Downtown Yoga’s clean, brightly colored studio accommodates chakra-seeking students of all levels on the road to body betterment. Yogis can firm up tired tissue and show stress the egress during a 45–90 minute yoga session or work on their core issues—including abs, lower back, and fear of commitment to watching every season of Hee Haw—with a Pilates-mat workout. Meanwhile, visitors seeking to hone their feet as percussion instruments can absorb rhythm in the African dance courses. Downtown Yoga’s highly qualified instructors also offer instruction in lesser known arts such as Qi Gong, a gentle rejuvenation practice, which clicks bodies into place like a rectified Rubik's Cube.

Students of all skill levels can hone their postures and breathing techniques during traditional yoga classes or test their mettle in Pi-Yo classes, which fuse Pilates movements and yoga poses to extract sweat from the body more effectively than police interrogations inside volcanoes. Though Ava Fitness Spa's salon section caters exclusively to women, both men and women are welcome to participate in fitness classes, which take place in a calming studio flanked by pastel-colored walls, expansive mirrors, and smooth hardwood floors.
Located next to the Sierra Meadows Country Club, Sierra Meadows RV Park sits at an elevation of 2,425 feet. From that height, it surveys a variety of national landmarks and sites, including Yosemite National Park and the Bass Lake recreation area. Nestled amidst this scenic beauty, the RV Park boasts a rustic setting with a volleyball court, laundry and shower facilities, and wireless-Internet access.
Adjacent to the RV Park is the golf course at the Sierra Meadows Country Club, which is cleaved into a mountain valley populated with mature oaks, pines, and cedars, producing a spectacular course yielding a gauntlet of obstacles. Nestled between the blanket of fog of the Central Valley below and snow higher up in the Sierra Nevadas, the 18-hole course stays open throughout the year so long as the fog and snow don't engage in water-cycle turf war. The par-3 fifth hole, the course's signature designed hole, combines mountainous scenery with the treachery of a 175-yard tee shot over a lake onto a contoured green, forcing golfers to select their club wisely or risk sending the ball into the watery abyss.
Prior to a round or after a dramatic finish, players can head to the driving range's turf hitting surfaces to smash balls at targets or take aim at an unassuming mountain peak. Large putting and chipping greens provide ample space for short-game improvement.

The mounded terrain and cavernous bunkers of Riverbend Golf Club's 18-hole, 7,374-yard course recall the windswept terrain of golf's original Scottish links. The distant peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains peek over the course's sparse population of valley oak trees, adding scenic flair to an environmentally friendly layout that houses egrets, herons, hawks, and winged divot tools. Both the front and back nine play to dramatic conclusions, as the 9th and 18th holes are the first and second most difficult on the course, respectively. The course strictly enforces a dress code, so players should dress in a collared shirt and leave behind jeans and hard-spiked stilettos, or and they can peruse the fully stocked pro shop for club-appropriate garb and new gear.
