The Westin Riverfront's Spa Anjali now offering Chakra Blessings
Posted March 24, 2014
Award-winning spa now offering unique treatments designed to align energy centers & create balance
Spa Anjali at The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain is now offering Chakra Blessing treatments, a unique collection of ancient rituals designed to help to clear negativity, balance energy and create an optimal state of well-being.

Chakras refer to the centers of power or energy in the body. The body’s seven main chakras sit at the intersection of the energy channels that run along the spinal column and offer connection to areas within the body that may need extra attention or balance. The focus of Spa Anjali’s Chakra Blessings is to remove energy blocks, which may be the cause of real pain, and to align the energy centers to promote a feeling of wholeness.

The three Chakra Blessings now offered at Spa Anjali are:

Muladhara – Down to Earth Blessing:

• Muladhara, the root chakra, is located at the base of the spine and is the foundation of the chakra system. It relates to our basic needs, our sense of security and survival. It is best to focus on the first chakra when you are stressed, traveling or feeling overwhelmed. The Down to Earth Blessing calms the body and mind, creating inner peace. It combines a foot wash, frankincense smoke, Tibetan singing bowls and a slow, relaxing massage with grounding oils of vetiver, ginger, patchouli and jatamansi. This treatment induces a deep sense of stillness that will leave you feeling ready to take on the world. $235 for 100 minutes

Manipura – Shine from Within Blessing:

• Manipura means ‘beautiful, shining jewel’ in Sanskrit, and refers to the naval chakra, or center of fire and sun energy that ignites our health and vitality. When the Manipura chakra is open and balanced, we shine from within. This elevating treatment floods the body with vital energy and inner warmth. Includes a detoxifying foot and body scrub, bio-energy mud wrap, marma point massage, lymphatic drainage and placement of Himalayan poultices to harness and restore inner radiance and positive feelings, renew strength and health. $235 for 100 minutes

Ajna – Peace of Mind Blessing:

• Ajna - the third eye chakra, is located in the center of the forehead. Responsible for spiritual insight, it also deals with perception, intuition, imagination, concentration and peace of mind. When our Ajna is balanced, it can harmonize our emotions. This treatment will detoxify the body with a blissful soak, energize and balance chakras through the sacred pouring of warm oil and induce a meditative state by focusing on specific marma points of the face using “light” technique, and finishing with the shirodhara - a warm stream of oil over the forehead, leaving your soul feeling aware and balanced. $225 for 90 minutes
Since opening in 2008, Spa Anjali has offered an extensive treatment menu focusing on three healing mountain traditions - the Rockies, Alps and Himalayas. As part of its expanded Himalayan Journey, Spa Anjali also now offers:

The Kundalini Back Treatment:

• The Kundalini Back Treatment replenishes the life force by using specialized techniques and concentrated oil blends to strengthen and relax the nervous system. A gentle, nurturing therapy that uses chakra and sound healing to activate the Kundalini – dormant energy at the base of the spine – will realign the body’s rhythm and restore a balanced state. This treatment includes a salt scrub for the feet, marma point therapy and heated poultices to balance the chakras. $185 for 75 minutes

Abhyanga Massage:

• The Abhyanga Massage is designed to offer profound relaxation for the overstressed using Abhyanga “oil massage.” This rhythmic and deeply relaxing massage clears stagnant energy and restores the flow of “prana” or life force to stimulate your body’s vital energy. $185 for 75 minutes

Indian Head Massage:

• Ground the mind and body with this specialized Himalayan treatment, which begins with a massage of the back, neck and shoulders, followed by a balancing Himalayan Marma massage and a restorative scalp treatment. $140 for 50 minutes

Acupuncture:

• Acupuncture is deeply healing and effective treatment that helps to restore and balance energy. It can be used to relieve pain, treat various imbalances and promote general health. $150 for 50 minutes or $210 for 75 minutes

All of the Spa Anjali Chakra Blessings are performed using ILA Spa products, organic handmade luxury skincare products from the finest, ethically sourced, natural plant and mineral ingredients.

Spa Anjali was named one of Organic Spa Magazine’s “Top 10 Green Spas for 2013” and ranked #8 on the “Top 100 U.S. Resort Spas” for 2013 by Condé Nast Traveler.

Located inside Beaver Creek’s Silver LEED certified Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, the 27,000 square-foot Spa Anjali also features a full-service salon, a spa boutique and access to the resort’s saline-based outdoor pool and three riverside hot tubs. Spa Anjali is also home to the state-of-the-art Athletic Club, which recently completed a $1 million expansion, including three new studio spaces and the Howard Head Sports Medicine Clinic.

Maya by Chef Richard Sandoval coming to The Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek
Posted April 19, 2013
Modern Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar debuting at the Vail Valley resort this June
The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain is pleased to share that Chef Richard Sandoval will transform its restaurant space into a Vail Valley outpost of his flagship concept - Maya, a Modern Mexican Kitchen & Tequileria.

Maya will debut at the resort this June.

“We are very excited to transform Cima into Maya at The Westin Riverfront because it encompasses everything that our guests and locals want – a hip, inviting space with amazing food and cocktails,” said Westin Riverfront General Manager John Evans. “And it definitely helps that Maya and Chef Sandoval already have such a strong international following.”

Driven by demand from both resort guests and locals for a more upbeat, casual dining experience, Maya’s approachable menu will feature Chef Sandoval’s authentic Mexican flavors, blending traditional recipes with contemporary techniques to create dishes and cocktails that are familiar, fantastic and affordable.

Maya’s menu will showcase Chef Sandoval’s vibrant take on traditional Mexican recipes using high quality ingredients. There will be an extensive menu of guacamoles, with selections like Tuna Tartare and Chicharrones with Heirloom Tomatoes. Signature dishes will include Lobster & Shrimp Yucatan, traditional Mexican chicken and pork braises and Carne Asada. Fresh ingredients will continue to be sourced seasonally from Maya’s on-site garden.

The renovated space will also feature a handmade Tortilla Station and a bar and lounge offering more than 100 agave-based spirits and house-infused tequilas. Led by Beverage Director Rob Calfee, the Maya Bar will offer handcrafted margaritas and cocktails, as well as personal bottle storage.

The Westin Riverfront’s existing restaurant space will be transformed into a warmer, more casual setting. Maya will feature antique Mexican tile-work, dark stained wood floors, communal tables, hand blown glass lanterns and stylish banquettes upholstered in sleek leathers.

"East West Partners is proud to have been a leader in developing this world class resort," said Westin Riverfront General Manager Bob Trotter. "We are dedicated to being respectful of the pristine mountain environment in which we do business and committed to operating this resort in the most sustainable way possible."

To achieve this high level of sustainable luxury, the 100% smoke-free resort implemented numerous environmentally conscientious building strategies and operational practices, including:

* Sophisticated building control system allows front desk associates to adjust the temperature in individual rooms upon guest arrival/departure so that unoccupied rooms are not unnecessarily heated or cooled
* Spa Anjali is Colorado's first dedicated green spa, using only environmentally-friendly products and organic spa linens

"The management and staff at the Westin have worked hard to develop innovative ways to achieve this prestigious certification, and as a result, the resort fits the mold for new, efficient, and eco-friendly businesses that are the future of this state and country," said Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter in a letter of congratulations to The Westin Riverfront.
