250 Million Years In The Making
Our two Himalayan Salt Caves create a surreal environment to relax, recharge, and rejuvenate both body and mind. The cave walls and ceilings are made of 45 tons of backlit Jurassic-Age salt blocks and crystals, while the floor is covered with crushed salt. This ancient sea salt is laden with minerals, including magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium, all of which play a key role in our body’s health, function, and cellular communication. Visitors to our beautiful salt caves can relax in comfortable zero-gravity lounge chairs, or lie directly in the salt.
Salt Caves & Your Health
The air in the caves is infused with micro-salt particles that impart a therapeutic benefit when inhaled. Halotherapy, simply breathing in air saturated with salt particles, is known to be a natural and effective way to improve respiratory health. The healing atmosphere accompanied by soothing music is a natural way to enhance overall physical and mental health.
Traditional Therapeutic Salt Use
Historic records indicate that humans have long been using natural salt caves and mineral baths as places of healing and rejuvenation. In modern times, science has shown the health benefits of feeding your body pure and natural ingredients. Salt is known to have a vital biochemical role in our bodies for energy and cellular health.

We provide a considerable assortment of great yoga experiences through a number of class offerings (Flow, Stretch, and Gentle Yoga). Not only will you find yourself in an incredibly beautiful and unique environment, practicing yoga in Himalayan Salt is a more challenging practice. The Himalayan Salt is continually shifting underneath you causing your body to make small adjustments to maintain each pose. You use more of the muscles in your feet, legs, core, and arms. Cave yoga creates depth to your practice and enhances balance and breath.

With regular use, Himalayan Salt scrubs exfoliate and cleanse the skin from impurities, while the salt's minerals and negative ions easily penetrate the skin, producing a cleansing and detoxifying effect.
We bring you instructors that lead sound healing ceremonies, women's empowerment groups, dance and movement sessions, as well as other unique and transformative workshops. The air in the caves is saturated with micro particles of Himalayan Salt that are easily absorbed through the skin and deep into the lungs. The perfect place to escape, heal your body and refresh your mind.

Chava, the manager of Salt, meets me with a warm greeting, and we head to the entrance of the largest Himalayan salt cave in North America. “The largest? In all of North America?” I repeat back to her as if I’ve misheard.
Wednesday morning, and the bottom dropped out. Heartbreaking news came over the wire and the only way to emote is out if my eyeballs. Through silent tears, a reminder on my phone brought hope. Tonight, I would partake in "Sound Healing" with instructor Shane Chunephisal.
