A former life coach, motivational speaker, and host of You Are the Light!, a cable TV show that aired in New York and Los Angeles for 15 years, Edwin Bergman knows a little bit about bending in multiple directions. Indeed, it wasn't a lack of flexibility that led Edwin to yoga, but instead, it was yoga's capacity to heal, strengthen, and revitalize that's had him practicing since 1989.
Today, Edwin shares what he's learned over the last two decades at his very own studio in Miami Beach. When describing his classes, Edwin uses words such as "strong," "focused," and "nurturing," making sure not to leave out that he keeps things "fun," too. In 2003, he traveled to India to deepen his understanding of yoga—just another stop on the extensive journey that is his training. Now, at his studio, Edwin blends all of that training into classic teachings that emphasize balance, precise instruction, and fluid movement.
When the staff members of Mess Busters, Inc. travel to their clients' homes and offices, they can dust furniture, clean appliances, wash carpets, and even serve as a driver, grocery shopper, or personal chef. The licensed, bonded, and insured staffers work from custom checklists submitted by the client prior to a cleaning session or special event. Based on the customer's specifications, they focus on specific areas of the home, cleaning surfaces with special methods or products, applying gentle scrubbings to antiques, or using GPS to track down individual dust bunnies.
Though Eli Rouimi represents his family’s third generation in the garment-care industry, his current operation of One Stop Cleaners involves much more than traditional dry cleaning. Beyond dry or wet laundering of clothing and household items—which can be acquired through free pickup and delivery services—Eli and his team also come onsite to homes or climb aboard yachts and private jets to sanitize carpet, tile, mattresses, upholstery, and disheveled stowaways. Back at the store, the staff tinkers over shoe repairs and the preservation of both bridal gowns and bouquets, the latter of which can be freeze-dried and encased in specialty framing.
