At Harrow Yoga, husband and wife team Jamie and Chuck Harrow lead a staff of compassionate teachers who strive to make yoga beneficial and fun for all who walk through the studio's doors. Classes range from beginner-friendly basic yoga, which focuses on proper alignment and breathing, to more advanced styles like power vinyasa, a fast-paced practice that aims to increase strength and cardiovascular health. In addition to yoga, the Harrow schedule also incorporates Pilates classes, as well as sports fitness yoga for athletes who like to celebrate a touchdown by doing a sun salutation in the end zone.
At The Ultimate Painter Art Gallery, kids and adults take to the canvas fueled by inspiration and expert guidance. The studio provides all the essentials—a canvas, brush, and selection of paints—leaving everything accounted for except your imagination, which can manifest its wildest visions onto a canvas to take home and hang over the pet door just to mess with your dog. On top of that, the staff offers painting services that can turn any home into a beautiful work of art: wainscoting, marble finishing, metallics, and bright sea-sponge texture work, to name a few.
At Optimal You, personal trainer and certified Biosignature Modulation practitioner Branden Martin works closely with clients to help them burn off unwanted pounds.

During the day or night, on a holiday or a plain old Tuesday, Anytime Fitness is always open. Once they register, members get a key to the gym’s secured entryway, which means they have 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year access to any of the club’s nearly 1,800 locations all over the globe. Personal trainers staff each location, where they lead customized one-on-one training sessions or provide quick and simple tips for using the gym’s high-quality cardio and strength-training equipment. The roster of group classes includes kickboxing and boot camp to whip bodies into shape in a fun and supportive environment. After a sweat session, members can head to the locker room for a shower or catch up on their stories on one of the treadmills equipped with a personal TV. Exercisers can also accentuate their hard-earned musculature with a tanning session or two, since access to beds is either added onto their membership for an additional fee or billed on a pay-per-use basis.
Tracey Trambauer treasures the mind and body equally—she's spent more than 20 years studying spiritual approaches to living, as well as exercise, nutrition, and natural modes of healing. She combines this study of the mind and body at Still Lake Yoga, where she's the owner and master yoga instructor.
Her practice is rooted in the tradition of sivananda; this style of yoga focuses on 12 core poses and breathing exercises, and every session ends with a Sanskrit chant. But the studio explores all manner of yoga techniques and trends, including the trend of writing your crush's name all over your yoga mat. In addition to sivananda, classes include three other fluid styles of yoga and meditation that work to build flexibility and strengthen core muscles while inducing calm. To ensure clients of all physical abilities feel welcome, the instructors at Still Lake Yoga will adjust the pace of their classes, and they work to foster a relaxing, noncompetitive atmosphere.
Wesley Stout’s childhood in the mountains of Virginia sparked a lifelong love of nature. A muralist with a knack for forested vistas and underwater vignettes, Stout’s works have been seen in businesses and schools across the Caribbean. His online gallery is filled with realistic depictions of stunning Floridian sights, interspersed with a few fanciful scenes such as this fiddling bear and this noble Camelot-bound eagle. He translates all of this experience into teachable moments during his art classes, showing students how to give their imaginations form through styles such as cartooning, portraiture, and landscape painting.
