The doctors and staff of MediPro Direct Slim use a truly holistic approach to weight loss—that is, they target fat from both the inside and out. Their arsenal of noninvasive fat-reduction technology handles the job from the outside, calling on lasers, sound waves, and mechanical massage to flush fat from the body in treatments that can be performed in as little as a lunch break. The Cavi-Lipo system, meanwhile, uses ultrasound energy to painlessly perforate fat cells in a treatment that has been demonstrated in real-time at trade shows and featured on Dr. Oz.
To spur weight loss from within, the team offers a number of effective weight-loss programs. According to the client's body type and weight loss goals, the experts can devise a regimen that incorporates specialized protein or low-calorie nutrition plans to help bodies shed pounds and gain energy.

Though the process of becoming a yoga teacher involves memorizing sanskrit and learning the roots and traditions of yoga, the best teachers manage to insert their own personality and teaching style into their classes. So when Michelle Ann Thielen founded Northwest Yoga Academy, she designed a teacher training that aims to help budding instructors find that sweet spot between honoring the long tradition of yoga and empowering teachers to develop their own teaching style. The school's instructors lead students through the 200- and 500-hour certification courses, as well as shorter workshops that focus on building solid foundations for a deeper yoga practice. But no matter the training, Michelle and her team work to make sure students find wholeness in mind, body, soul, and spirit.
