What is Hula-Rama?
Glen Ivy Hot Springs is excited to host the first ever “Hula-Rama” this Thursday, September 8. Glen Ivy Marketing & Communications Manager and event organizer Jennifer Merrett tells us more…
Q. Jennifer, What is Hula-Rama, and why is Glen Ivy having one?
A. Hula-Rama is a way of introducing guests, local media, and community leaders to some of the fun and healthy guest programming that have enhanced the spa experience at Glen Ivy Hot Springs over the last year. Through a host of regular daily fitness classes, workshops and tours, we have added many activities for creative and personal renewal. We also feature numerous special presenters each month that bring unique experiences and entertainment so that guests may pick and choose the ones that feel right to them. Almost all are free of charge, included with paid spa admission so each time a guest visits the spa, they’re sure to have a new experience!
Q. Where does the Hula-Rama come in?
A. The inspiration for this event came from a partnership with Hoopnotica, the Venice Beach company that is leading the very successful Hula hooping fitness trend. We have given it a try and decided we like hooping— exercise can be fun, as evidenced by our long-time guest favorite, Water Aerobics, which happens here daily. Hoopnotica will be here at Glen Ivy Hot Springs throughout the day, giving demonstrations and teaching classes, and even be selling hoops and offering a hoop decorating class. I can’t wait!
Q. What else can guests enjoy on this day?
A. In addition to three Hoopnotica classes, guests may try a stretch, yoga or water aerobics class, learn more about container gardening, walk the labyrinth, take a botanical tour of the grounds, or shop at the mini Farmer’s Market and Glen Ivy Plant Shop. Plus there will Raffle Prize drawings throughout the day. You can view full schedule of activities on our website.
Q. Did you say PRIZES? What kind of stuff can we win? And how do we enter?
A. When you arrive, you can fill out a form to sign up to win some fantastic prizes including Glen Ivy Spa essentials gift bags, skin care products, a beautiful container garden made by floral designer Shannon Ballew, and starter Hoopnotica Hoop kits!
