Wellness Wonderland

Set on 256 rolling acres among the foothills of Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains, Eupepsia Wellness Center opened last May with a mission to give guests a chance to focus on their bodies, minds and spirits, whether on a weekslong, weekend or one-day visit. The center embraces the science and philosophy of Ayurveda, a holistic approach to health that originated thousands of years ago. Offerings are tailored to each guest’s health and fitness goals, and might include yoga and meditation classes, health screenings, spa treatments and nutrition workshops that help you shed winter weight.

Eupepsia’s 26 guest rooms are simply yet elegantly decorated in slate gray and yellows, and include either a king or two twin beds. Tennis courts, a fitness center with sport courts, a movie lounge and a relaxing outdoor pergola are among the amenities.

A two-night wellness retreat starts at $548 per person and includes meals, yoga and other activities, and access to the spa and fitness center. The cost of treatments and workshops are extra. One- and two-week programs are also available.
