By far Tacoma's trendiest hot yoga spot, Expand Yoga is located in the heart of Downtown Tacoma, not far from the School of the Arts (SOTA) and convenient from the Link.
Frequented by the local UW and UPS college crowd, this studio offers both hot yoga and hot vinyasa. Kudos to its unique industrial design, using simple recycled local materials. The yoga studio floor is an up-cycled high school gym floor!

Alexandar School for Natural Therapeutics
4026 Pacific Ave; Tacoma 98418
"Healing the world one massage practitioner at a time!" This school has been dedicated to healing for over 30 years. The owners literally started out in their living room and have created a wonderful local, community oriented school and clinic. It's about as far from a corporate mentality as possible. They run a modest clinic, with extremely reasonable rates, and discounted student massage and spa treatments!
The atmosphere is cozy and personable, and the treatments are among the best you can find, because the people here truly believe that a person’s life, and in turn the world, can be a better place with a little education and caring touch. Sadly, all the other independent massage schools in the area have been bought out by corporate entities or couldn't compete with them.
This is a veritable gem in the community, so if you are considering becoming a massage practitioner, or just want an excellent massage, support a local business that cares about quality healthcare, the integrity of the bodywork industry, and most importantly our local community.
