Hiking the Laguna Hills with the most beautiful views of Laguna Beach, California

A view of gorgeous Laguna Beach while hiking

I recently traveled across the world and spent an amazing two weeks at the Blue Pearl Laguna Hiking and Yoga Spa, founded by Geo and Katresha Moskios, two of the worlds most renowned yoga teachers and also two of the most caring and motivating people you will ever meet.

Blue Pearl Laguna is an intimate retreat nestled amongst trees in Laguna Canyon and has twelve beautiful bedrooms with marble en suites.  Even the New York Times rated this five star Spa the best.

Laguna Beach itself is a quaint seaside village full of fabulous art galleries and about an hours drive south of LA and an hour from San Diego.

From the moment I stepped into the very spacious Zen living room, complete with its cheerful open fire, I was greeted by the wonderful warm staff of Blue Pearl Laguna.

From then on I didn’t have to think about a thing for two weeks!

No watch, computer or mobile phone. It was bliss just being completely cared for.

The day begins with Geo’s Signature Power Yoga, followed by a delicious breakfast and hiking in the beautiful Laguna Hills.

One day we hiked 11 miles to the beach to enjoy lunch in a gorgeous park overlooking the ocean.  I must say it was great to get those hiking boots off and soak my feet in the sea.

Everyday I had a massage, they were all heavenly. Then it was off to the sauna and jacuzzi, before taking time to rest.  

Most evenings began with a fireside chat then yoga, sometimes with the inspirational Katresha then a beautiful dinner and a different herb tea and then that wonderful bed with its gorgeous crisp white linen and then a well earned sleep.

We were served the most delicious vegetarian meals, beautifully and stylishly presented. I can’t wait for Katresha’s new cookbook to be published.

Stay tuned, I’ll share the details with you as soon as I can.

How do you recharge yourself? Do you have a special place or time when you make relaxing an self nurturing a priority?
