Sometimes, we live such a busy lifestyle that we forget to make time for ourselves. Here are nine places in Ventura County Coast where you can dedicate some time to improve your health and wellness!
1. Ventura Pop Up Yoga
Breathe, stretch, and smile at Ventura Pop Up Yoga. Classes are affordable and donation based unless it is a pop up event. They do provide free “rental” mats if you’re new to yoga or running late to class. It is great for all levels and all ages (minors must be accompanied by an adult).
2. Massage Envy Oxnard
Treat yourself to a massage at Massage Envy, located in the Collection at Riverpark in Oxnard. A single massage session can relax your muscles and support the production of endorphins, both which help reduce daily stress. It can also help reinforce healthy and natural movements which can get your posture back on track. The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas. This causes new blood to flow in and old blood to flow out to promote circulation in the body.
3. Port Hueneme Beach
Take a few minutes to enjoy a sunrise or sunset at Port Hueneme Beach. In fact, this can be done at any beach! Feeling the cool breeze and listening to the crash of the ocean waves creates a relaxing setting and can help you feel peaceful while reducing stress.
4. Sun Kissed Yoga
Sun Kissed Yoga is a locally owned yoga studio located in beautiful Old Town Camarillo. Their mission is to create a strong yoga community in Camarillo by bringing people together. They offer a range of classes from a relaxing stretch class to a challenging and sweaty vinyasa flow. There are even special events such as bunny yoga, healing through breath, hula hoop, and more!
5. Ventura Float Center
Ventura Float Center is a sensory deprivation therapy and relaxation clinic located in Ventura. Sensory deprivation tanks cuts off all sources of sensory experience such as sound, sight, smell, and touch. Float tanks are filled with water that is almost the exact same temperature as the human body along with a high amount of epsom salt. The high amount of salts allow you to float at the water’s surface in complete silence and stillness. Some benefits from floating are alleviating muscle pain and tension, reduce anxiety and stress, soothe chronic pain, deepen meditation practices, and more.
