Gone are the days (well, mostly gone) when summer vacations meant drinking as many frozen drinks as possible. These days, a successful week in the Hamptons not only includes a green juice (or ten) and some time on the beach, but it also includes a yoga retreat, meditation class, dance-off, and microcurrent facial. Oh, and a great shopping session. Read on for our list of the best of health and wellness in the Hamptons this summer, from special pop-ups to local mainstays.
1. SB Skin — East Hampton Pop-Up
Shamara Bondaroff is the new it girl for microcurrent, and she’s invading the Hamptons this August with a pop-up in East Hampton. Give your skin a break from the sun and refresh with a microcurrent facial treatment at SB Skin. Referred to as “pilates for your face,” the treatment involves a mild electrical current to stimulate skin and facial muscles, promote healing and increase collagen and elastin production. We suggest a series, but even just one treatment with Shamara is going to leave you glowing and, purportedly, looking 5-7 years younger. Sign me up, please! Mention Charlotte’s Book for priority booking.

2. AKT InMotion — Hamptons Intensive
From Friday, July 22 to Monday, July 25, reboot your summer with Anna Kaiser’s East Hampton Intensive. When Anna Kaiser says intensive, you better believe her.

While this retreat is sold out already (after we alerted our CB readers via newsletter), you can still buy day passes. Nurture and align mind, body, and spirit in a peaceful oceanside setting with yoga and meditation, chakra and aura cleansings, farm-to-table food and drink, and not to mention, amazing company. The retreat takes place between July 20 – July 25. It’s hosted by shaman Alyson Charles and yogi Fern Olivia.
Email [email protected] for more information.
4. Knockout Beauty — Non-Toxic, Ethically-Sourced Beauty Pop-Up
After a long day in the sun or a good sweat sesh, it’s important to pamper your body and skin. And what better way to do that than replenishing it with clean, natural, nutrient-rich ingredients? Stock up on all kinds of body- and skin-care goodies at Knockout Beauty, a pop-up boutique featuring non-toxic, ethically-sourced beauty products from brands such as Vintner’s Daughter, Lake and Skye, and Kahina Giving Beauty.
Knockout Beauty, 2400 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton, NY 11932. Open June 11 – Labor Day.
5. Sweaty Betty — Activewear Pop-Up
In pursuit of workout-minded Hamptonites, the British activewear brand Sweaty Betty will open its first pop-up store July 14 in East Hampton. Located in the heart of East Hampton, Sweaty Betty’s first pop-up shop in the Hamptons will be open until early September. Of course it will feature active wear, but there will also be a lounge area to recharge. It’s also across the street from Soul Cycle and a block away from Tracy Anderson so you can work out literally right after you buy your new gear. In addition to workout gear they will have swimsuits, wetsuits, summer sneakers, and weekend tote bags.
Sweaty Betty Pop-Up, 51 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, NY, 11937. Open July 14 – September 5, M-W, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., TH-SA 10 a.m.-7 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

6. Erika Bloom Pilates Plus — Perennial Pilates Favorite
This is one of our favorite, well-established pilates studios (pictured in our feature image). Erika Bloom takes a holistic approach to health with her pilates method, which features custom sequences tailored to your specific goal and focused more on correcting imbalances and less on strengthening already dominate muscle groups. If you’re looking for highly personalized training that will yield body-changing results, Erika Bloom is worth a visit. Services also include on-site private pilates, yoga, rolfing, and acupuncture in the comforts of your own home.
