Whether swooping through the air atop the trapeze or wrapped in aerial silks, the performers at The Cabiri Troupe retell the myths of cultures that have passed into antiquity through high-flying performance as theatrical emissaries for the Anunnaki Project, a Seattle non-profit organization. The performers portray ancient myths through high-flying performance, dance classes, and written works. Primary instructors received aerial teacher training at the New England Center for Circus Arts and boast ten-plus years of performance experience. They share their multidisciplinary methodology with students through such classes as aerial arts, which sends participants aloft on aerial silks and hoops for spinning and swirling.

As Yogi Bhajan describes it, Kundalini yoga resides somewhere between science and spirituality. It not only strengthens the body with physical exercise, but also “goes right into your heart and extends your consciousness." Wahe Guru Yoga also defines their approach to yoga's fundamental objective as "awaken[ing] the power of the individual to excel—to experience their infinity and fulfill their personal destiny."
In light of these claims, it is easy to see why Wahe Guru Yoga packs more than 25 Kundalini classes with students each week. The studio’s teachers take their cues from Yogi Bhajan, fostering an enlightened community of practitioners and students. Though Kundalini is the primary style of yoga taught at Wahe Guru Yoga, the studio also offers yoga workshops and Ashram hours for students who wish to focus on meditation.
More than a mere place to lift weights, StoneWay CrossFit aims to build a sense of community among its members, spurring its students to break past their physical and mental limitations with high-intensity workouts. The team of qualified, passionate coaches draws from past experiences that include serving in the military, running ultra marathons, and bravely ignoring an open box of donuts. Here, instead of steering students toward treadmills or high-tech ellipticals, they introduce them to the boxes, tractor tires, and gymnastic rings required for CrossFit's organic, functional-movement exercises, and supplement the routines with nutritional assessments and personal training sessions. And because the challenging workouts are ever-changing, CrossFit helps students of all body types, ages, and skill levels build strength and stamina without forcing them into a boring routine.
