Although we continue to offer signature programs and services to our guests such as The Miraval Equine Experience (which has been around for 17 years), we continue to innovate and introduce new programs and services every month.
February is a special month because it marks the launch of our new culinary clinics. These new clinics were developed by Executive Chef Justin Macy and our Pastry Chef (also his wife!) Kim. We wanted to highlight some of our other new offerings that debut this month. Hope you enjoy!

expertise about the topic and shared the findings of a 5 year intensive study
between her foundation and Harvard Medical School. The findings were clear and
there are steps you can take in your everyday life to lower your risk of
developing breast cancer. Dr. Marisa Weiss and her team are now sharing a
prevention message through Breastcancer.org’s Think Pink, Live Green initiative.

It was fitting that we hosted the lectures here at Miraval because what the Miraval team of wellness specialists teaches everyday is overwhlemingly relevant and in line with what Dr. Weiss and her team are teaching. Miraval is a great place to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle and embrace change.

We’re excited to introduce this new program “25 Feet Closer to You” as it is a collaboration between the Outdoor Adventure team and the Wellness team – giving you the most supportive environment possible to face your fears and find your balance.
