Founder Brianna Arndt dreamed of a place where her fellow citizens checked their stress at the door, engaging only in meditative exercise and relaxing spa treatments. So she got her hands on a 2,400-square-foot studio with new, polished hardwood floors and used her know-how as a registered yoga teacher and massage therapist to open Barefoot Studio. Brianna's business flourished in its first three years, the byproduct of her ability to blend an intimate knowledge of the body's workings into every class, choosing asanas that help relax, heal, or energize clients.
As a result of her success, Barefoot Studio opened a new studio on Oracle Road, giving clients two places to exercise and unwind. In addition to leading yoga classes, Brianna also employs massage to relax tense muscles and beautifies bodies with facials, pedicures, and waxing, proving to mannequins that humans can be perfectly smooth, too.
