A new year means a new you, so prepare to fulfill that champagne-induced resolution to embrace your wellness in 2017.
Yes, we remember.
Luckily, healthy living is simple in Santa Monica where wellness is not just an interest, but a way of life. Our coastal city has been an innovator in fitness, healthful dining, and mental well-being for decades, and today, there are more options than ever for enjoying California’s wellness capital.
Upon check-in, you are provided with a customized yoga mat for all your fitness needs. And each morning, you can enjoy a mango-papaya smoothie, egg white omelette, or one of many other nutritious dishes at Coast or Terrazza.
Just steps from your room, the fitness studio and the beach set the stage for high-impact fitness classes as well as low-impact yoga, meditation, and breathwork classes in the mornings – including both Body Works and Yoga Basics on Valentine’s Day. The nearby oceanfront bike path also follows a picturesque 8.5 miles of the PCH in Santa Monica.
In the afternoon, set out to explore the city, where you can find a seemingly endless lineup of organic, vegan, and raw food restaurants tucked between popular yoga studios and fitness centers (the most per capita in any city). We like True Food Kitchen, Golden Mean Café, Kye’s, and Urth Caffé to start.
And in the place where fitness trends are born, you can find any type of yoga from paddleboard to aerial as well as innovative circuit workouts like those of Orangetheory Fitness.
Add in the soothing ambiance of the nearby Pacific, and you have found the perspective you have been searching for in the new year.
