Renowned destination resort Miraval Resort & Spa, located in Tucson, AZ, recently announced that it will be adding 20 new health and wellness programs to its already robust list of over 200 wellness offerings. The new interactive classes, workshops and lectures were each carefully designed to teach guests ways by which to live happier, healthier and more mindful lives, as well as to reflect Miraval’s core philosophy of living life in the moment.

“For over 20 years, Miraval has been considered an industry leader and a pioneer in health, wellness and spa,” said Sue Adkins, Vice President of Programs. “Every day our specialists work tirelessly to make sure that we are integrating the most current research, industry trends and feedback from our guests to create the very best wellness programming.”

Launching in Summer 2016, the innovative new programming at Miraval includes:

  • Aqua Rhythm: This exciting, new fitness class utilizes plastic drumsticks to chisel shoulders, arms and core underwater, while tapping to the rhythm of the music above the water.
  • BODYSHRED: This high-intensity, metabolic conditioning workout utilizes a 3-2-1 interval approach to whole body training: three minutes of strength, two minutes of cardio, then one minute of abs.
  • DaVinci Body Boards, Level 2: This new class takes a full-body resistance band workout to a whole new level with a weighted body bar, BoSu, and/or medicine balls.
  • Gentle Waves: This class increases flexibility and mobility throughout the body with gentle, flowing movements in the water.

  • Rip Tide: This class alternates high-intensity cardio with slow, deep and powerful strength exercises using resistance tubing, hand weights and aqua noodles.
  • Turbulent Waters: Using nothing more than bodyweight, viscosity and the drag of water, this challenging class combines cardio and toning for the ultimate workout.
