For many of us, long days at the office, stress, and errands can get in the way of a healthy lifestyle. So we often look at our vacations as a chance to hit the reset button and get back to our exercise and fitness regimens.

After all, there’s a lot to be said about the mind-body connection.
In Mexico City, many of the more upmarket neighbourhoods – particularly pricey Polanco – have a wide selection of spas and wellness centres to choose from, and more often than not they can be found hidden in the sleek hotels dotted around the city.
However, out of all the rejuvenating things to do in Mexico city – between the Mayan clay spas, temazcal sweat lodges, Mexican traditions and indigenous therapeutic treatments – they all fail in comparison to the world class standards, high quality personal service and competitive prices of the city’s modern-day programs and facilities.
Copious amounts of yoga classes allow visitors to practice strength and flexibility. Learn the art of breathing techniques, where physical and mental health become interrelated. Perform asanas, learn poses, self-defense techniques, meditation and participate in pilates workshops. And allow clients to choose from a wide range of traditional treatment options, incorporating the latest techniques and products. Including body and facial treatments, aromatherapy, massages, and hydrotherapy circuits which include wet and dry saunas, mixed-use jacuzzis and pressure showers.
Mexico City’s health and wellness boom has allowed these establishments to be placed among the city’s cultural and natural highlights. Right alongside the capital’s characteristic adrenaline-fueled paragliding adventures, increasingly popular Mexican food tours, and the ever-illuminating, and equally important, stories on the history of Mexico City.
