Forget all the “New Year, New You” hoopla. We believe you’re a rockstar just the way you are. But, if your 2020 goals include living your best life—whether that means tapping into your creative side, flexing new muscles, or treating yourself—Awesome Alpharetta has you covered. Nourish it all—mind, body, spirit, and soul while you’re here and embrace your best life.
Creative energy abounds
Living well means so much more than working up a good sweat or practicing mindfulness. Stir your creative soul through art, music, and theatre. From artistic experiences like Artrageous Potter and All Fired Up that give the opportunity to create a unique piece all your own to studio painting sessions at The Treehouse at Sis & Moon’s, the magic of artistic expression awaits. If you need further inspiration, you’ll find it in spades thanks to local exhibits like those on offer through the Downtown Alpharetta Arts Walking Tour, the Alpharetta Arts Center, and Chic Evolution in Art. Stimulate your senses at every turn in Alpharetta.
Ways to move
Exercise is a celebration of the body’s abilities, and we’re proud to present a number of ways to stretch, flex, and honor those miraculous muscles. Drop-in classes like Core57 and Club Pilates seek to tone and strengthen, while Title Boxing Club and Trapeze Yoga offer more niche ways to get your sweat on. Looking to take it outside? Alpharetta’s stunning parks boast trails that beg to be traversed on foot or by bike, and there’s never a shortage of free fitness classes at Avalon, Brooke Street Park and Wills Park Recreation Center during the spring and summer months. Tell yourself you’re up for the challenge of trying something new—then revel in your ability to step, stretch, pedal, or even soar out of your comfort zone.
Healthy options to replenish the body
Forget dry salads and plain ol’ blanched broccoli. Healthy food doesn’t have to be bland—and Alpharetta is home to all kinds of delicious, good-for-you foods. Discover flavor-packed fuel in the form of sippable cold-pressed juices and scoopable acai bowls at Vitality Bowls or enjoy a variety of seasonal fare and thoughtfully crafted beverages like Dr. Weil’s Wellness Shot or Health-Ade Kombucha at True Food Kitchen. If your resolutions include being a better citizen of the world, Secreto, South Main Kitchen, and the Alpharetta Farmers Market are all superb options for finding local, farm-fresh ingredients. Try that menu item you’ve been curious about—whether it’s beet juice, pitaya, or farro. Your body (especially those taste buds!) will thank you!
The self-care situation you deserve
Overall wellness requires rest and relaxation. Give yourself permission to get the heated stone therapy massage at Downtown Alpharetta’s Natural Body Spa or rejuvenate the skin you’re in with a photofacial at Dermani Medspa. Experience the nourishing properties of essential oils with a customized therapeutic massage at LaVida Massage of Alpharetta or a lavender-infused massage to promote a better night’s sleep at The Woodhouse Day Spa. From traditional spa mani/pedis to more nuanced wellness options like a seaweed sugar glow treatment, there are ample ways to honor the skin you’re in while visiting Alpharetta.
