Winter in canyon country is a season of solace, peace and reflection and Amangiri provides an inspiring setting in which to reconnect with the environment and oneself. To coincide with Amangiri’s Season of Adventure and Rejuvenation, Amangiri will host yoga teacher Rocky Heron for a Yoga Retreat this winter.
Rocky Heron first found his way to yoga as a teenager through Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga in Santa Monica, California. Since then, he has studied yoga with some of the world’s leading yoga masters. Today Rocky teaches international retreats and workshops and is a senior instructor and teacher trainer at The Yoga Centre in San Luis Obispo, CA.
The Aman Spa at Amangiri is a 2,322-square meter (25,000-square feet) destination unto itself, providing a serene destination for relaxation and renewal. The Yoga Pavilion features bamboo floors and opens onto a canyon wall, while other facilities include: the Water Pavilion with steam rooms, sauna and hydrotherapy pools; the Fitness Center; five candlelit treatment rooms; two outdoor treatment terraces; and the Salon for manicures and pedicures. Outdoor activities under crisp blue skies in the resort’s breathtaking surrounds include horse riding, via ferrata climbing routes, hiking and mountain biking – all ideal complements to the daily yoga sessions.
