This hybrid spa and fitness chain has a cult following for its yoga-meets-Pilates Core Fusion classes (Cameron Diaz and Heidi Klum are fans), but we think its beautifully appointed “wellness boutiques”—present in all six Manhattan locations—are just as big a draw. At the Central Park South location in particular, there’s a well-curated assortment of jewelry, including vintage-inspired pieces from Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 ($60–$200) and Ettika blinged-out bracelets ($40–$60); affordable fashion-forward threads from lines like Free People ($40–$180) and BB Dakota ($40–$100); and accessories, such as insanely soft, eco-friendly Toggery burnout leggings ($50) and traditional Mexican blankets ($35) in bright tribal prints. You’ll also find products from the all-natural skin-care line G.R.N. ($10–$60), favored by Exhale’s spa technicians, plus the full range of Spa Ritual organic nail polishes ($12) used in the adjacent mani-pedi rooms.
