The 7 experienced instructors at Yoga Sol harmonize their disparate backgrounds to bring students a well-rounded yoga practice. Owner Tara Clay brings expertise in clinical psychology, whereas CJ Lamborn contributes her experience as a Pilates instructor and understanding of the healing power of yoga. Marlena Salinas has a compelling story—trained as a hypnotherapist, she started practicing yoga after the birth of her son and uses language to help clients release pain as well as gain confidence. This is just a snapshot of the studio's staff, but it embodies the wealth of knowledge behind each session, be it Hot Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, or restorative Yin. The instructors teach students of all experience levels, tailoring sessions for injured participants, expectant mothers, and people who are primarily made out of pretzels. Practice areas adjoin a retail space with yoga mats and blocks.

For more than three decades, ABC Tree Farms have provided the Bay Area with seasonal fun October through December. Summer inspires the first round of recreation in the form of Summer Fun Zones packed with inflatable bounce houses masquerading as castles and slides and fresh harvests of local cherries, peaches, melons, and other fruits. During October, they run 20 pumpkin-themed locations, some of which also feature inflatable bounce houses and other attractions. Once Thanksgiving passes, groves of Christmas trees spring up, having made their way south from Oregon and Washington. There they will stand until Christmas Eve, hoping to decorate homes or become the model that inspires a revamped line of evergreen air fresheners.
Uno Chicago Grill's epicurean engineers craft traditional deep-dish pies, which beckon hungry stomachs from an expansive menu of classic Italian and international fusion fare. Pizza patrons ignite appetites with gourmet appetizers, such as buffalo-chicken quesadillas ($10.99), before diving head first into a robust selection of deep-dish pizzas.

Uno Chicago's other stomach-satiating options run the gamut from small- and full-size pasta plates ($7.49+/$12.49+) to juicy burgers ($9.29+) and certified Angus steaks ($16.99+).
Brothers Ben and Jon Campopiano didn't start their careers by just appearing out of a cornfield like Shoeless Joe Jackson does in every sports movie. Both Ben and Jon coached baseball at Northgate High School, where they led teams into the post-season and helped youth athletes hone their skills. Today, Ben works as the Director of Baseball Operations at Santa Clara University, and Jon serves as Northgate High School's Vice Principal. At Bronco Baseball Academy, they distill their years of expertise into weeklong camps for players aged 5–13 years. Along with their fellow baseball instructors, the brothers Campopiano lead drills and games that focus on all aspects of the game: throwing, catching, hitting, base running, and everything in between. They also work alongside a certified athletic trainer, who ensures players stay safe and healthy throughout each day of training.
