What better place to focus on wellness, but the desert of Palm Springs!  We are in countdown mode to the first (and hopefully annual) Wanderlust Wellspring Retreat coming to Downtown Palm Springs!  The three day festival boasts 200+ classes as well as workshops, panels and activities.  Wanderlust “brings together wellness experts, professionals and other enthusiasts to answer the question – how do we make ourselves and the world well?”  Russel Brand is the keynote speaker.

According to Wanderlust, there are four pillars to the festival and a little something for everyone:  Practice, Think, Sweat, and Restore.

Practice:  Flow, ground down, and connect with yoga and meditation masters.

Think:  Gather with the most prolific wellness minds of our time and uncover actionable answers to personal, social, and global issues.

Sweat:  From spinning to HIIT to boxing and more, strengthen and detox mind and body with industry-leading instructors.

Restore:  Recharge daily from stretching your mind and body to the maximum. Unwind with Ayurveda, Bodywork, Reiki, Soundbaths, and more.

Don’t forget to leave some time for yourself for some poolside lounging and swimming in our saltwater pool.  We keep the pool heated to 85 degrees year-round.
