Redefining Orlando’s Meetings Landscape, Lake Nona Wave Hotel Takes Groups Beyond the Boardroom with Industry-Leading Innovation and Human Wellness Partners
Opening this December, the luxury lifestyle hotel will offer groups exclusive access to Limitless Minds, founded by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and programing by Dr. Deepak Chopra’s Mind Body Zona and Spa
Orlando, FL – December 21, 2021 – As one of the most visited and accessible meetings and conventions destinations in the nation, a renaissance is upon Orlando’s events industry as the new Lake Nona Wave Hotel is set to debut in December. Featuring innovative accommodations and cutting-edge team building programs complemented by technologically advanced venues, the 234-room hotel is set to transform the Orlando skyline.
The hotel will offer transformative dining, entertainment, and a wealth of never-before-seen team building opportunities plus close proximity to the airport – a combination of offerings that’s unheard of in the region.
“Orlando remarkably ranked at No. 1 on Cvent’s list of the top U.S. meeting destinations for five consecutive years – and for good reason,” said James Tattersall, Director of Sales and Marketing at Lake Nona Wave Hotel. “When we were conceptualizing our programming tailored to groups, we knew that creating something that’s never been seen before in this market was imperative. In partnering with some of the most well-respected innovators and specialists, I believe we have successfully introduced a new meetings experience that will elevate what the destination has already created for the industry.”
Performance Optimizing Workshops
Founded by Super Bowl Champion, six-time Pro Bowl quarterback and entrepreneur Russell Wilson – an athlete acclaimed for being just as focused on his mental game as he is on the sport itself – Limitless Minds is a performance optimizing company that unlocks the power of the mind. Taking limitless thinking from sports into the corporate workspace, Limitless Minds has worked with the world’s top organizations from major pharmaceutical companies to the National Basketball Association and Ultimate Fighting Championship.
By combining the expertise of the late renowned mental conditioning coach Trevor Moawad, former Division 1 football and baseball player with biotech leader Harry Wilson, and longtime healthcare and biotech leader DJ Eidson, Limitless Minds offers training that is dedicated to helping enrich companies’ culture through “neutral” mindset training. Hotel groups will have exclusive access to immersive 90-minute “Mindset Workshops” that perfectly blend classroom-like discussion designed to unlock the power of the mind’s potential coupled with physical and mental activities throughout Lake Nona. Experiences can include rock climbing at ROX Climbing, the region’s only 42 ft rock climbing tower or meditation at Chopra’s Mind Body-Zone and Spa, the first-of-its-kind partnership bringing Chopra Global’s signature movement and spa programs to a leading fitness facility and marks the company’s first brick-and-mortar partnership.
In addition to the workshops led by some of the world’s most thought provoking speakers like United States Navy SEALs, the interactive seminars will cover topics like creating present-moment awareness, dealing with change, high-performing habits, confidence, nurturing a “YES, AND” mindset, and more.
“In today’s fluid, fast paced and competitive world – a mindset that delivers the highest probability of success is an undeniable asset. That is why we are eager to provide Lake Nona Wave Hotel guests’ workable keys to unlock that potential,” says Harry Wilson, Limitless Minds Co-founder.
Elevating wellness to new heights, groups can experience unrivaled mindfulness leaders from Chopra Global, a leading whole health company founded by Dr. Deepak Chopra who has debuted the first-ever Chopra Mind Body Zone at Lake Nona Performance Club. From wall yoga to Chopra Meditation, groups will access classes that support mind, body, and spiritual wellness intentionally aimed at invigorating the body.
