Retune, recharge at Coeur d’Alene Resort wellness retreats
Fall has us relishing every opportunity to be outdoors, but also focusing on our inner world, from the cozy spots we seek out in our homes to being more mindful about maintaining health through the winter. The COEUR D’ALENE RESORT has three events to help you do both with their series of LIVE WELL SPA RETREATS.
Starting at $149.50 per person/double occupancy ($199, single occupancy) the resort’s Live Well retreats include overnight accommodations in their plush, redecorated Lake Tower rooms with late checkout, of course. Book a 50-minute treatment of your choice — a pedicure, perhaps, or a facial — on either Sunday or Monday at their world class spa, which has been ranked one of the top resort spas in America according to Condé Nast. You’ll also enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast bar serving fresh-made pastries, seasonal fruit, grains and breakfast beverages before heading out on Monday to your retreat activities.
Add mimosas to your experience during the Mountains and Mimosa Retreat, Oct. 27-28. Check in on Sunday at 4 pm and enjoy complimentary kombucha, have breakfast Monday then suit up for a guided hike of beautiful Mineral Ridge which offers stunning views over Beauty and Wolf Lodge bays on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
The resort is also offering two yoga retreats through the end of the year. “If you’ve experienced the stress-relieving benefits of a deep sleep or the rejuvenating effects of a lakeside getaway, then you’re already familiar with the stress-relieving elements of yoga,” says Emily Hudson, who teaches yoga for the resort.
The Yoga and Spa Retreat Nov. 17-18 includes a sunrise yoga class and mindfulness workshop on Monday. The Live Well Mindfulness Workshop will focus on specific techniques for living in the present moment, with a focus on gratitude as we approach the holiday season,” Hudson says. “Attendees will be guided through techniques and learn about the many health benefits of mindfulness during the workshop and will receive a recap handout to continue the practice at home.”
The Sushi and Sunrise Yoga Retreat Dec. 15-16 has you working with local chef Hyun Son to learn to make healthy sushi on Sunday evening. After breakfast Monday, experience the smooth, flowing movements of a vinyasa yoga class, ideal for beginners and experienced yogis alike.
