In observance of the fifth annual Global Wellness Day on Saturday, June 11, 2016, Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort is encouraging guests to “Say Yes!” to wellness, with fitness classes and special menu options designed to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Global Wellness Day reminds the entire world of the importance of living well, encompassing everything from exercise and spa treatments to 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.
During the weekend of Global Wellness Day, June 10-12, 2016, there are several ways Four Seasons Resort Orlando is celebrating the occasion:
At the Spa
The highlight of Global Wellness Day at Four Seasons Resort Orlando will be at The Spa, with special guest activities from lululemon athletica, which will provide two complimentary outdoor yoga classes to celebrate Global Wellness Day at the Resort. Yoga classes will be held on June 11 at 9:30 am and 11:30 am, and rhythmic drumming classes will be held at 10:30 am and 11:30 am. The drum circle will take place on the Spa Lawn and will promote camaraderie and wellbeing. Drumming has been proven to promote physiological and psychological benefits that reduce stress, nurture togetherness and provide great exercise and fun.
In addition, there will be a pop up trunk show for lululemon in The Spa, from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm, where attendees and guests can shop the latest fitness apparel from lululemon.Post-class, guests have the option of enjoying a delicious farmer’s market lunch created by the culinary team at Four Seasons Resort Orlando. A fresh salad bar with numerous house-made dressings and fresh-squeezed juices will be available for purchase.
Participants must reserve their spot in the classes via an online registration. While classes are complimentary to participate, space is limited and reservations are required.
