Lauded by reporters from Tropolism as "the coolest yoga studio of all time," and available for rental for private events, Yoga Deva was designed by Phoenix-based architects Blank Studio to serve as a calming sanctuary from the zooming cars and bustling sidewalks of the outside world. Long, walnut benches and a radiant-blue wall greet visitors in the front lobby, drawing them toward a sunlit yoga room with towering mirrors and white, wavy ceilings.
Serenity and balance in the studio is a must for owner, Shosh, who aims to deepen the mind-body awareness of all who enter. At the studio, she uses all natural modern technology to promote pain relief and anti-aging benefits. After sustaining numerous injuries during her two-decade career as a professional ballet dancer, Shosh found relief through inner reflection, which she harnessed during her time as a body-centered psychotherapist, and movement. Today, she channels her love of meditation and physical action into yoga, helming a team of certified instructors who lead classes in a variety of styles ranging from Vinyasa flow to Yin yoga. Sessions cater to students of all levels and can be modified to personally cater to clients. During each session, they guide students through poses and stretches designed to soothe the mind, heal the body, and enhance flexibility. The instructors strive to create a sanctuary of silence in the yoga room, requesting that guests leave all cellphones, pagers, and singing animatronic trout in the dressing room. In addition to yoga, Yoga Deva also offers massage therapy to ease minds and sore muscles.
Revive Salon & Spa’s 5,000-square-foot space grants its team of aesthetic experts boasting more than 7 years of experience enough elbow room to thoroughly augment human hides with a menu of hair, skin, nail, and massage services. Recently changing their look and image, the customer-focused salon vows to greet each customer with a smile and positive attitude. Moroccan Oil and Alfaparf haircare products allow the team of stylists to transform waning strands into vibrant head gardens, and Eminence and Iimage skincare serums glide their nourishing ingredients on faces and bodies to soften epidermal expanses. The salon’s nail technicians restore scratchers to fine fettle with manicures and pedicures that shape and trim nails, and massage therapists perform soothing strokes to oust back pains caused by living in a tiny dollhouse. Additional services include threading and Botox treatments.
Henna artists accent the newly minted skin with ornately crafted floral patterns and designs. With henna cones in hand, they weave images that vary in detail, from simple yet striking dragonflies and Ankh symbols to larger and more elaborate illustrations of elephants, rabbits, and trees. Ceremonial henna tattoos decorate bodies with a reddish brown ink that's believed to bring good luck. Customers can further enhance their features at the hands of threading artists, who brandish strands of thin cotton to meticulously shape eyebrows and remove unwanted facial hair. The process is quicker and gentler than traditional waxing, allowing patrons to stop by whenever they're on lunch or have placed an identically dressed mannequin at their desk.
Though housed in an expansive 1,500-square-foot facility, Jimmy Joseph Lux Spa is an intimate, stress-free oasis—one where aestheticians and massage therapists slow time and dissipate anxieties with long, flowing strokes and renewing scrubs. Before entering one of six private treatment rooms, guests cool down with a drink from the complimentary-beverage bar and can let their senses guide them to the aromatherapy-relaxation room, where flower and essential-oil scents pervade the air.
The cross-sensory revelry continues in the treatment rooms, whose soft lights and plush massage tables set the stage for facials, sea-salt scrubs, and couples massages that call a truce to thumb wars over the TV remote. The spacious spa also houses a clothing-and-accessories boutique where a strong dose of retail therapy further calms the mind as eyes peruse chic jewelry, handbags, and candles.
