Alisal Ranch–the award-winning luxury dude ranch spanning 10,500 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley–invites guests and visitors to kick off the new year with its inaugural Wellness Weekend, held January 5-7, 2024. The multi-day itinerary includes activities and experiences curated to promote relaxation, unwinding, and resetting after the holidays. Weekend programming includes yoga, meditation, a sound bath, a cooking demonstration, and hiking, with a-la-carte options available at an additional cost, like an essential oil class and equine therapy.
As home to more than 100 horses, Alisal Ranch’s equine therapy, hosted by Core Connection, allows guests to work directly with the animals and explore the human-horse connection. It encourages guests to learn about oneself, using the horse for feedback as a guide to exploring relational patterns, experimenting with different ways to ask for support, set boundaries, as well as give or receive affection and attention. Horses are direct communicators and are particularly talented in reading the energy in the environment, lending themselves to be able to teach humans about interacting in inter- and intra-personal relationships.
In addition to the Wellness Weekend activities (sunset gentle flow yin yoga, wine tasting, guided hike, and sound bath), Alisal Ranch’s regular activities will be offered throughout the weekend, including horseback riding, golf, archery, boating, and more. For the Wellness Weekend, Alisal Ranch is proud to welcome:
