Palm Springs has long been considered a perfect place to escape for a desert retreat. The area embodies a calming atmosphere that encourages people to enjoy a more relaxed and balanced way of life, if only temporarily.
The city and immediately surrounding areas are host to numerous wellness events throughout the year, which focus on the mind, body, and soul. If you’re looking to recharge your batteries and find an inspiration boost, there are plenty of options to choose from.
WHERE TO GO TO UNWIND
Engage multiple senses with Yoga Amongst the Art. Every Monday and Wednesday from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM, yoga enthusiasts can gather for a unique class at The Coachella Valley Art Scene. Monday classes are curated to a musical mix that enhances the flow of the poses. While Wednesday evenings are dedicated to yoga by candlelight among some of the city’s finest art.
Alternatively, being outdoors is a great way to invigorate the body and energize the spirit. Join fellow nature lovers at Joshua Tree Visitor Center on Saturday, October 22 from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM for a hike to Lost Horse Mine. Joshua Tree National Park offers a fascinating area to explore, but this specific event will give an informative look into the history of the area’s gold mining. Part tour, part hike, plus a lunch at the mine, makes for a well-rounded day of wellness.
There are also numerous places that can help you find your Zen moment year-round. It’s all about what makes you feel good both inside and out.
DESERT YOGA THERAPY
Sign up for a class at one of several locations throughout the Coachella Valley. Guests can pick classes based on their skill and comfort level. The Therapeutic Yoga class focuses on care for shoulders, backs, knees, or hips. It is a mix of Gentle and Restorative Yoga to help with fluidity and flexibility.
As far as full-service desert retreats in California go, visitors need to look no further than our own Rock Spa®. We incorporate all the traditional techniques of spa treatments, such as massage, facials, and body scrubs, and put our on musical spin on it. Choose from our extensive menu of treatment options and honor your body with the pampering it deserves.
WE CARE SPA
Although classes rotate every week, guests of We Care Spa enjoy a different level of relaxation than your average day spa. This desert getaway helps people “detox” from everyday stresses and concentrate on taking time to slow down. As a detoxification spa center, guests can plan their visit to include a juice fast program, meditation, and other holistic approaches to improving wellness.
When it comes to planning your next desert getaway, find your balance. Feel pampered. And focus on what you need to reach serenity among the beautiful landscape of Palm Springs.
