The gurus at The Yoga Suite - Center for Yoga Studies adhere to the Iyengar method of instruction, emphasizing precise alignment while helping students bolster stamina, flexibility, and balance. The studio's flexible schedule accommodates students of all skill levels, boasting a variety of classes throughout the week. Each 90 minute yoga class fosters a sense of physical harmony, warming up muscles, loosening tight joints, and endowing minds with the clarity they need to solve crosswords in Esperanto. To ensure each pupil reaches proper alignment without incurring injury, the studio equips classes of up to 20 students with lumbar-buoying yoga props at each class, and attendees fasten themselves into wall-mounted straps to perform an array of gravity-defying poses. Assorted evening classes cater to work schedules and eschew sun salutations in favor of campfire sing-alongs.

What began in 1975 as one inner-city gym in Highland Park, Michigan, has since evolved into a global health-club organization with locations in 17 different countries.

Because this deal includes the all-access key card, you don't have to let the strictures of "time" dictate when you can avail yourself of cardio and strength benefits.

At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Hip hop, dance, soul, chill, contemporary, and classic music accompanies all classes, ranging from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to Fusion, a blend of faster- and slower-moving classes. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, “What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do—if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.”
SVS Vision Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
