Frozen lakes, snowy hills, and warm ocean waves are transformed into arenas over which to slip and slide, thanks to the experienced instructors at Kite Club NY. During private and group lessons, they teach students how to strap into skis, snowboards, or surfboards, take the reins of a kite, and harness the wind's power.

When Robert Taylor opened Taylor Studios in 1984, he embarked on a mission to preserve his clients' smile-worthy moments through professional portraiture. Today, occupying a 2,500-square-foot space on the first floor of the Four Points Sheraton Hotel, his mission remains unchanged. He snaps subjects to mark special occasions such as weddings and high-school graduations, and then produces the camera-loving smiles and confident gazes entirely onsite, which allows him to maintain his strict standards for quality control.
Dorian School of Music plucks at the undiscovered skills of novice musicians with inspiring lessons designed to make every soloist a virtuoso. Use four 30-minute classes to rub shoulders with a choice of instruments—drums, guitar, bass guitar, violin and viola, piano, organ, and vocals—and, if, desired, study the Royal Conservatory of Music Curriculum (for piano or guitar) or the Suzuki Method (violin). Perch on a piano bench and tap out a double-entendre-filled Beethoven concerto, or crash mallets into drum cymbals to let your neighbours know you’re awake bright and early. Dorian School of Music's fabulous faculty teaches students to approach each session as a classical conquest, preparing young musicians for the day they battle sentient instruments for control of major cities.

The owner of Good Vibrations extols the virtues of neurofeedback. According to Susan Gillies, certified neurofeedback trainer and the owner of the Good Vibrations Centre, the process can reduce stress, improve athletic and musical performance, and increase concentration. A profile of this drug-free form of brain training in The New York Times mentions its use as a treatment for both ADHD and autism. Neurofeedback systems can help people learn to be the boss of their own brainwaves. Neurofeedback is said to help with a variety of conditions, including slowing the brain's aging process and fighting specific conditions including insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety, migraines, and depression. Treatments can even boost intangibles, kickstarting personal growth and fueling greater success at artistic, business, and academic ventures. Like anything, neurofeedback only gets better with multiple visits- 12 to 20 visits are often enough to achieve goals?but results vary from person to person. While many clients notice benefits such as improved sleep and increased engagement after a single session, they can also unlock deeper, longer-lasting results with additional visits.
