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.

The distinctive biodiversity flourishing in New Zealand's forests, lakes, and mountains resembles nothing else on earth. Today, nearly 2,000 of the country’s plant species are found nowhere else on the planet. The country's national symbol (and the nickname its people proudly call themselves) is the flightless kiwi, a stubby, long-beaked bird indigenous to New Zealand. Because of the eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886, the Waimangu Volcanic Valley near Rotorua features some of the world's largest hot springs and a geyser-like lake within a crater. Discover the country's colorful natural diversity with a 13-day, three-city tour of New Zealand with all airfare and transportation.Days 1–3: Your Qantas Airways business-class flight departs from LAX bound for Auckland. The high-tech plane’s business-class seats transform into beds, and personal media consoles with a library of 60 movies and 200 TV shows speed up the overnight flight. After you lose a day by flying over the International Date Line, the plane touches down in Auckland on day 3. A connecting flight takes you to Queenstown, named the "Adventure Capital of the World" for its skydiving, whitewater rafting, and Lord of the Rings tours.Days 3–6: For four nights in Queenstown, guests take in the panoramic views at Azur Luxury Lodge, a secluded hilltop hotel overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the snow-capped Remarkables mountain range. Sip locally produced wine on your suite’s window-lined sundeck, or hop on the complimentary shuttle to explore Queensland.Days 7–9: After transferring to Wellington, visitors drive through the countryside in a rented car to Wharekauhau Lodge and Country Estate at the southern base of the North Island for a three-night stay. Named one of the best hotels in the world in 2009 by Condé Nast Traveler, the 5,500-acre resort integrates a working sheep farm, a gourmet restaurant, and a rugged coastline. Secluded guest cottages crafted from natural elements such as clay tiles and New Zealand wool carpets sit above Palliser Bay. A tour of Wharekauhau farm—with its romney sheep and sheep-dog demonstration—is included.Days 10–13: Best known for its geothermal activity, the northern city of Rotorua sits near geysers and hot-mud pools that pop up over its countryside. Spend three nights at the Treetops Lodge & Estate, set in the heart of an 800-year-old forest. The lodge’s ecology-inspired architecture earned it New Zealand’s Leading Luxury Lodge award in 2009. Windowed french doors in lodge rooms allow for epic games of peekaboo with sneaky geckos. During the stay, guests join chef Charles Royal for a Wild Food Trail tour that introduces native Maori cuisine. Sample ingredients such as horopito, kawakawa, and pikopiko, a fern native to New Zealand. The tour concludes on day 13 with a transfer to Auckland and a return flight to Los Angeles.

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.
