Spray Tan Pre & Post Care

Achieve the very best results by:

24 Hours Prior to Session

Exfoliate:  This is your most important task when receiving a flawless spray tan.  24-hours prior to your appointment, clear away any dry, dead skin cells with a exfoliating scrub. Any shaving or waxing should be completed 24-hours prior to session.  Avoid using high pH shower products or moisturizers. 


Day of Session

Avoid applying anything to the skin that may act as a barrier, preventing the bronzers from penetrating your skin.  Do not use creams, lotions, or perfumes prior to session.  Remove any make-up.   It is always best to wear dark loose fitting cotton clothing. If clothing is too tight, you risk rubbing off the bronzers. You will enter a private room where you will remove your clothing. This is up to you and your level of comfort. You can wear a dark swimsuit or underwear. The solution will wash out of most clothing.  Wash the clothing worn as soon as possible after your session. 


After Session Care

After 5 minutes of being completely dry, you may dress in your loose fitting dark clothing and you should not bathe or sweat excessively for nine hours. The solution will give you an immediate bronzing effect - a result of a coloring additive in the solution that will remain on the skin until you are actually tan. When you shower, the coloring will come off to reveal your actual tan beneath.  After your first shower, keep your skin moisturized & avoid exfoliating.

About Yoga

About Yoga
About Yoga:
Yoga is the union, of body, mind, heart and spirit.  Align the body and breath with mindful attention and enhance your ability to flow with the changing events of life.  Yoga can improve sleep, vitality, balance weight, overall health and well-being, strength, flexibility, balance, and range of motion in the joints. and spine.  Slow down life's hectic pace to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and relieve anxiety. 

 

Yoga Classes:

Yoga Mix:  A blend of breath, awareness, flowing and static postures.    All levels

Yoga Flow:  Vinyasa or Flow is linking postures together, moving from one to the next using awareness of body and breath.  This is generally a slower flow.   Intermediate level

Restorative Yoga:  The use of props provides support to relax in longer held postures on the floor, to open the spine in all directions.  Relieve stress and anxiety.        All  levels

Mindful Yin Yoga:  Stretch connective tissue and joints primarily in the generally tight areas of the spine, hips, & pelvis.  Floor postures are held for a period of time, at an appropriate edge, while the mind  and body becomes restful.  Supports can be used to keep the body comfortably still.  Open the meridians allowing more prana energy to flow, stimulating organs generating balanced health and a calm presence.          All levels 
 
Yoga Essentials:  For those new to yoga, those with physical limitations, those returning to yoga, and ongoing students wanting to review the basics.  Learn skills using props such as blocks, blankets, or straps when needed, to assist the body as you develop flexibility and strength required in each basic posture.  Verbal and visual directions, along wtih gentle physical adjustments are given by the teacher.  Encouraged for most students before attending more challenging yoga classes.              All levels

Chair Yoga: For anyone challenged by balance, getting up and down from the floor, and helpful for long hours sitting.  For any population and those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, arthritis, diabetes, breathing and heart disorders, MS, scoliosis, and chronic pain. Like other styles of yoga, chair yoga can help improve brain function and memory, anxiety, and depression.   All levels

 

Beginner Level:  Those new to yoga, those with physical limitations, those returning to yoga or have participated in only a few yoga classes.

Intermediate Level:  Those who are familiar with the basic form of most yoga postures.  Those with enough core strength and flexibility to move easily from one posture to another and know when to use props and make personal adjustments.  For those who are able to hold postures for longer time to build strength and flexibility. 

Advanced Level:  Those with enough strength and presence to participate safely, increasing their ability to sustain postures longer, and to safely and wisely attempt more challenging postures.


 

 

Personal Yoga Training:  This is applicable for those less interested in attending classes, for those who wish to receive personalized and individual training, and for anyone wishing to accelerate their ability to perform the postures skillfully.  Ongoing students seeking assistance in developing more skillful techniques or specific adaptations will enjoy and benefit from personal yoga training.  Learning may come more quickly when full attention is on one student's particular strengths and challenges.  This can also help in developing a daily yoga or meditation practice.

Yoga Etiquette:  A guide to help everyone have a pleasant yoga experience.


Be On Time:  Arrive early to set up your space.  Inform the teacher of any condition, illness or injury or surgery that may prevent movement or require props or adaptations. 

Speak or Visit Quietly:  Please don't disturb those who choose to begin quietly resting before class.

Do not enter during meditation:  Wait until we start to move or the teacher invites you in.  In this beginning, we set quietly for a few moments to become centered and present, letting go of the day.  Entering during this time can be disruptive to those already seated in class.

Turn off Cell Phones:  Prior to class, make sure you phone is turned off.  If you forget, and it rings get up and turn it off immediately. 

Eating:  Don't eat a heavy meal at least 2 hours before a yoga class.  An easily digested snack is appropriate up to 30 minutes before class.  Snacks available at the juice bar are a good choice if you are hungry.  Be sure that water bottles have lids on tight.

Leave your shoes & worries at the door:  Please check your ego and any personal non yoga belongings in the cubbies by the door, or tuck them in the corners if the cubbies are full.  Don't clutter the space around your mat with shoes, purses, etc.  Lockers are available for personal items. 


Bring your own mat:  For reasons of hygiene, using your own mat is best.  Label your mat in case you leave it behind.  There are mats and props available for use or for sale at the front desk.  Please wipe the club's mat with disposable sanitary towels after each use.

Listen to your own body:  Honor yourself and any physical limitations you may have.  Listening closely to your own body is required for a safe and beneficial yoga experience.
 
Stay through the end:  Yoga class has a beginning, a middle, and an end.  This cycle will create balance.  If you discover that the class is not for you, you can choose another class next time that is more suitable.

The ending posture (Savasana) is a time to rest the mind and body while incorporating the work you have done during the class, and help relieve you of stress. 

Inform the teacher:  Please let your teacher know about any surgery, illness or limitation that may affect your participation.  This information will help to advise your necessary adjustments.
