Wellness Events

Global Wellness Day at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village launches with a Sunrise Cycle group lead by General Manager Robert Cima.  An avid cyclist, Cima will lead the pack on a challenging yet comfortable ride, amongst the scenic roads of Westlake Village.

Los Angeles-based health and wellness expert and lifestyle blogger Sophie Jaffe will lead two morning outdoor yoga classes on the Hotel’s beautiful Pagoda Lawn. Sophie is a certified yoga instructor and raw food chef who runs wellness-based company Philosophie with the goal of making health and wellness accessible, easy and enjoyable.

Following yoga, an exclusive VIMMIA Activewear pop-up shop will be available to all Global Wellness Day participants. VIMMIA’s luxe workout wear provides precision fits, exceptional detailing, and technical properties that include thermoregulation, moisture wicking, and improved oxygenation to muscles.

Two Morning Mindfulness meditation sessions will offer a state of alert, focused relaxation and a great place to help set a purposeful intention for the day.

Dr. Jonathan Cole, Medical Director and Managing Partner of California Health & Longevity Institute, will host four different “Tea Talks,” covering a wide variety of topics including how to stay healthy while travelling and breast cancer prevention, to name a few.  An assortment of fine teas will be served.

CHLI’s Director of Nutrition Paulette Lambert, RD, CDE, will lead four fun and interactive culinary demonstrations in the open-concept Wellness Kitchen.  Each 30 minute session focuses on making healthful and family-friendly items that are easy to prepare.  Topics include Breakfast Bars, Super Greens, Sustainable Thai Curry and an Anti-Oxidant Berry Crisp so good it’s hard to believe it’s healthy too.

The award-winning Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village will be featuring the Lavender Milk Cocoon Wrap, a comprehensive whole-body treatment that restores the glow of health. It begins with a whole-grain and organic oil body buff to increase skin vibrancy and stimulate circulation. Next, a velvety blend of pure honey and warm lavender milk creates a nourishing cocoon that feeds the skin and renews its elasticity. Finally, a lavish full-body massage using pure herb and lavender cream establishes a state of deep relaxation. This treatment lasts a blissful 100 minutes and costs USD 335.
