There are so many spa options all over Maryland. For instance, you can take yoga with a  cat friend, or hang upside down in an aerial yoga session. Perhaps a "diamond facial" at National Harbor or a  trip to the Himalayan salt cave in Bethesda is more your cup of tea. Experiences await you throughout Maryland.  Here are just a few ideas...

1 Paws Love Yoga at the Humane Society

Practice yoga right next to cats at the Humane Society of Harford County’s shelter. After the class, participants can stay to make a craft for the felines.  Since yoga  helps improve balance, breathing, sense of self and overall health who better than cats to demonstrate?  And as far as friends go, the yoga cats are eager to find their new homes too.  More info...

9 Yoga on York – Try Aerial Yoga with Friends in Towson

Jayne Bernasconi developed “Aerial Yoga BT” blending ancient yoga with aerial arts. You will gently warm up and then slip into a soft fabric hammock.  The hammock allows for deep stretching, strengthening and release. The “art of inversion” - being upside down and decompressing the spine to open the vertebral column, helps with circulation, assists with the elimination of toxins and impurities and offers ways to stretch that would be impossible on the floor. Enjoy the fun with your friends.
