Miami Health & Beauty
Health & Beauty neighborhood
3806 NE 1 Ave., Design District
This relatively new space was founded by yogi, certified Jivamukti teacher, and licensed movement therapist Dawn B. Feinberg. There's a class here for everyone. You can sign up for the signature flow (think creative sequencing, chanting, and meditating), the convenient forty-five-minute offering that still packs in a workout, or the all-levels Sweet & Sweaty, which is a slower-paced but aptly named class. There is a class for littles, plus a Mysore Ashtanga practice, which takes place in a quiet room with individual instruction.

Sometimes the hotel gym can feel…well, like a hotel gym. Anatomy is arguably one of the finest gyms in America, and it luckily offers day passes. The space is filled with the latest equipment, a dynamic roster of classes, and an entire AstroTurf-covered roof terrace laden with gear (ropes and such) for outdoor exercise. The post-workout sanctuary, with its hot and cold plunge baths, eucalyptus-scented steam room, and sauna, is a godsend for tired muscles and aching bodies.
1874 West Ave., Bayshore
Atma in Sunset Harbor offers color, cuts, spray tans, manicures, pedicures, and, of course, blowouts. The place is clean and airy, with a pretty, monochrome mosaic floor and white marble-topped counters. It feels a little like you’re in the world's coolest powder room, and it would be easy to hang out for a few hours.
Bamford Haybarn Spa Miami
2341 Collins Ave., Mid-Beach
All of the treatments at this atmospheric, chic yet inviting spa inside 1 Hotel South Beach are guided by Ayurvedic principles and use the brand’s in-house line of organic skin care (the products are Soil Association–certified, which is the UK’s highest standard for organic beauty). Concentrated elixirs, lymphatic drainage techniques, oxygen and LED-light therapies, and the power of the aestheticians’ healing touch make the facials as glow-inducing as they are relaxing. We’re especially obsessed with the 24 Karat Gold treatment, a fifty-minute face massage that includes a nanogold-infused collagen treatment that leaves you firm and radiant. The spa’s locations in the UK and Brooklyn are just as deluxe—and sustainable.
The Miami Beach sand is packed down every morning so it’s an ideal surface for a morning jog, walk, or workout (you can actually run around without sinking in and feeling like your calves are on fire). Just off the sand, there’s also a boardwalk pathway for pedestrians and bikers that runs parallel to the water. If you don’t want to rent a bike (or have one), there are conveniently stationed Citi Bike stations that make spontaneous rides easy throughout the day.
3930 NE 2nd Ave., Design District
Four international hairstylists are the brains behind IGK, which stands for their combined surnames of Izquierdo (two of the stylists are married), Grenia, and Kusero. The Philippe Starck–designed space, with its chevron-pattern wood floors and sleek marble counters, is modern and clean. Most notably, the chairs are supremely comfortable (an important detail given that hair color can take hours). The blowouts are, however, super speedy, and these stylists can cut hair like no other. Booking is essential as the services at IGK are always in demand.
110 Washington Ave., South Beach
JetSet is the only studio in Miami that has Lagree Fitness Megaformers, which are Pilates-like machines that have gained a cult following in recent years. Unlike a lot of Pilates classes, JetSet sessions incorporate a fair amount of cardio with weight training and resistance-based body conditioning. It’s a relentless fifty-minute workout that’s not for the faint of heart—which is probably why it’s so addictive. There is another location in Miami Beach, plus outposts in Wynwood, Coral Gables, and North Miami.

The Betsy South Beach Rooftop Wellness Garden & Spa
1440 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach, FL
Outdoors on the gorgeous plant-flanked rooftop of the Betsy Hotel, this spa is absolute heaven. Retractable sails shade private cabanas, where treatments that harness the power of pure ingredients and salubrious fruit extracts are performed by skilled aestheticians. The Muse is a thorough detox with antioxidant-infused coconut milk, pore-tightening cucumber toner, and a corrective, glowifying mask made with blueberries and cocoa powder.
