Beauty and Beyond’s menu is more akin to a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure novel than a traditional list of spa services. While hair stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians make sure externals look fabulous, massage therapists soothe the stuff below the surface inside private treatment rooms. Health-minded instructors, meanwhile, lead a diverse range of classes— including yoga, Pilates, and pole dancing—in sequestered areas dedicated to fitness.
Dr. Nader Awwad treats a wide range of ailments at his clinic, 1st Choice Chiropractic. Since pain can strike anywhere, he constantly updates his roster of therapies to remedy nearly any malady, from vertigo to carpal tunnel. He administers crack-less spinal adjustments and spinal decompression or teaches his clients strengthening exercises to stave off future injuries. To augment the alignments, he also keeps a few massage therapists on staff to help patients rid themselves of stress, which if left unchecked can lead to heart disease, insomnia, and reenacting Gallagher routines.
The studios at Bikram Yoga North Texas always stay a balmy 105 degrees. Their staff of 13 teachers leads the heated classes seven days a week, morning through evening. The heat serves to cleanse the body through sweat, and it helps limbs sink deeper into stretches, twists, and bends. Bikram?s series of 26 postures works every muscle in the body systematically, each pose building off the last throughout about 90 minutes.
Born in the late 1930s, Sri Dharma Mittra studied the eight branches of yoga under guru Sri Swami Kailashananda, the man largely responsible for introducing the healing practice of yoga to the Western world. Through years of selfless teaching, and focus on building a community of healthy, spiritually-centered yoga practitioners, Dharma Mittra developed a devoted following of students throughout the United States.
Arlington Yoga Center's instructors stay true to the yogi?s teachings by welcoming pupils into an oasis of soothing pastel-colored walls and an airy practice space, guiding students through a roster of classes for all skill levels. A quick perusal of the studio's schedule yields ample opportunities for rejuvenation in a variety of sessions, including the restorative sequences of Gentle Dharma, which invigorates minds and bodies alike with gentler, less demanding poses. Targeting the muscles that support the spine, Dharma 1 and 2 sessions incorporate the eight limbs and 40 phalanges of the style's philosophy into a series of asanas that promotes stamina, graceful flexibility, and the ability to imitate a statue. More advanced classes bump up the thermostat to 80 degrees in order to ensure a more invigorating workout with deeper stretches. As a precursor to attending yoga classes, Arlington Yoga Center requires all new students to fill out a waiver and leave their pet howler monkeys at home.
