Classes at Sublime Yoga & Wellness encourage all practitioners to calm their minds while challenging their bodies. The studio's six class styles include beginner to advanced options, but each is tailored to meet the student's individual needs. Held at different times seven days a week, the classes enable students to immerse themselves in practices such as gentle vinyasa flow, warming daily flow, and vigorous ashatanga-inspired flow, which coordinates breathing with energetic postures. In its own way, each method has the potential to reduce physical pain and render practitioners more flexible, from their legs to their newly-swiveling necks. The studio also boasts an onsite spa, Infinite Skin & Body Work, where therapists perform services ranging from deep-tissue massage to customized facials.
Eve Savva, owner and instructor of Temple Goddess Dance & Yoga, began dancing at eight, exploring the worlds of ballet, modern dance, and classical Indian dance. Now, a performer of Middle Eastern dance for the past thirteen years, she welcomes students to her studio, where she is also a certified yoga instructor. There, students of all ages and abilities can find a supportive, non-competitive environment to practice in classes such as belly dance, yoga, and cardio/fitness.
Surrounded by Yoga Shakti’s cheerful orange walls, yogis lift their hands toward the ceiling, root the balls of their bare feet into the wood floor, and stretch toward the sunlight that streams in through the window. During classes, instructors lead practitioners through their customized series of postures, which draw from several yoga styles to vary the routine and address specific goals. Classes range from gentle yoga, which focuses on meditation and breathing; to more rigorous Vinyasa flow, which links challenging postures to one another through the breath; to hot yoga, whose elevated temperature challenges students, allows for deeper stretches, and detoxes the body. The instructors also offer yoga-for-back-pain classes, which aim to increase mobility in stiff backs caused by injury, stress, or walking under the limbo stick in your doorway.
Yoga prevents your mind and body from feuding, which may result in stress, general aches, and sour-jaw.

Wendy O’ Lenic, of Wendy Fit, began her professional dance career in 1979 with a Vegas dance review. Over the years, her passion for movement evolved and found a new life in yoga. Her curriculum covers various disciplines including yoga, Pilates, and meditation. Within the earth-green walls of her studio, Wendy and her staff lead students through group classes, private and semiprivate personal training sessions, and specialty courses such as ballet core and kettlebell. Once annually, the studio co-sponsors a yoga cruise so that students can practice their moves in fresh air and catch views of dolphins doing planks.
