  • Elements Yoga & Wellness Center
    Before founding Elements Yoga and Wellness Center, Bruce Bassock and Donna Kuebler practiced poses and breathing exercises to battle the stress of careers in stock trading and event planning. They left behind the daily grind to found the studio and since then, their award-winning studio has been featured in Yoga Journal and the New York Times. Students of all levels participate in Align and Musical Flow classes, where they stretch and bend to a mix of popular tunes that help dissolve anxiety. Seasoned instructors also lead one-on-one yoga training and a 10-week prenatal course that shows moms how to pose while holding a baby or chasing a runaway Radio Flyer. After a challenging mind-body workout, students can soothe their muscles with massage therapy and reflexology, which are available by appointment.

  • Darien Marshal Arts
    Years before he would teach hand-to-hand combat to Special Forces candidates or have his studio voted the best of 2011 and 2012 by CT.com, Andrew Scala was stuck in traffic. As he inched down a clogged I-95 on his way back from New York and his job as a sales representative, he made a decision that changed his life. The next day, he quit his job, sold his car, and bought a plane ticket to Japan, where a friend was studying martial arts. He arrived three days later, beginning an eight-year stay in Hokkaido, where he eventually trained daily beneath the great-grandson of a samurai. At one point, he and two of his colleagues were invited to demonstrate their skills in front of more than 300 high-ranking Japanese military officials. Andrew not only mastered styles such as aikido, karate, and iaido, but also immersed himself in Japanese culture and learned to speak fluently, opening the door for the lifelong bond he shares with his teacher. Today, Andrew runs Darien Martial Arts Academy based on a philosophy that values integrity, honor, and self-discipline alongside physical skill. He lavishes his rich depth of knowledge upon students, teaching them the basics of Japanese with each lesson. As they grow curious, he relates the modern practice of martial arts to tales about the "truly intelligent and also fierce" nature of the samurai, erasing misconceptions along the way. "All those things are useful tools for helping children get motivated, not just for martial arts, but to become good students, good musicians, good athletes, good people," Andrew said, noting that as they train their minds with martial arts, the benefits spill into other aspects of life. His students bring in their report cards to show him their successes—and they also know that "if a student is good [at the academy] but he's starting to be disrespectful at home, he comes here and he pays for it here." He trains all ages of students, who typically begin with karate and then train in other styles or master weapons—the long and short staff, sword, and chain. He periodically brings his best students on trips to train at his old dojo in Japan, watching them develop a lifelong love of Japanese culture as they see him integrate easily into his old home. But though he takes martial arts seriously, Andrew makes classes fun and encourages each of his students. He's known for telling jokes and keeping the sessions lighthearted. "You don't have to be mean to be strong," he said. "The strongest guys I know are also the funniest guys I know."

  • JoyRide Cycle Studio
    "When the lights go down and the music turns up, there's this sense of peace that goes throughout the room, and we're just ready," says one student of JoyRide's energetic spin classes. That atmosphere is just what JoyRide Cycling Studio intended—from the club-like lighting to music that often comes from a live rock band, every element of the studio is designed to forge a challenging, blissful workout. And cycling is just the beginning. Although the studio focuses on spinning, they also offer a variety of other classes—including TabataRide, cycling interspersed with 20-second high-intensity interval drills, and SpinSculpt, 35 minutes of spinning and 25 of muscle-sculpting. In addition, other fitness sessions target areas the cycles don't touch—JoyFusion blends Pilates with strength training, JoySculpt grants a full-body workout, and JoyMama features workouts tailored for new mothers.
