Inside private rooms bathed in earthy hues and filled with simple furnishings, Body Techniques' staff treats patients with holistic services designed to soothe the body and mind. The studio's massage-therapy sessions, acupuncture treatments, and stress-management programs aim to reduce stress and bolster bodily health without relying on medications or itchy cybernetic implants. Body Techniques' owners draw on more than 30 years of industry experience as they personally interview, screen, and train each staff member.

Flying Yoga owner Laura Camp draws on her experience with contemporary dance, circus aerials, and various yoga modalities to create her studio’s curriculum, incorporating elements from a number of strength disciplines to ease students into a new practice or push seasoned exercisers to the next level. Laura cultivates a noncompetitive, judgment-free atmosphere where guests can feel comfortable trying their hands, arms, and legs at Ashtanga- and Vinyasa-style yoga poses, engaging Zumba dance steps, and muscle-sculpting body-weight exercises while hanging safely from a TRX suspension system.
Throughout each class, instructors encourage pupils to modify techniques or utilize the center's posture-aiding blocks and straps to accommodate physical limitations or injury.
