All eight of the instructors at Turiya Yoga have an RYT 200 certification from Yoga Alliance, which means they have completed 200 hours of accredited yoga training. They put their experience to good use in an array of yoga classes, which center around the classic styles of Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, and Vinyasa yoga. Most classes are open to all skill and fitness levels, except for the more challenging Ashtanga-yoga sessions, which require students to transition between more than 70 postures while peeling an avocado. Owner and instructor Melissa Prouty is also a certified birth doula and offers doula services and birthing workshops.

The Moving Factor's team tackles all the eye-glazing tasks of moving, from packing and loading to acquiring information about schools and setting up utilities. Backed by cargo and liability insurance, crew members arrange items in their truck for long-distance moves or local moves. Their expertise extends to delicate cargo such as musical instruments and art, which they swaddle in packing paper or bubble wrap and place in specially designed boxes. To safely move pianos and furniture, they disassemble and reassemble them at the new location. They can also assist in relocating pets, moving friendly felines or pooches looking for a doghouse in a better school district.
Los Jimadores is the Mexican term for the skilled farmers who cultivate the hearts (or pi?as) of blue agave plants, so crucial to the production of tequila. These pi?as can weigh anywhere from 40 to 200 pounds and require its harvester to answer a devilish riddle. It's not a job for the weak of arm, but the heavenly results of that labor can be tasted in Los Jimadores' signature margaritas, including the Herradura French margarita and coconut margarita. These drinks will find no shortage of dance partners on the expansive menu, which aims to cover all bases on both sides of the border: traditional tacos and enchiladas with homemade corn and flour tortillas, Tex-Mex chimichangas, guacamole made tableside, chorizo-laced breakfast omelets. The equally ambitious desserts offset fried ice cream with the pastel imposible, a gravity-flouting blend of flan and chocolate cake. Los Jimadores can also host parties of up to 80 people in a private room.
The licensed and insured, professional exterminators from Natural Habitat wield EPA-registered chemicals in their battle against household pests. Home and business owners plagued by pesky critters such as mosquitoes, bed bugs, fleas, and rats can sign up for services on a one-time or ongoing basis—often necessary when spider families designate structures as a vacation home. When faced with a termite colony, the team lays down baiting systems around slabs, piers, and beams, and attacks mosquitoes with exterior misting systems.
