spasSANTA ANA PUEBLO, N.M.Tamaya Mist Spa & Salon is hosting its inaugural Yoga and Wellness Retreat Oct. 24-26. The weekend retreat will allow participants to focus on total wellness, including nutrition, exercises, Yoga, meditation and self-reflective journaling. 

“More and more, today’s spa customer is looking for relief from the stress of an over-scheduled, constantly-wired life,” Stephanie Martinez, Tamaya Mist spa director, said. “The retreat is not just about looking better, but it’s about feeling better too; beautifying the body from the inside out, renewing both the mind and the spirit.  

Mindful living—focusing on what’s important in life—is central to the Yoga and Wellness Retreat.

“The physical benefits of spa and wellness activities have long been known to reduce stress and relax our bodies, but in 2014 … there will be a sharp focus on interweaving mindfulness techniques … to help us reach a whole new place of serenity and calm,” Spafinder Wellness 365’s 2014 Trends Report stated. 

The goal is for participants to leave feeling relaxed and more balanced after their personalized journey towards increased self-awareness and wellness. The retreat package includes: two nights’ stay, welcome reception, breakfast each day, two Yoga/One Qigong classes, an 80-minute signature spa treatment, a healthy cooking demo, walking meditative journey and a guided reflective journaling session.
