Ferris Bueller was right: Life moves pretty fast.
Slow down at Hamsa Chicago, a softly opened ayurvedic center in North Center.
Owner Monica Yearwood lives and breathes the lifestyle she teaches — one of clarity, balance, and rejuvenation. During an in-depth consultation, she targets your dosha (ayurvedic speak for body type) imbalances, then creates a custom program to follow (detoxifying teas, dietary enhancements, meditation, readings).
If you’re smart, book Yearwood for an Abhyanga session, a luxurious massage involving hot oil application in large strokes across the body. Bliss Therapy takes it up a notch with an herbal steam. Come January, the spa menu will offer a detoxification program.
Hamsa’s yoga classes are the first of their kind in the city, designed for specific doshas to enhance stability and strength.
For when you need a day off.
