Experts promote focusing on positivity for wellness during weekend event

by Heather Warlick Published: March 26, 2013

The weekend includes healthful meals, daily activities such as hiking and yoga, seminars about the various dimensions of wellness and an array of fitness-minded physical and meditative activities, led by the fitness team from The Broadmoor, which is owned by The Oklahoma Publishing Company.

The wellness weekend getaway also can be a time for women to gain a new perspective on their lives.

“Perspective — that's a new keyword in the wellness world right now,” said Bev Stewart, fitness supervisor at The Broadmoor. “How you perceive things is what you're going to find. If you're looking for good things in your life, that's what you'll find.”

Stewart and Broadmoor spa director Cassie Hernandez are coordinating the event along with the medical personnel speaking at the event, including Hill, whose Friday seminar is titled “What is Wellness & Why Do You Want it?”

“It's not just focusing on one aspect of health — physical, mental, nutritional — it's how to combine all of that so that your wellness is balanced in every aspect of yourself,” Hernandez said.

For some women who participated in a similar event last year at The Broadmoor, it was a life-changing weekend.

“Overall, the women felt like ‘I laughed, I cried, I learned about what's going on inside,'” Stewart said.
