VAIL, Colorado – This year, set an early New Year’s goal for healthy living and reach it. The Vitality Center at Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa has developed three, half-day morning wellness sessions – set for Dec. 28, 29 and 30 from 7:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. – to help participants achieve wellness goals and learn beneficial elements of health management. Each day features a different focus and participants will learn important information about nutrition, stress and weight management and balancing hormones, and discover the most effective way to exercise to reduce central body fat. This gift of vitality also includes the practice of mindful eating – a new way of approaching meals that is life-changing. “The opportunities offered through the Vitality Center are designed to provide participants with an understanding of their own health and to teach more positive behaviors and habits to improve overall wellness,” said Lisa DeKoster, director of The Vitality Center and the Spa at Vail Mountain Lodge. “The programs and practitioners provide each participant with a fact-based plan for achieving ideal health and life balance through nutrition, exercise, regenerative medicine and energy work. The holiday wellness sessions are designed to offer a small taste of all that is available.”Holiday wellness sessions at The Vitality Center at Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa includes lectures on nutritional topics by Mary Horn, M.S., including waist management, inflammation and successful weight loss. Ellen Miller, cardio fitness coach and two-time summiteer of Mt. Everest, will teach the most efficient and effective ways to exercise the heart and burn fat, while Heidi Archer, M.D. will talk about how balancing hormones affects body composition and weight loss. In addition, participants will enjoy a mindful eating lunch at Terra Bistro to complete the morning session. Cost for the morning program, including all lectures, workouts and lunch is $175 per person, per day. Afternoons are open for spa treatments, nutritional consultations, personal training sessions at the Vail Athletic Club or consultations with Dr. Archer; these are not included in the session price. Pre-registration is required.”This time of year lends itself to setting goals,” DeKoster said. “We’re here to help people reach them.”The Vitality Center offers individual diagnostics and guided, intensive regimens, tailored group retreat programs and workshop opportunities year-round.
