Diane Tellier will walk all over you. Gripping overhead bars for balance, she performs ashiatsu massage, kneading her clients' backs with her bare feet for extra firm pressure. This helps keep bodies limber and pain-free, as does a host of yoga classes inside The Place's quaint, airy studio. The sessions cater to all skill levels, whether you're just beginning, dropping in for a yoga dance session, or trying out for the Downward Facing Dog in the local production of 101 Dalmatians. In addition to yoga and ashiatsu massge, The Place also offers modalities such as craniosacral therapy and Reiki.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.

The pressure was starting to get to Karoun Charkoudian, much like a teakettle when an entire family stares at it impatiently. She had completed grad school and was looking for a corporate gig, and this new phase in life was causing her a lot of confusion. But all of that went away when a friend brought her to a Bikram yoga class in 2003. There, she discovered newfound peace and clarity. In the years that followed, Karoun completed teacher training for several types of yoga, including Vinyasa flow and Iyengar, and became heavily influenced by the meditative movements of Chinese qi gong.

Now she shares her expertise within the bright green walls at Karoun Yoga. The intimate, modern studio is also home to other experienced instructors who approach yoga from the realms of fitness, rehabilitation, dance, and spirituality.
