Healthy Eating and Fitness-Focused Wellness Weekend to Be Held at Top Midwest Resort Spa Oct. 7-8

LAKE OZARK, MO — Those looking for tips and motivation for healthy living will find inspiration and guidance this fall during the Oct. 7-8 Wellness Weekend to be held at Spa Shiki at The Lodge of Four Seasons, one of the Midwest’s top resort spas. The two-day event at the Lake of the Ozarks will feature a guest health and wellness speaker, healthy cooking demonstration and group fitness activities.

The weekend kicks off with an organic wine reception on Friday night from 7:00-7:45p.m. at Spa Shiki. Saturday morning will begin with a sunrise walk, followed by yoga at 9 a.m. At noon, guests will enjoy a cooking demonstration and healthy lunch, followed by a seminar featuring health and wellness speaker Dr. Wendy Cobler at 2 p.m. Dr. Cobler, a chiropractor and sports rehabilitation doctor based in Osage Beach, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain and musculoskeletal injuries, particularly sports-related injuries.

The activities wrap up on Sunday morning with a discussion on the benefits of juicing (guests will enjoy celery juice with ginger, lime and apple or pear and carrot juice with lime, apple or pear) in the Spa Shiki café, a hike around the resort and yoga.

The Lodge of Four Season’s October Wellness Weekend package includes a two-night stay at the resort, which recently completed a $15 million renovation, as well as a $50 Spa Shiki credit per person per day (must be used each day, Saturday and Sunday, not accruable).

Additional guests may be added to the room package for $62.50 each (taxes and resort fee not included). The seminar, yoga, wine reception and breakfast are included in the package rate, and the $50 Spa Shiki credit may be applied toward facials, massages and other spa treatments to personalize and complete the Wellness Weekend.
