thighs. For a class that incorporates more intensive cardio, students can participate in fast-paced Booty Camp workouts that jet from Reformer work to barre exercise to TRX suspension training inspired by Hitchcock films.
Michael's Market is part deli, part restaurant, and part catering company. That means that sometimes customers visit one of its two locations to lunch on crabmeat salad on focaccia bread or chicken cordon bleu on a baguette, and sometimes they pop in just to pick up some fresh marinated meats. If patrons are hosting a morning meeting or a business lunch, they also can pick out a platter of stuffed finger sandwiches or pastries from the corporate menu so attendees won't start gnawing on their laptop power cords for sustenance. The catering menu is full of variety: chefs can prepare a platter of hand-rolled swedish meatballs, a tray of lasagna with house marinara, or a spread of seafood au gratin—baked shrimp, scallops, lobster, and shrimp pieces with cheese and Ritz Crackers crumbs.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
