Q&A with Henry Mcmillan, Co-founder/teacher
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Because practicing yoga is always a personal progression, it never gets boring. The more students come, the more they wonder how they survived without yoga in the past. Once they see their strength increase and their anxiety decrease, students come back again and again for more.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
A typical class begins with some easy stretching and builds into a flow-sequence of poses that heats up the body and calms the mind. From here, depending on whatever level the student is, we will work on a series of arm balances, standing balances and core work all to the beat of an eclectic playlist of music. Each class will wind down with some restorative poses finishing in a final savasana, which helps to ground the mind and let the body rest at the very end of class.
When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
Hollywood Power Yoga is a partnership between four teachers who met at another Los Angeles studio a few years ago. Their relationship and passion for a vigorous workout—combined with a shared goal of freeing themselves of the negative aspects of the mind—led them to open this yoga studio.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Hollywood Power Yoga is a growing community of yoga lovers who simply want to improve the quality of their lives through exercise and conscious breathing. It is very much a judgement-free place that focuses on each individual's path to a better self in the midst of a community of people.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
