Vara Healing Arts helps clients relax and recuperate from injury or stress in three ways. Their instructors teach several different styles of yoga including ashtanga, hatha flow, and vinyasa; and their classes aim to calm the mind, ease discomfort, and strengthen the body. Licensed massage therapists perform more than two dozen specialty and advanced body treatments from acupuncture and aromatherapy massage to crystal therapy and reflexology. Finally, the relaxation center features eight-person saunas, where raised temperatures can induce sweating that purifies the skin, purges toxins from the body, and exercises lazy sweat glands.

YogaKula's hardwood-floored studios play host to all-levels yoga classes, as well as advanced ones that challenge physiques with handstands and arm balances. However, despite its name, yoga is just one facet of the studio's mission. The teachers also host Reformer-based Pilates classes, and the onsite spa offers myriad relaxing treatments. Thai massages, for example, release muscle tension with assisted yoga poses, and facials combat aging, dryness, and your eyes' slow drift down to your neck. In addition to classes, instructors also offer workshops, training programs, and community gatherings, all of which are designed to fully engage with the various ways in which yoga and pilates promote physical and mental health.
