Inside Yoga By Degrees' spacious, spa-like studios, a team of certified yoga instructors helps students of all abilities refine strength, flexibility, and endurance during one-hour classes. The seven-day-a-week schedules features an assortment of yoga styles, including beginner-friendly fundamental classes, aerobic Vinyasa flows, Restorative, and Yoga Sculpt sessions that incorporate hand weights to chisel muscles into marble-statue perfection. Each session is heated to temperatures between 80 and 105 degrees to help rid bodies of toxins and melt muscles with deep, restorative stretches. During workouts, the dedicated teachers play a collection of both mellow and mood-boosting music to motivate minds, and after class students can change back into superhero spandex inside the facility's immaculate locker rooms.

Certified ophthalmologist Dr. Mark J. Benjamin uses Toyos Optimum intense-pulsed-light therapy to help alleviate swelling, redness, and pain caused by dry eyes. After determining whether a client is eligible for treatment, the doctor applies a cool gel onto faces to create a smooth, speed-bump-free path for a flash lamp. Concentrated energy emanating from the lamp travels into lower eyelids to seek out clogged Meibomian glands, the organs responsible for producing oils that prevent tears from evaporating. Like a talented diplomat, the light helps negotiate a treaty with inflamed blood vessels inside the glands, allowing the jammed oils to liquefy and return to their duty hydrating ocular residences. Sessions are spaced one month apart, giving eyes time to heal and practice new blinking rhythms.
When several MRIs and doctor's appointments led to Katie Summers's diagnosis of osteochondritis in her right ankle, she was understandably concerned—running was her life.

Now in the comfort of Pathways Center for Health & Wellness, Katie can ease deeply rooted pain with a personalized acupuncture session.
