Pre-COVID-19 pandemic, Southern California’s Laguna Beach announced its Pathway to Zen, a marriage of the area’s natural beauty and local self-care and wellness experiences designed to help visitors refresh and rejuvenate. The pathway consists of 12 separate locations that, combined, make up a first-of-its-kind wellness trail.
Along this carefully curated path, you can take part in a number of different experiences, such as invigorating hikes, yoga, shopping and massages, al hosted by local businesses that emphasize organic products, holistic techniques and a strong connection with nature.
There are two separate yoga courses along the trail, Laughter Yoga and Yoga in the Park. Laughter Yoga, hosted by the Laughter Club, recognizes laughter as a form of exercise and uses it to create an experience that works your muscles and fosters good moods and kindness. Yoga in the Park offers a yoga class in an unbelievable setting — on a bluff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. With the sun shining on your face and a cool ocean breeze washing away the stress, you will come away ready to take on the day.
A visit to the Chakra Spa for a chakra balance and crystal massage is a soothing and relaxing way to find your balance while the Sycamore Spa and the Spa Montage offer the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation treatments.
Thrive Vitamin Drips and Shots offers a unique experience — intravenous vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Treatments are designed for immunity, beauty and energy. They even offer a treatment for hangovers.
The Pathway also includes a farmers market and dining options, where you can shop for locally grown organic produce or enjoy a meal from one of Laguna’s fan-favorite restaurants like The Stand or Zinc Cafe.
The Pathway is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of Laguna Beach while invigorating your mind, body and soul.
