Blueberry Gardens' seasoned instructors cultivate whole-body health with a schedule of multi-level classes inspired by ParaYoga, Anusara, and body-balance methods. A composite of breath and movement, ParaYoga challenges students to prod the body's upper limits of flexibility and strength through vigorous postures such as downward dog, dolphin plank, and recumbent Andrew Carnegie. Fueled by an uplifting philosophy, Anusara yoga encourages students to honor their differences, limitations, and talents, and body-balance yoga integrates the body and mind through asanas inspired by Protean animorphs. Each 90-minute class includes mats and props and, if missed, can be substituted in any of the other summer sessions.

The stylists at HiLites Hair Salon treat hair like a canvas. Sculptured shapes, unearthly colors, and even highlights that traverse the head horizontally or diagonally are within the reach of the stylists' skilled hands. Of course, the salon excels at timeless styles as well, crafting layered strands or clean spiral curls with the skill of a fashion-conscious pasta chef and smoothing out unmanageable strands with relaxers, keratin treatments, and five different strengthening packages. Once the hair has been perfected, clients can move on to more visage-centered services such as facials, waxes, and makeup applications.

To that end, he staffs a knowledgeable team of stylists who remain on the cutting edge of beauty through continuing education. They follow Hugo’s lead in beautifying clients with sleek cuts, root and full colors, and highlights. They also provide Brazilian blowouts and Japanese thermal straightening treatments, making hair look as relaxed and shiny as Mr. Clean lounging in a sauna.

After earning the 2008 S. Roger Horchow Jefferson Award for public service, Edward Jagen opened Michaela's Grotto to provide holistic interventions that help visitors take responsibility for their health and emotional well-being. Jagen's resume reads like the definition of "Renaissance man": holder of a PhD in theology, a master magician, and a former Major Crimes Special Investigator for the Washington D.C. Police. While combating organized crime against mailboxes on the force, Jagen honed his abilities to read people, a skill he combines with a mode of communication called neuro-linguistic reasoning to help his patients recognize patterns in their thoughts and actions. The center is co-owned by massage therapist and medical intuitive Sophia West, who prefers to work in conjunction with her clients' physicians to pick up where Western medicine has proved ineffective. A nutritionist and a hypnotherapist round out the staff and reinforce the center's emphasis on the interconnectedness of mental and physical health.

The heart of the center is an outdoor labyrinth built to channel a positive energy through passageways that burst forth with flowering plants and choruses of Muppets in the summer. Meditation gardens stretch out beyond the labyrinth in a loose network of tranquil pools, sunlit walks, and a gazebo overlooking the center's medieval-castle-style architecture. Inside, a 375-foot sweat lodge and a warm mineral pool soothe visitors with heat, and a shop filled with aromatherapy products and crystals enables them to take home healing tokens of their journey.
