Special Interest Retreats Apr 29

Serenity Meditation Pond

A retreat is an opportunity to withdraw from your regular routine and responsibilities. It can be used as a time for quiet contemplation and personal development. Canyon Ranch provides a nurturing, supportive environment where your daily needs are catered to while you pursue your individual interests.

For several years, I have partnered with experts in other fields to offer themed, special interest retreats. Theses are flexible groups that you can join as an individual or with a companion. You are welcome to attend group activities but not required to. The benefits go well beyond the group rates and amenities. Traveling and sharing experiences with like-minded people is just plain FUN.

Artist’s Retreat Workshop

For example, you can start a healthy new year with Rose Zahnn, President of the Healthy Habits Fitness Studios on her annual Spa and Fitness Getaway each January. Decompress with her Gentle Yoga class in the Yoga Dome the first evening and then join her at other fitness activities throughout your stay. Or release your creative spirit in private daily painting workshops with award-winning artist Brenda Boles on her Artist’s Retreat. Join Ann DaPrato, owner of the Rise Yoga Studio, on her annual summer Yoga and Meditation Retreat and learn simple techniques to de-stress and re-energize. Of course, you are welcome to join me on my Gourmet Getaway in July and enjoy a week of culinary events.

Spalicious Apr 15

spa cuisineHealthy, delicious, gourmet spa cuisine DOES exist!

Gorgeous, fresh, whole, organic food is skillfully prepared and artfully presented to you three times a day. You will look forward to your meals with anticipation and learn exactly what an appropriate portion size is for full-size adults. Different daily lunch and dinner menus list the nutritional content of items in terms of calories, fat and fiber so you can make sensible, educated choices.

If the words spa cuisine elicit an image of a pristine white salad plate decorated with two lettuce leaves and a cherry tomato crowned with a tuft of radish sprouts (I call that garnish), rest assured, you won’t starve at Canyon Ranch. There are no extreme 1,000 calorie a day restricted diets here. Eating well is a necessary pleasure for optimal health.

Naturally, you are encouraged to eat nutrient-rich fruits & vegetables and whole grains as well as lean protein and healthy fats. Balance and moderation are the keys, even when it comes to dessert. And healthy snacks plus a wide variety of beverages are available throughout the day.

So many choices, so little time. My advice: try the chef’s suggested Balanced Selection of 3 courses.

Canyon Ranch Cookbook

Attend the daily interactive Lunch & Learn in the intimate 36 -seat Demonstration Kitchen and watch Canyon Ranch chefs as they cook a variety of daily entrees. Ask questions while you enjoy your 3 course lunch and come away with the recipes to take home. Meanwhile, the small Hands on Cooking classes provide an opportunity for active participation and firsthand learning. If you are a serious foodie, consider the week-long Canyon Ranch Cooks culinary program. This Gourmet Getaway features daily cooking classes, lively demonstrations, chef-hosted dinners, cooking tips, nutrition discussions and more. Learn practical skills and professional techniques from award-winning chefs as they share their “divine cuisine and nutritional wisdom”.
