Between hitting the slopes and luxury shopping, Aspen's elite detox their mind and bodies at town's best wellness spots.
A recent addition to Aspen’s wellness scene, Shakti Shala offers a range of classes, from yoga and meditation to dance.
To owner Jayne Gottlieb, Shakti Shala is much more than just another Aspen yoga studio. For her, it’s a place “to create conscious community through movement and intelligent, edgy conversation—and sometimes yoga philosophy brings that out!” The name of the studio translates to “house of true empowerment” in Sanskrit, and the 40-plus classes per week—from restorative yoga to high-intensity interval training—serve not only to strengthen the body, but also the mind and spirit. The studio also hosts yoga teacher training and facilitates afternoon and multi-day retreats to exotic locales. 422 E. Cooper St., 970-925-1655
Arjuna, Aspen’s only hot yoga studio, offers a welcome reprieve from the winter chill. The studio offers traditional Bikram-style hot yoga, vinyasa flow, and restorative yoga. 517 E. Hopkins Ave., 970-948-1165
The club is in the midst of a major renovation, but members and guests still have access to the largest fitness and spa facility in Aspen, as well as more than 60 group fitness, Pilates, and yoga classes every week. 1300 Ute Ave., 970-925-8900
Remède, inside the St. Regis Residence Club, is undeniably the most luxurious spa experience in town. Book any treatment to hang in the oxygen lounge and steam caves before or after. 315 E. Dean St., 970-429-9038
This 7,000-square-foot spa at Viceroy Snowmass offers a host of signature rituals inspired by ancient Ute, Nordic, and Asian cultures, along with traditional massage, facial, and beautification journeys. 130 Wood Road, Snowmass, 970-923-8007
