Help your executive team kick-start personal wellness with an inspiring weekend of nutrition and fitness education at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village, home of the California Health & Longevity Institute (CHLI). The hotel’s immersive, four-day Signature Retreat - a winning combination of Four Seasons luxury and CHLI’s state-of-the-art technology - includes curated workshop experiences, cooking classes, and personalized workouts that inspire optimal health, weight loss, and lifestyle changes.
Customized to each participant and based on a pre-program health assessment and phone consultation with an expert nutritionist, the retreat entails an hour-to-hour scheduled itinerary with workshops led by highly trained nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle experts. Workshops are designed to provide tools to form positive, internal dialogues that assist in making better daily decisions and creating lifelong health management skills.
Also included: CHLI’s large and welcoming wellness kitchen in which participants learn to create their own healthy meals, a light-filled dining room in which to dine, a cozy living room in which to gather, a yoga/mediation studio in which to explore new forms of relaxation, a spectacular outdoor yoga pagoda set within the park-like landscape, and of course a luxurious guest room outfitted with the sumptuous Four Seasons Bed. And for those seeking additional forms of tranquility within the few hours of allotted personal time, the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village – the largest within the Four Seasons family with its 28 treatment rooms - offers a menu of pampering options.
Leading the retreat is Paulette Lambert, CHLI’s dynamic nutrition director, whose wise counsel combines with the fitness instruction of the hotel’s on-site exercise physiologists to create motivation that lasts long after retreat’s end. During three hands-on culinary experiences (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), Lambert and her team expertly convey a passion for healthy foods and instruct on how to weather nutrition misinformation storms. She also coaches, during a dinner out at the resort’s new Coin & Candor restaurant, on how to order healthfully off of a menu.
Mental and physical fitness play just as a large a role throughout the weekend; meditation and yoga sessions, circuit training, and canyon hikes provide the inspiration needed to keep-up the good work at home.
