Banya Spa & Bathhouse

An Immersive Social, Bathing, & Dining Experience.

The Banya’s owner and local Hotelier, Brenden Lawless, wanted to breathe new life into the space while preserving the original building. His strong local footholds, business acumen, and appreciation for old-world style have allowed him to bring this spectacular concept to fruition. The Bathhouse features a lap pool, two hot mineral pools, a wood-fired sauna, a steam room and a cold plunge. There are 5 massage treatment rooms and a rooftop sundeck for post-treatment relaxation.

Yoga & Pilates

Creature Yoga

Get ready to step into a beautiful community, a clear mind, and a vibrant body. Creature Yoga was manifested through two beautiful souls and yoginis, Bess Prescott and Tahl Rinsky. Now, with two studios and over 50 classes a week, Creature Yoga is home to a diverse range of wise and kind teachers. Offering classes in dynamic Vinyasa to link breath and movement as well as restorative Yin, great for releasing physical and mental tension through gentle poses, props and massage balls. Yang to Yin combines the two styles, and Slow Flow uses modified poses and a chilled slower pace for beginners. Sign in online, and drop in for one class, or a whole week. You’ll find a new steadiness, a new perspective, a new understanding to take with you – wherever you go. Suited to all levels.


If you like it hot, try this hatha based style of yoga. Heat Yoga is completed in a room heated to 38 degrees. The heat helps warm your muscles, allowing a greater range of motion and reduced risk of injury, as well as helping your body burn fat more easily. For a hard work out of the body and mind, try Vinyasa Flow in 60 or 90-minute sessions. Heat Yoga is a combination of exercise, therapy healing, strengthening the body and calming the mind. Suited to all levels.
