The Spa in partnership with Yada Yada Yoga provides an opportunity to transform your life with pilates, yoga with AJ, fitness assessment with Russell, a private healthy cooking session with executive chef Kaleo Adams, and finished with a world class spa treatment with Brian. As Chef Kaleo says, “People think about what they wear, and who it is designed by, what car they drive, and who they associate with but don’t always give as much thought to what they put in their mouth for sustenance.” Spend your day choosing carefully!
