For groups looking to refresh the mind, body and spirit, Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona has launched a brand-new lineup of health-focused team-building and breakout sessions that highlight relaxation, meditation and clean eating.

Guests can try vegetarian dishes and juices designed to boost attentiveness and energy during long days of conferences. For groups of 10 to 120 guests, Amara offers a variety of wellness-inspired add-ons. Groups can even opt for a completely customizable plant-based lunch featuring kombucha, Guajillo-infused bean dip, hummus and fresh-pressed juices at a plant-based lunch buffet.

During private guided meditation breaks, groups can experience the world-famous Sedona spirituality led by the resort’s spa experts right in the meeting space along with custom yoga classes. Chair massages help groups work out the kinks with a breakout session dedicated to rest and relaxation with local expert masseuses.

After a long day of meetings, a gem water break helps groups refocus. A variety of pitchers of water infused with gems are available, each with a focus on elements from fostering tranquility to opening the heart chakra to all forms of love and achieving the perfect life balance.

For a unique experience, groups can customize meeting room setups with lounge furniture, yoga equipment and cocktail tables, leaving more room for activities.

After working up an appetite, groups can continue their healthy focus at SaltRock Southwest Kitchen where executive chef Logan Stephenson can prepare a customized menu fit for any craving, here, they can participate in mixology classes led by the expert bar team of SaltRock Kitchen & Cocktails. Groups will learn how to mix, shake and stir with fresh and local ingredients from the Southwest and Verde Valley.

Offering the perfect backdrop for business in a secluded setting, Amara has more than 5,500 square feet of flexible meeting space. The resort has added new credenzas to its Meditation Room for a timeless feel. With just 100 guest rooms and suites, Amara provides an exceptional room to meeting space ratio.

Several organizations are collaborating on events from January through August 2019 for “celebrate bauhaus100: aspen,” which commemorates the impact of the Bauhaus art movement on Aspen. The theme “Our Legacy, Our Future/WorkPlay-Create” reflects Aspen’s Bauhaus heritage, primarily as it relates to Herbert Bayer, who was a student and a teacher at the Bauhaus, relocated to Aspen in 1946 to design the Aspen Institute and lived in the community until 1976.

 

The National Association of Catering & Events gathered on Sept. 11 at the Denver Botanic Gardens to commemorate the NACE’s 10th anniversary and provide a glimpse into the future. A panel of several founding members—Monica Cheeks of Hyatt Hotels, Cal Cheney of All Digital Photo & Video, Amanda Michalek of AORN and Brandi Pressgrove of Reckon Creative—discussed how the chapter got started, favorite programs from the past and how networking through NACE has helped grow their businesses and more.
