Global Wellness Day is a special day that reminds the entire world of the importance of living well, encompassing everything from exercise and beauty treatments to spiritual teachings and ways of thinking, and the harmony between body and spirit. This is a social movement without any commercial purpose, celebrated around the world on the second Saturday of June every year. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts decided to partner with Global Wellness Day to highlight the company's vast wellness initiatives and outstanding Spas within the portfolio.
"We all want to be healthy, look good and live a good life, both physically and spiritually," says Belgin Askoy, Global Wellness Day Founder. "Four Seasons shares these values and we are thrilled that they are supporting this worldwide initiative."
Wellness at The Spa
Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills has secured famed yogi and wellness ambassador Rainbeau Mars to lead a Sunrise Yoga session on the Hotel's rooftop helicopter pad. This will be the first time in the history of the Hotel for an event to be conducted on the exclusive helipad, which features 180 degree views of the city. Charlene Florian from the Kerstin Florian spa line, who has been involved with Global Wellness Day since its inception, will lead a wellness talk after the Sunrise Yoga. In addition, the exclusive energy healer Jeannette von Johnsbach from the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles will lead a group BioMeditation class. The day will conclude in the afternoon with a Blue Fusion Class by celebrity trainers from Blue Clay Fitness.
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles will also donate USD 10 from each Summer Citrus Detox treatment on June 13 to Global Green, a leading pan-global environmental charity supported avidly by many guests of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, including celebrities. The organic treatment uses orange lemongrass oil incorporated with coconut, jojoba and GMO-free soy, with a unique method of silicon cupping to encourage a body detox with a slimming effect.
