Before she was the personal makeup artist to Barack Obama during his campaign for the presidency, Jennifer Bradley was a stage and screen actress who struggled with acne-prone skin. To combat it, she started creating her own skincare formulas that were free of mineral oils, fragrances, and fillers. Those formulas soon became her business, Jennifer Bradley Corporation products, which she now wields as a makeup artist to the stars.
In addition to being touted in the pages of People and US Weekly, her makeup and skincare lines have graced the faces of Michelle Obama, Kelly Clarkson and Pamela Anderson. She regularly teaches clients how to become their own makeup masters
during Makeup 101 classes, where she shows them how to cover age spots, contour cheekbones, and create a smoky eye that doesn't induce cravings for barbecue.
Shifting energies in the body can have a powerful impact on your overall health, from releasing deeply rooted stress to protecting the body from injury. At Energy Shift Yoga & Wellness, the goal is to move energy for its positive benefits. A variety of yoga classes, massage work, and energy work aid in this mission. For example, morning yoga classes blend gentle stretching with awakening postures to boost energy and help students feel great all day. Other yoga classes use postures and movements designed specifically to provide stress relief or relaxation, and during restorative yoga, the students use bolsters, blankets, and other props for additional support and flexibility. Faster-paced Vinyasa classes are also available, as well as breath and meditation classes.
At CrossFit Total Empowerment, instructors adopt an inclusive approach to fitness. It deviates from traditional workout regimens by using ever-changing sequences of high-intensity, functional exercises. Each class is structured around the sorts of actions that people perform in everyday life?such as running, lifting, and climbing stairs?albeit with a much greater emphasis on intensity.The workouts are scalable to any level, so they prove challenging for competitive athletes as well as casual exercisers. Attendees push themselves at their own pace while swinging kettlebells, performing deadlifts, jumping rope, and using hula-hoops made of concrete. Bolstered by encouragement from coaches and their fellow students, customers increase their strength and stamina, and over time, can improve their speed, agility, and flexibility.
