Jem Yoga's seven experienced instructors strengthen mind, body, and soul via a wide-ranging array of classes, offering instruction to all skill levels. Jem Yoga specializes in Hatha yoga, a holistic practice that connects poses, postures, and meditative practices. Classes range from Level I beginner classes to open and intensive yoga classes and a yoga-Pilates hybrid, with each drop of sweat releasing stress, restoring serenity, and perfuming the air with peace. Whether dexterous as rubber bands or unbending as 1950s gender roles, muscles can achieve maximum stretch with minimum pain thanks to the availability of free yoga mats, blocks, and straps, and neither previous experience nor lotus tattoos are necessary to join in the bendy fun.

Lorry Salluzzi of Soma Healing Center has many highly developed talents—most of them in areas completely foreign to the average earthly being. As a professional medium, clairvoyant, and alternative healer, she helps her clients commune with loved ones' spirits, learn about their futures, and feel better balanced through chakra work, Reiki, tuning fork therapy, and needle-free acupuncture. Gong Wash workshops lead participants deep into the forgotten past to slough away the karma and out-of-date fashion choices that accumulate during former lives. To reinforce their own psychic abilities, guests can sign up for psychic development workshops, and Reiki practitioners of varying levels can hone their skills under Salluzzi's expert guidance.

Many of her clients visit—or call—for psychic readings. Salluzzi prides herself on her ability to see energy, which lets her glimpse auras and always know if her clients are hiding batteries in their mouths. Tarot cards facilitate each reading, but the deck is just a vehicle through which Salluzzi channels her focus. She encourages visitors to bring specific questions, and even pictures and personal items, to their readings.
