West Coast Wellness

Signature Retreat Launches in LA

BY DON NICHOLS — Summer 2018

For a big dose of wellness in Southern California, consider a new health and fitness experience at the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village north of LA. In the recently launched Signature Retreat at the on-site California Health & Longevity Institute, spend four days focusing on how to live a more balanced, healthy life. The schedule includes a nutrition consultation with a registered dietitian; a fitness consultation and metabolism assessment by exercise physiologists, who also lead workouts in the gym and on an activity lawn; hikes on nearby trails in the Santa Monica Mountains; hands-on classes on cooking healthy (with easy recipes even novice cooks can make at home); and meditation and yoga sessions. Daily lectures by experts cover a variety of topics, such as managing stress for better health, eating healthy when dining out, managing cravings, and the secrets to burning fat. At mealtimes, you’ll be surprised by just how tasty healthy dishes can be. Three of my favorites: Italian Chicken Soup With Farro and Pesto, Salmon With Coconut Cilantro Lime Sauce, and Turkey-Stuffed Squash With Broccoli. From $2,997. 818-575-3000; chli.com
