  • Breathing Time Yoga
    Though Breathing Time Yoga is housed within an old jewelry textile mill built in the 1800s, its classes hearken back to an even earlier time. Beneath the lofty 20-foot ceilings, seasoned instructors—many of whom have completed several hundred hours of teacher training—practice ancient poses and breathing exercises designed to promote strength, flexibility, and inner peace. During heated yoga classes, they turn up the infrared heating system to deepen stretches, help bodies sweat out toxins, and prevent arctic penguins from waddling in and interrupting class. Within this communal practice area illuminated by the sunlight drifting through the oversize windows, they also host non-heated classes that explore the breath-fueled sequences of Vinyasa-style yoga, beginner yoga, transformation yoga, and stretch, strength, and stability yoga. In addition to leading yoga routines for students of all levels, the instructors supply free spring water, tea, and props. Mats are available for a $2 rental fee. After class, they encourage students to socialize in the reception room or browse the onsite library. Those interested in bolstering their mind-body connections may also schedule private meetings with a certified yoga therapist or personal coaching from yoga teachers.

  • Striking Beauties
    When conjuring up the image of a serious boxer, it's natural for most people to picture a brawny man who is dripping with sweat, missing his teeth, and wearing a prosthetic bee stinger. Striking Beauties' founder, Dena Paolino—pretty, petite, and powerful female boxer—wanted to change that. Knowing that many females felt out of place in the male-dominated sport, Dena spearheaded her all-female boxing gym in 2009 to introduce fellow women to the exhilarating and physically demanding sport of boxing in a uninhibited, comfortable environment. At the 24-hour studio, electric-pink walls beam down on cardio equipment, free weights, and punching bags. Here, Dena and her staff of certified instructors lead the studio's signature boxing workouts, which have been praised by an abundance of media publications. In each session, coaches lead energetic rounds of intense exercises and boxing movements designed to tone muscles, strengthen cores, and slim physiques, as well as boost self-confidence and determination. The staff also strives to build a sense of community amongst members, cultivating a space where women can encourage each other and network.

  • Breeze Against Wheeze 5K run or 3K walk
    Devised in 2001 by a Brown University medical student in order to support Hasbro Children's Hospital's Asthma Camp, the annual Breeze Against Wheeze 5K run and 3K walk raises a quarter of the funds the camp needs each year to educate youngsters about managing a disease that stands as the leading cause of child hospitalization nationwide. At the start of the race, athletes trek across the Brown University campus and down Blackstone Boulevard, speeding past other runners or strolling at a heart-healthy pace to show their anti-asthma verve. The top competitor in each age bracket, plus the three fastest men and women overall, win a bounty of gift certificates and sports gear to help fuel their future challenges, while postrace raffles lend the chance for any participant to be crowned a winner. Before the adult events, kids can race for free, testing their endurance and agility without crawling through the TV screen into their favorite video game.
