In the year 2000, after hundreds of hours of yoga practice, workshops, and conferences, Tanya Edwards's hard work culminated in the opening of her very own studio, Art of Yoga. And today, alongside her team of certified yoga teachers, Tanya helps practitioners of all experience levels build strong bodies and sound minds with an eclectic teaching style grounded in the Hatha yoga tradition. The serene, sage-colored studio heats up to a balmy 95 degrees during hot yoga, a 90-minute routine of stretching and sweating that encourages the body to expel harmful toxins, such as liquefied body parts of T-1000. Other class styles include a gentler restorative class, an intense core-centric yoga class, and a Bollywood fusion class that infuses low-impact Eastern dances with Western fitness techniques.
Ride On Bikes’ specialists match customers with a two-wheeled transport to fit their needs, whether they’re exploring downtown Columbus or off-roading in a neighbor’s backyard sandbox.

The helpful staff can also suggest ideal routes for any type of excursion. Should clients seek repairs on their own bikes, the team provides free estimates before restoring their rides.
Dr. Jay Brodwyn does more than adjust spines at his eponymous chiropractic practice.

Dr. Brodwyn is just one of the three chiropractors at the practice; the team as a whole offers an even wider variety of treatments. Drawing on methods from manual adjustments to the instrument-based Graston Technique, they can alleviate ailments such as headaches and lower-back pain.
Dr. Joseph Ceravolo completed his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Buffalo before establishing his practice in Georgia to improve patients' vision with expert refractive surgeries. Dr. Ceravolo uses skills developed as a board-certified member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology to repair eyes clouded over with cataracts or distressed by glaucoma instead of trading peepers for a pair of googly eyes from an arts-and-crafts store. Brief LASIK surgeries treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and other issues with laser sessions that last minutes and require little downtime. North Columbus Eye Center also monitors the ocular condition of diabetes patients, ensuring that worsening conditions are met with appropriate care.
