Vacation Escape to Canyon Ranch


Last week I had the chance to learn more about Canyon Ranch. Think luxury camp for adults where you can discover everything from yoga to massages - all while offering you a true escape from it all.

With a motto like "The Power of Possibility," I was excited to learn more about what Canyon Ranch has to offer including their restorative yoga classes, spa selection, healthy meal options, outdoor sports and fitness classes, and even how to make my very own fire. This collection of activities and classes was all a part of the incredible ways to get the most out of the Canyon Ranch that includes ways to feel restored and transformed as you explore and experience the vacation of a lifetime.

I loved learning about their yoga offerings with fitness instructor, Heather Schmidt who told me about how Canyon Ranch has a fun array of yoga classes for beginners and advanced practitioners. She explained that beginners don't have to be intimated and how they offer a variety of classes throughout the day for all levels. They also offer a variety of classes including creative dance, weight training, Tennis and Pilates as well as outdoor activities like hiking and biking.


I also learned more about their Healthy Feet Activities that were developed in partnership with Foot Expert Dr. Glenn Copeland (author of The Foot Book) who provided me with some techniques on how to strengthen and revitalize your feet and lower leg area. I also learned more about the Healthy Feet services at Canyon Ranch that includes a Foot Rescue Pedicure, a Gait Analysis, and Reflexology to connect the foot to the entire body.


My favorite part of the event was having the chance to relax and enjoy a hand massage. Using products from Red Flower, a luxurious botanically-based therapeutic treatment line, I enjoyed a Japanese Revitalizing, Massage that included a gentle scrub and hand massage. As a part of the many spa services at Canyon Ranch, I also learned about the many offerings from the Canyon Ranch Hotel and Spa in Miami Beach featuring the ultimate in pampering and relaxation, massage as well as therapeutic benefits including maternity theraphies, Muscle Melt for “Road Warriors,” Thai Massage, Shirodhara, and De-Stress Chakra Rituals to restore and treat what ails you.

I also had the chance to chat with Chef Scott Uehlein who spoke about the gourmet options at Canyon Ranch that feature seasonal specialties and healthy options. Some samplings from their spa cuisine that I enjoyed were their delicious sweetened granola, Spanish Seafood Salad, Mini Chocolate Zucchini Cakes and smoothies that kept me powered and energized throughout the day.

An afternoon of learning all that Canyon Ranch had to offer was a great way to re-connect as you enhance your diet, fitness regime and enjoy beautiful surroundings at one of their six luxurious locations.
