For the third year in a row, Four Seasons Hotel Austin is thrilled to join together with other Four Seasons hotels and resorts, as well as thousands of spas and health organizations worldwide, to celebrate Global Wellness Day.
Based on the simple premise of increasing global consciousness of living a better life, Global Wellness Day 2017 takes place Saturday, June 10 and will feature a variety of complimentary activities and amenities at Four Seasons Hotel Austin, including:
Yoga on the Lawn (7:00 am)
Yoga enthusiasts will be able to greet the day with a little namaste thanks to a morning yoga session with Wanderlust Yoga. The 60-minute Vinyasa session will start at 7:00 am on the Hotel’s back lawn and is limited to 30 people. Participation is complimentary, however donations benefiting Austin Pets Alive! will be accepted.
Guided Walk/Run Sponsored by lululemon (8:00 am)
During this three-mile guided walk/run, locals and guests will be able to get their heart rate going while getting out on Austin’s scenic Lady Bird Lake trail. Hosted in partnership with lululemon, the activity will depart from the Hotel’s back lawn at 8:00 am and conclude with a short meditation cool down. Adding to the fun, the first 50 people to RSVP for the walk/run on Eventbrite will receive a complimentary lululemon water bottle.
Adopt-a-Puppy Event with Austin Humane Society (8:00 to 11:00 am)
According to studies, pets are like a prescription for a happier, healthier life. With this in mind, the Hotel is teaming up with the Austin Humane Society to match adorable, adoptable puppies with their would-be owners. From 8:00 to 11:00 am, guests and locals will be able to coo over and cuddle with – plus immediately adopt – several puppies, giving them the potential for a lifelong furry friend with (health) benefits.
Mini emerginC Treatments (8:00 to 11:00 am)
Visitors will be able to turn back the clock on their skin with help from emerginC, a leading anti-aging skincare brand found in The Spa. To showcase their powerful products, Four Seasons aestheticians will be on hand to provide mini-treatments on the lawn from 8:00 to 11:00 am.
Inspiration Station (9:00 am to 12:00 noon)
According to studies, coloring and other forms of creative expression are known to improve concentration and decrease stress. With this in mind, guests will be able to unload their stress and unleash their inner artists at a complimentary Inspiration Station – featuring Austin- and nature-themed coloring pages and crayons – on the back lawn from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.
Buddha’s Brew Kombucha Tasting (9:00 am to 12:00 noon)
Those curious about the Kombucha craze can sample three different types of the sweet tea superfood from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon on the lawn, courtesy of Austin-based Buddha’s Brew Kombucha.
lululemon Trunk Show in the Lobby (9:00 am to 12:00 noon)
The Hotel’s lobby will get a stylish makeover from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, when a lululemon pop-up shop featuring the line’s latest summer apparel takes over the space.=
Sunscreen Bartenders (11:00 am to 1:00 pm)
Feeling the burn is a great exercise philosophy, but not advisable when it comes to skincare. To protect guests from harmful UV rays, Supergoop! “sunscreen bartenders” will be offering complimentary sunscreen spritzes in the Hotel’s backyard from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. In addition, complimentary fruit popsicles will help keep pool guests cool from the inside out.
Healthy Treats in TRIO (11:00 am to 11:00 pm)
In addition to the downtown Austin restaurant’s regular vegan menu, TRIO will feature a healthy Compressed Watermelon Salad for lunch and dinner on Global Wellness Day. Made with mango “yolks,” sunflower seeds, baby arugula and avocado mousse, the $15 dish will be served in memorable style on a pink Himalayan salt block.
Sleep Station (9:00 to 11:00 pm)
A full night’s rest is restorative, yet nearly a third of adults find sleep elusive. Guests staying over Global Wellness Day will find it easy to turn R.E.M. into a reality thanks to a complimentary Wind Down Station featuring tea, tea biscuits, eye masks and ear plugs from 9:00 to 11:00 pm in the Lobby.
Booze with Benefits (June 1-30, 2017)
Moderation is key, but we like to think a drink a day keeps the doctor away. Aiding in that endeavor is the Lobby Lounge and its Global Wellness Day-inspired “Last in the Garden” cocktail, featuring coriander-infused Tito’s Vodka, dry Orange Curaçao, red bell pepper simple syrup, honeydew juice and a splash of lime. Served in a Himalayan salt glass, the $14 drink will be available through the end of June.
Founded in 2011 by Belgin Aksoy, a thyroid cancer survivor from Istanbul, Global Wellness Day is intended to remind the entire world of the importance of living well, encompassing everything from exercise and beauty treatments, spiritual teachings and ways of thinking, to the harmony between body and spirit. The social movement, which is devoid of any commercial purpose, is celebrated around the world on the second Saturday of June every year.More posts from June 2017
