Their Zen Horse Sunset Yoga experience received the most votes by ISPA members. The Four Season Lana'i Zen Horse Sunset Yoga experience provides a chance for humans and horses to connect in the natural world, enjoying yoga, meditation, and a shared space. Taking place at sunset, this new and innovative service allows guests to experience yoga with horses in their natural environment. "We are absolutely delighted to receive this honor," says Spa Director Shaw Cote. "We have been dedicated to creating exceptional experiences that weave in aspects of our secluded paradise for a richer visit. Zen Horse Sunset Yoga came out of a desire to bring a deeply personal yoga practice into a truly magical backdrop shared with our sentient horses, just as the sun sets behind pine tree-ringed pastures." The ISPA Innovate Awards are designed to recognize members who lead the way with groundbreaking innovations that advance the spa industry.

Careful What You Clear Laser treatments can be like a magic wand—resurfacing skin, reducing hyperpigmentation, and removing unwanted hair. But pay attention to what you're erasing. "If you're the person firing that laser and you don't know the difference between a sunspot and a superficial melanoma, that laser is going to get rid of the color on all of them and now you just removed the only clinical sign of that melanoma that the doctor will have," says dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla, MD. Proper training and certification are key. For a list of advanced training facilities across the country, flip over this special issue!
