What are the best yoga wellness experiences in Santa Monica?

Santa Monica might be the yoga capital of California, offering just about every different type of yoga you can think of — from traditional practice to aerobic-fusion options.


For those who want more of a dance/yoga hybrid, with hip hop, rock, and pop music blaring throughout the session, Yoga Hop on Montana Avenue is where it’s at. The popular studio is known for blending the strengthening focus of yoga with the cardio boost of group dance.

CorePower Yoga

On Main Street in Santa Monica, CorePower Yoga is one of the local favorites. Rooted in traditional yoga practices, CorePower will help you focus on your form, while modernizing the yoga experience. Plus, CorePower is walking distance to many of Santa Monica’s hotels on Ocean Avenue.

Sweat Yoga

For heat-seeking sweat-soakers, Sweat Yoga on Arizona Avenue offers uber-intense 100-degree classes that loosen stiff joints, open up pores, and boost metabolism for a cleansing and detoxifying workout.

What are the best spa wellness experiences in Santa Monica?

Santa Monica is home to some of the most luxurious and unique full-service spas in the country.

Hotel Oceana Wellness Spa

Featuring Bottega Veneta bath products and customized spa treatments, the wellness spa at Hotel Oceana offers a unique take on spa services. While there is a spa menu, we encourage guests to customize their services for the ultimate spa experience. Note, the Hotel Oceana Wellness Spa is reserved for guests only.

Willow Spa

This humble little Zen paradise will pamper you with Thai-influenced techniques and treatments for total body rejuvenation. Enjoy a soothing cup of tea in one of Willow’s serene gardens while you get your nails done, or get blissed-out to the max with one of their famous hot stone massages while listening to the sound of trickling garden fountains.

What are the best meditation experiences in Santa Monica?

Meditation is part of a daily routine for many Santa Monica locals. Whether you’re a devout practitioner or a relative beginner, a guided class at a Santa Monica meditation studio can help you tune in, turn on, and destress.

Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation on 15th Street has made a name for itself in Santa Monica based largely on word-of-mouth testimony from its satisfied clientele. As the name suggests, this studio focuses entirely on transcendental meditation, and each student works closely with a certified instructor to design an individualized training plan.

Be Crystal Clear

This Eastern-influenced meditation studio is a favorite of Santa Monica’s awakened elite, due in part to the sheer number of techniques and trainings it offers. The cutting-edge studio caters to clientele both young and old, offering mindset coaching and directed therapy.
