#WellnessWednesday & #BirthdayDeals @ExhaleSpa #MidtownAtl #ManiPedi Bar ! 

August is a busy month for us here at SobeSavvy.com..not only is #outandaboutAva turning 5, but I am celebrating my birthday today! Birthdays are a special time of year to celebrate and I like to celebrate myself by doing something for my health. Getting pampered is the ideal birthday gift for me. So to get the party started , I scheduled a Luxe Spa manicure and pedicure at Exhale Spa in Midtown Atlanta.

Located at 1065 Peachtree St, Atlanta, GA inside the Loews Hotel, this location is the only one in Atlanta that has a mani-pedi bar! I arrived early to make sure to relax in the zen lounge (they have warm neck pillows and tea available to help you restore*detox*revive.) 

Nail Tech, Cassandra has been with Exhale for 5 years and was very good at what she does. After selecting my nail polish (a vegan polish called Pink Perfection) and choosing my scrub from a choice of 4 fragrances, I was escorted to the pedicure area. It’s in a very comfortable setting complete with a flat screen tv and leather massage chairs. Besides the quality products used what makes this a luxe experience is the hot stone massage on my legs and feet! It was unlike any mani-pedi experience I’ve ever had. 

Savvy Tip: Exhale has a very special birthday offer during your birthday month. You can enjoy 50% of a 60 minute spa therapy and 20% off your next purchase at their wellbeing boutique. Use Promo code: bday 50 and book your appointment here !

When considering a gift to yourself or someone else,  give the gift of wellness from Exhale! They offer a unique balance of fitness classes and spa therapies – unlike any other gym or spa I’ve been to! They offer a wide variety of spa therapies — from customizable facials and relaxing massages to healing acupuncture and so much more — they truly offer everything you could need for a restorative and rejuvenating day at the spa. Their huge variety of fitness classes — with everything from barre to cardio to yoga — all emphasize the core, transforming your body and balancing your mind. Think of it as your one-stop fitness shop. I shared at the beginning of the year, why I love to come to Exhale. Read more here .

Overall, Exhale just makes me feel amazing, and I think you’ll love it too!

#TransformationTuesday, On #EarthDay Transform your Mind and Treat yourself to a Facial @ExhaleSpa

image

Earth Day 2016 happens this Friday April 22. It is a world wide movement to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Just as the earth needs protection from the environment so does your skin!

Exhale offers environmentally-friendly facials to help reduce the effects pollution and the sun may have on your skin. Did you know our skin is the perfect target for pollution because it easily absorbs environmental pollutants? We are exposed day after day to all manner of environmental pollutants from smoke to chemicals, so it’s very important to protect it and cleaning and moisturizing your face is one of the best ways to do that.
image

I tried the True Facial as per the website: ” Tried and true! A thorough cleansing and application of a custom enzyme exfoliation perfectly preps the skin for complexion detox. Careful extractions follow — made as painless as possible by our skilled estheticians — and then a soothing mask, selected specifically for your skin type is applied. Your face will feel refreshed and restored, and you’ll feel ready to face the day. It’s “truly” amazing!” Take advantage of their special offer to try a facial plus massage for just $199.00 !

My facial experience was beyond amazing thanks to esthetician, Audrey Thorne who works at the Miami/South Beach location. I visited an Exhale in Atlanta,GA earlier this year (read here) as I do enjoy the variety of classes and quality services offered but never had a facial. I thought Audrey provided an in-depth cleaning as well as gave valuable customized information about how to care for my skin. Products recommended for me and available for sale at Exhale were the Warm Honey Cleanser , Pro Heal Serum and SPF 30 .

Prior to my facial, I enjoyed a 9am meditation class on the rooftop, also known as the exhale zen terrace, of the oceanfront St. Moritz building of Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Alessandra Cornet, Founder of Hardcore Meditation, guided us thru an analytical meditation 30 minute class to benefit the mind and body! She also provided us with handouts full of information about meditation techniques. Meditation simply involves a process of transforming yourself and your thoughts. The focus of the class is to release tensions and set your intentions, deepen the breath, increase concentration, relax and rejuvenate the soul. Anyone can benefit from meditation because it is an energy-saving practice in which you can take a moment to center yourself while connecting with the universe.

I felt totally relaxed after my meditation class and facial at Exhale and recommend anyone visiting or local to visit this spa. If you are in Miami this Friday April 22, set your intentions at this Exhale Earth Day event
Namaste!

Rise and #Yoga ! @ExhaleSpa #SouthBeach #Miami @Loews_Hotels ~ Recap by #SobeSavvy

image

I am usually awakened by my three yr old daughter, or South Beachers coming in from a night out but on Wednesday October 15, I took the opportunity to greet the rising sun by experiencing Exhale Spa’s athletic and mindful yoga class. Exhale is the leading lifestyle brand in spa and wellness and known for their custom-created classes geared towards reviving and restoring the mind and body. That was exactly what I needed! 

Exhale South Beach is located at Loews Miami Beach Hotel, 1601 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Fl 33139. I selected their Sunrise Exhale Vinyasa Yoga class, which was held on the outdoor terrace of the St. Moritz Building. It was the perfect location to let the restoration of the ocean and its breeze carry me thru the practice.

Led by Amy Steiner, this class wakes up your body and mind with a fluid yoga practice and breath-based meditation, setting the tone for a great day ahead. Per the website,  www.exhalespa.com ,

This class offers a flowing practice appealing to students who have yoga experience and are comfortable with yoga postures and sun salutations. Exhale Vinyasa Flow integrates breath and movement, inner and outer alignment, and strength and flexibility. Class is accompanied by music for a rejuvenating and balancing effect.

The class was intimate and allowed for the instructor to provide any necessary corrections that were needed. No matter your faith or fitness, yoga is for everybody! I felt very comfortable in the environment and knew I was in good guided hands. Anyone taking a class has the opportunity to use the amenities at Exhale, but alas I had to return to my 3yr old and start our day. But at least I was going into my day with a different perspective and more calming approach thanks to Exhale! 

Enjoy these pictures I was able to take prior to getting my warrior pose on! Namaste !
