Over her 15 years as a fitness instructor, Ananda Shala's owner, Aimee Firor McBride developed a special passion for yoga and Pilates. Her love of the practice led her to India, and into the studios of renowned teachers such as Shiva Rea during her more than 500 hours of teacher studies. She draws upon this experience as she helms a coterie of certified instructors who lead groups through classes and workshops. On hardwood floors flooded with natural sunlight, instructors guide students through Prana Flow Vinyasa yoga for all levels, hot yoga in an 80- to 90-degree room, and meditation classes.
In addition to yoga, instructors also teach Pilates, including mat classes, sessions that integrate weights and strength training, and machines that help lengthen and strengthen muscles. During private sessions they help students work on individual needs or master a specific technique such as folding laundry with their feet. Corporate workshops help business people soothe their minds during stressful situation, and special events such as yoga parties and classes for kids and teens explore yoga in a fun environment.
Organic Sugaring Center's hair-removal paste is so organic, you could eat it: it's made from just sugar, lemon, and water. This recipe makes the process gentler on skin, as does the paste's ability to be applied at body temperature. Plus, the sugar adheres only to hair, not live skin cells, which can make sugaring less painful than other forms of hair removal, such as waxing or vacuuming it away. What's more, the paste can exfoliate dry, dead cells, and since it's water-soluble, any residue is easily cleaned from the skin. Though Organic Sugaring Center's aestheticians perform full-body treatments for both men and women, they specialize in Brazilians, which can be done in a variety of fun shapes, and completely customized to suit the client's needs.
When looking for ways to pamper and indulge their clients, the aestheticians of Sugaring House draw inspiration from time-honored treatments. They remove unwanted hair by either waxing patches away or by using centuries-old sugaring techniques to naturally leave the skin smooth and stubble-free. Using organic skincare products whenever possible, the aestheticians also perform customized facial treatments intended to even out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliate away impurities, and reduce the signs of enlarged pores. Sugaring House also offers massage appointments, and the therapists can alleviate muscle aches by using flowing Swedish techniques, focused deep-tissue pressure, or a combination of Swedish strokes and assisted yoga stretches.
