By Mekita Rivas, VIDA editor and member
Ahh, Valentine’s Day. It’s a holiday that can torment single people by reminding them of their soloness, while also tormenting couples who aren’t sure what to do (or buy) to celebrate their significant others. Needless to say, the day can be filled with tons of unnecessary pressure! Fortunately, VIDA is here to help you make the most of your Valentine’s Day, no matter your current relationship status. Check out these five ways you can spend V-Day at VIDA!
Channel your inner om.
Practicing yoga with a partner can have numerous benefits, including improved levels of communication, deeper expressions of postures, and the encouragement of trust. At VIDA, we offer a variety of yoga classes taught by some of the best instructors in the District. Take a yoga class with your valentine, and let those good vibes flow!
Or take it up a notch.
If you’re looking for a more heart-pumping workout to do with your SO, check out VIDA’s intense indoor cycle classes! These cardio calorie shredders are led by instructors that infuse variety into the routine and their playlists. State-of-the-art Matrix IC7 bikes allow you to track your energy and exertion in real time using personalized color zones, so you and your partner can engage in a little friendly competition.
For the single folk out there, what better day than Valentine’s Day to engage in some self-love? After all, there’s nothing quite as empowering as looking and feeling your best just for the sake of it! Indulge in one of the many services offered at Aura Spa. Whether you splurge on a massage, facial, body wrap, or all of the above, you will definitely leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Be sure to spend some quality time in the steam and sauna rooms as well!
Let out some aggression.
Whether you’re going through a bad breakup or seeing hearts everywhere just makes you nauseous, rid yourself of frustration and other negative thoughts at the gym! Today is an especially great day to hit the weightlifting floor and pump some serious iron. You can also swing by Shiloh’s 5:30 p.m. kickboxing class at The Yards location to really work off some steam!
