Founder-director Isabel Benemelis grew up in Cuba, surrounded by the mambo tunes and Afro-Cuban rhythms that earned the country its reputation as a musical hot spot. At age 4 she took up the piano, and by 7 she found herself "mesmerized by the music of Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach" whenever it hit her ears. This immersion in multiple genres influenced Benemelis when she built her school from oboe reeds in 1995: faculty members specialize in classical music, but ably veer into jazz and Latin scores if students have an interest. During one-on-one, 30-minute lessons, they teach adults and children older than age 4 to play piano, guitar, saxophone, bongos, and a host of other instruments. In keeping with the school’s multidisciplinary roots, many instructors are also fluent in English and Spanish.

"Our brain is designed to realize what we wish, without any minor errors," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee, "If you want success, it will create success. If you want happiness or health, it will create them. Anything is possible, as long as negative thoughts and emotions don't interfere." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance. Dahn Yoga is also taught at independently owned and operated franchises called Body & Brain Yoga.

While many yoga studios claim to nurture minds as well as bodies, few have a library to back it up. Bikram Yoga Falls Church's staff indeed stand by their holistic approach to health by lending out books from a growing library as well as offering 39 classes a week. The team of certified instructors take the Bikram hot-yoga approach for these classes, which emphasize proper alignment and stillness throughout a vigorous, fixed series of 26 postures cycled through twice over the course of 90 minutes. Instructors help students stretch a wide range of muscles while increasing strength and encouraging determination and self-control with complex stretches and balances. Their yoga studios are heated to 105 degrees to deepen each stretch and detoxify the body. Instead of exercising with you or wearing masks and exercising as you, the staff circle the room, helpfully providing corrections on proper alignment and motivational words.
