Seeking: Cures

On the 10th Anniversary of our much-loved Standard Spa, Miami Beach, we’re going all-in on CURES and bringing the holistic spirit of The Spa to the wider world.
The start of 2016 marked a big moment for The Standard as we celebrated the 10-Year Anniversary of The Standard Spa, Miami Beach. And while we don’t like to get too sappy about anniversaries, it felt like a moment

As anyone who has had an epiphany in our hamam, or soaked away the pain in our hydrotherapy heaven can tell you, living well and holistic healing are essential to the ethos (and charm) of our Miami haven. So going forward, we’re bringing a bit of that spirit to the rest of The Standard world with something called Standard CURES. 


• We kicked things off in January at The Standard, High Line with a Standard Talk called “Cheating Death” that was all about the futuristic and far-out CURES that could help us all live forever. 

• The innovative practitioners of The Path are currently leading weekly, guided meditation at The Standard, East Village Penthouse (Tuesdays, 7pm). 

• Renowned fitness expert and trainer-to-the-stars Nicole Winhoffer is teaching her NW Method at The Standard, High Line, Saturdays & Sundays. 

• Last but not least, IV drips, B12 shots, infrared healing, and cryogenic freezing are coming to The Standard, East Village, Sundays in April. Scroll all the way down to sign up to get the invite. 


Hermanos Coffee has taken up residence in the lobby of The Standard, Downtown LA (yasssss). 

• The holistic living expert Shiva Rose will lead tea and beauty workshops at The Standard, Hollywood.

• In March, The Standard, Downtown LA will host an immersive, Cures-themed experiential installation by LA artist Lisa Solberg


Our in-house experts of all things retail have CURE-ated their favorite holistic accoutrement from purveyors like Holy Smokes, Moon Juice, Species by the Thousands, and Herbivore. 


Here online, we’ll be exploring the wider world of CURES through our uniquely silly/sexy/serious Standard lens—from the cultural to the culinary, the physical to the philosophical...

• We’ll learn about the beautiful bounty of Texas bathing culture with our buddies at Bunkhouse
• We’ll have guides to the coolest (and weirdest) alternative wellness spots in New York and LA. 
• We'll chat with Erika Spring, musician (Au Revoir Simone, Summer Moon, solo artist) and Maha Rose healer about her Reiki practice.

To kick things off...
