Innerlight and its crew of mind-body gurus whisk students away to a stress-free world, heralded as Best Place for Yoga by The Phoenix, with more than 50 yoga classes per week. Stretching students can join the Basics session to develop a flexible foundation of basic poses, and pupils in the heated Vinyasa class unite movement and breath while emptying pores of sweat, toxins, and vagabond dust bunnies. The Mindfulness Yoga class combines poses and meditation to hone concentration and body awareness, and the Therapeutics class targets specific corporal areas to relieve pain and stress. The studio's class calendar allows budding yogis to find a class that challenges their minds and bodies, but not their schedules.

General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.

For students seeking an athletic total-body workout, New Haven Strength & Fitness provides the popular Les Mills Bodyattack and Bodypump classes, which combine sport exercises with pumping music and dynamic instructors. Most classes are of the drop-in variety unless otherwise noted in the course description or on the online schedule.
