Pritikin Longevity Center + SpaÂ at the Doral Golf resort is a beautiful private enclave with Italianate architecture, and is surrounded by 650 acres of tropical paradise. Amenities include swimming pools, five championship golf courses, tennis courts, and meditative labyrinths.
Pritikin’s believes a healthy mind can lead you to a healthy body â€“ and a much happier life. â€This transformation, which is part of emerging fields in psychology focused on mind-body health, is very important because it can greatly boost our chances of achieving what we want in life, including a fitter, healthier lifestyle. By changing our minds, we really can change our lives,â€ asserts Dr. Arvon.
One of the classes offered is Digital Detox. How many of us fall asleep with TV, computer or phone nearby? The stress and rays from these devices are causing our health to decline. The body reacts to the computer in lots of unseen ways. For example, rolling of the shoulders, shallow breathing and overeating. We also allow the devices to control the time in front of them not us taking control of our time.
The class gives lots of suggestions along with things to notice about our devices, there are here to stay and that is a good thing! However, we need to turn them off and re connect with the life we want to lead!
Some of the classes are mindful eating, better eating and exercising, healthy mind, take control of your health. The classes can be tailored to your needs or the needs of a group. Before classes, lunch was served overlooking the golf course. The food was very healthy and beautifully presented. It is a great place to get your mind and body in the shape you want!
