Noho Health & Beauty

Establishment neighborhood
Ora Acupuncture Studio
9 E 4th St., Noho
Ora makes acupuncture (and cupping and facials) feel incredibly luxurious. The cozy brick and clean-lined marble interiors are punctuated by an impressive wall of shelves full of healing herbs and tonics. The 75 minute acupuncture facial starts with a health assessment and facial mapping, so the aesthetician can customize the facial, which always includes some combination of acupuncture, gua sha, microcurrent, lymphatic massage, and an adaptogenic tonic. You leave noticeably sculpted—and glowing from the inside out.
Jivamukti Yoga Center New York
841 Broadway, Noho
This OG yoga center has a bare-bones aesthetic—but the workout, not to mention the mental benefits, will blow your mind. There’s chanting, lectures, and vigorous asana practice in every class (most are “open”, meaning all levels, which is great for all but the newest beginner); every pose is held for five breaths, so you’ve got time to figure out what you’re doing. Beyond the fantastic, transformative yoga in the three large studios, there’s a vegan café, massages, and a boutique stocked with clean beauty all-stars, sustainable yogi fashion, and books. “The classes are packed because they’re so good,” says goop beauty director Jean Godfrey-June. “I am a functioning human being because of them!”
