Yoga Inlet’s highly skilled instructors, all of whom are professionally certified and one of whom is a physical therapist, aim to help their students spark vitality and short-circuit stress. The studio’s specialty style is Svaroopa, a gentle type of Hatha that focuses on alignment and uses support over the course of up to 14 poses per class. Yoga+Plus, a more classic Hatha style, focuses on the relationship between movement and breath while increasing students’ strength, flexibility, and ability to catch butterflies in jars. Tai chi/qigong is also available. Choose from 17 class times in a given week; the studio provides all class essentials, so no one need bring their own equipment.

A driver curls his fingers around the steering wheel, takes a deep breath, and places his foot onto the peddle, bringing a mechanical beast to life. The screech of burning rubber, roar of an 500-horsepower engine, and the silent rush of adrenaline block out the rest of the world, allowing the driver to focus entirely on the run. As he battles the g-force, the realization hits that he has just achieved a lifelong dream: He is a drag racer.
Doug Foley first noticed the lack of a comprehensive drag-racing training center in 1997, and he took it upon himself to fill the void. Along with a team of instructors, Foley lets novices ride shotgun or drive themselves to taste drag racing for the first time. Once the new racers are hooked, a lineup of beginner to advanced classes licenses students for everything from junior dragsters, to door cars and A-fueled dragsters. Through these efforts, Foley and his team ready drivers to compete in professional races and fulfill a dream.

Taking up three studios inside the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, Berks Ballet Theatre Conservatory of Dance teaches ballet, tap, jazz, and modern dance to students aged 3 and older. Each rung up the conservatory ladder features more responsibility for students and more technique-based training from owner Nathan Bland and his staff. Once students reach Ballet 3 or higher, they can try out for performances at the Berks Ballet Theatre, a pre-professional theater that has been orchestrating performances, such as its annual Nutcracker performance, since 1976.
