"The yoga community is so different than a typical gym. It?s warm, friendly and inviting." This is just one of the many accolades shared by Akasha Yoga's happy members who revel in the sense of community the studio fosters. One of the reasons for the close-knit feel?heated classes where students commiserate as they challenge themselves and others to push through the high temperatures. Though possibly overwhelming at first, the raised Fahrenheit helps students sweat out harmful toxins and loosens their muscles so that they can achieve deeper stretches and poses that resemble the flexible animals they're named after. Students can also opt for non-heated classes such as Yin Yoga in which a series of floor postures are held for several minutes making it one of the more challenging classes. Another reason for the close-knit feel?teachers who have discovered the power of yoga after injuries, unwanted weight gain, or career stress and who patiently lead students toward their goals, whether the goals be weight loss, relaxation, or working as the body double for a pretzel.
Flying chromatic spheres splatter across the turf and cover of Midway Paintball's six fields situated on 22 acres of woodlands and open spaces.

The western field's buildings shelter tactical retreats, and the hyperball field's huge prone cylinders of corrugated piping allow for cat-like surprise attacks or intimidating sudden naps. Dotted with inflatable cover, the astroturf-covered NPPL?regulation field presents an ideal arena for professional-grade matches.

Vacaville Ice Sports sends skaters spinning, coasting, and pirouetting across a pair of NHL-size rinks. Each day of the week, the facility swings open its doors for open-skating sessions, and, when the ice isn't getting its hard-to-reach itches scratched by public blades, the arena buzzes with hockey leagues, birthday parties, and learn-to-skate classes. An on-site arcade and free WiFi keep mitten-free fingers busy in between ice-based orbits, and the center's snack bar ensures legs remain fully fueled for additional spins around the polar sheets.
The patty masters at Burger City send savory signals to taste receptors with a classic menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and steaks.
