www.theredcarpethollywood.com
The red carpet “ROYAL” tradition dates back as far as 485
BC, when rolling out the red carpet was a special welcome
reserved for kings and queens. In 1922, The red carpet “Holly-
wood” tradition was born. It has since become the symbol for
glamour and glitz, beauty and bliss. The red carpet’s grand run-
way is that magical place where movie stars, celebrities and fans
come together in a royal celebration. At The Red Carpet Holly-
wood Beauty and Health SPAcility, we also celebrate the won-
derful world of entertainment. However, we believe that being
HEALTHY and HAPPY is the most magical, if not the most heav-
enly, place on earth. You will find our SPAcility to be welcoming,
comforting and friendly. Yes, we are quite conventional when it
comes to pampering and caring for our guests. True, many of
our health treatments and beauty services are based on the gifts
of nature and the ideals of ancient wisdom. Nevertheless, sci-
ence has provided us with effective, technologically advanced
products and state-of-the-art equipment (administered by our
knowledgeable and skilled staff) to assist you in achieving your
relaxation, wellness and aesthetic goals. This full service Beauty
and Health SPAcility provides a range of services, such as Body
Masks, Colon Hydrotherapy, Botox and Restylane and Cus-
tomized Weight Loss programs. Ultimately, in a city rich with
day spas, medical spas and natural health centers, the Red Car-
pet Hollywood Beauty Health & Med SPAcility is elevating The
Los Angeles spa scene to a new level with its completely innova-
tive concept and unparalleled level of credibility.

YAS YOGA & SPINNING
CENTER
1101 Abbott Kinney Blvd., Venice
(888) YAS-WEAR G www.go2yas.com
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to try yoga, but you’re
a little intimidated, then Kimberly Fowler may be the perfect anti-
guru for you. “I’ve gone to yoga classes where the instructor was
wrapping their foot around their head and I just couldn’t relate,”
says Fowler, a former lawyer, tri-athlete and founder of YAS Yoga &
Spinning® Center located on Abbot Kinney in Venice.
Fowler was introduced to yoga by accident. In 1982, she was
struck by a car while competing in a bike race, leaving her
severely injured. A physical therapist introduced Kimberly to
Iyengar yoga, and the practice helped her heal and realign her
body. Then, in 1983, doctors diagnosed her with terminal brain
cancer. Through the power of yoga and sheer determination,
Kimberly overcame the impossible and survived. “Practicing
yoga while battling cancer taught me the importance of balanc-
ing strength with flexibility.”
Kimberly decided to give up her law practice and turn her pas-
sions into business, which led to the inception of YAS and YOGA
for ATHLETES®. With “No Chanting, No Granola, No Sanskrit”
as her tagline, Kimberly created YOGA for ATHLETES® as a prac-
tice which combines various yoga elements while promoting
injury prevention and enhancing athletic performance. Her
hybrid style of bringing yoga into the athletic world led her to an
amazing partnership with Nike naming her their official Yoga Ath-
lete. She is also being touted in the press as ‘The New Face of Mod-
ern Yoga.’
Her “signature YAS class” combines 30 minutes of Spin-
ning® followed by 30 minutes of yoga – perfect for beginners.
“My goal is to make a style of yoga that is accessible to every-
one,” says Fowler. Men love it, beginners don’t feel intimidated,
and students find Kimberly’s “tough love” style the perfect
blend of a total body workout with relaxation.
The future seems limitless for this “yoga powerhouse.” Plans
include worldwide YAS franchises, books and more DVDs. In addi-
tion, she will continue to
expand her successful line of
clothing, YAS WEAR, which
includes the prefect cross
training and lifestyle basics,
worn by some of Hollywood’s
hottest celebrities. All prod-
ucts can be found at YAS and
online at www.go2yas.com.
Interested in experiencing
YAS? Kimberly has provided a
complimentary class pass and
also a coupon for 20% off YAS
WEAR, which you can find in
the middle of this magazine.
She hopes to see you all at YAS
in 2007!

Good Morning Kimberly,
"I completed your DVD this morning. WOW! Thank you Thank you Thank you. What a FAB-
ULOUS program!! It is now my favorite. It was challenging, SAFE and so SMOOTH!!! One
of the toughest things to find is a yoga or alternative fitness program that has smooth,
common sense, body challenging and safe transitioning/sequencing...yours is superior.
Thank you for being such an inspiration and contribution. All the best to you."

Kimberly,
"My name is Mark Thomas and I am a former international professional rugby player and
world champion bobsledder. I started Yoga for Athletes
®
two years ago and quite simply
it changed my life. No more lower back pain, hamstring tightness or stiffness, it even helps
relieve the stress of work. My flexibility began to improve and I only wish I had discovered
yoga sooner when I was playing. I would encourage anyone competing seriously in what-
ever sport to incorporate it into their schedule. The benefits are enormous."
Mark T - United Kingdom
Hello Kimberly,
"You are freakin' amazing girl! I just had to tell you how inspired I was from your story and
web site. I love your 'cut to the chase approach', that is my feelings EXACTLY. You are one
strong woman, from the inside out! WOW. I am ordering your DVD and the skull and cross

Infrared Light – plus tissue mobilization to safely and effectively re-
contour skin’s surface. The synergy of these three components makes
VelaSmooth™ the superior medical cellulite solution. Using light
energy, it heats up the skin, then extracts the fatty tissue and mas-
sages it out, thus shrinking the fat chambers and reducing the wrin-
kle of your skin. VelaSmooth™ penetrates deep enough into the adi-
pose tissue to effectively treat cellulite.
It is recommended that patients schedule 10-12 treatments, two
treatments a week. Treatments last about 60 minutes.

Med Spa Surgery

LightSheer Diode Laser —the world's most advanced treatment for
effective removal of unwanted hair. There is great news for men and
women who want to get rid of excess hair. Hair transplant surgery has
undergone a recent revolution. Medical hair restoration involves using
small grafts of naturally occurring hair bundles placed very closely and
in large numbers. These grafts are obtained by dissecting the donor
scalp under the stereoscopic dissecting microscope. During hair trans-
plant surgery, the surgeon implants grafts with small incisions into the
recipient scalp. When grown out, the hair grafts produce the most nat-
ural result possible of any surgical technique. Our technology also helps
create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments, you can see a
significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY “COLONIC”
Colon Hydrotherapy “Colonic” is a safe, effective and pleasant method for cleansing the colon
of waste material by repeated gentle flushing of water. Hydrotherapy cleanses and dilutes the
toxic load in the colon resulting in a reduced burden on the liver, pancreas, gall bladder and
spleen. As a result of lowering the body's total levels of toxicity, all other eliminative organs of
the body experience a rejuvenating and detoxifying effect which assists in restoring
internal balance, clearer complexion, flatter stomach, more energy, improved sex drive, bet-
ter sleep and overall wellness.
