Though Deb Sommerhalder built her career around exercise, it wasn't until taking a yoga class with her daughter that she truly felt healthy. This experience led her to found Inner Sun Yoga Studio, LLC, a sanctuary dedicated to physical fitness and spiritual wellness. Using focused movements, relaxation techniques, and meditation, seasoned teachers guide yogis of all levels toward inner peace and emotional fortitude.

Hatha classes help students to hone basic poses such as arm balances and seated twists, and Vinyasa Flow sessions link these poses with deep breaths rather than chains of wilting daisies. To loosen tight muscles, the practice space warms to 78–82 degrees for group yoga classes and for private Thai yoga sessions, during which a skilled practitioner bends the client's body into salutary stretches and poses. After class, complimentary tea melts lingering stress and inspires students to commune with one another.
