The Pearl Laguna Beach: Luxury Yoga, Hiking and Cleansing Retreat
21095 Raquel Road, Laguna Beach (949) 715-1674
Balance and wellness established by connecting with nature is an important mantra at the Pearl, which was established by two renowned yogis. Nestled in the canyon of Laguna Beach, overlooking miles of beautiful coastal trails, this getaway is luxurious, yet the intimacy of small groups is maintained.
If your kindred spirit is the likes of John Muir, and you're seeking more Zen, the Pearl is the ideal, tranquil setting. The health and wellness program focuses on grounding and centering guests through a three-step process that includes a cleansing meal plan, daily fitness regime, and meditation. Yoga and hiking are the predominant forms of exercise, while daily introspection provides an opportunity to switch off the brain. Visitors can choose between a single, or a two-week program, both of which are designed to build on what you have already done.
During a stay, each day will begin with a power yoga class, meant to awaken the body, and invigorate the spirit. Also in the mornings, guided hikes around the expansive property offer an ideal mixture of fitness and relaxation. The Pearl has 20,000 acres of stunning coastal property, just waiting to be explored. Later in the day, attend a workout class at the open-air gym, or unwind with a massage (offered daily). Other ways to shed unwanted stress include relaxing in the Jacuzzi, or the infrared sauna, which clears the body of unwanted toxins. Dine on the delicious, vegetarian cuisine, which is made with the freshest local ingredients. Finally, conclude each day with a flow yoga class, focused on relaxation and deep breathing. In this class, you will do a daily meditation practice, which helps deepen the connection between the mind and body.
If you are looking for a more personalized retreat, reserve the Pearl for you and a group. Private parties will receive programs that cater to their unique fitness goals and dietary needs. Promoting overall body healing and restorative practices, one can be assured that they will receive the complete wellness experience at the Pearl Laguna Beach. Guests leave feeling stronger and healthier, with a better sense of inner balance.
