When contemplating how to honor a friend’s birthday, I craved a departure from the fun, but somewhat predictable dinner and drinks evening. I wanted to bring balance to our time together by doing something decidedly different - something meaningful, active, and perhaps a little decadent. So, I booked a private salt cave yoga session, which included a lovely post-workout soiree, replete with Champagne, cupcakes, and other tasty treats. The restorative experience began upon entering the Crystal Cave. The massaging effect of several inches of course salt crystals underfoot, combined with the warm, rosy glow of the surrounding Himalayan salt blocks elicited a collective ahhh. Salt manager and yoga instructor extraordinaire, Chava, lead us through an invigorating and ultimately relaxing session, and, as a bonus, Salt owner, Pam McCaskey popped in and gave us a quick tutorial on the many healing benefits of Himalayan salt. From there, the group transitioned to a well-appointed, private lounge where we relaxed, noshed on a delectable spread, and of course, raised a glass to the birthday girl. As the evening wrapped, and everyone shopped the dozens of locally-made Himalayan salt products in the boutique, we came to a consensus: to book the cave again. Of the many options available - other yoga and healing classes, cave meditation sessions, and salt-infused massage and facial treatments - one of these will definitely be on our calendars.

If you still think that smudging refers to makeup blending and Himalayan pink salt is just a flavour enhancer, think again. We’re suddenly living in an alternative universe where healing with crystals and other New Age modalities is commonplace and even the Kardashians go deep.
