Huntington Yoga & Wellness Studio offers a diverse mix of classes so that the studio can maintain an open-door policy welcoming students of all levels in its classes. There is a beginners class, of course, but new students can also try their hand at Vinyasa, an energetic sequence of sun salutations and backbends, or Kundalini, a more relaxing blend of breathing exercises and meditation. Yoga is just a part of Huntington’s approach, though. Owner Janice Grote has spent more than 30 years supplementing her yogic journey with other holistic practices, and so the also offers reiki, massage, and plant-based nutritional counseling.
I-ACT certified hyrdotherapist Zora Nemati leads a team of body harmonizers versed in the arts of quantum biofeedback, massage therapy, colon hydrotherapy, and integrated-energy therapy.

OTOhealth Hearing Care protects and preserves auditory abilities by equipping patients with appropriate hearing technology and services.

Certified trainers Ahmed and Kathy Tafti lead Fit Body Boot Camp workouts that are more about slimming down than bulking up. The certified personal trainers motivate clients with supportive words, rather than by barking military-style orders or threatening to replace water bottles with steaming teapots.

More than a fire-fighter transporter or an object for constructing oil derricks, the pole has become a fun-filled tool for toning muscles and increasing confidence.

Classes include Intro to Pole, Pole Burn (aerobic movements), and Advanced Spin/Climb/Flirt (learn a pole spin, pole climb, pole descends, slinky floor work, and more).
