Bikram?s series of 26 postures works every muscle in the body systematically, each pose building off the last throughout about 90 minutes.

Though aesthetician Marie Carmen is a recent graduate—she received her aesthetician certification in May 2011—her passion for pampering clients and making them feel exceptional would make one think she is a seasoned beauty vet.

Marie is also well-versed in galvanic and high-frequency treatments, which are designed to clear pores of unwelcome bacteria and residue from falling asleep face-down in a comfy pile of turkey stuffing.
