Wellness is defined as Âthe condition of good physical and mental health,Â and this summer Snowmass Village, Colorado, offers an extensive program dedicated to this state of wellbeing. The Snowmass Wellness Experience July 15-17 is a three day immersion in the latest techniques, practices, products, and philosophies of healthy living, and no other mountain resort in the Rockies puts on such an all-encompassing wellness experience.
ÂWellness is intriguing to different people in different ways," says Snowmass Village Director of Marketing Susan Hamley, Âwhether people are interested in improving their physical health, learning about mind/body connections, or simply exploring new ways to consider overall well being in a beautiful mountain setting. This dynamic event offers countless wellness components and an A-list roster of Wellness speakers, facilitators, and activities.Â
In only its second year, the event has lured such luminaries as internationally-renowned spiritual leader Deepak Chopra, Harvard behavioral expert Dr. Joan Borysenko, best selling author and one of healthcare's most captivating motivational speakers Dr. Len Horowitz, and emerging medicine pioneer Dr. Elliott Dacher.
Additional featured speakers include best-selling author and motivational coach Karen Salmanson, best-selling alternative medicine author Burton Goldberg, internationally renowned corporate consultants and best-selling authors Ed and Deb Shapiro, award-winning writer and editor Marc Barasch, and internationally respected speaker and yoga teacher Swami Muktidharma.
All in all, over 40 lectures and interactive workshops will be offered. Topics run the gamut from whole nourishment to healthy relationships to pet therapy to Chinese Herbology. Such current hot topics as Living Wills and Dealing with Alzheimers are also slated to be covered, and Aspen Valley Hospital will hold both health screenings and workshops in their Pavilion Tent as well.
The Snowmass Wellness Experience goes beyond workshops and lectures by providing healthy cooking demonstrations sponsored by Body & Soul Magazine, 16 unique types of Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and Dance instruction, guided medicinal plant and nature hikes, a vibrant vendor village with the latest Wellness products, and pavilion tents dedicated to massage, nutrition, yoga, and health. Attendees have the opportunity to catch the world premiere screenings of two remarkable feature-length documentaries: Curing Cancer, the Best of Both Worlds and Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives, which received special accolades at this yearÂs Aspen Shortsfest Festival.
Snowmass Village boasts diverse complementary adventures as well. Fly fishing, white water rafting, over 25 miles of hiking and biking trails, a free chairlift, free outdoor concerts, dining, shopping and more create all-around value for visitors. The scenic resort town of Snowmass Village is located conveniently between four regional airports (Aspen, Eagle, Grand Junction, and Denver) and situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains only 9 miles from historic downtown Aspen, Colorado.
From the inherently rejuvenating elements of a vacation in the mountains to the opportunity to learn about diverse Wellness topics from the experts, the Snowmass Wellness Experience promotes Âlife from the outside in.Â Tickets to the event range from $20 for a pavilion pass to a $450 all-inclusive preferred seating weekend pass.
