New York City- Holiday Style

Even with the cold wind blowing and the threat of snow looming, New York City is transformed into a delightful winter wonderland this time of year-- from the Holiday tree and ice skating at Rockefeller Center to the window displays at Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue, there are endless experiences to enjoy during the holiday season in New York City.
It’s a thrill-a-minute, high-energy city and to survive it, New Yorkers are masters at making relaxing rituals and urban sanctuaries part of their daily lives.  And as ironic as it sounds, the holiday season is an ideal time of year to seek out some solace on the busy streets of New York.

MySpaShop.com asked Allan Ishac, author of New York’s 50 Best Places to Find Peace and Quiet, to scour the city for the perfect antidotes to both inner and outer stress. He pointed out serene surprises like the New York Earth Room — a Soho loft filled with 280,000 pounds of topsoil where people go to meditate in loamy silence. And Yelo, a high-tech napping center with sleep pods shaped like honey hives!

Allan also took us to the blissful Chopra Center and Spa near Carnegie Hall, where sensual treatments like the Amara Clarifying Facial are coupled with free meditation classes. Along with a number of other specialty-themed day spas that are raising the “calm-quotient” and nurturing an entire city.
