Destination: Fun and Fitness

Need to get away? Taking a break from the usual routine rests the mind, invigorates the body, and tops off our energy tanks. A week of indulgence is blissful - lazy days, rich foods, and umbrella drinks are definite details on the vacation planner. If your time off includes too much indulgence you might come back feeling heavier and more tired, which counteracts the retreat to begin with. That's why we compiled our top destinations that give us the perfect balance of fun and fitness. Camp/Kayak (San Juan Islands, WA) - If water and whales are in your wheel house, find your way to the San Juan Islands this Summer to experience majestic beauty. This little string of islands off the Washington coast provide the perfect backdrop to kayaking and camping. You can witness bald eagles soaring, seals bobbing, dolphins plunging and Orca whales feeding. Kayaking is a great workout for the arms, back and core, so you'll be using what Pilates gives you. Yoga/Surf (Costa Rica) - Spread your toes in the sand and escape to the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica. Whether you're a beginner or experienced surfer, the combination of ocean play with daily yoga will strengthen and stretch your body and spirit. Post workouts include tapping into a fresh coconut and noshing on the local juicy fruits. Bike/Hike (Moab, Utah) - It's described as the best place for mountain biking on the planet. We believe it. This colorful desert oasis offers hiking and mountain biking trails for all experience levels. Using your powerful legs to ascend and descend will burn a lot of calories and give you a cardiovascular high as you climb. Health Resort (Miraval, Tucson, AZ) - The beauty of health resorts is they offer complete activity and meal plans that help put you on a set path to wellness. While there are many sprinkled across the U.S., Miraval is a well known destination for spa treatments, culinary goodness, spiritual development, and an array of activities. Our ambassadors are also traveling the world spreading love and offering retreats and workshops that are perfect for your dream getaway. Connect with them as they travel to Colorado, California, Orgeon, Canada, Australia, and more. Take out the calendar and let's start planning our vacation! Even if it's a "stay-cation", you can still zen out and give your life the break it needs.
