Where do you Yoga/Beach/Spa/Getaway?


Our lives get complicated and we go to Yoga. Because on the mat, everything is simple.

In fact we go to yoga no matter what but this week we've decided it's time. Time to get away. To a place where we only ever have to use one of three required verbal ques for all of our communications.

1)"Yes, I would like a complimentary smoothie."

2)"Could you tie up my Bikini before I go for a swim?"

3) "Is it time for ocean view yoga yet?"

Today we looked into the Ritz Carlton Puerto Rico where the Spa Director IS the Yoga Instructor. We think this will require even less effort to get our needs met and LOOK at these pictures!!! I took one of the most intense yoga classes of my LIFE at the Ritz Carlton Georgetown (and you know, the Ritz, is well, the Ritz. So EVERYTHING tends toward AMAZING) In shopping for this vacation specifically, we are looking deeply into the theory behind the yoga program and or spa treatments. We've shared some of what we learned about The R-C Puerto Rico and their yoga program below.

Yoga Practice
Hatha Yoga Practice for all levels of experience. Classes include centering, breath-work (pranayama), warm-ups, postures (asanans), relaxation, and closing meditation. You are guided to move at your own pace, honoring your body's needs in each and every movement. Improve strength, endurance, and flexibility. Develop physical, mental, and emotional balance. Practice is based on loving-kindness, compassion, self-acceptance, and non-judgment.

Tap Into Your Unlimited Source of Perfect Health and Well-being. Ayurveda (Science of Life), Yoga’s sister science, is a system based on natural healing through strengthening the body, mind and spirit and allowing the body's own natural healing mechanisms to work to their fullest potential. The daily routine is called the Dinacharya. This daily routine is one of the best things we can do to stay in balance, prevent disease and is considered a stronger healing force than any other curative medicine. The reason for this is that the healthy and happy state is the most natural state.
