Greenleaf Yoga Studio exemplifies the many varied ways students can practice yoga. While newer students or those with limited mobility build strength with the help of bolsters and blocks during restorative classes, more advanced practitioners can practice arm balances and inversions during Level 2 classes. Additionally, students can focus on synchronizing their breath with postures during Ashtanga yoga, or crunch cores during sessions that focus on postures specially designed to tone the midsection.

Dr. Hossein Jahangiri has gained a deep knowledge of cosmetic dentistry, implants, and intravenous conscious sedation through hundreds of hours of continuing education, in addition to his dental training at USC. But Dr. Jahangiri's background isn't the only draw to Southern California Family Dentistry, his Whittier dental office. With his crack team of dentists—Dr. Le and Dr. Hakham—Dr. Jahangiri beautifies smiles with advanced cosmetic and preventative dentistry services, ranging from teeth cleaning and fluoride treatments to gum grafting, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns fit for King Toothy. But before any treatment is performed, the dentists examine each smile, looking for cavities and gum diseases, and thoroughly explains to clients each potential service option.
