What began in 2007 as a 500-square-foot bare-bones yoga studio on Main Street Carbondale has since blossomed into a one-acre downtown sanctuary. True Nature Healing Arts, created by Deva and Eaden Shantay, offers daily yoga classes, an Ayurvedic spa, an organic kitchen and tea room, an eco-friendly boutique and a public peace garden. In March 2018, a new kiva and spa building is set to open within the peace garden, providing additional space for lectures, seminars, retreats and performing arts (traditionally, a kiva was a cylindrical underground space used by Southwestern Native Americans for spiritual ceremonies). The expanded spa will feature wraps, scrubs, facials, steam showers and four luxurious rooms equipped with Japanese soaking tubs for two. 100 N. 3rd St., Carbondale, 970.963.9900,
