Beautiful Health is Naples’ answer to clean living. From healthy skincare and body care to aromatherapy, natural nail care, hair care, water purification and home cleaning products, all are hand-selected with one goal in mind: to promote a healthy lifestyle by incorporating natural ingredients instead of damaging chemicals. Beyond the beauty boutique, which stocks more than 70 different brands—all of which you can try in store—they also offer personalized health coaching, workshops, energy healing, wellness programs and skin treatments with their highly trained aestheticians.
“Peace signs over dollar signs” is the mantra behind Donation Yoga Naples, a yoga practice founded by director (and Naples native) Lauren Fox. She leads weekly sessions at a variety of locations around Naples, from the studio to the beach to Naples Beach Brewery, the Naples Zoo, The Bowl, Kunjani Craft Coffee & Gallery and Naples Outfitters. Lauren’s fun, uplifting and affordable asana yoga classes—designed for students of all skill levels—are made even better when you remember the donation aspect: Half of the proceeds from all classes are donated to local nonprofit organizations each month. Private, one-on-one sessions are also available.

Even better, their polish is non-toxic and fume-free, with not a drill, mask or whirlpool throne in sight.
