Pinecone Center offers yoga classes each weekend morning and various yoga and fitness classes at 5:30 and 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The facility, catering to people of all ages that want to improve their flexibility, strength, fitness and joie de vivre in a quiet setting with soothing music and no hustle-bustle, is also available for meetings and special events.

Pinecone Center is professional, but unpretentious. If you don’t have a yoga mat or the latest exercise clothing, haven’t seen that slim waistline in years, or lost your flexibility long ago, leave any such concerns at the door.

Pinecone’s renowned yoga instructors include Nancy Schalk, Carol Tharp-Perrin, Mimi Sosa, Latin Caldwell and Diane Hancock. Judy Hanna, Lynn Spencer-Nelson and Maureen Dobie teach belly dancing, hula hooping and adult tap dance, respectively. Also, Andra Faye Hinkle offers lessons in voice, violin and various other musical instruments while Karla Carter teaches hip-hop and modern dance to preschoolers.

Pinecone Center is named from an unusual event during a final relaxation. Imagine being flat on your back, breathing consciously, when something begins floating toward you from behind your closed eyelids. As it gets close, you realize, “Hey, that’s a pinecone!” and, zip, it floats right into your forehead. That is what happened to Maureen Dobie years ago, so when a commercial building in Rocky Ripple was for sale, she grabbed and rehabilitated it with the intention of honoring that pinecone “gift.”

Class fees: Usually $12 for 75 minutes for cardholders, with some teachers offering incentives. Location: 841 W. 53rd St. For more information, call 317-679-3717, email PineconeCenter@gmail.com or visit PineconeCenter.net.
