At over 100 locations throughout the country, CorePower Yoga (CPY) invites students to creative classes that meld movement, breath, heat, and music into entrancing routines to energize the body and mind. Signature CPY classes are taught by approachable certified yoga instructors who lead students through dynamic, Vinyasa-style flows with demonstration and verbal cues, helping pupils of all experience levels tone core muscles and cultivate balance. CPY also offers teacher training and lifestyle programs to empower students to become yoga instructors or to just advance their individual practice. During construction of all its new studios, CPY strives to use recycled content, install eco-friendly and efficient mechanical systems, and ensure that any waste created doesn't end up in landfills or just piled in Mr. Henderson's garage.
Refreshment is the ultimate goal at YogaFresh, a community-focused, earth-toned studio, which won Woodbury magazine’s Best Yoga Class award in 2011.
This serene backdrop gives way to the intense, heated poses and breathing exercises of the studio’s dance-like Vinyasa classes, which build the delicate balance of strength and grace required to bench-press a killer whale. Several other classes such as Yin Yoga, Warrior Sculpt, and more, unfold in a studio heated to a sweat-inducing 99 degrees—all the better for loosening tight muscles and quarters lodged behind the ears. Ballet and Pilates inform Barre Burn sessions, which combine yoga poses, isometric exercises, and weightlifting to sculpt the limbs and core.
Yoga Alliance–certified instructors lead each class, emphasizing form and safety as students stretch and align their bodies. After class, peruse the studio’s boutique, which teems with workout-friendly apparel and eco-friendly yoga mats from brands such as Alo, Manduka, Beyond Yoga, Karma Wear, Vimmia, Rese, Manduka, Yogitoes, and YogaFresh Brand.
There’s strength in numbers at Energy Pilates & Fitness: In addition to owner Debra Tourek, there’s 16 experienced and specialized fitness instructors, a childcare manager, and a medical director. They combine their powers to empower students to work their hardest. The team also emphasizes a fun, loose atmosphere, and each class can be easily customized to accommodate a range of workout needs and the current level of gravity. They lead dozens of classes that encompass different styles of Pilates, yoga, cardio workouts, Barrebody classes, and high-intensity interval training. Each instructor prepares his or her own unique workout routines; however, all routines focus on flexibility work, core work, and full-body conditioning. The studio also offers childcare for children 6 weeks old–11 years old during classes for an additional fee.

Doctor Jim Kreibich's chiropractic adjustments realign the vertebrae so the nervous system can send the right signals to nerves throughout the rest of the body. In addition to operating the spinal switchboard, the doctor also spots sources of pain through examination and presents a report of findings. He removes such discomfort with massage therapy or ultrasound therapy that vibrates and massages the tissue with small sound waves.
While many people associate chiropractic care with issues of the back, treatments also sustain health and promote self-healing in the entire body. These treatments improve structural misalignments, alleviating associated health issues as allergies, insomnia, and headaches along the way.
