At most yoga studios, you can take a class that will help you relax or center your mind and body. But at EZential Wellness & Gurukul Yoga, you can take a class to improve your digestive system. That's because the instructors at Gurukul Yoga believe that the ancient practice not only helps people dealing with stress or bodily aches but also can be useful in treating medical issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. So in addition to traditional Vinyasa flow and therapeutic yoga classes, the studio offers more specifically tailored sessions, such as Yoga for Spinal Health and Yoga for Digestive Health & Core Stability.

Aside from targeting a range of wellness goals, the studio's classes are inclusive of all ages. From Family Yoga to Yoga for Teens to Gentle & Chair Friendly Yoga, everyone from toddlers to seniors to toddlers posing as seniors can find a class to fit their needs.

The founders of Wee Play believe that cognitive development and social interaction are closely intertwined. That?s why they invite parents and children up to 48 months old to engage in constructive play with others at their colorful, kid-oriented studio. Parent-child classes kick off with free recreation, after which groups converge to play on an obstacle course, experiment with musical instruments, and have circle time with studio mascot Mugsy the Dog. In addition to having fun, children learn important concepts such as following directions and taking turns.

Starfish Aquatic Club doesn't exist within a single building; rather, it connects a network of pools and veteran instructors with students aged 6 months and older for lessons that develop and hone vital swimming skills. Instruction primarily occurs in private lessons for kids or adults, which feature one-on-one in-water instruction doled out in 20- to 30-minute chunks. Instructors also schedule small-group lessons for kids, focusing on general technique progression with no more than four students at once. Their parent-child class gives caregivers the opportunity to splash around with kids, though all other lessons prohibit moms and dads from being in the pool at the same time to avoid distracting the youths with retro swimwear. Typically, full sessions take place once a week for four weeks. Instructors also hold pay-as-you-go lessons for those who only want a couple of days of instruction.

At Tee-riffic Golf Center, things come in twos: there's a two-tiered driving range, a pair of 18-hole miniature golf courses, and ample opportunity to practice toward scribbling more "twos" on the scorecard. A new managerial team recently assumed control of the center, swapping out the old range balls, mats, and dividers for new equipment and upgrading the mini course with new stone and mulch. After clocking out of one of the 80 driving-range stalls or signing mini-golf scorecards with a big red kiss, visitors can amble into the pro shop, where they'll find gear by major golf brands such as Cleveland, Callaway, and Adams.
