At Spirit Rising Yoga & Healing, the 2011 and 2013 winner of CityVoter's Best Yoga Studio award, yogic poses double as medicine for the body, mind, and soul. Owners Stacey and Jeff Coffey help their students find a peaceful way to navigate the tension and obstacles present in everyday life. Stress melts and muscles strengthen during private yoga instruction and expert-led classes, which range from athletic Ashtanga sessions to gentle Yin routines that bolster connective tissue in the hips and spine. Complimentary mats, pillows, blocks, and belts may be borrowed to assist students' practice or Rube Goldberg machines. In addition to leading yoga, vinyasas, and meditation classes, the studio specializes in alternative healing techniques, such as reiki, massage therapy, and auricular acupuncture, that retune the body's natural energy flow.
For more than three decades, ABC Tree Farms have provided the Bay Area with seasonal fun October through December. Summer inspires the first round of recreation in the form of Summer Fun Zones packed with inflatable bounce houses masquerading as castles and slides and fresh harvests of local cherries, peaches, melons, and other fruits. During October, they run 20 pumpkin-themed locations, some of which also feature inflatable bounce houses and other attractions. Once Thanksgiving passes, groves of Christmas trees spring up, having made their way south from Oregon and Washington. There they will stand until Christmas Eve, hoping to decorate homes or become the model that inspires a revamped line of evergreen air fresheners.
