Eco-Friendly, Multidimensional Facility Inspires Wellness

 

BODY of Santa Fe is a center for yoga, tai chi and dance, a spa and a childcare center. It is also a clothing store, boutique and café. Located in the heart of the City Different (333 Cordova Rd.), BODY is known for its ethos of chemical-free living. Lorin Parrish founded BODY in 2004 on the premise of establishing a new paradigm of business: a community center that inspires and facilitates wellness. BODY Yoga School, a Vinyasa teacher-training program, began in 2012.

Pesticides commonly used in cotton production end up in air, water, soil and people. BODY sells organic cotton clothing. “The world is starting to realize that people can wear beautiful designs without subjecting our bodies and environments to the documented dangers of pesticides,” said Parrish. BODY Boutique carries products from companies that engage in fair-trade business practices, including men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories.

The BODY café, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, is known for its commitment to sustainable, organic selections of raw and vegan food as well as wheat-, dairy- and sugar-free meals. The café also offers fish and locally raised chicken and lamb, as well as organic wine, beer and sake, veggie cocktails and elixirs.

BODY has been voted by Santa Feans as the best yoga studio, restaurant for vegetarians and best place for a facial and massage. For more information, call 505.986.0362 or visit www.bodyofsantafe.com.
