Happy New Year! I hope the year started wonderfully for you! For me personally, the New Year is always a time to reflect on all the good things in my life, my achievements in the previous year, and plans to start new beginnings with fresh ideas. I like to start off with good intentions to make positive changes in my life. This year especially, I want to focus on wellness in all areas of my life. In Baja there are many activities that promote wellness and I wanted to share three of my favorites with you. I believe they are a great way to connect with nature, your body and your spirit and I plan to experience them as frequently as possible this year!
SUP Yoga: I love SUP yoga, because it allows me to practice yoga in my favorite environment: the sea! If you are not familiar with SUP yoga, it is yoga but done on a stand up paddle board (SUP) on the sea. I love how it enhances the yoga experience and benefits, and really strengthens your core and balance. You can partake SUP yoga classes at Medano beach in Cabo San Lucas (please check with your Personal Assistant on the dates, as they are organized as special events). I also love to take an unplugged weekend in Los Barriles and attend SUP yoga classes with the locals.
Surfari Trips: If you like safari, you need to try a Baja surfari; a surf trip around Baja, where you get to surf some of the best surf spots in Baja! Surfaris provide a very unique opportunity to experience nature, the ocean, hidden bays and small villages—all while learning new surfing skills and spend quality time with friends or family. I love surfaris in Baja, as you can join them any time of year – because we are surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, there are always great surf breaks somewhere.
Spa Time: for a complete restoration of body and health there is nothing like a visit to the spa. At Capella Pedregal’s Auriga spa we have just launched the entirely new wellness program with wellness treatments and 1- to 3-day wellness packages based on moon phases. One of my new favorite treatments is Harmonyum. Gabby, the therapist, who was trained exclusively on this treatment, explained that our body has the power to heal itself when we are in perfect harmony and it all starts in the spine, which connects and protects all the nerves in our body. She explained that the Harmonyum method, which is based on curing with energy, works on the spinal column and the organs. It transmits positive impulses to the body through the nervous system. The experience is extremely relaxing, and you can feel the benefits throughout your body for days. You will feel energized physically, mental and emotionally.
