An experienced team of soul-stretching yogis guides bodies into soothing formations with a seven-day schedule of various class styles for all skill levels. Newcomers can reach a state of tranquility typically reserved for Walt Whitman's pet dove during the Slow Flow class, which unites controlled breathing, proper alignment, and meditation techniques in a balanced trifecta of peaceful bliss. Ashtanga Blend sessions throw a spiritual curve ball to shake regular students out of their normal yoga routines, exploring different posture groups during a flowing one-hour practice. Advanced students in the Power Vinyasa class submerse themselves in a sultry labyrinth of creative, challenging techniques, for which strenuous exertion and high-energy muscle movements are the keys to survival. From the moment students arrive at the center’s colorful, gated garden, they can immediately hear the soft rippling of fairies holding hoop-dance classes.
Even with his 13 years of salon experience and training from Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Paul Mitchell, it still came as a surprise to Michael S. Krempel, owner and lead stylist at Michael Urban Hair Studio, to get a call from MTV. The producers of MTV's Made had selected a local teen to appear in the show and chose Krempel's salon to give him a makeover to build his confidence as a hip-hop dancer.
In addition to boosting self-esteem on television, Krempel and his staff of stylists give clients confidence-inspiring looks with cuts, colors, and Marcia Teixeira Brazilian keratin hair treatments. Patrons slip into cherry-red styling chairs amid shelves brimming with products from Keune, Mixture, and Kevin Murphy as well as Featherlock feather hair extensions. Those notes of red carry over onto artwork flecked with crimson and cabinets the color of a rebellious bull’s ear piercing.
