Weekends can sometimes feel over as soon as they begin, and it can be difficult to find time to savor the break. The Chopra Center, a world-renowned health and wellness resort and spa co-founded by Deepak Chopra, M.D., encourages everyone to slow down, relax, and dedicate some serious time to rejuvenation, especially during the hectic holiday season.
Nestled in beautiful North County San Diego, the customized Ayurvedic wellness treatments and the beautiful scenery around the property make The Chopra Center the perfect weekend getaway and place to unwind.
Here are some ways The Chopra Center is the best place for a weekend escape:
- Release the physical stress from the workweek | A great way to slough off tension from the 9 to 5 life is to indulge in a wellness treatment that addresses both the mind and body. For powerful tension relief, try Vishesh (vi-shesh), an invigorating choreographed massage with deep strokes to clear and detoxify circulation channels. For a more relaxing option, go for Shirodhara (shiro-dar-a), their most meditative treatment in which a soothing stream of warm oil is poured over the forehead and onto the sixth chakra, your intuitive energetic center. It calms the central nervous system and integrates the mind and body.
- Re-center your intention for the week ahead | Take part in a donation-based meditation or yoga class, which are offered almost every day at The Chopra Center in the morning or early evening. Each session begins with a brief introduction to guide you into the inner quiet of your meditation, giving you the time and space to clear and calm your mind, and set a positive intention for the week ahead.
- Reward yourself with some treats | Think back on all the amazing things you accomplished over the week, and treat yourself to some goodies. The Chopra Center’s retail space sells everything from soft and cozy apparel to beautiful hand-made jewelry to decadent bath and bed products. There’s something for everyone to bring the experience home with them.
