NEW Services from Deborah Lippmann and Miraval:
Deborah Lippmann Signature Manicure
Our Miraval Manicure has set a new standard for healthy nail care. To leave your nails stronger, smoother, and more hydrated we begin with a nail analysis to properly address your specific nail needs. Let your senses escape to the tropics as your hands and arms are smoothed using a grapefruit and sea salt scrub to refine the skin. Further enhancing the silkiness, your arms and hands are massaged with a warm blend of vitamin E, pure white jojoba and coconut oil, relieving dry skin. To seal in moisture, your hands and arms are then massaged with a shea butter and avocado oil hand cream with broad spectrum SPF to help leave you protected from harmful UV rays.
Deborah Lippmann Signature Pedicure
A sweet selection for those who wish to be perfectly pampered, our Signature Pedicure will treat the most overworked feet. Our nail analysis sets this treatment up to specifically address your needs. Begin your pampering with a relaxing foot soak in a rosemary and aloe soaking elixir. A heated leg wrap infused with a blend of vitamin E, pure white jojoba and coconut oil follows your foot soak to further prepare the skin. Our warm grapefruit and sea salt scrub is then applied to exfoliate and soften your feet and legs. To perfect your pedi, we apply a kokum butter and aloe vera nourishing foot cream to smooth and soothe your soles. This pedicure is paired with an Organic African Nectar Tea.
We were so excited to have Chef Mindy Segal at Miraval this past weekend as part of our Celebrity Chef Series! Chef Segal led participants through a gourmet, five-course meal during two Cooking Demonstration Dinners (see menu). Here are some of our favorite photos of Chef Segal working with Executive Chef Justin Macy and the rest of the Miraval culinary team. Enjoy!
We are so excited to welcome Celebrity Chef Mindy Segal at Miraval this weekend (Friday, September 13 & Saturday, September 14). When it comes to pastry, Mindy Segal is right at home. With 20 years of crafting sweets under her belt, Segal combines her innate instinct for flavor combinations with her commitment to seasonal, local, and sustainable products. The result is desserts that are truly American; each creation is rooted in time-honored nostalgia, executed with a focus on quality, and innovative from just the right touch of contemporary twist.
Chef Segal has clocked time at some of the most esteemed kitchens in the country. After earning her culinary degree at Chicago's Kendall College, Segal landed the pastry assistant post at Ambria working under Chef Judy Contino, whom Segal credits as her biggest influence. She then moved on to refine her craft in the iconic kitchens of Spago, Gordon, and Charlie Trotter's, before eventually helping Chef Michael Kornick launch his successful River North eatery, mk the restaurant. As mk's head pastry chef, Segal developed a loyal following for her desserts like One Banana Two Banana and Cake-n-Shake, while earning her numerous accolades from local and national media.
WorldLifestyle.com recently spoke with our Creator of Equine Programs, Wyatt Webb, about his unique Equine Experience at Miraval. We love what he had to say:
“What makes this particularly powerful is that horses aren’t genetically programmed to be around people. They don’t want anything from us. They read the energy of the people and things they’re around, and they determine whether it’s safe or unsafe,” Webb explains. “So for them to cooperate, they need to determine the safety levels for that. If someone is being disingenuous or hiding something, the horse won’t cooperate. Only when people are being genuine does the energy flow.”

Wyatt began facilitating group therapy sessions in 1991 and has developed Miraval's signature Equine Experience over time. The Equine Experience provides profound insight into communication within relationships. Working on the ground with specially selected horses, guests begin to see patterns of learned behavior that may be working against them. Guests at Miraval can also join Wyatt for one of his four-day Equine Experience Immersions. Wyatt will devote six hours each day of very focused personalized attention to help participants challenge learned behaviors, correct false beliefs, and rediscover their authentic self.
