Get Mind Body Gorgeous at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
The wellness trend continues to gain steam...in fact, it should now be considered less of a “trend”, and more of a movement that's here to stay. From neophytes to enthusiastic adherents, society as a whole is taking a more holistic approach to improving one’s overall quality of life, incorporating healthy eating, regular physical activity, sustainable practices, and a commitment to mindfulness in thoughts and actions. Rewards include better sleep, more energy, and a stronger connection to self, others and the environment.
It’s not all earnest self-improvement, however! Savvy, well-heeled wellbeing advocates are finding ways to add fun and style to their good intentions, combining them with travel, pampering and companionship on the journey. Wellness retreats are becoming increasingly popular, as women (and men) seek an indulgent break that also meets their need for learning and establishing healthy habits.
If you’re looking for a renewed sense of self connection, one of these exclusive retreats should be on your 2018 bucket list. Spring is the perfect time to make a fresh start, and Alberta, Canada’s Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is offering an incredible experience with its Mind Body Gorgeous getaway from April 15-18, 2018. It will be hosted by Sophie Uliano, one of the best known champions of the wellness wave, a New York Times bestselling author known for her top rated Gorgeously Green book series, holistic nutritionist and yoga instructor who brings "gorgeous" to the "green" movement. Whether it’s concocting the perfect, energizing morning smoothie (with “it’ ingredient, Moringa), giving insider tips on organic beauty products, or guiding meditating and journaling practices, Sophie has cultivated legions of fans, including celebrities like Oprah and Julia Roberts, for her accessible, down to earth approach.
Mind Body Gorgeous couldn't be in a more picture perfect or inspiring setting. Surrounded by the majestic snowcapped mountain peaks, and the mesmerizing frozen expanse of famed Lake Louise, participants will experience an instant sense of calm upon arrival. This zen meets glam feel is enhanced by the luxe surroundings of the Chateau itself, with its castle-like, old world charm. Guests will mix with like-minded companions in an intimate group setting that fosters a spirit of self-discovery, led by the personable and passionate Sophie. Expect once-in-a-lifetime activities and experiences in this iconic setting, daily yoga, mindful meals, and the perfect balance of socializing and personal free time for reflection. Best of all, each individual will set realistic wellness goals and create a bespoke plan that incorporates plant-based nutrition, fitness and self-care, so they can continue the journey at home.
“Whether you’re a newbie and looking to kick start healthy habits, or a practiced wellness warrior, everyone is welcome. Allow yourself to be open, and leave the negative thinking at home,” encourages Sophie. “Together, in this beautiful haven of Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, we’ll create customized, achievable goals to help you be the healthiest, most joyful version of yourself.”
