Miami Health & Beauty

Health & Beauty neighborhood
Ahana Yoga
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.
Anatomy
1220 20th St., Bayshore
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.
Bamford Haybarn Spa Miami
2341 Collins Ave., Mid-Beach
Tucked inside the 1 Hotel Miami, the Bamford Haybarn Spa is an earthy oasis marked by hand-carved doors and branch shelving. Here, in the nine treatment rooms, Lady Carole Bamford—of Daylesford fame in the UK—applies her global wellness approach to the menu of treatments. Whether it’s a facial, massage, or body treatment, all are guided by Ayurvedic principles, using the brand’s in-house line of organic, natural skin care. Bonus: The herb-scented Bamford candles make wonderful gifts.
IGK
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.
JetSet
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.

Tierra Santa Healing House
3201 Collins Ave., Mid-Beach
The Faena Hotel's Tierra Santa is a burst of color: A rainbow-striped rug runs through the spa’s lobby, which is outfitted with bright Juan Gatti artwork and floral-printed poufs. Inspired by an array of South American (and some South Asian) healing traditions, Tierra Santa has a gorgeous Turkish-style hammam and offers a full wet spa experience (waterfall shower, herbal steam room, wet scrub, sauna, and ice parlor); many of the treatments include ritualistic wellness aspects. The Hammam Rose Ritual is one highlight: During the treatment, as you lie on top of a warm marble slab, a therapist will scrub your entire body for what is likely to be the most thorough exfoliation of your life. Following this, you’ll be covered in ridiculously soft foam and then a soothing clay and later treated to a massage. The Tree of Life Vibrations treatment takes place on a heated sand bed and incorporates handmade Himalayan singing bowls into another supremely relaxing massage. Other massage options are more conventional, as are the facials—the Triple Lift Advanced Facial concludes with the Remodeling Face Machine from French brand Biologique Recherche and seems to make miracles…
