Cedar Haven Wellness + Arts' attentive yoga instructors tap their wealth of knowledge and years of experience to help students of all abilities to build and expand their yoga practice. The studio’s schedule of yoga classes delivers accessible, thoughtful sessions Monday–Friday in a practice space with gleaming hardwood floors, exposed brick, and warm wooden accents. The rustic setting lends a deeply peaceful atmosphere, helping students to settle fidgety spirit animals during one-hour classes. Sessions include soothing slow flows, when students focus on deep-breathing techniques while a series of gentle postures restores motion to rusty joints. Dynamic yoga and martial-arts-movement sessions combine stretching and core work with fluid martial-arts moves to hone strength, balance, and the ability to wax a car to Mr. Miyagi's high standards. Though not included with this Groupon, Cedar Haven also offers workshops and classes in massage therapy, music, and art.
24/7 Fitness Friends and Fun is a gym on a mission.

Here, members will find cardio and strength-training machines, 37 group fitness classes per week, free weights, personal training, and nutritional counseling, as well as free childcare in the afternoons and early evenings.

The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education. This approach doesn't just assuage painful symptoms—it's also designed to uncover the root causes of ailments such as whiplash, insomnia, headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and more.
In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
Terri Stein founded her business after attempting to get in shape after the birth of her child. Frustrated by the impersonal daily grind of working out in a home gym, and the expenses of a personal trainer, Stein founded Edge Body Boot Camp with a focus on creating a positive environment that motivates its clients to break through their personal goals. Trainers help campers establish a healthy life-long routine of exercise, not just a short burst of activity, with pupils supporting each other through cardio, core, and flexibility exercises, as well as nutritional guidance.
