Moms day out – alone? Imagine a day all to yourself; a glorious, child-free, mom-only day and you get to decide what you want to do and when you want to do it. The dream could come true and here are some amazing ways to spend that incredible day in Vancouver.
Four ways to spend a mom’s day our alone in Vancouver
Start your solo day off with yoga on the beach. Lululemon is hosting Summer Wellness Sessions every Saturday this summer at English Bay Beach Park. The free 45 minute yoga class is followed by a 15 minute wellness session, like meditation. Make sure you register in advance. #bestlife
Wander through the Vancouver Art Gallery and get lost in Claude Monet’s Secret Garden. The exhibition, which is on display until October, has 38 paintings spanning the course of Monet’s long career. All the pieces are from the collection of the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris and the Vancouver showing will be the only presentation of the exhibition in North America. Then you can grab a coffee and snack at the Gallery Café while you look through everything you picked up at the Gallery Store.
For some rest and relaxation, head to Pure Float on Howe Street. First try out the NeuroSpa sound therapy chairs then head to your private float room. You can turn the starlight ceiling and under water lights off, or leave them on and gaze at the stars as you’re floating. The stars, the music, the weightlessness of your body floating in the water… it will be one of the most relaxing things you’ve experienced in years!
Finish off your day with a delicious meal at Melu Juice & Health Bar. Try one of the incredible cold pressed juices (like Black Magic with activated bamboo charcoal, cayenne, lemon, Himalayan pink salt, agave and pure filtered water) with a salad (maybe the Big Buddha Salad) or one of their Overnight Oatmeals or Chia Puddings.
