The EPIC Hotel and Residences in downtown Miami is home to the ultimate wellness destination – Exhale Spa. It’s a mind/body studio complete with spa therapy rooms, yoga classes, and a full schedule of Core Fusion classes.
Have you heard of Core Fusion? It’s a barre class that mixes stretching and strengthening exercises. My friend and Core Fusion instructor Natalie Vick, introduced me to the concept. I’ve tried a few classes and I must say it's a great workout.
One of the first things you notice when you enter the studio is the sweeping views of downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. Guests can also enjoy a Zen lounge and infrared sauna before and after taking classes or visiting the spa.
I caught up with Alexandra Shepherd, a Core Fusion instructor for the past three years. “It’s not just about the workout,” she said. “It’s also about the mind body connection.”
Alexandra teaches classes and gives private lessons.
If you go: Individual class sessions start at $25 and private classes start at $109. Visit Exhale Miami online or call (305) 423-3900. Rates at the EPIC Hotel start at $295 per night.
