World Gym maintains its 25-year legacy of body-sculpting know-how at its West Babylon location, jump-starting workout routines with cardio equipment, free weights, and an expert staff of personal trainers. After running, jumping, lifting, or stretching, exercisers can linger at the smoothie bar to slurp up chilled energy before retiring to the locker rooms and hitting the showers. Beyond the fitness equipment, members can make use of the gym's other amenities, including tanning services and chiropractors who wrestle tension out of knotted muscles.
The instructors at Yoga Darshana Center believe that yoga is more than a series of stretches and breathing—it's a peaceful mindset and a unity of mind, body, and spirit that exists both on and off the yoga mat. For the past 11 years, the not-for-profit center has been helping students of all ages, abilities, and beliefs to reach this inner peace through yoga classes, retreats, and community activities. During these sessions, they teach students to stretch muscles, tone up their bodies, and develop deeper bodily awareness so they can hear their spleens’ innermost thoughts. They further unite their community by hosting inspirational movies, lectures, and healing circles to help students mend and reenergize from the inside out. For students who would like to start on a path to yoga instruction, Yoga Darshana Center's dedicated yogis also run a 200- and 500-hour teacher-training program. The training program is geared toward teaching not only the postures of yoga, but also the tradition and spiritual, philosophical background of the process.
Svetlana Caton-Noble and Venti Petrov's mission is to promote cultural awareness through performances that combine the traditional European legacy of dance with contemporary American influences. When not sparking audiences' sensory centers with beautiful renditions of The Nutcracker, Coppélia, or Danses D'Automne, co-directors and instructors Svetlana and Venti can be found teaching students of all ages and experience levels how to properly imitate swans without attracting the attention of avid bird hunters. Their nonprofit dance company also brings Dance as a Second Language programs to the community's public schools.:m]]

The professional musicians who teach at New York Academy of Music believe talent appears at a young age. That's why their music programs start for kids as young as 2 years old with Rock 'n' Tots, a class where pre-kindergarten kids can listen to rock and pop while they bop and learn. Once students have excelled beyond the bounds of Rock 'n' Tots, they can attend the RockStar Academy—where they'll learn how to perform and write songs—or take private lessons that cover nearly all instruments and styles. For seasoned performers, an onsite recording studio provides a place to lay down tracks.
