When you are researching a vacation resort, do you look up the fitness/wellness options that are available? We attended the Encanterra Country Club Resort Community Live Well, Wellness Fair to learn about their “live a happier and healthier life” options. The half a day event showcased the fitness and relaxation activities.
Alvea Spa is located within the Encanterra Country Club Resort Community. They hosted a booth today to share their variety of services.
- Chair Massages
- Aroma Therapy
I have visited the Alvea Spa for many services and my favorite is getting an hour-long pedicure. There are very relaxing. There is something great about having my feet massaged.
Culinary Team of Encanterra
Encanterra Country Club Resort Community has 2 main restaurants, 1 breakfast restaurant, and 2 poolside restaurant/bars. Today they provided juicing recipes and demonstrations of healthy tasting juicing.
There was another table where we could sample the different protein balls. I forgot what the representative said each one was made up of. However, I do know that they all tasted good.
We wore our fitness clothes and bought our yoga mats. The three wellness classes took place on the soft green space overlooking the expansive 18-hole golf course and lakes.
It had been a long time since I attended a Tai Chi class. It felt good to perform a relaxing routine. Per the class description, “An ancient form of Chinese exercise of slow, beautiful, relaxed movements that develops a sense of balance and harmony between mind and body. Improve flexibility, coordination, concentration, balance, endurance, stamina and strength – all while helping to relieve stress.” Have you taken a Tai Chi class?
This was my first time in a POUND class. We received 2 POUND Sticks as we either stood or sat on the yoga mats. Then we followed along with the instructor pounding the sticks on the mats and clicking them together. The class description mentions, “Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements.” We created some great music. Would you take this class if it was offered at the resort you were staying at?
Our final fitness class of the day was with a line dance class. We learned so many fun dances to songs such as Uptown Funk and Fireball. Our instructor provided very simple explanations of steps as the songs played. It appeared that everyone was having a fun time.
