It’s easy to get into a rut as we approach the winter season. Less sunlight, cooler temperatures, and a busy holiday season around the corner make it easy to relax your well-being goals. It may happen slowly — now you’re only going to the gym once per week, rather than the three times per week that you were maintaining earlier in the summer. You might be eating more, snacking in front of the TV long after the sun has gone down … but wait, it’s only 8 p.m.!
Don’t let this season get you down — use it as a time before the rush of the holidays to reset your wellness goals and connect with like-minded people. The seventh annual Lake Tahoe Wellness Weekend features three days of mindfulness in the Sierra Nevada, Nov. 9-11. Immerse yourself in an educational seminar, or grow in your practice with a movement workshop. Wellness Weekend features two tracks of classes, movement and lecture-based, creating a unique fusion that is designed to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit.
Join New York Times-bestselling author and acclaimed psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow at his keynote speech, “Heal Your Drained Brain,” on Friday evening. Dr. Dow will describe how to increase focus and clarity through holistic processes — lifestyle and diet changes, as well as simple mind exercises.
Also among the lecturers are Tahoe-based healers and health practitioners, who will be discussing a variety of topics, from aromatherapy to CBD oils. Learn how social media affects mental health with psychologist Dr. Amy Vail, and discover how to balance blood sugar for better health and energy with nutritionist Lindsay Rojas. Wellness Weekend offers unique perspectives and a holistic approach to common health questions, problems, and concerns.
Wellness Weekend also offers movement classes designed to keep you active throughout the day. Again drawing from Tahoe’s vibrant community of yoga instructors and wellness experts, classes ranging from Tai Chi to daily morning yoga will help to keep you active in between lecture sessions. You won’t want to miss the Forest Medicine Hike with Ashley Aarti Cooper — an intentional, yogic hike through the towering Tahoe pines, or Barre Sculpt with Katie Martin — a fun way to tone those problem areas.
Immerse yourself in a weekend of wellness just steps from Lake Tahoe this November. November is a gorgeous time in the mountains, with crisp fall air and the quiet that comes before the winter months. Granlibakken Tahoe is situated in a private, 74-acre wooded valley just one mile from Tahoe City and the shores of Lake Tahoe and offers the perfect setting for a retreat.
Aside from hosting twice-annual Sierra Soul Wellness Retreats, Granlibakken is a great place to bring your own retreat, conference, or seminar. With 24,500 square feet of meeting space, amenities, and activities on site, an award-winning kitchen staff, and an experienced events-management team, Granlibakken fosters productivity and connections. Whether you are interested in hosting an off-site team-building seminar or your own yoga retreat, Granlibakken offers everything needed to host a memorable event.
