Nature-focused weekend retreats include guided hikes, meditation in Yosemite National Park, spa treatments and more 
FISH CAMP, Calif., Aug. 3, 2017 — Wellness seekers can renew, reflect and reconnect in the beauty of the High Sierra this fall while participating in Tenaya Lodge’s Yosemite Renewal Wellness Retreats. The tranquil and rejuvenating weekend retreats are a joint venture between Tenaya’s Double Silver LEED-certified Ascent Spa and Yosemite-based Balanced Rock, a non-profit dedicated to inspiring health and well-being. Participants are encouraged to focus on self-care and mindful reflection while enjoying an inspiring itinerary that includes hiking, guided meditation in Yosemite National Park, healthy eats, a live food demonstration, spa treatments, September’s sunset yoga class led by Balanced Rock and November’s paint and wine class hosted by a local artist.
 
The three-day, two-night Yosemite Renewal Wellness Retreats start at $829 per night, per couple. Guests can choose from two fall 2017 dates; Sept. 29-October 1, and Nov. 3-5. Each retreat session is limited to just 30 guests, creating the perfect environment for an intimate personalized escape. Registration is available online or by calling (888) 514-2167.
 
“It’s important to take a breather from everyday life and engage in experiences that allow you to unwind and look inward,” said Stacy Duncan, Spa Manager. “There’s no better place to do this than in the beautiful High Sierra with its awe-inspiring natural landscape. What’s more, fall is the perfect time to pause, reflect and prepare for the new year around the corner.”
 
The three-day experience begins at the AAA Four Diamond Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite, where participants enjoy newly renovated, mountain-luxe lodge accommodations. The weekend schedule offers a blissful line-up of activities including:
 
Spa Treatments
Tenaya’s 10,000 sq. foot luxurious Ascent Spa, offers a rejuvenating and relaxing experience. Retreat participants can choose from any of Ascent’s 60-minute spa treatments including signature renewals, massage therapies, facial and body therapies, and nail services to indulge their mind, body and soul among the fresh aromas of the High Sierra. The state-of-the-art gym, spacious saunas and steam rooms, and Ascent gift shop offer guests more wellness options while they await their spa treatments.
 
Guided Hike, Meditation and Yoga
Participants are in for a mindful experience with hiking, meditation, and yoga lead by certified instructors at Balanced Rock.
  • September Retreat: Guests booking the September retreat will experience a day of hiking and guided meditation in Yosemite National Park where the transformational journey will take them among the sounds of roaring waterfalls, picturesque Yosemite icons, and the fresh aromas of the surrounding forests. Sunset yoga at Tenaya Lodge is also on the agenda of relaxation and will wind down the retreat.
  • November Retreat: Guests booking the November retreat will also experience a day of hiking and guided meditation, but among towering sequoia trees. Yoga will be held at Tenaya Lodge not once, but twice for guests during this retreat.
Fun with Food Demos, Art, and More
Tasty fun is in store for guests after a day of exploring Mother Nature. Tenaya’s Executive Chef Fred Clabaugh will lead participants at both retreats through an informative and fun session covering wellness, nutrition and a healthy food demonstration. After a day of hiking and guided meditation in Yosemite National Park and among the sequoias, participants will enjoy s’mores and wine on the patio. For those booking the November retreat, they will also have the opportunity to paint their very own masterpiece inspired by the majestic Yosemite landscape during an entertaining paint and wine session that includes all materials, step-by-step instruction from a professional artist and complimentary wine.
