Waking up early for a morning yoga class at the newly renovated Miramonte Resort and Spa, I was blessed to see one of the most spectacular sunrises in the Coachella Valley. The sky was an artists palette of magenta silhouetting Palm trees with splashes of purple, pink, orange and yellow hues.

Located two hours from Los Angeles between Palm Desert and La Quinta is one of the wealthiest zip codes in the desert. The city attracts a lot of executive retirees looking for a resort lifestyle of playing golf coupled with world class entertainment.

Families flock to see the BNP Paribas Tennis Open at the Tennis Garden showcasing some of the top tennis talent.

Foodies enjoy the nearby Palm Desert Food and Wine Festival and people of all ages come out to hear musical acts at the Coachella Valley Music Festival.

Before or after attending one of these events, The Miramonte Resort and Spa offers wellness classes with morning hikes and yoga to inspire health and help one’s mind and body inhale happiness.

Since this is a boutique property, the staff offers personalized service and activities. One unique experience is a morning hike with Mark Jeffrey, the General Manager of the Miramonte Resort. If his schedule is free, he will meet guests in the lobby with his friendly yellow labrador, Derby, and take guests on a narrative hike up the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto hills. If he is not available, the staff offers a Wellness Walk on Thursday & Friday 9 a.m.

On Saturday & Sunday there is complimentary Yoga on the lawn at 9 a.m., near The Well Spa. Guests learn gentle and dynamic yoga poses with breath work, while flowing from one pose to another. Those who seek a class in the afternoon, can choose an instructor that may teach Kundalini, Iyengar, Hatha or Vinyasa.
