Poise Studio is home to two studios that offer a wide variety of class styles for different fitness levels and preferences.

Fusionists will gobble up yoga with Dr. Linda Rowe, who incorporates her chiropractic knowledge and kung-fu daydreams. Pilates classes are designed to strengthen the core muscles in order to maximize strength, flexibility, and control over spiderwebbed stairways in emergency evacuations.

The chiropractic team at The Joint...the chiropractic place, operated by Murray Hill Chiropractic, PC, has streamlined the chiropractic process. Virtually every aspect of the visitation is designed around patient convenience. Instead of scheduling appointments, patients simply walk in and fill out paperwork. A doctor is onsite to minimize wait time. During exams, patients stay comfortable in their street clothes or favorite footed pajamas while the doctors examine their spine, searching for subluxations and bulges. They devise a treatment plan that can include chiropractic adjustments, which typically only take about 10 minutes.

As part of its mission to trumpet the joys of natural living and community-fueled sustainability, Common Circle Education conducts a Sustainability in Motion tour, teaming bicyclists up with a like-minded biker gang of 20–40 riders for a scenic week of riding, eating, camping, and learning. Each tour begins with a guide leading the group through bike safety and mechanical fundamentals before escorting them out onto scenic, low-traffic farm roads. Pedal pushers spend the week eating healthy, organic vegan fare, visiting organic farms, and biking anywhere from two to six hours (20–60 miles) every other day. During nonbiking days, the group absorbs the productive philosophies of permaculture, sustainability, and regenerative design via hands-on activities—providing a productive respite from mind-numbing TV shows such as News, Sport, and Louder News.
After the birth of her first child in 2001, Baby Boot Camp’s founder and certified trainer and spin and Pilates instructor Kristen Horler wanted a postnatal fitness program that didn't require her to leave her baby at the door. Her solution was to start a suit of programs just for new and expecting parents where mothers could bond with their infants while soaking up the support and camaraderie of their peers. During Strollfit sessions, certified trainers and Radio Flyers equipped with outboard motors lead ladies through innovative routines that incorporate baby-filled strollers into yoga, cardio, and strength training. For long-term fitness, coaches encourage aspiring runners to break through the tape during the 5K training program, and Kristen's own Nutrition Solutions teaches the benefits of healthy-eating habits during a four-week program designed by registered dieticians.
