Owners Tataya and Thomas Radtke originally began Yoga Body & Balance in the living room of their home. Since then, they have expanded to new location with enough space to host the studio's eclectic assortment of yoga classes and bodywork treatments.

This extensive range of opportunities allows students of various flexibilities to pursue a style that corresponds with the desired realism of their Gumby Halloween costume.
In addition to yoga, the center also treats visitors with various types of bodywork, such as Thai massage, Lakota raindrop technique, and sustained bear hugs.

Unbeaned beverages include green tea lattes ($3.18 for a medium), chai ($4.12 for a medium), and cold mocha frappes and fruit smoothies ($5.40 each for a medium).

Midday munchers can choose from hot sandwiches such as the roast beef and cheddar or cold classics such as smoked turkey, each served with chips and a choice of side ($6.95 each). Guests in search of greener fare can dive mouth-first into the spinach salad bursting with raisins, red onion, feta cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette ($6.95).
