Though she took her first yoga class when she was a teenager in 1992, it wasn't until Piera Chodorow Meil discovered Baron Baptiste's style of power Vinyasa yoga in 2006 that she began to seriously pursue her practice. After training under notable yogis such as Bill Raup and Bikram Choudhury—the founder of Bikram yoga—Piera opened her own studio, Yogi Power Yoga, to share her passion with students of all experience levels. Performed in a heated space to foster detoxification and help muscles to sink into deep stretches, the dynamic style of power yoga challenges practitioners to link a series of flowing postures with deep, mindful breaths. This idea of mindfulness extends to Yogi Power Yoga's physical practice space—environmentally friendly practices are used whenever possible, and much of the interior, including flooring, furnishings, and paint, consists of reclaimed or sustainable materials. Committed to helping its community, the studio offers donation-based classes and often partners with charity organizations, with initiatives that have included raising funds for the Farm Sanctuary, a rescue and refuge network for North American farm animals
The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.
When she was a host of Philadelphia morning news program “Eye Opener,” Marlie Hall consumed her fair share of coffee, donuts, and other breakfast goodies. Between her love for food, her job, and her lifestyle though, she didn’t think she could ever drop the weight she had put on from those treats. But through her efforts, she surprised herself—and the staff of the weight loss clinic—by losing 21 pounds. In her video testimony, she also attributes much of her success to her program’s herbal supplements, which she says curbed her appetite and filled her with energy.
Marlie’s journey is much like other success stories shared by Soza Clinic clients who have chosen its medically supervised weight loss programs.
