A modernly geometric space lavished in cream and umber tones, Suddenly Beautiful's staff calls on their diverse expertise to trim excess volume from both locks and limbs. In private treatment rooms, technicians cloak patrons with one of seven body wraps, which aim to deduct 6–20 inches from all over the body. The salon's lavender walls and picture windows surround stylists as they infuse hair with products from Eufora, Matrix, and Moroccanoil, conjuring more strength and shine than a bodybuilding magic mirror. Massage by either licensed therapists or the warm water jets of hydrotherapy merge with specialized facials and tanning services to round out the pampering menu.

The hands behind Aurora Serenity, Christopher Delamar, uses his national certification to achieve a simple goal: send clients out of his welcoming studio feeling as though they've taken a step toward better health. Using the long, kneading strokes of Swedish or deep-tissue massage, he and the all-male staff at Aurora Serenity eases discomfort and pain, and also keeps a stock of smooth stones that can be warmed and placed on the back for added relief.

Q&A with Shasenaye', Marketing Director

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

When it comes to motivation Dharma Hot Yoga has a sensible approach. We recommend three solutions.

One, check in with an instructor about your goals. Set a goal, visualize the actuation of the goal, list the reasons for the goal and break the steps into intermediate achievements like (finishing ten classes in two weeks).

Two, define your strategy. Let this work for you, for example if you are training and have reached an edge, allow for a few Restorative Yoga classes to boost your internal needs before pushing forward again. In addition, bring a friend or get to know your classmates. Allow the team mentality to inspire you into action.

Three, visit the big picture. Dharma offers great deals on massage and aesthetician services. If there is a desire to look good and feel excellent then treat yourself to a few of the other services and get back on track.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

At Dharma every class starts with a bit of expectation and excitement. Then whether you are doing a rigorous workout class or one of our relaxation series we will get down to business with focus and centered movement. Each class ends with either a round of high fives, a resting pose, or an internal moment of meditation followed by a smile of gratitude.
