Part yoga studio, part wellness center, The Funky Om hosts a variety of yoga classes throughout the week while also offering acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal remedies.

Within Sole Pilates & Yoga’s beet-red walls, instructors lead small groups of students through rigorous postures on Pilates reformer machines. With just five machines in their studio, the instructors can ensure that each student benefits from personal adjustments and individual attention. The machines' pulleys, bars, and sliding carriages add extra resistance to traditional Pilates postures, testing students' strength against their own body weight to develop lean, toned muscles. In addition to the Pilates reformer, the instructors lead mat Pilates classes to carve strong core muscles, and yoga sessions that flow through strength- and relaxation-inducing poses, resulting in enough flexibility and body control to squeeze into a milk carton.
