When was the last time you had a crystal bowl cleansing ritual? How about a homeopathic physical or a healing session with roses? If you're in need of New Age healing practices, look no further than Centro Alaya. This lovely space in the Mixcoac neighborhood is one of the city's leaders for all types of alternative therapies, including yoga, meditation and immersive workshops on topics like self-love and letting go of trauma. You can even join regularly held guided retreats into a mountain convent. If you want to close the medicine cabinet and start feeling better from within, Alaya might be the place to begin. The offerings are extensive, so start slowly and go with what feels right to you.


A holistic health center offering homeopathy, yoga, meditation and self-care retreats.
