How are you helping your spa clients to recharge and commit to a better lifestyle in the new year? Here’s a glimpse into some of the more innovative programs offered at a variety of hotel, resort and destination spas. This is the time of year when guests are eager and more open about learning how to live a healthier life—be that through diet, exercise or mind-body lessons. Owners who realize this and know that it is a spa’s responsibility to provide such offerings will succeed in the coming year and beyond.

Creative classes

At the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, California, guests can choose from an array of what the facility has deemed Short Courses in Living Better. Among the new offerings: The Artist’s Path, created to help guests discover and develop their inner artist and “ignite the fires within.” The property invites local guest artists to guide spa-goers on their creative quests. There’s also a class called Aromatherapy: Essential Oils from A to Z. Guests who opt for this will learn how the art of aromatherapy has been practiced by numerous cultures, as well as how the essential oils of plants can be used to promote the healing of the mind, body and spirit.

Winning at weight loss

When it comes to staying fit and losing weight, The Allegria Spa at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek in Beaver Creek, Colorado, has not only its members’ well-being in mind, but its team members’ well-being, too. Beginning in January and running through March, The Club at Allegria Spa is hosting and participating in a nationwide challenge that is sponsored, in part, by the International Health and Racquet Sports Association (IHRSA), PayDay Pro and Life Fitness. In addition to the benefit of a healthier community, explains Katie Coakley, a media spokesperson for the property, The Club at Allegria Spa is donating the corresponding dollar amount for the total number of pounds lost during the eight weeks to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund. The Club also invites other community businesses to sponsor the program for their teams, and any business that chooses to participate can benefit from support that Allegria Spa offers, including complimentary weekly seminars, motivational e-mails, resting metabolic rate testing and anaerobic threshold testing.
