We Joined KAYO Better Body Care at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village for a Sneak Peek at Global Wellness Day
Global Wellness Day is an international day dedicated to living well, raising awareness about wellness, and recognizing the value of our lives. This year, June 8 is Global Wellness Day and will be celebrated by Four Seasons globally.
We got a sneak peak of what’s to come by spending the day with KAYO Better Body Care and California Health & Longevity Institute at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village. And based on our experience, June 8 is going to be amazing.
We started our day with a workout led by Christine Bullock, a celebrity trainer and CEO/Co-Founder of KAYO Better Body Care. The pagoda at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village was the perfect backdrop for a morning sweat session. Using a combination of our own bodyweight and bands, we officially had our butts kicked—in the best way possible.
After our workout, we were treated to lunch at Coin & Candor, the newly renovated restaurant in the hotel. The meal was presented by head chef Jose Fernandez, and the menu features rustic, seasonal, and locally-sourced fare. My personal favorites were the Heirloom Corn Stew and the California Avocado. The grand finale of the meal was dessert: criollo cacao chocolate with criollo cacao chocolate ice cream and chocolate smoke. I think it cancelled out the workout, but was totally worth it.
After our meal we headed to the spa for hand treatments featuring KAYO Better Body Care products, including their signature Detox Mask to Scrub, which is formulated with charcoal, kaolin clay, coconut oil, and volcanic pumice. All KAYO Better Body Care products are pure and effective enough for your face—but meant for your entire body. I’m a big fan of their Body Beautiful Crème, and I can honestly say that my skin has never been softer.
As if all of this wasn’t enough, we were then treated to a sleep ritual presented by the Four Seasons Spa staff. Their Dream Kit includes a step-by-step guide for better sleep in 30 days. If the nap I took was a precursor of better sleep to come, I’m all in. The ultimate relaxation and culmination of the day was a sound bath with sound healing artist, Pamela Robins (@meditatingwithanimals).
After my experience, I’ve become a firm believer in the healing and therapeutic qualities of a sound bath, and can’t wait to try other types of holistic health treatments. All in all, it was an amazing and memorable day that really embodied the spirit and idea of wellness—spending the day free of stress with amazing people, food, and memories.
