  • Namaste Yoga - Niagara
    Instructor Linda Summers strives to instill within each of her students the important life lessons that yoga has taught her—to slow down, celebrate each day, and embrace the goodness in every living thing. Linda has been carving out a healthy lifestyle for two decades through her work as a personal trainer, Pilates instructor, and spin instructor, but it's been her decade of yoga practice that has truly shaped her outlook on life. Over the years, Linda has studied under many notable yogis, including Twee Merrigan. Now she shepherds aspiring yogis of all levels along the path of physical, mental, and spiritual discipline—which leads the traveller toward wisdom and away from the lies crooned by late-night infomercials—through small Vinyasa and Hatha yoga classes. During these classes, Linda teaches her students to marry controlled breath with a flow of athletic and remedial postures as she gently adjusts their forms. Her studio's earthy walls surround students in tranquility as she inspires them to feel the strength and vibrancy that yoga has taught her to realize within herself.

  • Pro Dojos
    At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.

  • The New You
    The New You's owner and health coach Mary Ellen Graham combines the techniques of hot-stone and fitness massages in 60- and 90-minute treatments. For about 10 minutes, a fitness machine vibrates away muscle stiffness and aims to boost metabolism, phase out cellulite, and increase muscle elasticity. Next, hands apply hot stones to specific body coordinates, allowing radiant heat to seep into muscles like hot sauce into cheesecakes, easing aches and aiming to improve circulation. Heat expands blood vessels, assuages nerves, and may ease symptoms of insomnia and arthritis. Therapists may recalibrate body vibes using additional modalities such as reiki, aromatherapy, reflexology, and tuning forks.
