In their own words, “the studio is your playground. Our lobby and two studio spaces are filled with colorful murals, disco balls and a magical hint of glitter.” It’s not just about the yoga at Urban Om; it’s about encouraging connections and community in a creative, playful, inclusive space. The new lobby and Mudra studio (mudras are symbolic gestures that get your energy flow going) were recently unveiled.

Bee’s Cuisine got its start at the Fondy’s Farmers Market in 2006 and slowly added to their Southeast Asian egg rolls and fried rice offerings. Now in a brick-and-mortar space that has seen many a Japanese restaurant in this Farwell strip mall come and go, Bee’s offers their popular stuffed chicken wings (with noodles, carrots, cabbage and onion) and a sensible selection (not the 500-item menu typical of many restaurants) of noodle, rice, curry and stir-fry options.
