Robbie Michelle Short holds three titles at Half Moon Yoga: owner, certified instructor, and spiritual chef. She tries to whip up "spiritual food" to accompany each of her lessons, dispensing sage quotations or morsels of philosophy that inspire her students. This emphasis on personal peace infuses the entire studio, where the curriculum incorporates a meditative element into numerous yoga disciplines. Teachers weave stories of serene imagery during Blissful Flow classes and segue from ashtanga's salutations to dynamic poses without sacrificing introspection. Their workshops—which include seminars for beginners and walking meditation through Aspen Grove Park—also balance the focus between physical and emotional training.
The studio accepts yoga students of all skill levels and supplies guests with the necessary props, mats, and sunglasses for auras that glow too brightly. In addition to their classes, the staff hosts a variety of energy treatments, from reiki to Indian champiassage—a soothing type of bodywork for the neck, back, and shoulders.
Xtend Barre's founder, Andrea Rogers, has traveled the world as a professional dancer, sharing the stage with celebrities such as Enrique Iglesias and Aaron Carter along the way. Once she slowed her pace a bit, a second career path emerged: fitness instruction. As a certified Pilates teacher, she witnessed how focused, floor-based isometrics could sculpt muscles as long and flexible as a dachshund doing a gymnastics routine. However, these exercises didn't always raise the heart rate enough to provide a cardiovascular workout. Disappointed, she began to experiment. Lo and behold, when the moves were flipped upright, she could pair them with dance elements, which solved the heart-rate problem and added a dose of excitement. Barre exercises from her ballet training became a staple of the routine, helping to stretch and strengthen the body from the inside out. In addition to burning calories and enhancing coordination, the music-fueled workouts can be tailored to suit new exercisers, injured athletes, and moms-to-be.
