The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection and THE WELL Announce a Wellness Retreat Immersed in Nature this Spring

Designed for wellness seekers looking to dive deeper as well as urban visitors craving a meaningful escape, the Week of WELL is a guide to a more mindful and connected life.

The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection, an intimate luxury resort outside of Park City, and THE WELL, a complete ecosystem for wellness and holistic health care, are partnering for an exclusive retreat over May 30-June 2, 2022. The Week of WELL will integrate craniosacral therapy and ancient modalities while immersing guests in nature and drawing inspiration from the Lodge’s expansive alpine setting. Over the course of four days, the immersive experience will uncover best practices in mindfulness, movement, nutrition and medicine with personalized sessions led by visiting masters, such as Craniosacral Therapist and Educator Michelle Stoppi and Plant People Founder Gabe Kennedy. Designed for wellness seekers looking to dive deeper as well as urban visitors craving a meaningful escape, the Week of WELL is a guide to a more mindful and connected life.

“Fostering connection between each guest and the vast landscape that surrounds us has always been the ethos of The Lodge at Blue Sky,” said Joe Ogdie, general manager, The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection. “The Week of WELL will be a remarkable journey toward physical and energetic alignment that combines our back-to-nature mindset with global practices led by THE WELL.”

In a perfect union that blends THE WELL’s eastern-meets-western practice and the Lodge’s wild-crafted approach to wellbeing, the retreat will greet summer with a fresh perspective after taking time to cleanse, ground, empower and find grace.

Kicking off with a sacred sage blessing inspired by the native land, the four-day itinerary is complete with movement classes, meditations, trail rides and private meals. Master Practitioner Michelle Stoppi, a licensed craniosacral massage therapist and the leading educator of craniosacral professional continuing education in the U.S., will lead sessions that explore the nervous system and its connection to the Earth's biomagnetic energetic field in order to overcome stress and achieve peace.

“I am very much looking forward to the magic we will be making with The Lodge at Blue Sky in May,” shared Michelle Stoppi, master practitioner, THE WELL. “This retreat will be a great opportunity for anyone curious to get in tune with their well-being and further expand their consciousness. Whether you are looking to shake up your routine, make adjustments to your health, or learn more about integrative practices in general, the lessons learned during this week are sure to impact your life for years to come.”

Highlights include a nourishing lunch crafted by Gabe Kennedy with Plant People’s regenerative plant and mushroom supplements, a sunrise hike to mountain top yoga and breakfast with Blue Sky’s wellness experts and a six-course dinner in which Executive Chef Galen Zamarra expresses food as medicine. Guests will also be able to arrange one-on-one craniosacral sessions with Michelle Stoppi for a more personalized and private healing experience.

When the week concludes, guests will have awakened their inner healer and unearthed a new way to care for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

Set on a 3,500-acre private working ranch in the Wasatch Mountain Range, The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection is just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City airport but a world away.
