Fusion Mind/Body’s instructors teach students the worldly art of frame folding in an intimate, supportive setting. A healthy schedule of yoga classes ensures that students of all abilities can find a course that suits their body-torquing needs. Novitiate limb limberers can drop in for an introductory Yoga 101 course, while more experienced practitioners can boost their physical strength and mastery of The Force with an Ashtanga (Power) Yoga session, which focuses on controlled poses and breathing techniques. Students also get access to any of the studio's slate of classes in Pilates and Yogilates, a combined practice that includes poses derived from popular portmanteaus, such as the Craisin, the Unicorn, and the Spork. To ensure that all students receive one-on-one instruction from their instructor, Fusion keeps each class intentionally small.

Nadia, the founder of Institute of Bath and Body, applies her master's degree in molecular biology, microbiology, and biochemistry to the creation of bath and beauty products, crafting luxurious and elegant creations from all-natural, botanical ingredients. During her lotions-and-creams class, students delve into the chemical processes of creating emulsions, working with common ingredients and additives, and memorizing the treaty that liberated soap from the soggy clutches of their dishes. Students then blend their own 4-ounce lotion and 4-ounce cream to take home, personalized with a scent of their choosing. A sweet sugar-scrub class permits pupils to experiment with different exfoliating formulas for dry skin, oily skin, or lips, exiting the course with samples of all of their creations. Students can also opt for a cold-process soap-making course, during which they’ll cover sudsy topics such as chemistry, safety, and color and fragrance additives. All attendees take home a reusable mini-mold and a quality bar of soap ideal for sprucing up the guest bathroom or cleaning out the expletive-laden mouths of neighborhood archdukes.
