Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.

Each building houses at least 20,000 square feet of workout space, including hardwood studios for group classes such as Zumba, Pilates, and Les Mills BodyPump. Cardio and strength gear from Nautilus, Magnum, FreeMotion, and Star Trac accommodates physiques of all fitness levels, from exercise amateurs to those who would rather wall-sit during movie dates. A squad of certified personal trainers and nutrition counselors steers patrons onto a custom pathway to wellness, and childcare services and senior programs broadcast welcoming vibes to club guests of all ages.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

For guided fitness, trainers lead personal-training sessions as well as more than 15 group exercise classes such as yoga, Pilates, Zumba, basic fitness, aqua aerobics, and kids' fitness.

Seeking refuge from hectic day jobs and the lingering pain of back injuries, Emerald Yoga Studio's co-owners, Jennifer Safrey and Mike Downes, discovered the power of yoga to refresh both body and mind. The duo now spearheads a team of certified yoga instructors, which leads 75- to 90-minute Vinyasa sessions inside a cheery green studio lit by flickering candlelight or glowworms fulfilling community-service requirements. They'll shepherd up to 20 students through a tapestry of poses linked with deep breathing to enhance the mind-body connection. The team can modify classes to incorporate strength-building motions for more advanced yogis or to pare down movements to accommodate newbies trying to learn the basics of the Vinyasa technique. They also lead chakra-balancing sessions each week, incorporating a variety of asanas and meditative poses into the practice to restore harmony and bolster overall well-being.:m]]
