What do you get when you mix the high-quality natural goodness of Whole Foods with the unbelievable health and wellness experience of Miraval Resort & Spa? What if I told you an amazing once-in-a-lifetime travel experience perfect for the active foodie? Recently, Miraval announced its new experiential travel series with Whole Journeys, Whole Foods Market’s new travel company and frankly, we couldn’t be more excited!
Guests of the intimate tours will experience hands-on interactions with local chefs, farmers, producers, and food artisans (staples of the Whole Journeys tours) but with an infusion of Miraval through daily yoga and meditation, allowing them to travel mindfully – to be truly present in each adventure. The two Whole Journeys with Miraval curated excursions (one takes place in Pachamama, Peru and the other in Tuscany, Italy) promote a total mind-body wellness and are led by MaryGrace Naughton, Miraval’s own specialist in yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.
You’ll have the opportunity to hike amidst breathtaking scenery, cook with the locals, and experience these amazing destinations in an entirely unique way, while promoting a personal exploration though daily mindfulness workshops including Energy Yoga and Loving-Kindness meditation – which is what truly sets Whole Journeys tours apart from the myriad of others available.
No stranger to exploring the world mindfully, Miraval launched its own Miraval Journeys last year, “to give our guests the chance to explore the world mindfully, showing that travel doesn’t have to be stressful, and that it can be a meditative and wholly enriching experience,” says Michael G. Tompkins, President and CEO of Miraval. The recent partnership with Whole Journeys was a logical and synergistic pairing. “We are both motivated to provide incredible, life-changing opportunities that encourage a healthy and balanced lifestyle,” explains Tompkins.
