Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.

Jen and Jay, the brother and sister duo behind JFit 360, have different backgrounds but one unified goal—to help their clients incorporate fitness into their circle of well-being and health. Jay, a US marine sniper and MMA fighter, and Jen, a marathon runner and certified personal trainer, both lead classes that include personal training with specialties in boxing, MMA, kettlebell training, yoga, and running. They also conduct group personal-training sessions that offer the same one-on-one benefits of personal training but in a fun, supportive group atmosphere.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been practicing yoga in Boston for over 3 years. I have always wished for a studio with better ambiance. The moment I saw iYoga I was blown away by the beauty, it looked so serene and peaceful. Right away I knew I was going to take that space and make it into the yoga studio of my dreams

All One Yoga is all about community. Taught by a set of seasoned yogis, the diverse set of classes at the studio offer a taste of the many types of yoga available. Though different, all of them have in common a close-knit, one-on-one feel thanks to the studio's small size and limit of 25 people per class limit.
All One Yoga welcomes students of all skill levels into their family with open arms. They recommend that beginners purchase a yoga mat, inform teachers of any injuries or medical conditions, and leave cell phones in the lobby to avoid disturbing the peace or scrambling the communications of android instructors. Most sessions take place in a heated studio environment, which can help to detoxify the body and increase workout intensity.
