Quiet is the first stop on the road to inner peace, according to Ramona Crabtree-Falkner, owner of Ananda Center for Yoga and Massage, LLC. At her tranquil studio, clients engage in active modes of relaxation such as yoga and passive forms such as massage therapy and reiki.

One-on-one sessions propel yogis toward specific goals such as weight loss and injury recovery, and group classes build community while releasing recently acquired stress and eye rolls stored up since high school. Bodywork services spotlight therapies from around the world, including the long, gliding strokes of Swedish massage and the stretches and acupressure of Thai foot reflexology.

The teachers at Wine and Canvas believe anyone can be artist. In fact, they draw out skills from people who have never even held a paintbrush before. To do this, they guide participants step-by-step through the process of replicating a painting during three-hour classes held at different restaurants and bars throughout the city. To keep each class fresh, they regularly change up the selected masterpieces, which can be anything from the Eiffel Tower at night to an abstract rendering of trees. No matter what and where they teach, though, they always supply students with all the necessary accoutrements, including paints, canvases, aprons, and pronunciation guides for realistic French-accents. The one thing they don't supply is wine, allowing guests to choose for themselves what to drink at the venues' full bars.
These nights on the town are for adults only, but they do host kid-friendly cookie and canvas nights for children wanting to discover or flex their artistic chops.
