SpaFinder recently named our newest spa service, the Miraval Mindful Massage, as one of the top spa trends to watch for in 2013. We are delighted to continue to lead the industry in innovation wiht our focus on mind-body-spirit wellness. I am also excited to share that we have recently renovated our Agave Center and the new space is an incredibly peaceful setting for yoga and meditation. Beginning this Spring, take your yoga practice to the air! Miraval will be offering Aerial Yoga to our guests. Additionally we will debut an Aerial Meditation called Floating Meditation which was developed by our team and is available exclusively at Miraval. I know you'll love it when you try it!
See you at Miraval!

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!

We are delighted to announce the addition of Miraval Journeys, a series
of curated, private adventure tours through the world’s most exclusive
regions. From the mountains of Morocco to the Croatian coastline,
Miraval Journeys offer exquisite adventures that give guests the chance
to explore the world, mindfully.
Led by Miraval’s seasoned tour partner David Smith in conjunction with
local experts, the journeys provide guests the opportunity to discover
the most breathtaking corners of the globe. Through classes facilitated
by Miraval specialists accompanying the tours, guests will experience
travel in the Miraval way, while living life in the moment and growing
as individuals with each new day and experience.
Get the inside scoop on the new Life in Balance Spa and how Miraval continues to promote healthy and sustainable living. Miraval's President & General Manager (aka: our fearless leader!) Michael Tompkins joined radio talk show host Gina Murphy-Darling on the Mrs. Green's World radio show on Saturday (5/5/12). Listening to this in-depth radio interview is a great way to learn about Miraval and to hear from Michael himself why he believes Miraval is successful - and why the Miraval experience makes such a significant impact on the lives our guests - each day of the year.
For many of our guests who have experienced the Miraval Challenge Course over the years, they tell us that the real “challenge” is not the physical but rather the emotional and mental hoops they go through to overcome fears and “just go for it.”
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.
