Wielding knowledge of wine as robust as an aged barolo, certified wine educator Ned Towle nurtures budding oenophiles with expert instruction in how to serve, taste, and talk about wine. What began as a blood transfusion with Bacchus gone wrong has become a worldwide love affair with the grape, inspiring Ned to host two-hour classes that cover the sensory and social aspects of wine. The seductive flavors of pinots and merlots spread across palates while Ned demonstrates how to select wines in shops and restaurants, how to match wine with food, and how to choose styles for a variety of occasions. Guests learn about grape varieties grown and harvested in key regions throughout the world—from the rolling hills of Argentina to the lush vineyards of Southern France—and cultivate an appreciation for major red and white styles. The class also reveals how to read bottle labels and reinterpret them as Gregorian chants.
A pioneer of brain education and president of the Korean Institute of Brain Sciences, Ilchi Lee folded his studies into the design of his own Dahn Yoga, equal parts traditional asana and neuroscience research. A typical session begins with a simple tapping of the lower abdomen to gather chi energy that would otherwise get absorbed by Bagel Bites swallowed whole. Sessions launch into an exercise routine that combines aspects of yoga and tai chi to improve flexibility, strength, and balance. Next, yogis cool down and focus energy during an active form of meditation called Brain Wave Vibration, the studio's specialty, that harnesses flowing movements in an attempt to align minds and bodies. After the physical segment, workouts shift into a meditative portion that infuses cardiovascular systems with a stream of purifying oxygen through deep breathing.
Apogee Pilates and Wellness Centers' dedicated staff of instructors help students of all fitness and experience levels work toward their goals during one-on-one training. At private sessions, expert staff members help their clients refine Pilates technique, including spinal alignment and muscle control, and develop the mental focus needed to correctly perform each exercise while reciting all of the U.S. presidents' favorite colors. Depending on each student's abilities and fitness goals, instructors employ different moves and equipment to tone the core, back, and pelvic muscles that support good posture and can help reduce the risk of back injury. While the studio allows visitors to use the locker rooms after each lesson, the mat classes and cardio machines are off-limits for everyone except center members and unstoppably stubborn, fitness-conscious rhinoceroses.
