    Valley Photo Service is such a great store. I recently went in wanting to print some digital images and was really happy with the service I received. They have an awesome Kodak machine that can print images directly from your phone and facebook. There were a couple shots I'd taken on Instagram that I wasn't sure would come out well but the owner totally helped me with getting the colors and exposure right, which made for nice prints. I also left some film for development and it came back right on time and looked great. Every employee I've dealt with has been really friendly and helpful, both on the phone and in person. I'm glad stores like this still exist!

    Plain and simple, this studio changed my life. I have always loved yoga but could never find classes that were challenging enough. I did bikram for over a year, settling for migraines after every class and rude instructors, just because I wanted to at least sweat in a class! If I'm going to yoga, I want a physical and mental work out, not a yawnfest. Enter Mark Blanchard's Power Yoga. Never have I experienced such a sense of love and community in a studio. Mark and Elizabeth employ skilled, caring instructors who will push you to your limit but stop to help you along the way (my faves are Grace, Noelle and Beau). When I first came to the classes I thought I'd never be able to get into the headstands, arm balances, etc. but less than a year later I'm doing them and it's truly because this studio and its instructors have opened me up in ways I never dreamed possible. For those who are newer to yoga, I definitely advise going to a beginner's class first because from there on out there are no class ""levels."" That being said, the instructors always provide variations on poses so that you can decide how far to push yourself.
