Fly High! Aerial Yoga Now Offered at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
February 19, 2013 at 4:34 PM
You know you should be heading to the gym soon, right? You made some New Year's resolutions, and this is juuuuust about the time where you start getting a case of the "screw its". That's because you haven't found the right workout for you, honeylamb! But see, we have sacrificed and done the research for you and found something hella fun. They call it aerial yoga.
Here's the thing about aerial yoga: it's better than mat yoga. Not only do you get a better stretch (you use your body weight rather than muscles) but it's a crack up! In that Spiderman kinda way. And the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is one of the few places in the country that offers this class. So grab your yoga mats, people, we're going to Arizona.
The class launched in January (right when Willow Stream Spa unveiled its $60 million renovation) and is so popular, they have to turn people away. Talk about Burning Man syndrome. Thankfully they recently brought more instructors on board to expand classes. Guests who take aerial yoga will also have access to the resort's spa facilities. Fairmont Princess Scottsdale is the first resort in the US to bring Well & Being to life, basically a new program that combines health, wellness, nutrition, integrative medicine, fitness and advanced skincare together.
It's not all working out, though. There's definitely come-down time. The spa is massive at 44,000 square feet with a private outdoor pool and lounge, a complete water circuit (steam, sauna, inhalation room, relaxation room, hot/cold plunge pools, waterfalls) and everything else you would expect at a fancy spa.
So, renew that New Year's spirit and get thee to AZ..or at least find something comparable. We don't want to tell you how many days there are until bathing suit season. We are your friends, after all.
Rates around $499 a night.
