Beverly Hills has a rep as one of the world’s glam capitals and is even a sister city to Cannes. Few know of the city’s spiritual crunchy yoga side.
But that’s about to change if Mayor Lili Bosse has her way.
The city kicked off its City of WELLTH campaign on Thursday with ambassador Christie Brinkley, author Jason Wachob (Wellth, How to Build a Life, Not a Resume & Founder/CEO of Mindbodygreen) and Pillars of Wellth Representatives CaleyYoga’s Caley Alyssa (MOVE), renowned plant-based chef Matthew Kenney (EAT), feng-shui expert Dana Claudat (RESTORE), Bodyism founder James Duigan (GRATITUDE), and meditation expert Charlie Knoles (EXPLORE).
“The shifting status quo of how success is now perceived in terms of health and well-being, rather than through material and financial wealth, means the desire for WELLTH is now a key factor in people’s choice of travel destination,” explains Julie Wagner, CEO of Beverly Hills Conference and Visitors Bureau. “Beverly Hills, City of WELLTH, exemplifies the destination in continual innovation to create inviting options for visitors and places well-being at the forefront of its world-class accommodations, dining and spa offerings.” The city will be showcasing a range of activities inspired by the pillars of WELLTH: MOVE, EAT, RESTORE. GRATITUDE, EXPLORE.
Many of the city’s premier hotels, including The Beverly Hills Hotel, The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, Luxe Beverly Hills Hotel, Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel, Montage Beverly Hills, the Peninsula Hotel Beverly Hills, SIXTY Beverly Hills, Viceroy, L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, and Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, are offering special WELLTH room and spa packages (terms and conditions apply.) Check out details and booking info here.
In addition, many of the city’s eateries are showcasing specials that fall under one or more of the WELLTH criteria — locally sourced, plant-based, vegan, Paleo, or featuring grass-fed or hormone-free meat. Participating restaurants include: Bedford & Burns, Bouchon, Citizen, The Farm of Beverly Hills, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop, M Cafe, Prospect Gourmet, Porta Via, Xian, Gratitude, Matthew Kenney NM, Coral Tree Cafe, Laduree, and Comoncy Cafe.
Deepak Chopra, MD, has partnered with the city to launch Mayor Lili Bosse’s S.O.U.L. Sessions, Seek Original Unique Learning, part of the mayor’s #bhhealthycity initiative, which encourages a healthy lifestyle for mind, body, and soul. The world renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and transformation led a free public meditation session on the lawn outside City Hall last week.
