Last week the team at Capella Pedregal had the honor of welcoming renowned spa designer and planner, Sylvia Sepielli. This was her first visit back since Auriga spa opened and I was excited to catch up with her.
Sylvia, we are so happy to have you back with us! What brings you to Capella Pedregal?
I am so excited to be back! During these past years, Auriga has evolved and grown, so I came to add some new training and re-energize the team. I wanted to see with my own eyes how the concept has changed.
What do you think about the evolution of Auriga spa in Cabo?
I am truly amazed by how much the team really understands the concept and personally conveys it to the guests. Auriga spa is named after the constellation, of which Capella is the brightest star. When Mr. Schulze and I were developing the concept, the moon came to our minds immediately. It is so powerful and can help our guests re-connect with their origins. The Capella Pedregal Auriga team completely understands the purpose of each element. They have created the perfect balance between the moon, the sea and “pure Baja” by incorporating local traditions. It has become such a special place and I am really proud of them.
Can you help us understand more about the Moon connection to life?
I always like to compare it to the seasons of the year:
- New Moon = Winter or the beginning
Similar to bears hibernating, it’s time to save energy and build strength. You sow the seeds in your life`s ambitions, reflect and make a wish.
- Waxing Moon = Spring or plant new life
It is time to refocus your energy and nourish yourself so you can reach your goals and a higher potential.
- Full Moon = Summer or the height
Most cultures traditionally celebrate the full moon as a time when the mind and body is most fertile. Embrace creative impulses and say yes to what might come your way.
- Waning Moon = Fall or cleansing
Just as trees lose their leaves, this is the time to release tensions and toxins.
If you were to recommend a treatment each guest should experience, which one would it be?
I would say a Moon Treatment to start your vacation with balance and also the Ancient Traditional Massage, it’s fantastic!
Mr. Horst Schulze, Chairman and CEO of Capella Hotel Group, and Sylvia visualized Auriga spa as a relaxing retreat during a vacation and a way to transcend our guest’s lives. Make sure you ask your Personal Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org to help set up your own Auriga experience.
