World Gym's well-known branch in the Sogo II building on TaichungGang Road has relocated to an even better location down the road, just behind Sogo Department Store. This high-profile site not only houses the normal World Gym facilities on its second floor, but also features the all-new upscale, attractive and fully-equipped World Yoga center on the top 14th floor. Although there are separate memberships, World Yoga members get full access to the gym with their more expensive fees. World Yoga offers over 20 types of yoga classes plus other sessions, held in five attractively-finished studios which, together with a steam room and sauna, offer panoramic views of the city. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Ann Lee
