YOGA TO GETAWAY
While some will be tempted to abandon their warm weather fitness routines, those with bigger plans will be keeping their svelte summer figures ready for winter vacations in tropical climates.
A surefire way to keep the motivation going? A retreat to Galiano Island with the yoga stars from Semperviva.
A quick ferry ride and $445 will get you 2 nights accommodation, vegetarian meals, yoga classes, hikes and either kayaking or a boat cruise. They’ll even collect you from the ferry dock and whisk you to your wilderness cabins. You can opt for morning meditations (but we choose to sleep in) and massages are available for extra tired bodies.
We spent the weekend making new friends, breathing fresh island air and learning some new poses. And after a few downward dogs, we were newly devoted to those toned muscles we earned—and planning a Maui getaway for January.
Next Galiano retreats: October 3, 2008 and April 24, 2009.
