In 1997, Nancy Glenmore Tatum and Kevin Casey founded Glenmore Yoga & Wellness Center in their house's sunroom. Their operation's therapeutic blend of yoga, massage, and consultation services attracted a wide enough student base to necessitate three expansions, and Nancy and Kevin eventually settled in the Glen Eagles Shopping Center. They still uphold a central belief that "yoga is for everyone," and have upheld that philosophy by building a time machine to let the late Ben Franklin participate. Nancy and Kevin have also cultivated a nurturing community with resources such as workshops and teacher training that promote its growth.

The center's impressive roster of yoga classes covers the flowing Vinyasa poses as well as specialty courses for prenatal mothers, older adults, and kids. Every class pays attention to the individual needs of its students, just as the massage services modify their kneads to better treat specific tensions. A calming interior contributes to Glenmore's warm ambiance: two carpeted studios, a massage room, and a lounge accommodate its guests. Students can also borrow the yoga books and videos of the lending library, so long as they turn in their senses of balance as collateral.

At Mise En Place, 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.

The NASCAR Racing Experience's team of driving instructors specializes in NASCAR-themed Cinderella stories: at whichever world-famous speedway they're visiting, they give civilians the chance to drive real NASCAR race cars that have actually been raced by NASCAR superstars for a few hours. That means getting behind the wheel of a real NASCAR race car that's been driven by Dale Jr, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and other NASCAR favorites and putting the pedal to the medal. Unlike other racing experiences, there?s no lead car to follow here, you're driving by yourself and yes, passing is allowed! The instructors still offer guidance though, coaching those driving solo over a two-way car radio, and speed-chauffeuring racing enthusiasts around the track on ride-alongs.

It's been more than half a century since the Visual Arts Center of Richmond was founded to engage the community through art, proving Virginia's creative community is as fruitful as it is inventive. In rotating exhibits that spotlight local and nationally recognized artists, the museum makes contemporary art accessible, relatable, and rarely covered in bees. But it's not all about established artists. VisArts makes classes for the community a priority as well, and programs include an introduction to blacksmithing for adults, fabric design, letterpress printing, and weekly art classes for both adults and kids that focus on cartooning, clay, photography, and simple jewelry.

Owen Lane and Tiffany Gellner have experienced nearly every side of the Richmond restaurant scene. Both began in entry-level positions?Owen as a dishwasher, Tiffany as a hostess?and worked their way up from there. After years of experience, this husband-and-wife team has joined forces to helm The Magpie RVA, an American gastropub nestled in the historic Carver neighborhood. Like its food, the space is a hodgepodge of eclectic elements: a sign affixed to an antique typewriter welcomes guests, and lighting fixtures made from salvaged machinery hang above dark wood tables and a plush crimson-cushioned bench.

As The Magpie's chef, Owen is never content to sit still. He changes the menu frequently, gracing white plates and wood trays with unique combinations of local and exotic ingredients. He has crafted shareable plates such as smoked rabbit croquettes, housemade sausage, and charred Japanese eggplant. As for main dishes, he might prepare grilled quail, roasted duck, or oyster-mushroom risotto. Chef Owen also showcases his passion for beer and bourbon at an L-shaped, polished-wood bar supported with elegant metal braces. Here, bartenders pour sudsy brews into goblets and garnish cocktails with fruit. Owen occasionally leaves the comfort of his kitchen to perform private chef services at customers' homes.

Carefree Boat Club was founded on the principle that adventuring on a boat is always more fun without the chores associated with ownership. Over time, the owners gathered a huge fleet of speedboats, pontoons, and sailboats, launching them into prime boating waters from 27 harbors around the nation. They also assembled a team of maintenance experts to care for the vehicles, removing cleanup and repair responsibilities from club members' agendas. Then, they set their membership rules, keeping a strict ratio of ten members to every one vehicle in their fleet to ensure easy boating access.

Today, the company maintains a fledgling branch of their operation out of the Marina at Rocketts Landing near downtown Richmond. Their growing fleet of ships navigate down the historic James River. In addition to providing unlimited vessel access for members and rentals for non-members, they also arrange a variety of club events at each location. Members go on annual picnics, gather together on holidays, and host seminars for boating-related subjects such as safety, navigation, and how to trick everybody into calling you admiral.
