Top-level wellness in the mountains, in the desert, and across the seas

In partnership with our friends at Celebrity Cruises

“Well-being” can be a loaded word. For us, it is a holistic experience of mind, body and soul, the ability to log out of the zoom matrix and access the self. Now, the tools for tapping are purely individual. For some, it is a week on horseback in the desert. For others, it is the spiritual center that only a strong desert landscape can provide. And for many (if not most), it’s about accessing a body of water. A salty dew, the beating of the waves, the light that crosses the sea and enters your cabin as you look towards the uninterrupted horizon … should we move on?

Here are three world-class experiences: ranching at Rock Creek in Montana, stargazing in Sedona, and programming and deals (curated by NEWS BLOCK) aboard the Celebrity Beyond.

Well-being in the water

A proper vacation, where every detail is in the hands of someone else, is hard to beat. Add a deep feeling of ahhhhhh that only the ocean can bring, away from the city with its myriad demands and distractions, and target us. Celebrity beyond She is the newest ship in the Edge series, and the comprehensive wellness programming on board is truly on another level. Plus, GP is Celebrity’s newest wellness advisor, adding a lot of sticky touches and experiences. (Hint: Expect NEWS BLOCK-approved products on the AquaClass fitness menu, our favorite clean shake, and a few surprises along the way.)

    On the ship, wellness is a daily practice and begins in AquaClass cabins designed by Kelly Hoppen, CBE. There’s a pillow menu (a pillow menu, folks!) To promote good posture, and there are yoga mats in the room – we recommend getting out of your fluffy bed at dawn, rolling out the mat on your deck, and saying hello at sunrise. In addition to clean, plant-based eating at Blu, you’ll have access to the SEA Thermal Suite (the Salt Room is beyond) and a gym equipped with a full roster of classes including F45, Peloton, and yoga. But what we are most excited about is the Women in Wellness program. Why? We look forward to receiving the gold nuggets of practical and feel-good wisdom, exclusive classes and treatments from the wonders of wellness like Ruth Zukerman, co-founder of SoulCycle; lifestyle expert Kimberly Snyder; and our own wellness director, Kiki Koroshetz. A cruise vacation is a happy marriage of exploration and finding time to just be, with the sea as the soundtrack.

    Rewild in Big Sky Country

    Montana – Open spaces, intoxicating American culture, and so many horseback rides attract you. Think of the Ranch at Rock Creek as your base camp to relax and recharge. Simply put, discomfort does not exist here. Accommodations include giant canvas huts, cozy farm wagons, and two-story log houses, all outfitted with local textiles, potbelly stoves, and plenty of charm. The staff will tuck you in a sour whiskey, truffled popcorn, and the softest blankets of your life for a screening of A river runs through it. In that sense, picnics by the river are legendary. But we are here to ride.

    Private guides and real life wrestlers keep your gallop in check as you traverse the slopes of wild sagebrush and pine trails. (Scott dunn will create a tailor-made itinerary if you want to cover more ground). The journey is exhilarating and absurdly liberating. Thunderous hooves, the smells of that mugwort, and wild beauty take up all the space in your mind, leaving no room for to-do lists, unread emails, and more. Rock Creek also has a fantastic wellness program for massages and facials. Certified herbalist on staff to prepare custom tinctures, yoga nidra meditation for better sleep, and forest baths to enhance everything.

    Recharge in the desert

    Spiritually and starkly beautiful with a woo-woo side is a pretty fitting descriptor for Sedona. The otherworldly landscape, the mystical energy pumping through the red dust of the desert: it is palpable. Better yet, Sedona is rich with incredible healers and practitioners. And you should make the most of it; after all, the energy vortex is on his side.

  • Speaking of healers, two stand out. Adele sands He has a small horse ranch adjacent to the village where he does sound and Reiki baths. And Anne Emerson is intuitive and a muscle tester. (Emerson works remotely too, making it a great option if you want to continue unpacking old programming long after you return home.) Where to Stay? Sedona’s L’Auberge feels perfectly built for today’s great outdoors. Occupying a bluff and shady creek bed on eleven acres, the rooms are mostly cozy cabins with fireplaces, outdoor showers, and serious views. But aside from the spacious homes away from home and the great food (don’t miss out 89 Agave Cantina), is the spa with its stargazing led by astronomers, sound baths, yoga and staff who can point you to the most powerful vortices and walks in the area that make us check in (and check out) every time.
