Healthy City Guides: Santa Monica

Kye's Montana

1518 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403

This super health conscious burrito spot caters to the gluten free/sugar free/paleo/vegan crowd with food options for all. We are partial to their black bean brownie and macro kyerito which replaces the expected whole wheat wrap with nori or romaine lettuce. 

Bluemercury 

1402 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403

This skincare boutique carries hard to find brands like M-61 and R+Co, RMS and many more. The shop also offers skincare treatments with vitamin C, oxygen and glycolic peels. 

Sugaring LA

1304 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403

This boutique waxing studio upgrades hair removal by using the all natural method of a sugar and water based wax, with nothing else added. The benefits of this treatment include less frequent hair growth and minimal redness. 

Yogaworks

2215 Main St, Santa Monica, CA 90405

cult yoga studio with a number of locations nationwide. Our favorite is the Main street studio which happens to be the original and has one of the hardest workouts in the city. We recommend classes with Vinnie Marino, Krista Cahill and Mia Togo. Arrive extra early to snag a spot. 

Kreation Kafe

1023 Montana Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90403

This LA based juice bar and cafe chain is the perfect spot to grab breakfast or lunch after a workout at one of Montana Avenue's many studios. We love their giant selection of smoothies and juices with a middle eastern twist (think rose water infused cold pressed coffee sweetened with Israeli dates and turmeric infused coconut milk smoothies). 

Gloveworx

 1415 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90403

A state of the art boxing studio that combines boxing training with strength and conditioning. Clients can attend one on one sessions or group classes led by former heavyweight champions and professional fighters. 

Olive & June

 1426 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403

This Beverly Hills based nail studio recently opened its third location on Montana Avenue. We love their all natural nail polish selection from brands like Deborah Lippmann and Kure Bazaar. Their organic Tata Harper pedicure is not to be missed. 

Shape House 

1003 Broadway, Santa Monica, CA 90401

This modern day sweat lodge is the perfect spot to relax and unwind after an intense workout when your muscles are really craving some R&R. Or maybe you are feeling sluggish after a weekend of overindulging on junk food and one too many cocktails. Shape House will wrap you up in an infrared blanket for 55 minutes and make you sweat like never before, all while watching Netflix and cooling off with an organic tea and some orange slices post sweat. 

Alchemie Spa

2021 Main St, Suite B, Santa Monica, CA 90405

This all natural full service spa is your one stop shop for every wellness service from organic nail care to infrared saunas, deep tissue massages and organic facials infused with custom superfood blends.
