Global Wellness Day at The Four Seasons

  • Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North (map)

Begin the day in a healthy way with a wellness bike ride, departing directly from the property at 7 a.m. This casual, approximately two-hour ride will explore the beautiful landscape of North Scottsdale at a leisurely pace. A professional cycling guide from Arizona Outback Adventures will lead the group.  Cost per rider is $45, and pre-registration is required. The cost includes the ride, use of a hybrid bike, helmet and complimentary water. The ride is open to both guests of the property and local residents. Participants can book online.

Local visitors and guests are invited to join in a sunrise Tai Chi class at 6 a.m. on Troon Lawn, followed by a morning yoga class at 7 a.m. on Fountain Terrace. Enjoy one class for $15 or both for $20, inclusive of a healthy smoothie. Water and towels will be provided; local guests are requested to bring their own mat. Local visitors can extend the wellness celebration with a Global Wellness Day Pass that includes the Tai Chi or morning yoga class, a 25-minute treatment and a healthy lunch in Proof. The cost for the day pass is $135. Participants may secure their spot in either class or purchase the day pass by calling the Spa at (480) 513-5145.

That afternoon, local vendors including Queen Creek Olive Mill, Hayden Flour Mills, Crow’s Dairy and Valley Honey will come together to present a complimentary marketplace tasting in the Resort’s lobby from 4 to 6 p.m. 

Talavera will join forces with the featured local purveyors to highlight a special menu of healthy superfood favorites, available June 1 – 14. The three-course menu will emphasize a mindful, balanced approach to health and well being. The cost is $75 per person, with optional organic wine pairings available at an additional cost. A portion of the proceeds from the special menu will support the Joy Bus charity, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to delivering healthy, chef-driven hot meals to homebound cancer patients. For reservations and more information, please call (480) 513-5085.

Special healthy menu items will be available throughout the weekend in Proof, an American Canteen. Guests of the Resort can greet the day on Saturday, June 10, with a selection of complimentary carrot-bran muffins, gluten-free baked goods and fresh-pressed juice at the morning coffee set-up in the lobby. Guests will be greeted in room by a complimentary seasonal market welcome amenity. Poolside amenities will include health-conscious items such as sliced fresh watermelon, kale peanut butter smoothies and housemade granola energy bars.
