This past Wednesday I was invited to a twilight yoga session at The Chase Park Plaza.
The Chase Park Plaza is a historic hotel and residence in the Central West End that includes restaurants, a movie theatre, special event space, bars, a pool deck and more! It is an incredible space with a cool history featuring tons of celebrities. As my friend Alli (my plus one for the night) said, “Every time I walk into The Chase I feel like a movie star!”
The fitness and wellness center, Sante, is about 8 years old and includes a smoothie bar, pro shop, 3 group exercise rooms with tons of classes all included in membership, a full cardio and weights room, great locker rooms with Aveda products in the showers, plus a spa! It has everything!
After a quick tour of the gym, we went to the rooftop deck (off the Starlight room for you locals) to drink smoothies and take pictures of the gorgeous view. The smoothies were the ones they make down in the gym, and they were so good. The chocolate mint one was basically a thin mint in smoothie form, but somehow they made it “skinny.” They also had the creamiest berry smoothie, and one with ground coffee beans in it that I would totally have for breakfast every morning.
The night was perfect. There was a slight breeze and a beautiful sunset that made the yoga practice so incredibly relaxing. One of the instructors from Sante led us through a gorgeous slow flow and I was in heaven the whole time. I also got some great ideas for my own classes – love that!
The 45 minute class ended with a blissful savasana just as it got dark. Afterward I got to chat with some of the marketing coordinators for Sante and The Chase. The woman running the marketing for the event happened to be my boss from an internship back in college — small world!! She told me that Sante has yoga, spinning, or pilates classes up on the rooftop at least once a month!! And we may even get to do a private SLU med event up there soon!
Sante and The Chase spoiled us with little gift bags as we left. Each of us gets a week pass to Sante which I cannot wait to use. I’m going to wait until I have a somewhat free week so I can really take advantages of the classes and maybe even the pool! We also got gift cards for 30 minute massages in the spa. WHAT!? The best!!!
