Tracy Anderson Method Tribeca
271 Church St., Tribeca
In a brand-new, three-floor space in Tribeca, you'll find Tracy Anderson's New York City empire: There are studios here, along with many of her apparatuses, where you can do your custom muscular structure workout or dance cardio. This location offers membership, pay per class, as well as private training sessions. If huffing it to the studio isn't an option, there's always the wallet-friendly live-streaming version wallet-friendly streaming option, where you can take classes from the comfort of your own living room. There's a second 6,000-square-foot location uptown on 59th Street housed in a former movie theater.
Shibui Spa
377 Greenwich St., Tribeca
It’s always an effort to sit up after a massage, but it’s nearly impossible to wrench yourself off the table after one of the transporting treatments at the onsen-modeled oasis that is The Greenwich Hotel’s Shibui Spa in Tribeca. The Japanese aesthetic—lanterns softly illuminate the heated pool in the main lounge area and embellish the treatment rooms, low-slung day beds, guests padding around in the best-looking Japanese Yukata robes—sets a tranquil, removed mood that’s instantly anxiety-dissolving. Prepare to be smoothed down in replenishing botanical oils that leave your skin a thousand times glowier than you’ve ever seen it. During the Drunken Lotus massage, essential oils are worked over every inch of your body, then tired muscles are stoked back to life as they’re enveloped in hot, sake-soaked towels. The seasonal aromatherapy bath soaks are over-the-top and can be added on to any treatment—think you (or you plus your better half, if you opt for the couples soak), in a tub, steeping in healing ginger-infused waters.
