Much like a pie-eating contest, yoga requires well-timed breathing and stretchy pants. Open up and say om with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a one-month unlimited-yoga membership (a $70 value), a one-hour Swedish massage (a $40 value), and an eyebrow wax (a $12 value, for a $122 total value) at Barefoot Studio.
Taking a holistic approach to health, Barefoot Studio welcomes guests to relax and reenergize with yoga, massage, and skincare services in one spacious, tranquil space. Both namaste novices and seasoned sun-salutationers can stretch their abilities in a variety of classes meant to enhance vitality. Styles ranging from gentle restorative to Ashtanga flow stretch and strengthen stressed bodies or recovering limbo champions. During the Swedish massage, a highly trained therapist kneads and presses to clients' specifications, tailoring the treatment into a couture cocoon of contentment. An expert aesthetician employs Cirepil, a wax product that works at comfortable low temperatures, to wrestle even the most unruly brows into artfully arched eye accessories.
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.
