Revive and Renew
Seaside Cycle and Yoga
Start the day with a low-impact workout while listening to energizing tunes. The Seaside Cycle class, held at the Fitness Center’s ocean front terrace (think sweeping ocean views), is intended for all levels. Afterwards, restore mind balance and gently stretch tired, achy muscles with Seaside Yoga. Combining thoughtful body postures and breathing exercises, the class is designed to eliminate stress and promote flexibility. Finish by setting an intention for the day and drift away with a few minutes of mindful meditation.
Guided Nature Walk
The Palos Verdes coastline is one of the most postcard-worthy in Southern California, with views of Catalina Island and sea life spanning whales and dolphins. It’s also home to countless wildflowers, native plants, birds and butterflies. Get in tune with nature and experience a two-hour guided hike with designated viewing stops including the oceanside trails and the Terranea Sea Salt Conservatory. Learn about the local residents including birds such as the California gnatcatcher and Allen’s hummingbird, and the El Segundo blue butterfly.
Grab a seat by the fire pit (or a lounge chair or cabana by the pool) and choose from healthful selections such as a farro bowl with charred avocado, pickled turmeric onions, roasted vegetables and cashew cream; or shrimp zucchini pasta with zucchini noodles, olives, garlic, basil, cherry tomatoes, olive oil and shaved parmesan. The resort’s resident nutritionist is instrumental in the creation of newly opened wellness eatery solviva’s dining menu, which has offerings that accommodate all diet types, including gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan.
Inside & Out
As the name implies, this mind and body journey is replete with contrast therapy and mineralizing clay to accelerate detoxification. The ritual commences with an herbal wrap followed by a temperature-cooling friction scrub. Next enjoy a warming session in the in-suite infrared sauna, followed by a cooling, invigorating rinse in a Swiss shower. Conclude with an application of red algae moisturizer—a mineral-rich antioxidant containing vitamin B12 with benefits from hydration to healing and improving skin function.
Finish your day looking your best. The talented stylists in the salon provide you with a perfect polish or hair service that makes the day complete. Radiant, relaxed and refreshed!
