On Thursday night, July 25th, 6pm at the Westin Rancho Mirage Golf Resort and Spa: 71333 Dinah Shore Drive, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270, Clark’s Nutrition & Natural Foods Market will present, Vitality Zone.

Michele Stone, founder, and CEO of Vitality Zone has shared a life-long interest in the health and wellness sector. During the 1970’s, Michele worked for an M.D., at a private practice, and it was during that time that she became motivated to find out how she could live a healthier, longer, and better quality of life.

Michele began a research quest to discover as much information as she could with regards to longevity and anti-aging. However, at the time she never discovered definitive information that tied all aspects of longevity and anti-aging together. That was until she fell upon the research of Dan Buettner.


For the past twenty-two-years, as of the date of this article, Dan Buettner, journalist/researcher, and world class, record-breaking cyclist, founded the “Blue Zones” concept. Blue Zones are five distinct regions across the world including, Loma Linda, California; Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica, and Ikaria, Greece. Within these “Zones”, vast numbers of individuals live to the age of one-hundred or more, without many of the common plaguing health issues associated with aging.

Upon the discovery of Dan’s incredible studies, Michele felt a strong inclination to further his work and spread his findings to her Rancho Mirage, and neighboring desert communities by way of a seminar, and subsequent social gatherings. This led Michele to contact the Coachella Valley’s leading family owned and operated health foods and supplement market, Clark’s Nutrition & Natural Foods Market on Monterey Avenue. As it happened, one of Clark’s stores sits atop one of the world’s Blue Zones in Loma Linda. Josh Clark, son of current Clark’s President took a vested interest in Michele’s concept. Yet, it didn’t end there …

The event on July 25th is additionally brought to the community via the support of the Westin Rancho Mirage Golf Resort and Spa. The seminar will be a night filled longevity knowledge and will facilitate educating guests on how they can live a longer, more productive, and better-quality of life. The evening will lend guests the tools they need to better understand how to enhance their quality of life, and it’s not only about diet and exercise. At the seminar you will learn all that you need to help you begin a course that could see you, like those already living in the Blue Zone, live a healthier, happier, and longer life.

In addition to the seminar on July 25th, Vitality Zone will be offering cooking classes at the Westin for the remainder of the year. This is your opportunity to become part of a healthier community while enjoying all the perks of wine tasting, constant contact, workshops, walking clubs, and a likeminded group striving to achieve the same goal.
