Who says you have to jump, grunt, strain and punish your body to get amazing results from your workout? Not with PiYo…PiYo combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. And, we crank up the speed to deliver a true fat-burning, low-impact workout that leaves your body looking long, lean and incredibly defined. PiYo isn't like standard Pilates and yoga classes that make you hold long, intense poses, or lead you through dozens of repetitive, microscopic core movements. PiYo speeds everything up—including your results—by introducing you to dynamic, flowing sequences that can burn serious calories at the same time as they lengthen and tone your muscles and increase your flexibility.

Dakota County, in partnership with the City of Lakeville, is reconstructing 202nd Street to a 2-lane divided highway from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue (County Road 23) in 2019.
County Road 50 is currently an undivided 2-lane rural roadway that has substantially deteriorated. The project will reconstruct County Road 50 from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue as a divided 2-lane roadway with turn lanes at all public street intersections, trails along both sides of the roadway, and a trail underpass just west of Highview Avenue. A roundabout will be constructed at the County Road 50 and Holyoke Avenue intersection, and a traffic signal will be constructed at the County Road 50 and Cedar Avenue intersection with the proposed project.
This open house will provide residents with updates and answer any questions about this project.
