The instructors at The Yoga Room of Redlands take time to build toward peak poses. They begin by modeling basic movements that warm bodies from the inside out. As muscles and connective tissues gain mobility, teachers introduce more-rigorous postures such as chair, which mimics the action of sitting down on Santa's lap. Students build up to the peak pose—a posture that's intensely challenging and rewarding—and then cool down through a sequence of curative, relaxing movements.
Throughout each of the Power Vinyasa–style classes, teachers tend to students as individuals, offering modifications and adjustments to make poses more comfortable. They also add upbeat music to brighten the mood.
Redlands Gymnastics Club’s action-packed classes endow children between 18 months and 18 years of age with the interpersonal skills and physical discipline they will need to succeed in school or reality television. Led by enthusiastic coaches, classes meet once or twice a week and range from 45-minute parent-child sessions for tots (3.5 years or younger) to progressively longer and more challenging instruction for older girls and boys. Grade-schoolers can rise to the top of playground politics by mastering the splits in beginners or intermediate classes, and 3- to 5-year-olds can learn fundamental movement patterns in Tumble Tots sessions, also focused on cultivating social skills such as listening and not eating gym socks without the proper condiments. Redlands’s innovative program incorporates music, gymnastics, and dance to promote robust personal development and a positive self-image among its young charges.
Since 1994, the instructors at Redlands Aikikai have taught martial and meditative arts to people of all ages, creating an environment in which students can also develop courage, compassion, character, and healthy habits. Their main program, aikido, shows students how to use an attacker's energy against himself by way of escapes, joint locks, strikes, and sweeps. Sometimes, the program incorporates swords and staffs into its training, though it always maintains a non-competitive approach.
"I am artistry"—that's the translation of Je M'appelle Artistry, as well as owner Shonny's philosophy. Shonny works as a photographer, designer, and instructor, often combining all three passions. Snapping photos with her Nikon D600, she captures intimate boudoir scenes, romantic wedding images, and fanciful kids' shots, focusing on portraits. She extends this love of portraits into group or private workshops, where students learn to incorporate natural light and elements into their pictures. Her photos have been published in the cloth-diapering book Changing Diapers; she also designs her own cloth-diaper and clothing patterns.
My Gym Children's Fitness Center, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level (starting as young as 6 months) and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6–9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
