Because You No Longer Need to Go West For Wellness
California and Arizona have traditionally been the favored spots for a serious mind-body reboot. Now this bucolic patch of Massachusetts, renowned for such cultural institutions as Tanglewood, Jacob’sPillow, and Mass MoCA, is picking up the wellness mantle. A hiker’s paradise with many miles of forested trails and five ski areas, it is already home to two destination retreats: the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge and Canyon Ranch Lenox. Next summer Miraval in the Berkshires, which has outposts in Tucson and Austin, comes toLenox too. This is big: There will be golf and Miraval’s signature equestrian therapy program, and, unlike Kripalu and Canyon Ranch, Miraval will serve alcohol. So much for ye olde New England Puritanism.
