Why This New York Spa Thinks Next-Gen Wellness Is the Future
By Liz Ritter, Executive Editor |
Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is pretty serious when it comes to its spa and wellness offerings: There’s a state-of-the-art pool, multi-hour signature experiences, off-the-radar skin-care brands, in-room soak services, and even a resident crystal healer.
And, now, the luxe location has a new addition that senior spa director Tara Cruz thinks will take the wellness factor up a notch—the Next-Gen Wellness Workshops, finely-tuned spa offerings designed specifically for children.
Cruz curated and introduced the services so everyone “could enjoy a wellness experience, even the smallest guests,” she says. “It comes from the belief that if we start the next generation on a path of health and wellness when they’re young, it will set them up for success in the future.”
The offerings include Mala Making, Future Yogi, Crystal Class, Blend Baby Blend (aromatherapy experimentation), and Mindfulness in the Making (meditation), to name a few; the workshops are complimentary to children, accompanied by an adult, who purchase a spa service of 50 minutes or more.
