Jody and Bjorn Turnquist opened 3 Bridges Yoga with the philosophy that yoga should warmly embrace practitioners of all skill levels. As a result, they offer Vinyasa-style classes for beginners and advanced yogis. The Turnquists and other certified instructors teach postures and breathing techniques in a room heated to 75-80 degrees with lessons that focus on basic postures and alignments in addition to more intensified bending. With sun streaming through expansive windows and spilling out onto cork floors, their studio lends itself to a practice more peaceful than swimming through a pool of warm chamomile tea.

The staff at Arsenault Family Chiropractic Centers harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over target areas, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The gentle, noninvasive treatment requires little to no recovery time.
