StyleHaus – Designing Style For Your House

Your home should reflect the very best version of you. The look of one’s house is an extension of one’s personality. Even if you don’t know what your style is exactly, Shirley will insipre individuality that makes you say, “that’s me.”

Your personal environment matters. The right space enhances outlook, inner peace and productivity. It can’t be easily measured or proven, but it’s instinctive.

Style and function co-exist beautifully. A room designed to be bulletproof can also be completely hip and stylish with the right fabrics, storage solutions, floor coverings and room dividers.

One can get a lot of style without a lot of money. The stylish and distinctive exists without the premium – one just needs to know where to go to find perfect item within budget – because it is always out there.

The Bar Method

October 23, 2007

The Bar Method™ exercise system creates a uniquely lean, firm, sculpted body by reshaping and elongating muscles while maintaining an intense pace that burns fat and increases stamina. The hour-long class is composed of eight or nine strengthening exercises followed by stretches. The strength work combines holding positions that use the body’s own weight with small, controlled moves that increase range of motion and stamina. Stretching is focused on the hips, chest and lower back to improve posture and body alignment. Students begin the class with free weights and push-ups, move to the bar to work their legs and abdominals, and finish on mats for more core work and stretching.


The Bar Method, located at the Bon Air Shopping Center in Greenbrae, has generously donated 30 days of unlimited classes for new students or 5 classes for existing students. ($100 value)
