Palo Santo Wellness Boutique opened two weeks ago at 1707 E. Passyunk Ave. in the former Jane’s Yarn Shoppe.
The space, which we first told you about in mid-March, offers yoga and fitness classes and services like massage, reiki and acupuncture, in addition to being a boutique selling jewelry, incense and more.
The Wellness Boutique is named after Palo Santo, which is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood.”
In addition to Cordua, there are a total of 12 other instructors who teach classes in the space. Classes include tai chi, Iron Maiden futurism, vigorous vinyasa, gentle yoga, Kundalini yoga and more. There are classes available for all skill levels. For new students, Palo Santo Wellness Boutique is offering two weeks of unlimited classes for just $25. After that, classes noon or earlier cost $10, while classes in the evening and on weekends cost $13.
In the boutique portion of the location, you will see various minerals, crystals and stones for sale, in addition to plants and incense. The main attraction in the boutique, however, is the handcrafted jewelry. The jewelry is made by a variety of artists both local to Philadelphia, as well as other located elsewhere in the country.
In the future, Palo Santo hopes to play host to a variety of workshops. These workshops will range from fitness workshops, to creative arts workshops. Another improvement that will be made to the shop in the future is the addition of more inventory, including more types of art like textiles and glasswork.
Classes are offered in the space seven days a week, but the boutique portion is closed on Mondays. The hours for the boutique are Tuesday through Thursday, 11 to 7; Friday and Saturday, 11 to 8; Sunday, 11 to 4. You can find more information about Palo Santo Wellness Boutique, including a schedule of their offered classes, on their website.
