Estancia La Jolla Hotel Debuts Team Building Guide

LA JOLLA, California – Meeting planners looking to add a memorable team building experience like a yoga session, sushi making class or workshop on wine basics can choose from one of Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa’s new team building offerings. The hotel recently released a Team Building Guide divided into Cooking, Tastings, and Body, Mind, Wellness activities.

The Body, Mind, Wellness experiences range from a Chinese meditation experience called Qi Gong to a Bocce Ball game. Hiking on one of three trails through southern California fits those meeting attendees who desire a more active way to spend an hour, while the hotel’s yoga and guided meditation experiences will help clear the stress out of the meeting.

Attendees divide into smaller groups to take on the hotel’s two cooking challenges: the Sushi Making Challenge and the Salsa Making Challenge. Each team submits their dish to a panel of judges to see who wins the chosen prize. During the Salsa Making Challenge, groups also have to create a commercial spot to promote their new salsa brand, as well as construct a vegetable car for a oddball race.

The Tastings category includes a Mixology Bootcamp for tips of the art of making cocktails. Whiskey 101 and Techila 101 explores four varieties of both liquors to teach differences in flavor, and distilling techniques. Wine 101 and Beer 101 similarly provide participants with various varieties to sample while they learn how to become aficionados in their chosen drink.
