Seeking Wellness At
The Chopra Center
Jane Coloccia, Wellness Patrol
Anyone who has explored spirituality or the mind and body connection will, no doubt, have come across articles or videos of Dr. Deepak Chopra. What you may not know is that he has his own retreat center, The Chopra Center, in Carlsbad, California, just north of San Diego.
The Chopra Center is a wonderful place to visit — you can just go for a spa treatment, there is a great shop with all sorts of goodies from books and spiritual jewelry, decorative items, wellness products, clothing, and more — or you can opt for a special retreat at The Chopra Center focused on wellness.
Throughout the year, Deepak Chopra hosts a limited number of seminars and workshops — either at The Chopra Center, which is on the grounds of the Omni La Costa resort — or at other special spots around the country. And while not all of the retreats, meditation workshops, and wellness programs feature Dr. Chopra in person, his teachings are definitely present in all of the retreats offered.
One retreat for those who want to have a total immersion in wellness is the 6-Day Perfect Health Retreat. In this over complicated, always connected world, perhaps more of us should consider good self care and get away for six days to focus on our own well being.
The 6-Day Perfect Health Retreat focuses on a highly trained team of medical doctors and healing arts masters who create a transformative experience completely customized for each participant. During this time you will detox, de-stress, and heal your entire being with a schedule of restorative medicine, yoga, luxury spa services, the center’s signature Ayurvedic cleanse, nourishing Ayurvedic meals, one-on-one guidance, and total rejuvenation. Offered on a weekly basis year round, space is limited.
Your days will be filled with a variety of activities including meditation, chair yoga, sunrise yoga, Ayurvedic Bodywork, discussions on emotions, classes on exploring the subconscious, Groove Movement Classes, and more.
Prices for the 6-Day Perfect Health Retreat are $3,995 per person including 6 Spa Treatments, medical consultation, the cleanse, daily immersive experiences on creating perfect health, daily meditation and yoga, daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner, unlimited access to Omni La Costa Spa, and more. Hotel accommodations are additional.
The Chopra Center even offers online courses for those who might not be able to make it out to California in person.
