Michele Mangione thought she might never dance again after a car wreck smashed her skull and fractured four fragile vertebrae. By practicing yoga, she regained her mobility and acquired a new passion: helping others find health and happiness through movement. To this end, she eagerly studied the mind-body connection, earning a PhD in the topic from Ohio State and an advanced teaching certification from the Yoga Alliance. Armed with extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and philosophy, she founded WiseWays, a studio that blends Hatha yoga with healing arts, such as tai chi, structural integration, and the Feldenkrais method of somatic education. Here, students of all skill levels build strong bodies, centered minds, and spirits as buoyant as the studio's suspended-wood floor. Yoga instruction takes place in one-on-one sessions and small-group classes, where pupils hone poses that gently unlock hips, shoulders, and safes filled with middle-school-era diary entries. As strength and flexibility increase, students progress to sun salutations that cultivate balance, focus, and a pervasive sense of calm.

Not content being the Ohio Society of Professional Journalists’ overall winner for 2011 Best Monthly in Ohio, a few of Ohio Magazine’s staff members walked away with individual awards themselves. A captivating and descriptive profile of Ohio naturalist-illustrator Julie Zickefoose, “Our Lady of the Birds” by John C. Bruening, was named Best Artist Profile, with second place bestowed upon a fellow Ohio colleague, Jennifer Rogers. For her full body of work in 2010, Linda Feagler was awarded Best Arts Reporting, and not to be left out, Lesley Blake wrangled in the Best Graphic Design/Navigation award for the magazine’s online counterpart.

But it’s not the awards that keep subscribers coming back. Within the glossy pages of each monthly issue lies a veritable treasure trove of historical tidbits, compelling stories, shopping tips, and event information—all focused around the Buckeye State. In sections such as Travel, readers delve into written and pictorial chronologies of in-state excursions, as well as extensive resources detailing where to find the best hotels, which destinations are best in which seasons, and which desserts the local police enjoy in the event you get pulled over for speeding. The Food and Wine section profiles tempting culinary destinations, and Home and Garden leads green thumbs around the state to the most verdant nurseries and the most beautiful home gardens.

In the heart of Cincinnati’s business district, work ends and play begins. Here, at The Yoga Bar, bodies and minds bask in a vibe that’s both festive and calming, like a piñata brimming with ocean waves. Helmed by Rachel Roberts—an instructor who has trained in India, Bali, and Europe—this studio explores international yoga traditions such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Yin. Teeming with bends, balances, and other physical challenges, classes fill students with energy rather than draining it away. Healthful beverages such as kombucha and coconut water flow from a mahogany bar, hydrating drinkers as they take on ancient yoga poses and modern, Pilates-inspired movements. On Friday nights, classes blossom into yoga socials where live music, tarot-card readings, and fashion trunk shows punctuate deep-breathing exercises. In addition to shepherding students toward metaphysical wellness during group and private sessions, Rachel leads yoga retreats in exotic settings such as Bali’s beaches and the moon’s bowling alleys. Between classes and retreats, Rachel makes mantra-inspired jewelry and serves as a community ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.

While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise.

Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren't needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.

Professional Latin dancer and certified Zumba instructor Tabra Tacuri embraces the link between dance and fitness: her dance career with longtime partner Anthony—an award-winning dancer certified by the National Dance Council of America and Arthur Murray—has helped her maintain an enviable shape. Together, they lead others in slimming down while strutting their stuff on the dance floor with a combination of ballroom dance and dance fitness classes at Fit 4 Life Ohio. The pair leads group and private dance lessons in ballroom, Latin dance, and Argentine tango and works with betrothed couples to perfect their first dance for their big night. Shifting the focus to fitness, Tabra once again calls upon her Latin-dance training to help dancers of all levels shimmy their way to narrower waistlines during her high-energy Zumba and Zumba toning classes.

She further motivates clients to reach their fitness goals with in-home personal training and nutrition coaching. In her e-fitness program, she leads personal training and group fitness classes via webcam and Skype, allowing clients to get in shape at home or on a crowded commuter train. The e-training sessions also include personal assessments and interviews to ensure that clients stay on track.
