Wine + Workouts = Wellness in Napa Valley
April 23, 2014
Want to getaway to the Napa Valley but don’t want to spend your return flight in a major Cabernet and rib eye coma? Then perhaps you should have a look at these hotel and winery wellness programs to keep you balanced throughout your stay. There’s nothing ascetic about these healthy offerings – try fitting in one or two classes a day before wine tasting or spend your whole day being active before a decadent dinner.
From hikes and bikes to yoga and Pilates – the Napa Valley has wellness a-plenty to keep your heart rate up and your mind/body connection renewed.
Besides being a full-on country club style resort with bocce ball, tennis, a swimming pool, and golf – the Meadowood Napa Valley resort also offers indoor cycling, Pilates, yoga, personal trainers and even has guided hikes on their property.
Solage offers guests daily complimentary fitness classes including yoga, TRX, Pilates, Spin, Aqua Aerobics and more. They also provide bicycles for exploring the area. If you aren’t staying at the resort, you can pay a small fee to attend these classes on their property.
The hotel hosts weekly yoga classes at 6:00 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. on Mondays which is complimentary for guests and non-guests can pay to attend.
