The mood at Atmasphere—the new high-tech, 10,000-square-foot Buckhead yoga studio—can feel otherworldly. Ambient light slowly melts from color to color, fragrant aromas waft through the rooms, electronic music pulses, and the bottom floor greets you with an entire wall of falling water. This ain’t your usual gym.

The swank space, now the largest yoga studio in the Southeast, is the brainchild of Pavel Stuchlik, who opened five local outposts of Orangetheory Fitness. While it sometimes feels a little over the top (the client intake form asks, “What is your dream state of being?”), we were impressed with the range of classes, not to mention the double-headed showers. Along with yoga, meditation, and cycling, Atmasphere offers workshops and fusion classes like WarriorS—a mix of yoga, cardio, and weight training. The space includes two heated yoga rooms, a private practice room, a cycling room, and a meditation hall, each with mood lighting that changes based on the class. Plus, it’s the first studio in town to offer Sound Off LED headphones— originally developed for silent discos—to drown out distractions. Drop-in class, $25; packages from $159 per month.  —Caroline Cox
