According to Lake Austin Spa Resort’s General Manger Tracy York, one of their greatest pleasures is offering women the opportunity to have time to themselves.  They aim to teach these women how to live healthier and more balanced lives on a daily basis. “We do this by trying to take care of their every need and by offering activities that inspire creativity, encourage good rest and educate on healthy living,” York said.

Guests have the option of staying anywhere from two to seven nights in the cozy accommodations on Lake Austin’s gorgeous waterway. In addition to the myriad of fitness activities available to guests, Lake Austin offers some fantastic programs geared to all different interests. York said their four most popular programs are; "Breathe", "Quench", "The Culinary Experience" and "Mother, Daughter, Sisters and Friends".

Breathe: This is a new, meditation-based program that focuses on silencing the constant chatter in your mind. They want you to learn how to step away from technology and just live in the moment. This program is for all meditation skill levels. Some of their different meditation practices offered during Breathe week are; "Heart Focused Meditation", "Yoga on the Stand Up Paddle Boards", "Float to Relax" and  "Guided Imagery and Breathing Meditation".

Quench: The resort uses both the Lake Austin waterway it’s located on, and their Olympic sized lap pool to offer its guests all different types of water activities and exercises. These include paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. and they feature Olympic athletes and water exercise experts as guest instructors.


The Culinary Experience: A whole program focused on food? No wonder it’s so popular! The Culinary Experience is a monthly program that offers healthy food preparation cooking classes and wine, cheese and chocolate tastings. They have all different activities, such as "Adventures in Cocktail Gardening", "All About Olive Oil", "Guided Organic Garden Tour", "Knife Skills" and "Health Benefits of Tea and Tasting".

Mother, Daughter, Sisters and Friends: This program focuses on enhancing these relationships through special speakers, insightful topics, fun activities and a week away with one another.
