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.
Great minds think alike, and this was definitely true for Kyle Baxter—a professional tree climber—and Bridget Baxter—an accomplished high-school and college cross-country and track runner. Each certified instructor owned or worked at a local Bikram studio, but it wasn’t until they met at a Bikram yoga convention in 2006 that they discovered each other. Now the married couple oversees two Bikram yoga locations, which offer classes for students of any level seven days a week. Each studio is kept at a toasty 105 degrees, and sessions are led by a certified Bikram instructor who guides patrons through muscle-building and stretching poses that promote healthy, lean bodies. A large towel, yoga mat, and water bottle are recommended for each class, so the studios offer rental towels and mats for those whose dog ate their yoga mat along with their homework.
Technicians at The Wax Factory exude professionalism, but the salon's atmosphere is anything but stuffy. Touting a laid-back approach to appointments that welcomes walk-ins or hirsute skydivers who just happen to drop in, beautifiers lead clients to private treatment rooms where they evacuate fuzz from bikini borders in 10 minutes or tug fringe from brows, lips, and chins. Men can unwind in the calming lobby before gearing up for swimsuit season with a Manzilian or Mankini wax, and both genders can liberate limbs with whole- or half-leg waxing services that accommodate the changing seasons or the rise and fall of kilt hemlines.
