Rising Lotus Yoga and Massage’s experienced instructors guide students from all walks of life during daily Vinyasa yoga classes to help build strength, flexibility, and tranquility. To help each pupil grow, teachers dispense personalized feedback while walking groups through poses and breathing exercises in a vibrant, dance-like flow. Students of all skill levels, including new students and those recovering from injuries, follow along with instructors, getting pose modifications to make each movement accessible and understandable.
Friday-night flows summon a spirit of giving as Rising Lotus Yoga partners with local charities to donate all of the proceeds to charity. Filled with gentle stretches and easy-to-follow poses, prenatal and restorative classes pepper the schedule with alternatives to athletic Vinyasa sessions. To complement the slate of yoga classes, the studio’s owner, massage therapist Amanda Workman-Lutter, relaxes muscles and treats pain with a variety of massage modalities.
Tuana Hair Design Fort Collins is all about beautiful hair. The award-winning salon stands apart from others thanks to the savvy stylists' European color and highlighting techniques, and dry cutting. With their diverse methods for coaxing the best out of manes, it only makes sense that the staff would teach others what they do. The salon team also serves as hair stylists at fashion shows and photo shoots, using products from Aveda and Bumble and bumble to bring their A-game despite the fact that they're on the road, just like when Denver Broncos travel to play the New York Mets.
Led by European-trained stylist Kazim Tercan and other experienced instructors, Tuana European Beauty Academy serves as a place for beauty enthusiasts to become skilled cosmetologists, manicurists, and aestheticians.
The stylists at Salon Salon stay abreast of fashion’s latest trends so that they can craft both classic and cutting-edge hairstyles for men, women, and children. This ongoing education helps the fashion artisans perform an extensive list of services, including feather and tinsel extensions, updos, and Keratin Complex treatments, which can smooth hair until it's slim enough to fit into its old high-school sun hat.
At Balayage Spa and Salon, stylists administer a range of services such as all-over color, haircuts, and weaves, while technicians beautify and bolster the strength of nails with sturdy Shellac polish. The team also performs face- and body-waxing treatments as well as massage.
Orb lights hang from the salon's ceiling like a bunch of grapes, illuminating tall tapered metal vases that sprout orange straw. The arrangement stands against a backdrop of stacked stone and lime-green walls, near the salon's centerpiece––a five-panel pentaptych painting with stylized scissors against a city skyline. Cutlery Salon's lush space is the clipping ground of California-trained stylist Sarah Marshall, who draws on more than eight years' experience as she revamps hair with products by Eufora, Schwarzkopf, Paul Mitchell, and Kevin Murphy. Sarah loves talking to guests in detail about their look, helping them find a hairstyle that suits their personality or one that can be woven seamlessly into their favorite scarf. Extending her beautification project beyond scalps, Sarah also offers facial waxing in addition to cut and coloring services.
Sarah Marshall no longer services clients at Cutlery Salon. She can be reached at her new location, Namaste Salon, located at 140 W Oak St, Suite 140, Fort Collins, CO 80524.
Murat Tercan has a world of salon experience?literally. The native Turk started out by helping his family open a salon in Ankara, then he went on to hone his craft at the L'Oreal Academy in Paris and the Wella and Schwarzkopf academies in Germany. He built his resume styling hair for fashion shows for Valentino, Versace, and Armani, later traveling as an international educator for L'Oreal.
Since making yet another home in Colorado, he opened his own space, Enchante, where he and his team perform advanced services such as designer haircuts, color corrections, and keratin treatments. In the spirit of Murat's background in education, stylists are committed to not just giving clients a style, but teaching them to maintain it. There's also an onsite spa where clients can retreat to receive Swedish massages and Dermalogica facials, or to ease their fear of scissors.
