Feel free to engage as much or as little as you wish, ensuring that every moment aligns with your personal needs and preferences. Relax, unwind, and make this retreat your own.

Daily Yoga

Yoga offers a multitude of advantages for both the mind and body. The practice focuses on self-healing and encourages connection to inner selves and bodies. During our yoga classes, we’ll engage in a combination of poses that stimulate the release of mood-boosting endorphins, as well as postures that promote relaxation and tranquility. The physical benefits of yoga are extensive, including improved flexibility, enhanced muscle strength, and cardiovascular conditioning. One of the remarkable aspects of yoga is its accessibility to all skill levels. We will be encouraged to explore our personal limits without striving for perfection.

Daily T'ai Chi Chih

TCC teachers and students describe the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual changes they have experienced, many within a few days or weeks of beginning classes. The effects of the practice are cumulative, so many health improvements take place over time. Migraine headaches lessen and even disappear. Joint pain ceases. Happiness increases. Peacefulness pervades. Blood pressure comes down and joy goes up. Everyone’s experience is different, but most report positive changes.

TCC practice allows the essential energy that moves within us all to circulate and balance. That in turn improves our health and sense of well-being. I personally experience a sense of peace and balance.

Daily Guided Meditation

Meditation, is the art of dedicating moments to nurture your mind, allowing it to learn the art of concentration and steering your thoughts in the desired direction. It's a marvelous practice that enables you to minimize stress, embrace the positive aspects of life, and silence the never-ending chatter that fills our minds 24/7.

The popularity of meditation has soared in recent times, and it's not without good reason. Its countless health benefits have captivated the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Thus, scheduling the time during your weekend for a guided meditation session will work wonders for your stress levels and ability to focus. This is designed for all participants of the retreat.

Hiking Trails Galore

You'll discover an abundance of hiking trails that boast scenic beauty with each and every step you take. If you so desire, it would be a perfect addition to your wellness retreat, offering both physical and mental rejuvenation.

Hiking is not only a fantastic way to boost cardiovascular health and build those glorious muscles, but it also works wonders in alleviating stress levels. And let's not forget the undeniable charm of immersing ourselves in nature's embrace and beholding breathtaking vistas along the way. It’s New Mexico and I am excited. Truly, the allure is irresistible.

Maps of the trails will be provided. What’s your pleasure? Enjoy a leisurely stroll or seek the thrill of a challenging hike. Each one of us will be able to revel in the experience we choose.

The natural mineral springs await...

Immerse and Heal with All-Day Access 10am – 10pm

At Ojo Caliente, the communal pools lie at the core of their offerings, and we are invited to indulge in their healing embrace. In this serene setting, we will fully immerse ourselves in the health benefits of soaking, while connecting to our group and other travelers. The pools, each boasting a unique design and offering breathtaking views of our natural surroundings and meticulously landscaped grounds, await exploration.

I encourage you to experience the distinct qualities of each pool, as their temperatures range from a soothing 80 to an invigorating 105 degrees. Immerse yourself in each pool and relish in the enriching minerals that offer a different experience in every embrace. It's a whisper zone, so kindly remember to maintain a peaceful atmosphere throughout the springs area. I will do my best to have maps and information on each one. I cannot wait to check them all out.

Spend some time reconnecting with yourself, finding inner peace, and experiencing personal growth. Get ready to elevate your well-being and embrace a path of self-care that will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to embrace life's limitless possibilities.

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Hope to see you there.

Live every day on purpose,

Peggy Romero
