Rise Yoga's soothing studio begins releasing students' tension with calming, contemporary trappings before they ever set foot in the stress-relieving, mixed-level yoga classes led by experienced and attentive teachers.

Vinyasa classes increase heart rates with dynamic flowing movements, sun salutations, and traditional yogic spelling bees in which students bend their bodies into common yoga vocabulary.

To create Stoney's Rockin' Rodeo in 2007, the owner combined his two passions in life: cooking and country dancing. As a 30-year veteran of the restaurant industry, he has been adamant about offering hearty eats at affordable prices, which is why Stoney's menu is a line-up of comfort cuisine including barbeque meats, half-pound Angus burgers, and steaks grilled to order. At the restaurant’s front bar saloon, drinks are poured while guests belt out their favorite tunes during nightly karaoke or as they perch on a high-top chair to watch a sports game on one of five flat-screen TVs.
At the back of the house, novice line dancers and seasoned do-se-do-ers participate in free country-dance lessons in a spacious dancehall.

Weekly concerts showcase such artists as Chris Young and Phil Vassar, who deliver the real-deal country music that gets everyone kicking up their heels and high-fiving with their imaginary spittoons.
