La Quinta Palm Springs Fitness

Nestled at the base of the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains, the iconic La Quinta Resort has been a personal refuge for Hollywood celebrities, business leaders, and world travelers since 1926.

The peace and tranquility of our desert oasis provides the ideal setting for the resort’s new Yoga and Mindfulness retreat programs. Whether you’re a Yoga teacher with students, a CEO with employees, or simply someone who is seeking to escape the distractions of everyday life, our Yoga and Mindfulness team, led by acclaimed wellness expert Dr. Eden Goldman, will guide you on a transformative journey to help you reframe your “inner world.”


In the traditions of Yoga and Mindfulness, it has been said “practice and all is coming.” Essentially, our personal daily rituals in life form habits and patterns that influence how we see the world. During your retreat, you will have the opportunity to step outside yourself and your samskaras (habitual mental impressions) in order to practice developing harmonious lifestyle patterns that will better support you in living the life you’ve always dreamed of centered in balance, compassion, focus, awareness, and peace and kindness for yourself and others.

A fundamental teaching of yoga and mindfulness is the importance of taking care of our bodies as we would a sacred temple. When we learn to meditate upon and listen to the subtle messages our bodies are sharing with us through sensations, we can better tune in to its needs and offer the appropriate “blessings” back to our temple. Our retreats offer guests a collection of services and amenities to revitalize and refresh that blessed relationship we all share with our body temples, including:

  • Special vegetarian-oriented menus prepared by our award-winning culinary team
  • Delicious and nutritious juice cleansing and detox options
  • Revitalizing treatments at our world-class Spa La Quinta

Free time is a luxury in the modern world. One of the best ways you can escape and let go of life’s challenges is by retreating to a deeper level of relaxation within yourself. Let us help you find a deeper state of relaxation while on retreat on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Practice and meditate at one of our incredible indoor/outdoor Yoga locations, soak in the sun at one of our 41pools, or bask in the stunning glory of the natural beauty of the desert that surrounds you.

Our resort’s awe-inspiring grounds, filled with acres of lush greenery and palm trees, blooming bougainvillea, aromatic citrus, and magnificent sunsets, create a magical ambiance that encourages both inner and outer exploration.

Become inspired by the desert landscape or immerse yourself in new experiences whenever you’d like a break from the retreat’s “inner work.” Our team can complement your retreat with additional activities and excursions that include:

  • Hiking in Indian Canyon or Joshua Tree Park
  • Desert horseback riding
  • Vegetarian cooking classes
  • Sound bath healings
  • Float pods
  • Pottery classes
  • Wind energy tours
  • Palm Springs aerial tramway
  • Arts and crafts
  • Yoga + Wine
  • Local hot mineral springs
