Countless scientific studies have proven the health benefits of vacations. But it’s not like you need another reason to start booking your next respite! Looking for a relaxing retreat this fall? We stumbled across a yoga event that may be just the ticket.
Kristin McGee, who has shared her yoga know-how with Tina Fey, Bethenny Frankel and Steve Martin—not to mention FITNESS readers!—is hosting “the ultimate yoga weekend” beginning November 10. The three or four-day retreat offers yogis the opportunity to train closely with McGee herself and receive a customized yoga routine based on your specific goals. Participants will be treated like stars with two yoga classes per day and a massage at the Tides Zihuatanejo, a resort in Playa la Ropa, Mexico.
