Though the walls at The Royal Brush are painted in a rainbow of colors, the pottery pieces that line the shelves stand out as white, blank canvases. Dishes, cups, and figurines await coatings of provided paints, welcoming fledgling artists to unleash their creativity or to fulfill the weekly quota of spilling paint on their shirts. The studio welcomes parties for special events such as birthdays, bridal showers, and ladies’ nights and encourages planners to bring their own food and beverages, including BYOB drinks for adult gatherings.
Robbie Michelle Short holds three titles at Half Moon Yoga: owner, certified instructor, and spiritual chef. She tries to whip up "spiritual food" to accompany each of her lessons, dispensing sage quotations or morsels of philosophy that inspire her students. This emphasis on personal peace infuses the entire studio, where the curriculum incorporates a meditative element into numerous yoga disciplines. Teachers weave stories of serene imagery during Blissful Flow classes and segue from ashtanga's salutations to dynamic poses without sacrificing introspection. Their workshops—which include seminars for beginners and walking meditation through Aspen Grove Park—also balance the focus between physical and emotional training.
The studio accepts yoga students of all skill levels and supplies guests with the necessary props, mats, and sunglasses for auras that glow too brightly. In addition to their classes, the staff hosts a variety of energy treatments, from reiki to Indian champiassage—a soothing type of bodywork for the neck, back, and shoulders.
Before joining forces, Jennifer Goldstein-Fritz and Alba Gonzalez-Nylander spent years pursuing their individual passions for video, honing their craft separately at renowned companies including FOX, E!, and CBS. Eager to venture out on their own, the two women joined their talents in 2010, co-founding AJ Media Services with the goal of combining their knowledge, with services that include bringing major-media quality techniques to home movies. In the years since filming their first promo, Jennifer and Alba have worked tirelessly to create polished, unique moving pictures via a host of services, from video production to duplication and transfer services. To create immersive digital experiences, AJ’s virtual tours throw viewers into smooth, 360-degree views of spaces, from the dining room of a recently opened restaurant to a new home’s finished basement and its organ-playing phantom.
Photographers Paul and Sheri Bartoszek have a knack for capturing images at exactly the right moment, whether they’re snapping shots of a newly wedded couple slowly waltzing across the dance floor or shooting film of a musician as his fingers fly up and down a guitar amid thousands of screaming fans. No matter if they’re in the Serendipity Studio or the brand-new downtown Nashville studio, the photographers strive to take pictures worthy of placement among their other works, many of which hang in galleries across the United States and Canada. They then develop prints, which can framed or pinned proudly to clothes, and supply clients with high-resolution digital images.
In addition to snapping their own shots, the shutterbugs teach photography classes. Students learn how to operate point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras and how to get the most out of natural or artificial lighting in various indoor and outdoor locations, such as the square in Murfreesboro or a doghouse.
