Really good spa in Brooklyn
D’mai Urban Spa may be in Brooklyn, but it feels like a resort in Bali – the spa is a peaceful island in the midst of the bustling city. Guests walk by in their signature soft cotton dressing gowns and slippers. The dignified interior, including Feng Shui and cozy chaise longues, was also inspired by Indonesian wellness temples, and a pleasantly soothing soundscape of natural sounds flows from the well-hidden loudspeakers. Services include a sauna, massage, waxing, hair removal, manicure, and facial treatments, among others. In addition, only the best products such as Sonya Dakar or Dermalogica are used – Hollywood beauties such as Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by them.
Highlight: The new Kabana, a retreat in a tent that smells of chamomile, frankincense, and rosemary and offers massages on Javanese tables for couples. Founder Daniella Stromberg explains, “In Indonesia, outdoor massage is common. It’s a nice opportunity for couples to share a non-verbal level of intimacy together. I mean, if you’re going to a spa together, you can get a massage together.”

Adults Catch the Gymnastics Bug
Forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels, or somersaults on a trampoline: “Gymnastics engages all those little muscles in your shoulders, back, arms, and stomach that you thought didn’t exist.” Wise words from someone who needs to know. Peter Kormann was a former US gymnastics team coach and now works as an adult gymnastics instructor at the Field House at Chelsea Piers. The 1.5 hours with Kormann are so much fun that you 1) frolic around like a little kid in a physical education class and 2) don’t even notice how strenuous the workout is. Various courses for couch potatoes and fitness fanatics.

Bright colors and a wonderful mood
The expert: When Shobha Tummala, who grew up in India, came to the USA, she was quite surprised that special waxing methods hadn’t even made it to New York. That should change if you please.
Shobha now has a Harvard MBA and his own salon in SoHo: There is both beauty and fitness here, but the specialty is and remains the removal of annoying hair with perfect technology, caring encouragement, the highest hygienic standards, and a little rose water. Conclusion: Not such a painful “duty” for bikini wearers anymore.
