Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with relaxing yoga classes and supportive personal-training sessions in a tranquil spa setting. Within the serene yoga studio, pupils fluidly glide into seated, reclined, and standing postures during stress-melting Hatha yoga as soft lighting radiates from sloped ceilings and wooden pillars maintain stoic tree poses. Students may also contact Whole Body Studio and Spa to enroll in specialized classes, such as therapeutic prenatal yoga or the Mom and Baby Yoga class, which whimsically whisks new mothers and infants through rejuvenating asanas.

Martyn Luberti traces his career back to the 1960s, when America's interest in alternative therapy first started to peak. Since then, Martyn has stuck with holistic therapies, exploring both acupuncture and homeopathy before settling on massage. He has been practicing for 16 years, and begins each and every session with a consultation to help him construct a unique massage based on his client's needs and treatment goals. His repertoire combines traditional massage, including the Swedish style, with more exotic therapies, including sensory repatterning, which uses gentle rocking to uncork stressful mental and physical patterns like a bottle of bubbling maple syrup at a waffle-house grand opening.
Sacred Rhythms Wellness Center's eight highly trained staffers aim to diffuse ailments with a suite of holistic services, from traditional massage to pain-relieving acupuncture.

Clients can also indulge in organic facials blended from fruits, vegetables, spices, minerals, and vitamins, and the center's own skincare line, Sacred Skin, is also formulated in-house using naturally sourced, organic ingredients. The center offers yoga, tai chi, and meditation classes.
