Thursday May 11th, I headed over to the Flagship Alo Yoga Store in Beverly Hills to check out the latest health and WELLth initiative for the Beverly Hills Conference and Visitors Bureau (Beverly Hills: City of WELLTH).
I love the play on words for “WELLth” insinuating that true wealth in life drive for money and possessions to a less materialistic and more valuable life currency that encompasses wellness and is exemplified by health, purpose and happiness acccording to mindbodygreen founder Jason Wachob. I could not agree more with the statement. Material possessions are great in life but the health and wellness of your mind, body and soul far outweigh any of that.
Supermodel Christie Brinkley was on hand as well. She has been a vegetarian since the age 14 and committed to an organic lifestyle. She stated that “A healthy, holistic lifestyle has been intrinsic to my long career in the fashion and beauty industry. A balanced approach to diet, exercise and mindfulness is the key to happiness and life long vitality. Wellness is glamorous!” One of her all-time favorite foods has always been artichokes. She said stated that to get people need exposure to nature to reignite their love and passion for health and wellness.
I had a blast listening to Jason Wachob leads a forum highlighting the WELLTH concept and what makes Beverly Hills the City ofWELLTH. Experts in each pillar that joined the wellness discussion included Caley Alyssa (MOVE), Matthey Kenney (EAT), Dana Claudat (RESTORE), James Duigan (GRATITUDE), and Charlie Knowles (EXPLORE).
The City of Beverly Hills will be showcasing a range of activities inspired by the pillars of WELLTH: Move, Eat, Restore, Gratitude and Explore. Hotels across the city are getting involved with unique WELLTH packages room and spa packages. These include: The Beverly Hills Hotel, The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Wilshire (A Four Seasons hotel), Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel, Montage Beverly Hills, The Peninsula Beverly Hills, SIXTY Beverly Hills, Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills and Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills (full details below.) lovebeverlyhills.com/wellth
Travelers will also be able to find out their 902*IQ through a fun, engaging and insightful quiz, hosted at lovebeverlyhills.com/quiz.Participants will be able to check their current wellthy lifestyle score.
“Beverly Hills has everything for the individual looking for a destination with wellbeing at its heart. WELLTH is not a trend in Beverly Hills, it’s a lifestyle”.
