After 16 years spent with Kona Coffee, MJA Owner Marin Artukovich took up residence in Napa Valley, where he renovated an idyllic estate on the side of Howell Mountain before opening the MJA Tasting Room in March of 2010. With the help of local winemaker Mikael Wargin, Marin’s vineyard produces cabernets, sauvignon blancs, and pinot noirs reflecting the terroir of Napa Valley and the Santa Cruz mountains, with bottles for sale through its very own Serene and DaVine cellars. Cups of house-roasted Hawaiian Kona Coffee cap off each tasting, warming hands and souls inside MJA’s gorgeous brick-walled estate or on a heated patio overlooking the Santa Cruz mountains.

Founded by Jan Hutchins and guided by his 38 years of yoga experience, Yoga Center of Los Gatos relaxes away stress and anxiety with its holistic wellness practices. Hosting classes from early morning to late at night, Yoga Center's schedule proves nearly as flexible as its experienced and welcoming yogis. Beginners can start with the Basic & Beyond class, which moves at a slow pace to enable careful pose perfection, and established spiritual sportspeople can opt for power Vinyasa sessions, which combine intense strength, stamina, and moderate levitation with focus and centering practice for the mind. For a less exercise-centered practice, transformational yoga and restorative yoga employ meditative scrub brushes to scour away the day's tensions. To ensure healthy yogic practices, instructors must first approve students before they can register for advanced classes or shuffle a pack of cards with their feet.
