"Our brain is designed to realize what we wish, without any minor errors," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee. "If you want success, it will create success. If you want happiness or health, it will create them. Anything is possible, as long as negative thoughts and emotions don't interfere."
To make this challenging, yet hopeful, philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. This focus, shared by Body & Brain Holistic Yoga and The Life Yoga, forms the basis of the studio's classes and consultations. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cooldown exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance.

For owner Joe Zuniga, mixed martial arts is a family legacy passed down from his father and cultivated over 26 years into black belts in kodokan judo, goju-ryu karate, and five-animal-style wing chun kung fu. Thick mats inside the handsome brick gym stretch across the wide wooden floors, which also bear the weight of heavy bags, speed bags, and play-doh used to build bodies at the bench press. The modern studio—sans boxing ring—enjoys ample light from picture windows to highlight maneuvers, grow ferns, and display fear-inspiring pikes in carved wood frames.
Martial-arts expert and exercise guru Prentiss Rhodes fills the minds and fists of his students with wisdom and humility through martial-arts training and kettlebell classes. After working in chiropractic rehabilitation clinics training pro athletes, Prentiss went on to master martial arts such as hapkido, haganah, and tactical knife fighting. Prentiss is fascinated by the functional movements of the body and has worked with students with many medical conditions, from MS to stroke. Prentiss incorporates all aspects of fitness into his practice, stressing not just strength but also mobility and flexibility, which come in handy during arm-wrestling tournaments to determine who will be the new county treasurer.
