Diets, traditional medicine, and exercise regimens all work best when people keep one thing in mind: Everyone?s body is different. Vitality Pilates Studio's instructors, some of whom boast more than a decade of experience, understand this basic truth, tailoring their teachings to individual bodies. They blend both traditional Pilates practice with newer teaching styles in introductory classes, private lessons, and multilevel training classes that may integrate apparatus and prop work. To accommodate those who want to dive into Pilates more extensively, they offer an instructor-training course.

Although it may exercise its tyranny over the rest of the world, gravity?s authority slips away at Jump-N-Party. Instead of being tugged downward, children aged 12 and younger bounce high in the air, popcorning across a pair of obstacle courses and ricocheting around a castle-themed bounce house. An inflatable slide invites bodies to whoosh down its 18-foot incline, and two toddler areas welcome wee ones not yet old enough to fix a car transmission. In addition to open-jump sessions, the indoor recreation center hosts parties, fueling celebrants with lemonade and enhancing their revelry with add-ons such as pizza, cupcakes, and balloons.

On a childhood fishing trip with his dad in the San Juan Islands, Shane Aggergaard noticed a group of orcas swimming toward his boat. Rather than steering clear of human contact, they swam directly under the boat—one even looked Shane right in the eye. It was a moment of whale-human connection he never forgot, and nowadays tries to approximate through Island Adventures. The whale-watching tour company, which Shane founded with his wife, Jennifer, brings passengers into close contact with the aquatic mammals of the Pacific Northwest.

Depending on the season, wilderness-savvy guides—who’ve led more than 6,000 collective wildlife tours during their careers—can introduce passengers to minke whales and the San Juan’s three resident orca pods, migrating gray whales, or humpbacks. Their 101-foot vessel, The Island Explorer 3, boasts a large bow pulpit and a viewing deck with more than 400 feet of railing, ideal for seeing whales in their entirety, from their tails to their trusty sets of water wings. The team backs each tour with a whale-sighting guarantee and strives to ensure future sightings by making sustainable choices, from its ecofriendly cleaning products to the boat's cabin floor made from recycled tires.
