With its bright yellow walls speckled with Disney decals and bright stickers, Fun Time Pottery invites artists of all ages and skill levels to work in a cheery, creative atmosphere. During open paint sessions, participants choose a piece of pottery from the overflowing shelves that line the room, using stencils and paints to add their own personal touches to plates, mugs, and figurines. Pottery classes let students delve into the intricacies of clay shaping, with instructors teaching their charges how to bring forth new objects from shapeless lumps of clay, and how much paprika to add to play-doh before it’s edible. After finishing their sculpting, pupils learn how to paint and glaze their works, creating unique keepsakes from start to finish.

At Grace Space - Yoga at RDCC, Grace Hernandez leads students through the ancient postures and breathing exercises of Hatha yoga, a style that developed in India more than 2,000 years ago. Grace’s studio is fully matted, meaning students don’t need to bring a mat to class. Along with exposing people to the benefits of yoga, Grace also wants to help her community. Once a month she leads a free class that focuses on a few postures and delves into the anatomy and benefits behind them—all she asks is that attendees bring clothing, canned goods, or monetary donations that Grace then purposes toward causes and groups.

Bikram Yoga Shelton's certified instructors lead 90-minute classes that take place within a sultry practice space with 58% humidity and temperatures that reach as high as 103 degrees. In the therapeutic heat, they help students of all abilities achieve deeper, safer stretches and detoxifying perspiration. They walk their pupils through two breathing exercises and a powerful sequence of 26 standing and seated poses in each class to challenge muscles more effectively than bench-pressing a chakra. Each posture helps unleash torrents of oxygenating circulation throughout the body, promoting healthy organ function as the sustained stretches bolster stamina and flexibility. After class, students can rinse themselves in the onsite showers and retrieve any restless spirit animals they stashed in the studio's lockers.

Fun Station USA fills its indoor space with the scaled-down amenities of an amusement park, such as mechanical rides, a multileveled maze, and a large concession stand stocked with carnival cuisine. At all hours of operation, the air buzzes with excitement—a byproduct of jingle-jangling machines, flashing lights, and splashes of color at every corner. After acquiring tickets from myriad arcade games that include skee-ball and air-cannon shooting galleries, revelers head to the redemption counter to exchange their winnings for prizes and foreign currency.

Amid its fully equipped studio of Peak Pilates equipment, Body Reformers sculpts muscles throughout the body while improving posture, mental awareness, and overall well-being. Feeble backs and sheepish hips benefit from the Pilates methodology, which focuses on strengthening muscles without manually pumping ounces of iron or hoisting mule after mule above one's head. During the one-hour mat classes, fully certified Pilates instructors guide classes of 12 students through exercises that flatten abdominals, tighten thighs, lift buttocks, and sharpen dull shoulder blades. The private reformer lesson further refines forms with one-on-one instruction.
