From the seasoned streets of Coconut Grove to the bustling boulevards of Miami Beach, the Breathe team has honed an Art Basel routine that marries cultural immersion with self-care. We’ve navigated the fair’s wonders and discovered how to maintain our best selves amidst the artistic whirlwind. Our headquarters may be in the Grove, but when Art Basel arrives, we set up camp in Miami Beach for the day. Here’s how we do it, with our expert local hacks to beat the traffic and optimize wellness.
Neighborhood(s): South Beach and the Convention Center
Our pro-tip for a seamless Art Basel? Secure a room at Faena Hotel, 1 Hotel or The Standard for one day. This becomes our base, a strategic retreat for quick trips to the Convention Center or other nearby fairs like Satellite or Aqua Miami. Between the art dives, we select from our wellness arsenal to rejuvenate and reflect.
Location: 3201 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140
We start at the Tierra Santa Healing House, nestled within the Faena Hotel. This sanctuary offers a sprawling hammam and body-healing rituals that ground us for the day ahead. The Wet Spa and Hammams curated by Agustina Caminos are not to be missed, providing a serene escape from the buzz of the fair.
Dr. Ivan’s Lifestyle Medicine IV Therapies have become a cornerstone of our recovery routine. The 1000ml Grander is a life-saver for staying hydrated and energized. And for those intensive Basel days, his house calls are a godsend—book early to guarantee a spot.
Anatomy in Sunset Harbor
Location: 1220 20th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
One of our our go-tos for contrast therapy. A session transitioning from the infrared sauna to the cold plunge is the ultimate reset button.
Location: 40 Island Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
The massages and holistic treatments are unparalleled. We often opt for the Hot Stone Massage to melt away any stress or the Detox Cleanse to rejuvenate after a long day of art perusing.

is our sanctuary for strength and soul, where classes like Booty Blast with Victoria Posner and Suspend with Tanner Kain keep us in peak form.
Location: 1835 Purdy Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
This location sets the pace with high-intensity workouts. Sammi Jay and Starr Hawkins lead sessions that leave us feeling victorious and ready for more art exploration.
Rumble Boxing in Miami Beach truly packs a punch when it comes to both workout intensity and electric atmosphere. It’s the place where the time melts away, and before you know it, you’ve pushed past what you thought were your limits—and you’ve had a blast doing it.
Elena, a dynamo of a trainer, brings a blend of New York hustle and Miami glow to each session. Her journey from Rumble devotee in Chelsea to headlining Miami’s Rumble stage is a testament to her passion for the sport and her decade-long expertise.
Location: 1827 Purdy Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Offers a chance to spar with the best, ensuring we’re fighting fit for every gallery round. You can also catch Starr “Baby Momma Fit” Hawkins leading sessions that will have your booty on point for Miami Art Week with these types of routines:

For Breathwork, Meditation, Pilates, or Yoga:
Location: 736 6th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
This is our Zen zone, where yoga and breathwork classes help us find our center amidst the chaos. Instructors like Rachel Lynn and Daniela Novati stand out for their exceptional guidance, leading classes that rejuvenate the spirit and recharge the body. With these two at the forefront, each session becomes a journey through the self, leaving practitioners feeling grounded and connected.
Location: 959 West Ave #13, Miami Beach, FL 33139
At Level One Lagree Pilates, we’ve found a workout that aligns perfectly with our needs for a high-impact, full-body session that complements the artistic stimulation of the week.
Adela and Jurgen Ampl’s classes at Level One is a testament to the power of an expertly guided Pilates experience. His deep knowledge ensures that every movement is performed with precision, focusing on correct body positioning and the principle of time under tension. The sessions are challenging, pushing you to your limits, but they’re the kind of good that has you walking away feeling accomplished and invigorated
