After turning to Bikram yoga to ease her chronic hip, shoulder, and hand pains, seasoned yogi Patty Gray realized a dream in bringing this healing practice to her own community. At Bikram Yoga Granite Bay, she leads a diverse team of certified instructors?which includes a dietitian, a marathon runner, and a former DJ?that helps students of all ages and abilities reach their fitness goals with 26 dynamic postures. These postures, or asanas, include both seated and standing positions and are performed in the detoxifying humidity of a 105-degree room. During each 90-minute sweat session, instructors help students to let go of their competitive nature while improving their strength, balance, and ability to fold themselves neatly into a suitcase.
A graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography, Trenton Bahr turns routine senior portraits and family photos into masterpieces worthy of passing down to future generations. Each step in the artist's process—the result of decades of experience—ensures that every portrait deserves to hang for years to come. Before each session, he works hand-in-hand with clients to choose an ideal backdrop for the shoot, either in his outdoor portrait park or his indoor studio. He also helps select sensible outfits that will prove timeless as the years go on, such as crisp button-down shirts.
During a shoot, Trenton puts families, pets, and kids at ease with his comfortable charm, allowing their personality to shine through every image by highlighting their natural reactions and genuine smiles.
Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights. To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.
Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.

The high-intensity sessions are tailored for women of all experience levels and designed to tone cores and build endurance. The Kaia flow class stretches muscles and helps center students through yoga exercises.
