AuM Body & Soul Spa brings the ancient practices of Eastern cultures into a modern setting to let clients center their souls and renew their exteriors. The spa specializes in Ayurveda, a holistic method of healing that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. By using ancient herbs and specialized techniques, Ayurveda works to balance the elements of the body in order to heal and energize, much like a hug from Lady Justice.

Within the lobby of AuM Body & Soul Spa, dim lighting and exotic art greet guests as they begin their journey into ancient-eastern relaxation. Along with the tapestries on the walls, orchids and ferns guide them to one of nine specialized treatment rooms in the facility, where Ayurveda-trained massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians work with guests to individualize each treatment based on their personal desires. As the Eastern-influenced spa services work to open energy channels, intimate yoga classes help guests center their minds in seven diverse classes, along with specialty sessions that embrace the outdoors or help children relax after long days negotiating political treaties with the lunch lady. The spa champions all-natural products, including Aveda and Banyan Botanicals, which also line the spa's ample boutique shelves alongside skincare treatments, meditation books, and herbal supplements for purchase.

For many, being a professional singer is a distant and often unrealized dream. But for students of The Singing Experience, the reality gets more attainable, even if only for one night. That's because the program immerses performers in a singing workshop that teaches vocal techniques and helps them overcoms stage fright. At the end of the course, students sing a song in a live cabaret performance on the stage of The Triad.

All this was made possible by performer Linda Amiel Burns, who dreamed up The Singing Experience in 1977 as a way to help novice singers tackle their fears of performing and of sea witches stealing their voices. It's also become a valuable tool of expression. "You sing out anger, love, your problems," Burns told The New York Times in 2009. She knows what she's talking about—she founded the business after a divorce and has helped countless others since. She has also earned accolades along the way from CBS and Cabaret Scenes magazine. A member of SAG and AFTRA, Linda also lends her talents to various arts programs, and is a two-time winner of the MAC Award.

Some couples write their own marriage vows, while others?well, others prefer a more fiery expression of their love and commitment. At New York Wedding Ring, metal artist Sam Abbay helps couples forge their own engagement and wedding rings from raw precious metals, coins, and existing jewelry. At a studio replete with all the necessary equipment, Abbay will guide you and your significant other as you choose your raw material?like palladium, gold, and platinum?and conceive a design for rings that can even include engravings and settings for gemstones.

The process, which can take as little as four hours or as long as a day, includes melting the metals, annealing, and shaping. All the while, Abbay is on hand to offer advice such as how thick wedding rings should be and how to keep them polished if there are no automatic car washes in your area to run through. He can also work with clients to design a custom ring of his own creation. The romantic experience culminates on a couple's big day, when they exchange their handmade and personally designed rings?a perfect symbol for the love they've nurtured.
