Collegeville Yoga Bar is a community yoga studio that’s based around the idea that many different types of yoga are beneficial to the body and mind. In this spacious 2,000-square-foot studio, students lay their mats down on the wood floors to take mother/daughter, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga from certified and dedicated instructors. Relax and stretch in a calming Yin yoga class, or fuse awareness and alignment during the energetic postures of a Vinyasa session. Collegeville Yoga Bar also hosts regular events, from in-house workshops to doing yoga on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
La Vita Bella's treatments include everything from Botox injections to spray tan to eyelash extensions. With a highly qualified team of specialists, clients can rest assured that they're in the hands of caring professionals, whether opting for a pedicure with peppermint essential oils or a facial with natural plant and marine extracts. The stylists are no slouches, either, with nine different color services that range from face-framing highlights to mind-bending tie-dye.
Modern wall sconces and full-wall windows cast glow on the salon's polished wood floors and cozy leather mani-pedi chairs. Here, with the precision and artistry of a thousand microscopic architects, nail techs meticulously renovate nails and adorn with basic and long-lasting Shellac color. As tired feet steep in a soothing pedicure bath, tension fades away, calluses soften, and nails prepare for custom nail art or sleek French tips. Clients may also solicit a skilled aesthetician to clear away unwanted hair from your face, body, or antlers during swift waxing sessions.
At Iris Nail Salon, trained techs spruce up digits with manicures and pedicures. Turn over hands to the authority of a nail guru, who spends 45 minutes on the gel manicure, tenderly clipping nails, curtailing cuticles, and blanketing tips in a choice of long-lasting OPI Axxium, CND Shellac, or Orly polishes. Clients can give all limbs equal treatment with the 70-minute manicure and pedicure. While technicians file, buff, and tattoo on a desired hue, hot stones keep feet from spreading gossip to the hands. Alternatively, the spa pedicure infuses feet with a rejuvenating scent—such as lemon tree, lavender, or peppermint—as a tech evicts callous patches and slathers feet in a mud mask in preparation for rain dancing.
Luxury skincare regimens typically focus on the face, but for more than a decade, the technicians at Crystal Nails & Spa have instead pampered hands and feet. Feet soak up a foot-facial mask, tingle with baking-soda-exfoliation treatments, and luxuriate in green-tea soaks. Manicures are enhanced by add-ons such as shoulder massages, keratin-lotion gloves, and electric gloves that warm hands more efficiently than installing solar panels on them.
When they?re not adding polish, gel, or acrylics to nails, the staff can be found administering chair massages or ultrasonic-cavitation treatments, which reduce cellulite and make beautiful body shape.
