I will be in San Diego by myself for 7 days in August. I have no obligations to anyone on how to spend my time, and I will be there alone. I'll be staying in Mira Mesa, but will have a car and can go anywhere in the area.
I'd like to spend my time meditating and possible doing gentle forms of yoga (no yoga kickboxing fusion). I have been following Jon Kabat-Zinn's mindfulness meditation program (45 minute body scan with his CDs as often as I can, usually 3-4 times a week) for a few weeks, so it is possible for me to meditate by myself, but I would really prefer to participate in classes, guided meditations, or group meditations of some kind. Ditto for yoga - I'm interested in group classes for relaxing and spiritual yoga (not workout yoga). I'd also love to hear suggestions on beautiful / inspiring places to walk in and sit quietly. All of these can be anywhere in the SD metro area (North City down to Chula Vista on the N-S axis, the ocean to 15 on the E-W axis). As a bonus, any suggestions (high or low prices) for relaxing massage / spa treatments in the area?
So I'm interested in:
in San Diego. Woo or not woo places alike are appreciated.
