Dr. Cheryl Perlis, M.D.

SPYRL, Chicago’s newest Gyrotonic studio in downtown Highland Park, will present an exclusive women’s event with Dr. Cheryl Perlis, M.D., of Perlis Wellness Center, in Lake Bluff, as she shares her knowledge of inner and outer beauty in the first of her three-part seminar, The Secrets of Aging Gracefully. Perlis, a member of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, helps people defy their age, look younger and rejuvenate the energy, mental clarity and focus that they would like to have.

Strengthening Your Inner and Outer Beauty takes place from 6 to 7 p.m., August 31; Understanding Your Brain Chemistry from 6 to 7 p.m., September 28, and The Art of Cosmetic Treatments from 6 to 7 p.m., October 26. Certified instructor Amy Pena will provide a demonstration of the Gyrotonic method. All proceeds will benefit the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation, providing opportunities and resources to children and their families in need. Refreshments will be provided.

Tickets are $10. Location: 1781 Green Bay Rd., Highland Park. For reservations (required), call 847-348-0822 or email
