The beginning of the New Year has always meant a time of reflection, and for me, a time for renewal of body, mind and spirit as well. I use the early weeks of January, when the holiday lights have been taken down and the cold weather has settled around us, for a trip to Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Massachusetts.
I know that it is important to keep myself in balance through the right nutrition for my body, good sleep in a healthy environment, and exercise that gently stretches me to new levels of fitness. The experts at Canyon Ranch offer an innovative approach to health and wellness, and a passionate commitment to holistic care, all in beautiful and relaxing surroundings.
Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Massachusetts is housed in the former Bellefontaine Mansion, in the heart of the Berkshires. Built in 1897, the building has been restored in a style harmonious with the surrounding countryside. Architects worked with the local historic preservation board to be sure their restoration was fully authentic. In recent years, the spa has embraced the concept of sustainable interiors, and has chosen to use low VOC paints and other non-toxic materials in their healthy and beautiful surroundings.
It’s a step forward for all of us (and for a healthy planet) whenever sustainable choices are made: my enthusiasm for the good work done at Canyon Ranch is amplified by their conscious stewardship of the earth, and their dedication to the health of their guests.
The bottom line: however we choose to honor and care for ourselves, we must never take our health for granted!
