Telluride Ski Resort To Host Summer Wellness Retreat Series In 2018

The scoop: Throughout this summer, Telluride Ski Resort and The Peaks Resort & Spa will host a series of wellness retreats designed to provide attendees with cutting-edge knowledge and tools to revolutionize your lifestyle, and even preventing or reducing age-related ailments like dementia, heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and obesity. The goal? To ultimately prolong your life and overall happiness—in one week.

The details: The series of retreats will be led by internationally-renowned internist and gastroenterologist Dr. Alan Safdi and a team of wellness, nutrition, bodyworks and fitness experts. The lineup of physician-run initiatives will include personalized one-on-one coaching and consultation with physical trainers and dietitians. In addition, Dr. Safdi will head daily educational lectures, hikes and activities—along with pre-retreat private meetings to fully customize an individual’s needs for the retreat, and post-retreat follow ups with Dr. Safdi himself.

Attendees (limited to only 15 per retreat) will enjoy luxurious accommodations at The Peaks Resort & Spa in Telluride, which is included in the cost, along with interactive meals and cooking demos including 6 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 4 dinners.

Retreat dates: June 3-9; July 15-21; Aug. 19-25; Sept. 23-29

Soundbites: “These retreats are simply unlike anything being offered out there right now. And it’s easy to make that claim, because there just isn’t. We provide the kind of meaningful education you should have gotten in school. The truth is, there is no “one thing” that is the answer for wellness. It’s a variety of components—eating right, exercising right, understanding how your body works, along with the kinds of questions you should be asking the doctor and how to make sense of all the jargon and misleading information out there in the world.”

Available for interview: Yes, for Dr. Alan Safdi.
