Pro Tip: Individual creativity is encouraged, acrylic paint will stain, no painting experience required
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Class instructors are professional artists and matriculated educators. They cultivate individual creativity through step-by-step guidance in color mixing and acrylic painting techniques.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
That everyone has their own style and voice when engaging in the creative process. I love sharing outlets for creative expression with strangers, and in turn watching them realize their own unique gifts and abilities through the medium of paint.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
The creative abilities of participants who thought they lacked artistic skill.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Shelscapes offers professional classes where artistic process is more celebrated than product. Fun is encouraged, along with enjoying a night out, but more importantly [they help] wind down from the routine of modern life and engage the mind in a new and challenging way.
Those who craft edible masterpieces find what they need at The Cake World. Part shop, part school, it outfits bakers of all experience levels with the stuff and skills they need to create towering, edible sculptures from Satin Ice fondant and gumpaste using special tips, cutters, veiners, modeling tools, and more. Rows of edible embellishments crowd shelves, shiny cookie cutters dangle from hooks, and stacks of diverse cake molds invite bakers to expand their imaginations. In the spacious cake-making studio, hands-on classes cover specific decoration topics, special guest artists lead themed workshops, and kids learn how to decorate cupcakes and cakes during birthday parties.
Despite many obvious differences, new yogis and fighter pilots share a common fear: turning upside-down for the first time. At Yoga Sakti, however, instructors have installed a yoga wall that acts as a fail-safe for students who want to practice their inversions. A system of straps and props support pupils as they attempt advanced postures or strive to overcome physical difficulties, such as back problems. An aid for beginners and experts alike, the wall also acts as a symbol of the large studio's welcoming, encouraging atmosphere.
When they aren't manning the wall, yoga instructors lead classes in a wide variety of styles, from heated Vinyasa sequences to mellow gentle-stretch sessions or even mellower Nap in Your Parked Car seminars. Variety is a major theme running through the gym's curriculum: TRX routines bookend spin classes and ballet-barre workouts or combine with kettlebell swings to form one of several combo classes. For a more meditative visit, guests can explore the onsite wellness center, where massage, acupuncture, and hypnosis therapy aim to calm the mind.
