At the age of 14, Baltimore Yoga Village founder Anjali Sunita traveled to India, where she discovered the joys of simple living mixed with the sorrows of yearning for a greater purpose. After years of expanding her education and worldview through reading and the guidance of a college mentor, Anjali found peace within the rigid discipline and spiritual focus of a South Indian ashram. Soon setting her mind to sharing the physical and mental benefits of yoga with others, she taught in private homes and underserved schools before opening her own pair of studios known collectively as Baltimore Yoga Village.

There, a team of certified yoga instructors oversees a supportive community dedicated to peace, health, and spiritual growth. Whereas many studios’ teachers spend too much time teaching students to knit their own mats, Baltimore Yoga Village’s programs focus on the ancient practice of Hatha yoga, which includes deep breathing techniques, yoga postures with attention to physical alignment, and guided relaxation. The staff also leads regular workshops in a variety of topics, from Thai-yoga bodywork to meditation through devotional songs.

Like a trip to the all-you-can-dance buffet, Jazzercise incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, and air-busting kickboxing. In 60 minutes of class, participants of all ages and levels will benefit from improving their cardio, strength, and flexibility while burning off up to 500 calories and improving their chances of impressing Kevin Bacon at a celebrity dance-a-thon. Dancing with the Stars two-time champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise’s improvisational workouts, but clients won’t need her encyclopedic knowledge of flashy footwork and spirit-fingered dance moves to get the most out of each class. Those prone to first-class jitters can review the basic moves before their shimmy session.

"Unity in motion." That's the motto of SYNCD-N owners Howard and Dawn Lindsay, and it's not lip service—it's literal. That's because the husband-and-wife duo deal exclusively in tandem bicycles. "Riding a tandem bicycle requires a team to communicate thoroughly, to trust each other...and to lean on one another when one team member gets tired," they share on their website. This shines through in both their commitment to each other—which has been strengthened since they took up the sport—and to their customers, to whom they offer trial rides. The rides familiarize the customers with the skills necessary for navigating a bicycle together, from peddling in sync to leaning in the same direction in order to dodge puddles full of tears from lonely unicyclists.

The EO in EO2 Wellness Spa & Oxygen Bar’s name stands for Energy Oasis, which hints at the spa's purpose: healing people through energy. In its clean, comforting environment, therapists work to balance minds and bodies by cleansing clients of toxins, strengthening their musculoskeletal systems, and relieving their stress during a range of treatments. Whole-body vibration and far-infrared massage beds with jade rollers use energy and motion to relax and tone muscles, whereas reflexology and shiatsu foot massage offer a more human touch. At the oxygen bar, visitors inhale concentrated, oxygen-enriched air that produces a natural high as it works to purify the lungs and bloodstream and fan the inner wood-burning furnace that keeps each of us alive.
