The desire to create connections informs nearly every detail of Yoga Inside Out. The sunlit studio, free of mirrors or other distractions, allows students the space to connect with themselves during their practice.

During open studio time three mornings a week, instructors work to connect with their students as they work side-by-side to refine their practice.
Doctors Dalvir Pannu, who co-authored a book on dental implants, adds to the wealth of knowledge that Pannu Dental's team of doctors taps into as they restore pristine smiles. In addition to penning a book, Dr. Pannu has also appeared on NBC Bay Area's Living Well segment to talk about implants. After x-rays map out mouthscapes, doctors discuss the treatment and desired results with patients, enabling them to crabwalk into the procedure worry-free. Dental implants fill in for missing teeth with titanium-anchored implants that leave nearby teeth intact, unlike previous methods of tooth replacement, such as bridges or hot gluing a marshmallow to gum-lines. After it is implanted, the anchor may take up to six months to fully heal. When the healing process is complete, the doctor installs a custom crown and abutment perfectly matched to surrounding teeth. Although the timeframe between implant surgery and crown completion may vary, the final, natural-looking results will help increase confidence during photo ops and rock-candy festivals.
