A new fitness experience debuted during Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit’s Wellness Getaway earlier this month: Antigravity yoga. While suspended in the Harrison Antigravity Hammock, the combination of exercises is intended to decompress the spine and joints. The class also enhances posture by aligning the body from head to toe and increases overall health and physical agility.
Antigravity yoga is just one of the wellness amenities and services available, which also includes dedicated Wellness Suites with private spa spaces, a personal trainer, in-suite Lifecycle recumbent bicycle and exercise kit, organic handmade soaps and vitamin C shower, and a consultation with the chef to personalize menus. Included complimentary in the nightly rate, the Antigravity yoga classes are offered Monday through Friday at the resort.
Earlier this month, during the Wellness Getaway, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit hosted fitness classes like Soul Yoga, as well as a therapeutic concert, Buddhist meditation, tea tasting by Mexican Tea Master Olivia Medina de Eurote, a class on wellness for cancer and aging, and juice therapy. Special guest Robyn Webb, award-winning cookbook author, nutritionist and culinary instructor the University of Miami (FL), gave cooking demonstrations on sumptuous salads and versatile vegetarian dishes. Brooklyn, NY-native Laura Colon led the Antigravity yoga classes during the Wellness Getaway. A Level 5 Certified, 2 Star Instructor Trainer, Colon received her certification from AntiGravity Founder, Christopher Harrison and other Master Instructors. She has now certified the yoga instructors at the resort to lead Antigravity yoga classes on an ongoing basis.
Resort rates start at $319 per person per night, based on double occupancy. The Grand Velas resort’s all- inclusive rates include luxury accommodations, a la carte gourmet meals at a variety of specialty restaurants, premium branded beverages, 24-hour in-suite service, taxes, gratuity and more.
