Inside a practice space heated between 80 and 90 degrees, yogis Michele and Sean guide students of all ages and experience levels through the reinvigorating poses of Vinyasa power yoga. During up to two classes per day, the instructors help pupils master the style's breathing techniques and synchronized postures, which transition seamlessly into one another, much like a month of video-game playing leads to a Cheetos addiction. The heated room coaxes muscles into sinking into deeper stretches for increased flexibility and detoxifies bodies via sweat. A stock of free rental mats cushions guests throughout the session, and a free introductory course for new students allows novices to sample the Vinyasa style every Thursday night.
Dr. Christopher Majewski, known to his patients as Dr. Juice, first got into the foot game as a professional soccer player. When a career-ending podiatric injury sent him spiraling from the roster, he couldn't turn his back on feet. He hit the books and eventually transformed himself into a highly experienced podiatrist, foot surgeon, and certified weight-loss coach. Patients shuffle into his two suburban locations, where he helps them patch up everything from injuries to ingrown toenails and sprains.
After graduating from Vanderbilt University, Dr. Erin Kinney pursued a naturopathic doctorate. In medical school, she completed hands-on internships and won multiple awards before graduating summa cum laude. Holistic and naturopathic medicine is Dr. Kinney's path, she says, because she "loves to help her patients take their health into their own hands" through education. She works with each patient to devise a set of healthy habits to enhance their lifestyle, like snacking on raw veggies or kettle bells. No two patients are the same, so Dr. Kinney tailors every treatment to the individual.
When Dr. David Pinsky opened State of the Art Dental Group in 2001, it was the culmination of a dentistry career that at that point had already comprised nearly 20 years of experience. Now, together with Rustin Levy, DMD, and Ira Reiz, DMD, Pinsky delivers general dentistry and orthodontic services ranging from root canals and extractions to the popular Invisalign teeth-straightening method. Unlike lifelong cave dwellers, the doctors are comfortable exploring the area outside of the mouth—they also provide skin-smoothing injections that reduce the appearance of wrinkles for up to one year.
