Columbia Association (CA) is excited to announce that The Still Point will be delivering holistic spa and integrative health services as part of CA’s new mind-body wellness retreat in Downtown Columbia.
The Still Point’s services will include massage therapy, holistic skin care, acupuncture, yoga therapy, life coaching and nutrition counseling. The focus of the mind-body wellness retreat will be on classes, activities and services that strengthen the body and contribute to overall wellness, according to Rob Goldman, vice president of Columbia Association.
The Still Point was selected from a group of candidates that responded to CA’s request for proposals.
“The Still Point rose to the top. They’re a top-notch company, and they share the same philosophies that CA does when it comes to great customer service and high-quality programs and services,” Goldman said.
The Still Point has locations in Clarksville and Takoma Park.
“We believe the new mind-body wellness retreat is an exciting and innovative concept for downtown Columbia,” said Tori Paide, co-owner of The Still Point along with Marla Peoples. “Marla and I are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with CA and bring more than seven years of experience running successful wellness spas in the Baltimore-D.C area to Columbia’s new wellness retreat.”
CA’s mind-body wellness retreat will be located on the lower level of the former Rouse Company headquarters, which will soon become a Whole Foods grocery store. CA plans to open the retreat in September 2014.
The retreat’s classes will include yoga, hot yoga, tai chi, qigong and pilates, which will be offered both in studios and in a group exercise pool. There will be a “wet wellness area” that will include a recreational pool, large hot tub, steam room, sauna, salt room and tropical shower. A 7,000-square-foot outdoor patio area overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi will provide relaxation areas as well as spaces for group exercise. There will be a KidSpace facility for the convenience of adults using the retreat. In addition, there will be a café with indoor and outdoor seating areas offering fresh, prepackaged food and drinks from Whole Foods.
