The lights are low and the bass is thumping, but the cycle room at Rev Cycle Studio in McHenry Row is no dance club. Halfway into the studio's Rev60 Zen class - a "fusion" of 40 minutes of cycling and 20 of yoga - a dozen cyclists are pedaling (and sweating) hard, following instructor Esther Collinetti's demands to go harder. Fifteen minutes later, the same group is quietly sinking into Warrior pose in the studio's small, warm yoga room, with Collinetti directing stretches and meditation.

Sixteen-year-old Eleanor Weir held her right leg out in front of her, arched that foot and brought her toes delicately down to the floor, then back up again. She was pretending that the floor was a cat, and she was trying to pet it with her foot. "Yup, bup, bup, bup" guest teacher Gerard Charles said, counting out the beat at Towson's Carver Center for Arts & Technology. Eleanor and 27 other cat petters in training were taking an intermediate-level ballet class with Charles, the ballet master for the Joffrey Ballet.
