Lorraine Landau’s new business, Equilibrium Studio, in the Village of Pawling, opened in November as the logical culmination of her professional journey as a licensed mental counselor and her personal journey to sustainable health through a variety of movement and exercise techniques. She had tried balancing her sedentary job with long-distance running, but then orthopedic injuries began taking their toll.

“That’s when I decided I needed a new format,” she says. “I trained and began to teach at the local gyms—yoga, Pilates, Barre and low-impact cardio classes, including water aerobics, cycling and rowing. I got into a whole new dimension after running, and I decided to bring my passion to Pawling, by creating a tranquil environment in the middle of natural surroundings.”

Equilibrium offers yoga, Pilates and Barre, as well as stretching and strengthening classes designed to help people rehabilitate from injuries and improve their athletic performance. The studio has small classes, experienced instructors and individual attention, Landau says, and it is “very different than the gym. I want my members to incorporate these healthy moves into their daily lifestyle and also bring it to the outdoors. I use yoga in my counseling practice, and I hope to continue my practice in Pawling.”

Cost: Unlimited classes are $75 a month for adults and $45 for students with current student IDs. Individual classes are $10 a session. Private sessions are $50 per hour. Location: Pawling Commons, 63 E. Main St., Pawling, NY. For more info, call 845.832.0037 or 914.523.7703, or visit Equilibriumycm.com.
