Wellness is no longer just an off-the-clock lifestyle trend. Today, more and more attendees are expecting to see health and wellness options and activities included on the schedule at major events. In Aurora, Colorado, helping your people relax, recharge and stay productive is easy—especially with the majestic Rocky Mountains as your backdrop. From exploring the great outdoors to rejuvenating spa treatments to group exercise classes (both high and low octane), here are five ways attendees can reconnect mind, body and spirit while in Aurora.
Unwind at the Spa
Nothing says self-care quite like a day at the spa. Relâche Spa & Salon at Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center feels like a contemporary alpine oasis, and is the perfect place to spend a free afternoon after back-to-back meetings. With the convention center just a quick stroll away, you can also arrange for your attendees to de-stress with a post-meeting massage, leaving them ready to take on the next day with a fresh perspective.
The fresh mountain air can do wonders for the soul, not to mention creativity. Plan a hike for your team through one of the many well-groomed trails at Cherry Creek State Park, or rent some bicycles for an even more exhilarating activity. The views of the Rocky Mountains here are both serene and inspiring.
Sweat it Out
Sitting at a desk or around a conference table all day can make anyone feel a little stiff. Solution? Invite your attendees to sweat it out with a group spin class at CycleBar Southlands. This high-intensity, low-impact workout is ideal for any skill level, and it’s a great way to get your blood pumping and energy levels up. Because more energy means more focus.
Find Your Center
Yoga has become synonymous with the wellness movement, and a new staple of corporate events and conventions. Encourage your group to head over to Kindness Yoga at Stanley Marketplace for an early morning class to align breath and movement before stepping into business mode. Or arrange for a post-meeting wind down session, followed by a casual team dinner and drinks at any one of the surrounding local eateries.
Eat a Healthy Lunch
What you eat can have a huge impact on how you feel, especially when you’re away from home. Keep your attendees healthy and well-fed with a fresh, quick-and-easy lunch at MAD Greens Southlands. Or head to Coco Loco on Havana Street to pick up some cold-pressed juices and smoothies for a refreshing break from the everyday cup of joe.
