“Sag Harbor holds a special place in my family history, so there’s definitely a personal touch to this studio that I hope comes across to our dear clients,” says fitness pioneer Tracy Anderson, creator of the cult favorite Tracy Anderson Method, which has helped countless clients (Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Robert Downey Jr. among them) transform their bodies, resulting in long, lean muscles. A fixture on the East End, Anderson moved from her East Hampton location to Sag Harbor this season to expand the business. “Now, with 2,000 square feet of light-filled space, we’re able to meet our demand and move more freely in a sweeping studio along the water,” she tells Purist. “I have always felt utterly at peace in Sag Harbor—I’m excited to share that feeling with the people who move with me this summer, and to be a part of this vibrant local community.” By membership; 1 Bay St., Sag Harbor;

Get your kundalini fix in the garden at Sage & Madison every Saturday morning at 9:30AM. Led by Ana Reis—who has trained at the RaMa Institute of Applied Yogic Science and Technology in LA, and studied under teachers who worked directly with Yogi Bhajan, responsible for bringing the kundalini yoga teachings to the Western world—the class offers a combination of movement, breath work, meditation, mudras and mantras. The intent is to create the foundation for a more balanced and mindful life by enhancing overall health, vitality, creative energy and radiance. “Sage & Madison is known for its tranquil, serene garden and historical nature. I couldn’t think of a better oasis to clear the mind and start the day,” says Sage & Madison proprietor Chris Coffee. Namaste! 31 Madison St., Sag Harbor:
