Here’s how you can escape the everyday stresses and enjoy a relaxing self-care day in Costa Mesa. Self-Care in Costa Mesa


Morning Workout

Pure Barre

The best way to start the day is with some morning movement, and Pure Barre is sure to help you feel the burn! “Class in the morning clears your morning brain fog without the coffee and leaves you feeling awake and refreshed for your day rather than depleted like some workouts can do to you,” says owner Monica Grubin. This ballet-inspired workout is designed to strengthen and tone your entire physique using small, isometric movements. Not a dancer? Don’t sweat it—Pure Barre’s well-trained teachers will make you feel supported. It’s a high-intensity class, so be prepared to break a sweat, but the low-impact exercises make this workout ideal for all body types and ages! Grubin says, “You’ll leave feeling alert, awake and ready to take on the day.”

Happy Sips

Neat Coffee

After crushing your workout, head into Costa Mesa’s friendly neighborhood spot, Neat Coffee, to enjoy some morning munchies. It might be tough to choose between their avocado toast or pan con tomate toast, but thanks to their half-and-half option, you won’t have to. If you’re a fiend for caffeine, the Cortado is a must, or try their jasmine lime iced tea if you are looking for something more refreshing. 


Get Creative

Founded by mother-daughter duo Gabriela and Nicole Moreno, the vision for Barro is to offer a place for locals to find their own creative solace and feel at home making unique pieces.
