I don’t know about you, but this winter is becoming a drag, fast. With the cold weather comes many things. Increased heating bills, frostbite, and the overwhelming sense of not feeling or looking our best. Luckily, Traverse City has got your back.
Are you still struggling to find ways to keep your body temperature at a normal level? Me too. So, get like me (or not, but that’s not cool) and go to Yen Yoga and Fitness on Front Street to attend a class. Your first class is always free and the friendly staff will help you find your way towards hot yoga, vinyasa, cycling, kettlebell or even xtend barre. Yoga mats are provided free on a first come first serve basis and are available for purchase within the Yen Yoga boutique.
So get on over there and work off those lingering holiday pounds in a spin class, or warm your body up and stretch out all that built up stress at hot yoga. You won’t be disappointed. Afterwards, I suggest grabbing a breakfast biscuit and smoothie across the street at Morsels.
After getting your aerobics in and a healthy breakfast, it’s crucial (yeah, crucial) that your next stop be to Venus Beauty, located next to Subway between Cass and Union. A one of a kind boutique that offers both high end makeup lines such as Bare Minerals, Smashbox and Stila, as well as unique gifts, skincare and jewelry.
Owner Susan Ruoff opened Venus 14 years ago with the concept to bring a sophisticated beauty boutique to Traverse City. A rock star mother of two, Susan juggles trips to New York and Chicago to find new products as well as offering event and wedding makeup services at the store. According to Susan, “Makeup has evolved to a level where there are no trends, only concepts and ideas in beauty. Individualism is what’s fashionable.”
The knowledgeable staff can help you find a perfect skincare routine, shade of foundation, or gift for someone special, or ya know, just a gift for yourself. We all need it.
So whether your body needs a little extra care, your makeup routine, or you just feel like treating yo’self, get out to Traverse City and stop by Yen Yoga and Venus beauty. Say hi to the friendly staff, support your community, and keep your winter hot.
