The eye-catching holistic haven Sonima Wellness Center, with its cheery robin’s-egg blue tile and living wall, stops passers-by in their tracks, drawing them inside for a cold-pressed organic juice, alkalizing smoothie, or raw vegan snack. Its bright studio in the back hosts classes ranging from meditation and yoga to hip hop and boot camps with TRX and the Egoscue Patch. Wellness coaches deliver guidance in long-term healthy lifestyle choices and preventive health techniques. Founded by friends Sonia Jones and Salima Ruffin, Sonima shines as both a wellness center and passionate nonprofit foundation, which brings health and wellness education to the underserved in schools across America.
