CoreLab is the only studio in northern Westchester offering the innovative Lagree Fitness workout. Created by Sebastien Lagree, it fuses elements of strength training, circuit training and Pilates to strengthen, lengthen and tone the body quickly and safely. The workout involves an ever-changing series of exercises performed on the Megaformer, ensuring a heart-pumping, muscle-fatiguing, low-impact, body-shaping experience. At the core of this workout is the custom-built Megaformer, a significant evolution from the Pilates Reformer. The Megaformer provides constant resistance and counter-resistance using a system of springs and pulleys delivering an intense fullbody workout. It offers numerous exercise options for the upper and lower body, and enables the body to transition smoothly and efficiently from one exercise to the next while maintaining an elevated heart rate. While on the Megaformer, your muscles are engaged in a non-aggressive, low-impact manner, making this workout as good for your joints as it is for your muscles. The workout is aimed at both men and women and will leave you with a lithe and powerful body, earned in a safe and effective manner. Class size limited to six, ensuring individual attention. Hours: Open Monday through Saturday, see class schedule online.

Tails have been wagging since Must Love Dogs opened in downtown Katonah in July 2011. Four-legged friends of all sizes and breeds can expect spa-like attention from master groomer and owner Jessica Riina. Two- to 3-hour sessions involve bathing, drying and extensive grooming of hair, skin and nails. Biodegradable shampoos and natural perfumes, homemade by Jessica from essential oils, are sensitive to canine well-being. Every dog should be groomed for looks and good health. “Groomers really know their dogs’ bodies and can recognize fleas, ticks, growths and other signs of disease. When dogs are well-groomed, they not only look better, they feel better,” Jessica says. The retail shop features fine specialty harnesses, leashes, jackets, toys, bones, Puppia brand products and natural skin care products including chemical-free flea and tick repellents. Excellent customer service and Jessica’s animal intuition stand out: “I feel a special connection to my dogs and their owners,” she says. “I love dogs, so I love what I do” — and it shows! Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call for extended holiday hours.

It’s fun to visit G. Willikers, no matter your age! You’ll enjoy shopping for toys that girls and boys will really use — from baby’s first teething ring to board games the whole family spends hours playing — and all kinds of gifts. Meghan Bazaar’s mom, Linda Ambrosino, began G. Willikers in Saratoga Springs and the Albany area 25 years ago, so making kids happy is definitely in the genes. “We’re an old-fashioned store in the best sense of the word,” says Meghan. “Our products focus on imaginary play and art, fostering education as well as imagination.” G. Willikers stocks well-made toys, puzzles and games from around the world — items kids won’t play with once and toss aside. “There’s a strong organic and ecofriendly bent here, too. That means a lot to us as well,” Meghan says. Customer service is top-drawer, with knowledgeable, helpful staff — mostly parents and teachers in their other lives — who know just what children love! Gift wrapping’s free of charge, a huge plus in these hectic days. Hours: Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tantalize your senses and enrich your life at Ebba, a lifestyle boutique in the heart of Katonah. Owner Viktoria Fisch offers a well-curated mix of products for self and home — including the best examples of Dash & Albert Rugs, CP Shades, Subtle Luxury cashmere, Laurie Berg Jewelry, Leslie Janson designs, Papaya, Angel Dear baby, Roost, Abundance Candles and much, much more. As a child, Viktoria’s sanctuary was her tiny second-floor bathroom, where she mixed batches of lotions and potions and clogged up the drains with all sorts of “unusual and special ingredients.” When Viktoria’s mom, Ebba, would call upstairs, asking for her daughter, Viktoria would offer the same squeaky reply: “Mom, I’m busy creating.” Not much has changed since then, except perhaps the bathroom and the ingredients. Ebba represents the culmination of all the things that made that one little girl feel “abundant within.” Viktoria still believes if you can feel your own abundance, anything is possible. Complimentary gift wrapping available. Hours: Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Scott Wunderlich and Arthur Wunderlich

When Arthur Wunderlich opened Village Wine & Spirit Shop in the mid-1970s, local wine enthusiasts focused on imports. Arthur knew it was only a matter of time before American wines were as popular as Bordeaux and Burgundy. Named One of Westchester’s Great Wine Shops by Westchester magazine and rated five stars for its outstanding website, they have one of the largest selections of American wines in addition to the best of Europe — from Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhone Valley to Italy, Spain and Portugal — and exciting wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South America. Scott Wunderlich gave up his job as a trial attorney to come into the shop full-time. In an era where boutique importers and distributors have been gobbled up by large houses, he seeks out importers and distributors believing in quality instead of quantity. Whether in the shop or on the website, we offer personal service in the selection of wines that will complement your taste and distinctive menus. Local and worldwide delivery. Hours: Open seven days a week. Monday through Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday through Saturday to 8 p.m., Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Step into La Catena and experience a taste of Tuscany. Master restaurateur Emilio Delija has created a warm, inviting ambience that was praised by The New York Times for its “Old-World charm.” La Catena’s signature dish, pappardelle alla Emilio, features broad ribbons of homemade pasta with porcini, shiitake and oyster mushrooms and a shimmer of cream, tossed in a hollowed-out wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and flamed with cognac. It was voted Best Tableside Presentation of 2013 by Westchester magazine. Order up more excitement with branzino or honey-sweet Dover sole filleted in front of you. Meats, fish and produce are always fresh, prepared from scratch and beautifully presented. Desserts are not to be missed: try the white chocolate strawberry shortcake, or the zabaglione or banana flambé, made tableside. La Catena offers a spacious party room for your next special event, and expert catering for your at-home celebration. Hours: Open seven days a week.

riverrun rare book room

It’s the call every mother dreads: “Your child has head lice.” No worries. Anna Albano-Krosche, the Lice Lady of Westchester, can come to the rescue 365 days a year, “because lice is always an emergency.” Anna is Westchester’s original head lice removal expert. “I’ve been in business since 1998, and I’ve treated over 10,000 heads,” says Anna. She is the area’s only lice removal specialist with a freestanding salon. She also makes house calls. Anna frequently travels to schools and camps to do lice checks and to give presentations on head lice prevention. “I’ve been through this with my own children and myself, and I relate 100 percent to everybody who comes in,” she says. A client’s head is examined under a magnification light, then is given a 20minute, all-natural enzyme-based shampoo. Nits are combed from the hair, then the hair is rinsed, blown dry and rechecked. Clients leave the salon with a homework sheet, including instructions on how to “delouse your house.”

ew York School of Esthetics offers the New York State 600-hour esthetics (skin care) course, which leads to eligibility to sit for the state-board testing procedures. It is our mission to provide an exciting, wellplanned curriculum for students, one that will put you ahead in this fast-growing industry. The function of the school is to provide a professional environment where the student learns the theory and principles (hands-on) in esthetics. We will prepare all students for their New York State esthetic written and practical board exams. Since opening, New York School of Esthetics has not raised its tuition and includes more certifications in the undergraduate program than any other school of its kind. These certifications include microdermabrasion, basic chemical peel, body treatments and teeth whitening. Graduates are prepared for entry-level positions that include working with plastic surgeons and skin care specialists. The school’s graduates are employed in dermatologists’ offices and day spas throughout Westchester and Rockland counties. As one student said, “I learned so much compared to other schools of esthetics and they made us feel more like family rather than just friends! I graduated knowing that I am a professional with great knowledge in skin care!” New York School of Esthetics is fully accredited by National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences, Inc., (NACCAS) and offers financial aid to those who qualify. We participate in the Pell Grant program, Direct Student Loans and Parent Plus Loans.

Platinum Drive Realty serves a wide variety of clients — from firsttime buyers and sellers to experienced homeowners, and some of the area’s largest builders and investors — and has assembled a team of energetic agents, many of whom not only grew up in the areas they serve, but who also have worked in professional industries prior to joining the real estate field.
