If the year has left you feeling a little burnt out, stressed and in need of a break, it’s time to blow out those cobwebs and adjust your gaze to events that are good for the mind, body and soul.
There’s plenty of things to do on the Sunshine Coast this summer, so swap your next cocktail session for a yoga class under the sea, or take on that fun run you’ve always drummed up an excuse not to do—it’s time your health and wellness jumped in the front seat.
Check Out The Coast’s Best Wellness Studios
Living on the Sunshine Coast, we’re inspired to take better care of ourselves—waking up early and taking a stroll along the beach or into the mountains, going for a swim, eating fresh and organic produce grown on our doorstep, or putting our health and wellbeing in the hands of the professionals. To help you on your wellness journey we’ve rounded up the best Sunshine Coast wellness studios, each a little different in approach and offering, but all with the intention to make you feel nothing less than fantastic, so you can live the life you’ve always dreamed about.
Get Summer Ready With These Sweaty Workouts
Leap into your healthiest self this summer, with our hit list of the Sunshine Coast’s best workouts. Whether it's jumping on a bike for a spin class, paddling down the river on a SUP or finding your Zen, there’s something to be said for getting your heart-rate up, the endorphins flowing and the toned abs, well, that’s just an added bonus.
Prepare For Festive Season With Help From These Sustainable Beauty Salons
We all love a good pamper at the salon. It’s the ideal opportunity to sit back and relax and let the worries of the world wash over you. But you don’t want your hair and beauty regime to come at the expense of the environment. Did you know the Australian hairdressing industry is responsible for sending more than one-million kilograms of aluminium foil to landfill every year? Not to mention the nasty chemicals being washed down the drain and penetrating your skin during colour sessions and treatments. Now it has never been easier to treat yourself while doing your part to help Mother Earth. We’ve shared the Sunshine Coast’s top sustainable salons, to make sure you’re in the right hands.
Yin & Gin At The Rooftop Bar
The perfect combination of naughty and nice in the lead up to Christmas, Yin & Gin brings together yoga and thirst-quenching alcoholic beverages for one session only. Held at The Rooftop Bar & Garden, overlooking Maroochydore, this wellness event is one of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast this December. Join in for a super-chilled, 90-minute deep stretch yin class, while you sip on gin cocktails, followed by more cocktails, sharing platters and a catch-up. Add to that those epic sunset views, and we can’t think of a better mid-week pick-me-up.
When: Wednesday 11 December, from 5.45pm to 8.45pm
Where: The Rooftop Bar & Garden, 8 Maroochydore Road, Maroochydore
