  • Power Life Yoga
    The aura around the historic Board of Trade Building is about to get a whole lot more energized. That's because of the building's newest tenant: Power Life Yoga. The pioneering studio brings its brand of energetic yoga and powerful human connection to a brand-new KC location, where students can take classes ranging from beginner yoga and heated power yoga to trendy boot camp and barre sessions. After class, students can unwind in the well-appointed locker rooms, or browse a yoga shop stocked with plenty of boutique brands. No matter what they're doing, students will likely notice the studio's welcoming, beginner-friendly atmosphere. That's no accident; openness rests at the heart of the studio's values. Or, as Power Life's Michelle Howe puts it, "The hard work, the discipline, the focus on community and relationships: these are all Midwestern values. We’ve seen what yoga can do in people’s lives and we want to bring that to Kansas City."

  • CCW Pros
    Unlike many of its competitors, CCW Pros is not necessarily interested in selling you a handgun. In fact, many of the family-friendly business's beginner-level courses are designed with safety in mind, catering both to those who own their own firearms as well as to those who may never purchase one. In doing so, the instructors cover basic handgun-safety principles such as how the fight-or-flight instinct can affect variables in self-defense situations and the benefits of the Center Axis Relock technique. At the same time, they foster a non-intimidating environment that welcomes teens and seniors. The CCW Pros instructors specialize in concealed-carry courses and they also lead NRA-approved classes, tactical defensive pistol courses, and women's self-defense courses, among other programs.

Meanwhile, off the course friends, families, and party guests engage in friendly competition on the facility's arcade games and pool tables, or celebrate special occasions in its party rooms. The raceway also hosts corporate events combined with special team-building exercises, such as the blindfold challenge, where a blindfolded driver is guided by a teammate via walkie-talkie.
