  • Beast Nation
    A National Association of Sports Medicine–certified personal trainer and a former football player, Will Harding has what it takes to help people exceed their expectations.

Some of his regimens include exercises such as pushups, weight lifting, and heavy rope exercises, as well as sport-specific conditioning such as running mechanics and lateral and linear agility.

  • Wine and Canvas LA
    The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

    During aerial yoga and aerial dance classes, Cuddled pigeon, swinging hero, and floating pinwheel are just a few of the poses taught by Kimberely Simonetti and the UP Flying Yoga staff. The trained aerial-movement therapists and yoga instructors lead students of all abilities through custom routines performed on soft fabric hammocks raised 3 feet above the ground. During each one-hour class, instructors give their undivided attention to up to sixteen pupils as they teach them how to climb, flip, and spin faster than the Tasmanian Devil trying to dry off his fur. Along with noticing an increase in energy and flexibility, clients may find an improvement in posture and a decrease in back pain.
