Happy Holidays Bar Patrons,
There is just so much to be thankful for this time of year, and as we approach the holiday season, we at The Bar couldn’t be happier to have YOU as our client! Thank you for all of your dedication. Read on for our end of year news.
December Client of the Month
Janet Lynn has been attending the studio regularly since November 2016! A year ago she could not put her leg up on the barre during our stretches, but today she can! She is also celebrating her 72nd birthday this December. Way to go Janet!
"Hi Everyone,What an honor to be asked to share a little about myself with all of you!I am a fairly recent transplant to the mountains. I moved here from Florida about 3 years ago to be with my son and I am really glad I did! I wasn’t sure I could take the cold or drive in snow but so far so good. In fact, I found I love the changing seasons and am blown away by the beauty that surrounds us here in Tahoe. I have a super job here in the city. In fact it was my office co-workers who suggested I try the Bar and I have been here ever since!I am happy to say I have just celebrated my 1 year Anniversary here at the Tahoe Bar Studio AND I was finally able to get my leg up on the barre! Yay!!
In my “off” time I enjoy cooking, reading, and traveling when I can. I also love to snuggle with my doggie on these dark and chilly nights!December is my birthday month and thanks to the dedicated, caring and talented Bar teachers I continue to look forward to be active and healthy for hopefully many more years to come. I would also like to give a big shout out to my classmates who smiles and kindness warms my heart and makes me feel so welcome! Thank you all!!"
Happy, Happy Holiday News from The Bar!
Have you noticed that Emily looks a little different lately? Probably not because she’s such a skinny-mini. . . but this pretty lady is expecting a little boy at the end of April 2018! We are so excited for you, Em!
On top of that,
Thea and Brian have gotten engaged! They are planning a fall 2018 wedding. Congrats to the two of you!

Healthy Holiday Tip from Jess our Nutritionist
Tis the season for egg nog, carols, evenings by the fire, sparkling lights, the beauty of freshly fallen snow, loved ones near, memories dear, and many festive celebrations. This holiday season enjoy grandma's frosted sugar cookies and your bestie's white chocolate peppermint bark, but make sure to also enjoy an abundance of seasonal produce in a variety of fun, vibrant colors.
December's heath tip: Commit to bringing a whole food, plant-based dish to every celebration you attend.
I share one of my very faves from Cookie and Kate below. This festive pomegranate guacamole takes 20 minutes max to prepare, leaving you enough time to put on your red lips and adorn your gifts with the perfect bow. And can we talk about the wow factor of its presentation?! Serve with whole wheat pita triangles!
Pomegranate is high in fiber, and an excellent source of vitamins C and K, enhancing iron absorption, aiding in the maintenance of strong,healthy bones and supporting our immune function in this chilly season. Adding this festive flare to a go-to favorite also provides you, and your loved ones, with the cancer protective power of phytochemicals and antioxidants. Get creative and have fun making substitutions, or adding additional nutrition powerhouses to other holiday favorites. May you eat well and be well.
Happy Holidays Beauties! Enjoy! Jess
