  • Yoga Flow Pittsburgh
    Dominique Ponko sits at the head of the class, leading yogis through muscle-lengthening postures with the steady flow of her deep, rhythmic inhales and exhales. It’s been a long journey for Dominique. She first sought out yoga at the age of 26 to help her cope with life-threatening seizures and a slow-growing brain tumor. Yoga comforted her through three difficult years, welcoming her into a space for healing spiritually before she was able to find the proper medicine to help her heal physically. Though still a little shaky, Dominique has triumphed and opened four yoga studios—voted Best of the ‘Burgh in 2010—to inspire her students to ease their ailments, build strength, and find inner peace. During her studio's heated Vinyasa-flow classes, an enthusiastic and supportive instructor guides students through a series of strengthening postures that work to increase flexibility and build muscles. Warm, balmy air courses through the studio, pricking beads of sweat on brows to help detox bodies and loosen stiff muscles into deep, soothing stretches.

  • Top Notch Art Centre
    Painters, graphic artists, and architects have found the tools of their trade at the one-stop Top Notch Art Centre since 1971. A floor-to-ceiling picture window beckons passersby on Craig Street, where shade trees shelter a block of historic buildings and small businesses, including a rare bookshop and a cobbler for broken dreams. Inside, the staff leads 2-D artists toward the right brush for watercolor or oil from their selection of Winsor Newtons, or printmaking papers from Arches Cover and BFK Rives lines. The store also makes an effort to seek out artisanal brands, such as Gamblin Artists Oils and Mt. Vision Handmade Pastels. Bookbinders can pick up screw posts and glue, and drafters can run their fingers over delicate, smooth vellum and curl them around the curves and angles of nine types of stylus guides. Past the tall, narrow aisles, a framing shop encases completed works of art in glass and caution tape to prepare them for display.

  • Keyboard Town PALS
    Designed to teach kids typing fundamentals within 60 minutes, Keyboard Town PALS helps develop the essential skills for succeeding in school and communicating effectively in the digital world. Rather than run through endless drills, the Purposeful, Associative Learning System (PALS) focuses on mnemonic memory devices and ignores students' mistakes, allowing them to learn key placement without getting discouraged. During each exercise, on-screen puppets act out interesting stories while pupils type in tandem, and after one hour, most are often able to recall the 30 letters and symbols on a standard keyboard without looking at the QWERTY tattoos on their fingers. Best suited for ages 6–12—including those with learning disabilities—programs are available in Spanish, English, and French.
