The city of Miami is known for its vibrant neighborhoods and rich culture, while its people are known for their passion for health and fitness. Four Seasons Hotel Miami recognizes the power of the perfect balance of mind and body and is encouraging Hotel guests, visitors and employees to join in on their initiatives. Global Wellness Day, founded in 2012 and celebrated in 130 countries, is dedicated to promoting physical and mental well-being while continuing to grow awareness of the value of each human life.
Wellness Activities – June 8, 2019
In honor of the special day, Four Seasons Hotel Miami offers unique weekend programming to celebrate through fitness and wellness. Hotel guests, visitors, and members of Equinox– the Hotel’s in house premier fitness center, are encouraged to take part in three unique classes offered Saturday, June 8, 2019 led by certified Equinox instructors. The celebration begins with a serene sunrise Yoga class at 7:00 am on the Hotel’s prominent two acre pool terrace, followed by a 9:00 am ViPR pool workout—a combination of strength training and fat burning—that will take place inside the Hotel’s grand outdoor pool (swimwear required). For an upbeat workout, guests can take part in the 12:30 pm Zumba class located on the ground floor entrance of the Hotel with views of Brickell Avenue as guests tone and sculpt to a live DJ playing the trendiest Latin tunes. After each class, participants can quench their thirst with samples of Non Prophet Kombucha, a refreshing health aid, while enjoying complimentary samples of homemade açaí bowls, with the option to upgrade to a full size portion.
Wellness in Food & Beverage
From June 3-8, 2019, EDGE Steak & Bar will honor Global Wellness Day with a special three course lunch break menu that will include healthy and seasonal alternatives. Guests can start with an almond and chickpea hummus with heirloom carrot salad, and toasted buckwheat groats as an appetizer, green jackfruit enchiladas with pasilla pepper, dark chocolate moles, and chayote mint salad for a main entrée, and end on a sweet note with a cucumber mint granite with almond milk sorbet, avocado mousse, and gluten-free crumble for dessert. On Sunday, June 9, the EDGE Steak & Bar weekly Sunday Brunch will include a variety of healthy options on the a la carte menu. In addition, Swank Specialty Produce, a hydroponic and sustainable produce farm in Florida, has been selected as the featured artisan of the month. An eye catching display of gluten-free and vegan dishes will be featured, including a radish carpaccio with micro purple radish, nepitella and lemon vinaigrette, and macerated strawberries with beet gel, cinnamon basil and garden flowers. These dishes, along with others, will be featured on the additional station that will showcase Swank Specialty Produce for the remainder of their season.
Beginning Friday evening, June 7, 2019 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, Bahía, the poolside restaurant and lounge will kick off the wellness weekend with a Healthy Happy Hour on the tropical terrace. Guests can enjoy complimentary mini-massages by Equinox therapists, light healthy bites by Bahía and specially-priced low-calorie watermelon and basil caipiroskas. Throughout the weekend, Bahía will feature complimentary poolside amenities such as fresh fruit skewers and homemade smoothies for a healthy boost to all hotel guests. Hotel and non-hotel guests are welcome to treat themselves to an exclusive poolside Wellness Cabana package. The cabana will include a 60-minute single or couple’s massage by Equinox’s trained therapists, a Bahía fruit platter, and the choice of a watermelon and basil caipiroska pitcher or a make-your-own healthy mimosa with your choice of fresh juice. Cabana packages begin at $350++ for the day, for up to 4 guests, and can be reserved by calling (305) 358-3535.
Special Global Wellness Day Guest – June 9, 2019
The Hotel welcomes special guest Betina Dantas, founder of Ballet Fitness in honor of Global Wellness Day to offer her unique Ballet Fitness Class for Hotel guests and the public on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 8:00 am and 10:00 am. Betina studied in the Royal Academy of Dance, located in England where she mastered her craft and soon after, continued to travel throughout the world to contribute to her training. Betina created the Ballet Fitness method where she was able to combine the basic steps of the classic ballet with functional and aerobic exercises offering a safe and effective technique that allows her to embrace her passion for ballet. Beginners are encouraged to join the classes as guests can follow the steps without ever having prior practice. After the class, guests are welcome to enjoy complimentary Non Prophet Kombucha samples.
Wellness Starts Within
The Hotel will also offer wellness initiatives for employees, including a yoga and meditation class, healthy dishes in the employee cafeteria and complimentary mini massages from the Equinox experts. “We encourage our employees, visitors, and guests from around the globe to embrace the Miami lifestyle of health and fitness with these fun and unique offerings.
