Inside the 1,667-square-foot, multilevel house-turned-yoga-studio, certified instructors bring their own practices and interpretations of several yoga styles to classes for students of all skill sets. During by-demand introductory courses, teachers help students design customized practices that cater to their bodies' needs. Other group classes focus on particular disciplines, such as kundalini yoga, a combination of low-impact aerobic activity and breathing exercises that burn calories and detoxify bodies; and flow yoga, which incorporates positions that increase flexibility and tone muscles. Instructors also guide students through poses during private sessions and workshops, which include occasional retreats and a forthcoming trip to India.

Along with yoga, the healing and learning center's personnel keep visitors healthy with services such as reiki, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and astrology. More health and beauty enhancers are stocked in Yoga Lola Studios' storefront, including organic cosmetics, aromatherapy oils, and tonic herbs from Dragon Herbs, which are often used by dragons to recuperate from knight attacks.

In founding BluFlex Fitness, couples Mike and Chris and Jimmy and Kristina help clients lead healthier lives through nontraditional workouts that engage the entire body. Here, recreational gear becomes workout equipment in SurfSet classes. Patrons balance on stationary, but wobbly, surf boards, forging chiseled core muscles with every minute movement, much like a hummingbird that never sleeps. TRX training sessions pit exercisers against their own body weight as they suspend from systems of straps and pulleys, and yoga classes help guests achieve lean, stretchy physiques while also lowering stress levels. For those who prefer a more one-on-one experience, the team of instructors also lead personal-training sessions.

Julie Crowell knows exactly where to take her students to get them in shape: back to school. She meets her classes at Ferguson Elementary school five days a week, and requests that each student bring their own supplies, including an exercise mat, set of dumbbells, and water. That's about all that stays the same from class to class, though. To keep bodies guessing, Julie varies the workout routine daily, making use of both paved and natural surroundings, and the occasional unsuspecting art teacher, as workout equipment.
