10 Ways to Nourish Your Well-Being at WELCOA Summit

Can you imagine going to a conference and coming back even more refreshed than when you showed up? That’s the goal! For you to rise well and be ready to elevate change after your time with us. We’ve designed our annual conference, WELCOA Summit, to be an immersive well-being experience not only to equip you to support the people you serve, but to nourish your own well-being as well.

Check out these 10 opportunities to nourish your well-being at WELCOA Summit this year:

  1. Hotel Wellness Features
    This year’s conference will be held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel, right on the beautiful San Diego, California waterfront. This hotel features spacious rooms, stunning views, and upscale amenities, just steps away from areas like Petco Park, Seaport Village, and more.

  2. The hotel also features:
    • A variety of dining options, including coffee shops, So-Cal inspired seafood restaurant, a premier sky-lounge, a retro coin-op arcade and bar, a lobby bar, a buffet breakfast, a poolside bar and grill, and takeaway options.
    • Two rooftop pools
    • 24-Hour Fitness Center

  3. Daily Morning Self-Care Session
    Start each day with two self-care options. Join us each morning for a guided meditation and/or one one-on-one coaching microbursts with Jana Wilder and Molly Strong, Co-Founders of Meet Your Magic. It’s the perfect way to set intentions for each day of the event.

  4. Kickoff Dinner and Connection Session
    On night one, we’re kicking off the self-care experience with a community connection experiential jump start and dinner together led by Drs. Elizabeth Markle and Benjamin Emmert-Aronson, Co-Founders of Open Source Wellness. This is the perfect time to get centered and focused in on making the most out of the event.

  5. Morning Flow Yoga
    If gentle morning movement is your speed, enjoy fluid movements and breathing to enhance your strength and flexibility in a short morning flow yoga session.

  6. Stretch ‘n De-Stress
    Need a midday moment to re-center and wake back up after lunch? Unwind your mind and loosen up your body in a short Stretch ‘n De-Stress session.

  7. Chair Massage
    We’ve all been there – the dreaded stiff neck after trying to get some shut-eye on the flight to a conference, or the shoulder tension for getting in some extra office hours before taking the week off. Get the airplane knots and shoulder tension worked out with a chair massage from a local massage therapist.

  8. Stretch ‘n Sweat
    If end of the work day workouts are part of your routine, no need to break that habit just because you’re traveling. Wrap up the day with a short but effective Stretch ‘n Sweat, head-to-toe workout session with local fitness instructors.

  9. Outdoor Walk, Jog, or Run
    Set your own pace for wellness during a walk, jog, or run with beautiful waterside scenery led by Sprintcrowd running coaches.

  10. Musical Wellness Experience
    Move to the rhythm of wellness with world-renowned drummer and vocalist, Manas Itene during a musical performance and interactive drum circle experience.

  11. Waterside Wellness
    There’s something so refreshing about being near or in the water. Take advantage of the nearby beaches for a moment in the sun and sand. Stunning beaches you’ll find not too far from the hotel are Coronado Beach, La Playa Beach, and Sunset Cliffs Natural Park.

Does this sound like the wellness experience you need to recenter yourself?
