"Our bodies and minds are closely interconnected. Our state of mind is expressed in physical phenomena, and, conversely, physical phenomena reflect our state of mind," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee, "Nothing is impossible. Keep working on it until it's possible. There is no failure, just the gradual process of success." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance. Dahn Yoga is also taught at independently owned and operated franchises called Body & Brain Yoga.

Drawing from his career as a nationally ranked junior and as a tennis star at Towson University (NCAA Division 1), Nitin Deodhar, a United States Professional Tennis Association instructor, passes on his orb-smashing savvy at Bethesda Tennis Academy. Scored to the rhythms of shuffling shoes and baseline rallies, Nitin and his staff impart their on-court wisdom during private lessons and clinics for both juniors and adults. Their curriculum ranges from sessions that focus on techniques and strategy, including playing doubles and bribing the ref, to sessions that focus more on cardio.
To accommodate its bustling slate of private and group instruction, Bethesda Tennis Academy makes use of three different locations: Seven Locks Swim & Tennis Club, Old Georgetown Swim and Tennis Club, and Carderock Springs Swim and Tennis Club.
