Yoga is a great way to build core muscle strength and connect with your body. Lava Yoga offers a variety of classes and you can choose the level you would want to participate in. You can get a group of people to join and make it a fun way for you and your friends to socialize while being active or you can go by yourself and just work on staying relaxed and increasing your flexibility. Lava Yoga offers classes with varying temperatures and is open seven days a week so there's no chance of missing out. Take a couple of hours out of your day to relax and unwind from your busy schedule.

Leo Wong's Tae Kwon-Do & Krav Maga offers four martial arts programs: Tae Kwon-Do, Krav Maga, Tiny Tigers, and Boot Camps. If you haven't heard of Krava Maga before, it's a type of reality-based self-defense class that is easy to learn. Their two main principles are "positive mental attitude" and "high goal setting", many students come with varying degrees of ability and have different goals they want to achieve. The instructors work with each student one on one, so no one is left out and everyone can progress confidently towards their goals. This establishment has been running for over 45 years and has been committed to helping develop their students to be the best they can be.
