I am very happy to share this new discovery with you since I am sure you will absolutely
Alive Geneva is a holistic center located in Eaux Vives in front of the Jet d’Eau. As soon as you enter you feel the zen; the place is very well illuminated by the ceiling-to-floor massive windows, the colors are grey, beige and white and everything feels spacious.
The center treats the body as a WHOLE and in order to do this they have different services available for all the clients:
I went there specifically for a personal training session. I wanted to 1) know what it was and 2) have a general vision on my current physical situation (in terms of training) and 3) learn new exercises I can practice at home or at the gym.
Jose, my coach, was super attentive to what I was expecting from the session. We talked for 5-10 minutes and then we started to “work-out” on the points I wanted to put emphasis on.
After 1 hour of
torture sport… LOL just kidding, it was actually not that bad. The movements were really made for me and what I wanted to work on. But still, afterwards I wanted my reward, I had totally deserved it right?
I recommend a personal training session for either people that already do an activity, but need a little push to reach their goals or someone that wants to start getting into shape!
SUPER FOOD Kitchen.
This is where my happy kid woke up and I was able to get my reward after the pain …
ALL their food is Vegan and most of it is Gluten free. All the desserts are RAW and on top of that SUPER instagramable don’t you think?
I had to make myself choose ONLY one... I mean, even after 1 hour of PT session I cannot eat 4 desserts (unfortunately). I choose the raw carrot cake, because it is one of my favorite desserts and I wanted to compare with the real thing.
There are a lot of differences between a traditional carrot cake and this one.. it is too obvious to list. But I was actually delighted by the taste, the texture and the portions! Portions are quite big, so either think of sharing or have it after a light meal.
The carrot cake was super yummy, with a tasty frosting on top and to accompany this I had a chestnut matcha latte! Simply perfect. This ended up being my dinner since after this I was no longer hungry LOL
YOGA & PILATES STUDIO.
This is also part of the physical body, but yoga & PILATES are also good for relaxation & calming. I personally have never done yoga… I know super weird, but there is something that blocks me from it. Not sure why, maybe some day I will try it.
However, I am a HUGE HUGE fan of Pilates. In Mexico, I did it all the time and in Geneva I started again like 1 year ago. It is such a good sport to strengthen your core and your inner muscles. I did not try the class at ALIVE, but I will soon, I will keep you updated.
Conscious Concept Store.
The boutique offers the best SUPER FOODS selected by “We Are Wild”. You will also find some trendy magazines, cook books etc.
I was so happy to see Sagana there, it is my favorite brand of Coconut Sugar. Remember when I made a recipe with their product?
Everything sold there is sustainable & fair trade! Good job guys!
Holistic Health Lab.
To close the holistic loop, they also provide life coaching sessions, nutrition advice, magnetism, bio-résonance & energetic treatments.
You can also relax with one of their classic massages or a pregnancy massage, Ko Bi Do facial, Access Bars, Aroma Touch or feet reflexology.
I loved the #vibe of this place and the options you have! And the way you can easily book your yoga and Pilates classes through their app 😉
