There, through the end of the September, guests could take part in a remote yoga retreat (starting at $775 per person) that involved a helicopter trip to a private location—from the top of the 4,500-foot Ursus Mountain to a secluded island beach to an isolated deep forest retreat. They are assigned a private Vinyasa instructor and served a locally sourced five-star spa lunch or wine-paired dinner, complete with white-linen service, in the splendor of each setting, providing the ultimate in elegant and alfresco ananda.

The wellness continues in the restorative, rustic luxury with offerings available at The Healing Grounds Spa. Guests can select from a range of massage modalities, body treatments, and facials incorporating Yon-Ka Paris and Ancient Secrets products. The Ancient Secrets line uses natural ingredients selected for their holistic healing benefits and with a connection to the region. Stand-out ingredients include Canadian glacial clay, sustainably harvested Pacific organic seaweed, and more.
