  • Richmond Balance
    At Richmond Balance, trainers forge bodies to match the beauty of life-changing events. Their new mommy boot-camp classes help ladies achieve post-pregnancy goals, such as a slimmer stomach or arms that can change stroller tires without a jack. Support remains the common element of these specialized programs?the staff gathers students with similar objectives and capitalizes on a sense of camaraderie. The same method guides the Balanced Buddies system, in which partners share the same personal trainer. Even outside the communal atmosphere of classes, Richmond Balance prioritizes an intimate, custom approach to health. Its certified trainers will travel to homes for private sessions or supervise clients as they sweat aboard the gym's Precor, Tuff Stuff, and Schwinn equipment. During workouts, guests can occupy their eyes by watching the individual flat-screen televisions on select machines or by counting the exposed bricks on the walls around them.

  • Andres Soulas Photography
    Photographer Andres Soulas's 30-year journey through the world of photography began in his native Argentina when he enrolled at the National Art Museum in Buenos Aires. From there, he traveled to San Francisco to study at the Academy of Art College before moving across the US to teach at the Richmond Visual Arts Center. Reflecting his travels, his portfolio features photos of cityscapes, landscapes, performances, fine art, and portraits of people outdoors rather than in front of studio backdrops. Because of his passion for on-location photography, his photography classes are ideal for beginner photographers who want to learn to take pictures while traveling and get statues in the park to smile.

  • Mise En Place
    At Mise En Place Cooking School, a staff of culinary artists and sommeliers teach visitors how to navigate the kitchen during an array of cooking classes. Aspiring foodsmiths follow their instructor?s lead as they get their hands messy slicing, dicing, and mixing fresh ingredients to build tasty meals in a variety of disciplines. The culinary wizards demonstrate easy, straight-forward approaches to fixing dishes and robust sauces, teaching students that knives are best used for chopping, instead of throwing at people strapped to spinning wheels. The crew also hosts parties for both adults and kids, during which participants craft meals to share in the school's bright, airy studio, or at an off-site location, such as the celebrant?s home.
