Expert Advice

With the rise of boutique beauty, there are so many different options to choose from. Whether you want a quick beauty fix before an outing, a more long-term treatment, or something to make you feel beautiful from the inside out, you can find just about anything on Mindbody.io! We’ve put together a list of some of our *fave* salons and spas in a few major metro areas.

Lash extensions

From the Mindbody Wellness Index, we found that 45% of women and 24% of men want to try lash extensions. Lucky for them, there are plenty of wonderful salons to choose from. Save yourself a little time in the morning, ditch the expensive mascara, and head out of your house knowing you *actually* woke up like this. Or, if you want to keep your natural lashes but throw out the curler, try a lash lift for 6-8 weeks of curly goodness.

Blowout/hairstyling

The ever-popular blowout is still trending this year, because let’s face it—we just can’t do our own hair as beautifully as the stylists do it. If you want to save time before work, need to look your best for an event, or just feel like treating yourself, check out these salons that offer blowouts and hairstyling! And if you want a little extra something special, add a Power Shot to your blowout at Mane & Mani for a custom deep conditioning treatment.

Massage

There’s nothing like a good massage to relieve some built-up tension. We often carry our stress not just in our minds, but in our bodies as well. Treating ourselves to a massage every now and then can help us rejuvenate and get aligned. There are all sorts of different massage types, so be sure to check the menu at each place and talk to your massage therapist to find out which one is right for you! One of our favorites is the Arvigo Abdominal Massage at Myo in Austin to help with cramps, digestive issues, IBS, and more.

How to Be Intentional with Your Workout: Tips from The Dailey Method

Fitness
Barre
Cycling

The intentions we set in our daily lives are often methods for healing wounds, whether they’re self-inflicted or have been passed down to us by others. Developing a conscious practice to get rid of negative thoughts or feelings we’re holding onto can help us move in a more positive direction toward letting go, healing, and being present. 

Moving intentionally within our bodies allows us to fully notice how they feel so we can acknowledge and target the right areas. Some days we struggle to work hard enough while others, we push ourselves too hard! We do this both in class and in other areas of our life. It's important to remember to understand our bodies’ rhythms or fatigue while making space for our humanness, feelings, or need to be vulnerable.  

Here are a few simple guidelines for following intentions during your workout:

Be intentional about the way you set up each exercise.  

Remember that just like in life, taking a moment to pause and build the appropriate foundation will undoubtedly support you to be 100% successful on your journey. At The Dailey Method, we refer to this kind of mindful exercise as a “meditation in movement” and begin our practice with intentions. During the warmup, instructors encourage students to set an intention for their workout, even if it’s just a focus on breath, and then revisit it during their final resting pose. Often, we associate these goals with our Word of the Month, a specific theme to help guide our practice each month. But there are so many intentions to choose from—moving with your breath, moving with grace, forgiving yourself, shining your light out, the options are limitless, and you can alter them each day depending on where you are right here and right now. 

“Personally, I am so grateful for this process being part of my Dailey practice,” says Jill Dailey, founder of The Dailey Method. “It is a built-in opportunity for me to stay in the present, and when I wander (because of course I do!) a tool to guide my presence back to the here and now.”

Pause when it’s tough. 

When the workout gets challenging or you feel like giving up at any point during class, set an intention to pause and remember the fact that we are all on this same path, doing this exercise together. You have all the tools you need to be successful—even if it means taking a quick rest or resetting your alignment! Don’t compare yourself to others; just focus on yourself and your goals for the workout. Remember why you’re there.

Carry your intentions with you.  

As you leave class, move with deliberation and show up at your next appointment, event, family gathering, or grocery shopping excursion as the greatest version of you. You just rocked your class and brought effort, strength, perseverance, and commitment. Acknowledge that and bring it with you. Don't forget about the intentions you set during class; figure out how you can apply them to other areas of your life! 

Make moving with intention part of your next workout by taking a class at The Dailey Method near you today!
