On the day when Everyday Yoga opened in 2010, the yogis behind the project prepared a pot of tea to warmly welcome in new practitioners. Their goal was to make yoga accessible to their community, regardless of financial restraints. Though the gentle aromas of that first pot of tea have long since faded, the instructors still uphold their community-minded mission, helping students to apply yogic philosophy to their lives, on and off the mat. They continue to serve up pots of hot tea daily to welcome students to their studio.
Amid EveryDay Yoga’s warm adobe walls and delicate pendant lamps, students of all ages and abilities flow through Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and restorative Yin series that range from slow and gentle to vigorous. The instructors strive to make the atmosphere as welcoming as possible so that guests can confidently reach for their toes, reach for their neighbors' toes, and practice resonant breath—which they’ve cheekily dubbed "Darth Vadar breath."

After experiencing personal tragedy, Ivy Mitchell turned to Zumba Fitness and discovered more than a standard workout program. She was not only losing weight and getting in shape, but also found herself smiling more and feeling happier. She attributes this emotional windfall to Zumba's ever-changing routines, fun environment, and community atmosphere. After experiencing this personal change, Ivy decided to share her passion with others by becoming an instructor, and she now leads classes at three Detroit-area Zoe Fitness locations.
Ivy's Zumba sessions fuse the funky beats of international rhythms with easy-to-pick-up moves. This process can help students lose pounds and wiggle hips without wearing a salt-shaker costume and waiting to be shook by the giant living next door.
After turning around his own well-being with a series of personal training sessions, Keith Mann felt that the benefits of his healthier lifestyle were too good not to share with others and became a personal trainer himself. At his private gym, Intense Personal Training, Keith works alongside fellow trainer Asa Grad, introducing trainees to the same cardio and weight equipment that they themselves use to stay in peak condition.
SVS Optical Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 50 locations sprawled across 10 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Optical Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
