After a fast-paced 20-year career working in public television, Fay Sutherland shifted her focus to her other passion: yoga. Drawing from 15 years of practice and multiple yoga certifications, she opened Dancing Crow Yoga with her husband, aspiring to help others to increase their fitness level while striving toward inner freedom. Fay and her fellow certified instructors teach Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Gentle, and Eclectic Hatha yoga styles. Each can be just as challenging for the body as they are nurturing to the soul. Vinyasa’s high-intensity series of continuous postures is linked by deep, mindful breaths, helping practitioners of all shapes, sizes, and Baldwin-brother preference to build strength and flexibility while achieving a state of serene relaxation. Calling themselves "The hidden sanctuary of yoga at the Derby Street Shoppes", the team at Dancing Crow Yoga strive to teach correct and safe alignment postures so that everyone may experience the benefit of each class.
Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.
ABEO MEDSPA lives up to its name by transforming bodies with advanced laser and skincare services. Seven days a week, techs erase unwanted hair with an Alma Harmony Elite laser, clear complexions with a combination of infrared, IPL, and radio-frequency technologies, and smooth away fine lines with four types of injectable solutions, including Botox. Aestheticians also handle more traditional spa treatments, from diamond-tip microdermabrasion sessions to customized chemical peels.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
CrossFit 781 looks more like a gentrified hangar than a gym—there are ropes dangling from the ceiling and heavy objects pinned to the matted 6,000-square-foot floor—but the space is ideal for CrossFit’s workout of the day. Led by co-owner Jason Brown or Danielle Bjorkman or their staff of fellow CrossFit Level 1 coaches, each workout includes a daily series of functional exercises such as pull-ups, push-ups, or flipping oversized tires that are to be completed as quickly and intensely as possible while maintaining proper form.
