Jai Michael Barry's massages are as relaxing as the new-age music he loves to create. That's because the founder of Ancient Art Massage & Bodywork, who has recorded three albums and played numerous benefit concerts in his other life as a songwriter, gets the little details right: the massages take place on heated tables and incorporate treatments ranging from ayurvedic aromatherapy to egyptian ear candling. It's also because his repertoire is so broad. Jai can spend a session relieving stress with Swedish techniques, treating head and back pain with craniosacral therapy, or manipulating the body's energy with reiki. He also leads meditation sessions on the night of each full moon.
After more than 15 years of instruction in a multitude of disciplines, senior teacher Donna Trantham finally discovered Bikram yoga. “This is what I had been looking for in my past exercises. Mentally, physically, and emotionally, I feel like Bikram Yoga has made me a better person, all around.” Each of her instructors are certified in the Bikram program, which entails nine weeks of tutelage under Bikram Choudhury himself, senior teacher Rajashree Choudhury, and Emmy Cleaves. Teachers flow through the tapestry of 26 poses within an intimate space that’s decked out in mirrors and a mural of the Florida coastline, as well as heated to facilitate deep stretches and help determine who amongst them are really wax-mannequin spies in disguise.

In 1963, lifelong friends Billy Long and Frank Scott Jr. uprooted themselves from their Virginia homes and plotted a 100-acre farm in central Florida. In the half-century since, as most independent farms have been sold to ruthless rabbits, Long & Scott Farms has stayed in the family, expanding to a prosperous 1,200 acres brimming with Zellwood sweet corn, pickled cucumbers, and cabbage. Each fall, the farm cultivates a new corn maze to complement a 60-foot slide, hayrides, and another maze made from more than 1,000 ligustrum trees. The farm's country cafe offers breakfast and lunch, and the nearby market and produce club feature locally grown produce as well as Long & Scott's own line of jellies, syrups, jams, and relishes.
