Owner Lisa Golde and her staff of experienced instructors mold pliant participants of all levels into a miscellany of poses and postures during myriad yoga sessions within Body Kneads Yoga’s clean, comfortable studio. Ninety-minute classes such as the mellow flow and beginner Vinyasa flow ($15) allow newbies to spread their yoga wings next to fully soaring practitioners, while the two-hour integrative flow ($18) blends more intense physical poses with calming visualizations of shapeshifting from pretzels to pretzel buns. Hit up a morning power-hour Ashtanga mix class ($12) for an intermediate steeping in Ashtanga’s series of poses. The Shanti room bestows a room-temperature climate upon benders, while the 85-degree Rasa room ignites the gamma rays of caloric arson during heated sessions of Forrest yoga, drawing out increased flexibility in formerly taut muscles.
The expert aestheticians at Fresh Face Skincare Center refresh faces with custom combination of anti-aging treatments and skincare products. The 90-minute anti-aging Ultimate facial rejuvenates visages with a triple treatment of microdermabrasion, noninvasive infusion, and oxygen. The microdermabrasion session gently buffs away fine lines, age spots, and cookie crumbs, yielding similar results as a chemical peel, but generally with less irritation and no recovery time. Expression makers are then infused via ultrasound with a custom skincare recipe hand selected by the aesthetician to match your skin type. Lastly, pores catch their breath with an oxygen treatment, which suffuses skin with a refreshing dose of oxygen more easily than snuggling an oak tree. Like all treatments at Fresh Face Skincare Center, the anti-aging Ultimate facial includes thorough cleansing and exfoliation, steam and steam-towel, extractions, and facial mask, as well as a head, neck, shoulder, arm, and hand hot-stone massage.

Transcripts and translations of common chants include call-and-response mantras and campfire kumbayas.
