During the month of January, Travaasa is focusing on the vibrancy that comes with the New Year by creating a series of classes and programming dedicated to celebrating personal growth and energizing the mind and body. With some fabulous new spa treatments, private life coaching sessions and fresh culinary flavors, January looks like a promising month of renewed energy and an inspirational start to the New Year.

Health & Wellness:

New this year, certified life coach, adventure guide, and applied improvisation consultant, Josh Krilov, will be leading life coaching sessions that will teach guests how to push the pause button on life and learn simple, practical ways to feel more joyful and alive again. Josh has a serious passion for inspiring people to reach their full potential and is committed to teaching techniques and principles to upgrade communication, creativity, and relationships. “People who work with me one-on-one in a coaching session are usually surprised by how much progress they can make in less than an hour. My goal as a life coach is to help you leave the session feeling like it was a great use of your time. I actively listen and ask thought-provoking questions while also staying present and in the moment. This process shifts one’s perspective, allowing for new growth to make its way into your life.” Josh regularly facilitates workshops on applying simple, practical strategies to feel more joyful and works with couples on building stronger relationships.


It’s no secret that the culinary staff is a little bit obsessed with creating the perfect community atmosphere through delicious food and good conversation at the dinner table. Sharing your story over a great meal at the family dinner table is one of the most magical times of the day at Travaasa Austin. To celebrate the energy that comes with the New Year, Travaasa Austin will host their annual New Year’s Eve Dinner complete with a traditional New Years countdown and of course, a toast! Guests are invited to listen to live entertainment while enjoying a three-course meal followed by s’mores around the fire.


A visit to the Travaasa spa goes far beyond pampering and indulgence. Our spa treatments reflect our passion for the human body and the ability of plants and essential oils to naturally treat, heal and revitalize the soul. So of course, with the New Year come revitalizing new spa treatments to invigorate your senses! More information is soon to come on these fabulous additions.
