  • Vibrant Studios
    When she lived in Houston, Sophie managed the acclaimed restaurant Pondicheri, worked at the Houston Farmer's Market, and played piano and cello at various schools and organizations. No matter how crowded her schedule became, she centered herself by practicing yoga daily, a routine she brought with her to Portland in 2011. Today, her primary passion is still yoga—her team of experienced instructors leads daily sessions at Vibrant Studios. The teachers offer a smorgasbord of vinyasa flow classes, and they also touch on more advanced approaches by incorporating hypnotherapy or catering to musicians who want to be flexible enough to sleep inside their french horns. With its wide hardwood floors and soaring ceilings, Vibrant Studios' 1,800-square-foot main studio welcomes visitors with a sense of bright, open space. Natural light streams through three skylights to illuminate the yoga and dance classes that are held there daily, and a high-quality audio system takes advantage of natural acoustics to fill the whole space with sound. Work from local artists decorates the rest of the facility, which includes a back room for private consultations and bodywork, as well as a kitchen where guests can pick up complimentary tea before or after each class. Striving to encourage mindful living in all its forms, the staff also hosts workshops on topics from herbal medicine to sustainable business, as well as themed dinners designed to build community through sharing stories.

  • Fred Astaire Dance Studio Portland
    The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds adults of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the cha-cha. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of tango, swing, or rumba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice provides a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

  • StudioNia
    According to the founders of Nia, the cliche "no pain, no gain" is not only played out, it's also completely false. The Nia Technique developed over more than a decade by Debbie Rosas and Carlos AyaRosas, takes the complete opposite approach, synthesizing dance, martial arts, and healing arts into a painless, pleasant fitness regimen. Eschewing the repetitive movements of conventional gym routines or trendy workouts that force you to lift the same car over your head everyday, Nia classes set varied stretching, strength training, and non-impact aerobic exercises to a diverse soundtrack that includes jazz, pop, hip-hop, and Indian music. Other aspects, such as its repertoire of 52 moves, are akin to yoga, while additional elements are drawn from martial arts, such as the belt system and the fact that participants do not wear shoes. The diverse origins of the program are reflected in the diverse countries where it has taken root: Nia is practiced in more than 45 countries, from Belgium to New Zealand to Israel to Mexico.

  • Hui O Hoaloha Hula
    Studying under Kumu Hula Rich Pedrina has inspired Kimberly Clark to build on her passion for everything hula. She started Hui O Hoaloha Hula to share that passion and educate students about Hawaiian culture. In keeping the steps relatively simple and easy to learn, she ensured that the classes could be taught to anybody who's curious. She has also incorporated Hot Hula Fitness classes, using the dance's natural style of isolations to build specific muscle groups in 60-minute, full-body workouts. She keeps the workouts upbeat and energized with a selection of Polynesian drum beats and Reggae music. The combination of tunes and dance celebrates Polynesian cultures from around the world.
