In his 15-year stint as a fire-safety instructor and city painter, Steven Soto learned that it’s not always enough to paint walls—you may also need to repair them. To do so, he and his fully insured contractors smooth walls with a fast-drying plaster compound. The skim coating is more durable than traditional drywall, and can seamlessly fill in dents incurred during daily wear or home discus competitions. Beyond painting standard walls, Steven’s techs can also add color to nontraditional surfaces such as sheetrock, metal, and wood.

Today, the couple presides over two hot yoga studios and oversees a staff of 25 teachers. They sill teach in their original, intimate Park Slope space. They also run a second set of classes in their South Slope studio, located in a former bank lobby that boasts architectural flourishes all the way up to its vaulted ceilings and ATM-shaped lockers.
From the comfort of his contemporary and calming clinic, Doctor of Chiropractic Gardiner's certified hands gently assess, correct, and Olympically score bodily alignment, straightening out malfunctioning mechanics from knee bone to neck bone. The 45–60 minute treatment melds data about each patient's health history with an in-office bodily analysis, triangulating torqued tension with help from the Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) method. Using highly specific orthopedic, structural, neurological, and typographical indicators, the SOT method is able to identify health-inhibiting patterns throughout the entire meat suit, leading Dr. Gardiner to make gentle yet intrinsic adjustments to restore balance to the spine, head, dorsal fin, pelvis, or other necessary areas.
