    Practice those yoga poses steps from the pool at the Global Wellness Day gathering on Sunday, June 11.

    TAKING A LONG VIEW... of your road to good health choices, daily exercise, and the other components that make up the larger picture of overall wellness is frequently recommended, though keeping tabs on the day-to-day details is a smart idea, too. If you've been longing to take such a long view, and you wouldn't mind some actual, traditional views thrown in to enhance to experience, then look up, up, up, at the private rooftop retreat at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles. The downtown hotel spa makes for a relaxing, muscles-unknotting getaway for guests and locals alike, throughout the calendar, but sometimes something a little special pops up. In early June, that something "a little special" happens to be Global Wellness Day, a fine occasion to take a yoga class, snack upon delicious, energy-enhancing meals, and meditate. The spa will be observing the day on Sunday, June 11, and there's still time to sign up for eventful day, which will include happenings like...

    POOLSIDE YOGA, and meditation, too, a 90-minute session led by ERYT 500 Yoga Alliance certified teacher Rachel Jackson. Lunch is a bento box, straight from WP24, and the goodies within will align with the healthy vibe of the occasion. A Garden to Glamorous class puts the focus on the hotel's rooftop herb garden, while a 50-minute treatment at the Spa Sanctuary focuses on those spots you'd like to focus upon (the treatment is your choice). It's $295 per person, for everything, including, as the cherry on top (very on top, as in 26 floors up), those downtown views. Want to reserve a spot at the 9 a.m. to 4 o'clock health-conscious happening? Ring the spa at 213-743-8800.
