FAQS

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

You don't need to bring too much. We would suggest bringing a notepad and pen to take notes, a yoga mat and workout clothing if you want to participate in the workouts. Bring a change of clothes 
if you want to freshen up after a workout (see below, What Should I Wear?). 


Bring a cooler or reusable shopping bags to hold your purchases from the farmer's market and exhibit hall.

We will have a coat and bag check, so you don't need to carry everything around all day. 


WILL THERE BE FOOD?

Yes! The Green Truck, Hit It Up Food Delivery, and kombucha, snack and beverage vendors will be on the outdoor terrace
(next to the exhibit hall) Saturday and Sunday.

There will also be a Healthy Happy Hour on both Saturday and Sunday from 5-7pm with complimentary healthy hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar with organic wine.

Many of our exhibitors and sponsors will also have snack items at their tables.
Allergy-friendly foods will be available, but if you have serious allergies, please bring your own snacks.
Please rememberto bring cash and/or a credit card to make food purchases.





  • WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

    Please bring layers as hotel conference rooms tend to be chilly.
    We recommend comfortable clothing because you will be doing lots of
    sitting, standing and hopefully participating in the workouts!

    You may want to wear yoga pants or other stretchy, loose clothing. 
    Bring a light jacket if you plan to go out in the evenings. 
    And bring a bathing suit for the hotel pool and hot tub! 



    HOW DO I FIND SOMEONE TO DO A RIDE SHARE OR ROOM SHARE?

    If you are looking to share a ride or a hotel room, click here to comment on our Facebook event page.

    HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR BREAKOUT SESSIONS?

    You don't need to sign up for your sessions in advance.
    You may attend whichever sessions you want to and you can change your mind as many times as you like.
    You can mix and match and visit different stages throughout the weekend!  


    WHAT SHOULD I PACK? WHAT'S THE WEATHER LIKE IN APRIL?

    It's gorgeous...it's LA! The sun will be shining and we promise, there won't be any ice
    to scrape off your car in the mornings! The hotel is a 10 minute drive from Manhattan Beach and Venice Beach.
    There is a pool and hot tub at the hotel, so don't forget to bring your bathing suit. 


    CAN I GET THE CONFERENCE RECORDINGS?

    You can order the conference audio recordings above!
    They will be delivered to you by email up to 2 weeks after the conference.


    WHAT IS THE HEALTHY BUSINESS DAY ALL ABOUT?

    We believe that in order to restore your physical and mental health, you need to have financial health.
    Many of our attendees are also business owners, or have dreams to launch their own small business.

    On Monday April 20th, we are bringing together some of the most successful business owners
    and online influencers in the healthy living space to share how they became successful.

    You'll learn how to how to scale your business, how to manage rapid growth, how to pitch to investors,
    how to 
    grow your social media followers, how to leverage blogging, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, 
    and Instagram, 
    plus much more!

    We hope you'll join us!



    HOW DO I BOOK MY HOTEL ROOM? IS THERE A DISCOUNT?

    Conference attendees receive 15% off the nightly rate when you book through our group.

    After you buy your conference tickets, we will email you a unique link that you can use to book your room online.

    You can also call the Westin directly at (310) 216-5858.  Mention that you are with the Healthy Village Productions LLC, and the Take Back Your Health Conference to get your discount.   


    DO I NEED TO RENT A CAR?

    Only if you plan to do sightseeing while you are here. The Westin has a complimentary shuttle running every 30 minutes from LAX to the hotel front door. You can also use Uber, Lyft or the local taxi service.

    If you do want to rent a car, or drive to the event, conference attendees pay $12/day parking instead of $30/day.
    Make sure to get your ticket validated at the hotel front desk.


    CAN I BRING MY KIDS?

    Yes! Infants, children and teens age 17 and under are admitted for no charge.
    However, there will not be any entertainment for young ones this year.
    If you do bring children, please be respectful to the speakers and other attendees by staying outside
    the sessions when the kids need to let out extra energy.

    If you bring children into the sessions, they must be sitting quietly next to you
    and not running around or playing in the room. Thank you for cooperating!


    CAN I VOLUNTEER?

    Yes! We need lots of volunteers! Our dedicated volunteers are what make this event such
    a pleasant and happy experience for all, and we have a ton of fun while we're at it!
    Please email us at support@
    takebackyourhealthconference.com
    with your name and "Volunteer" in the subject line for more information.

    OUR MISSION

    True to our name, our speaker lineup and lectures provide information that is life-changing, with the ability to prevent and reverse disease when implemented into our lifestyles with purpose.

    Regardless of where you are on your journey to health, Take Back Your Health is an experience that takes you closer to your ultimate health goals — with new information, new friends and new perspectives.

    At Take Back Your Health, there are 5 stages, representing 5 pillars of optimal health.

     
    Healthy Eating
     

    We can all agree on two things: first, what you eat affects your health, and second, what we choose to eat as a population affects environmental health.

    At Take Back Your Health, we see it as our responsibility to open the stage to nutrition experts and sustainable farmers who are making significant improvements in people’s health and environmental health.


    Nutrition experts, chefs, doctors, and sustainable farmers will take the stage united in one mission: to empower you to make the best food choices for you.  
     
    To power you through all of this juicy information, we’ll have a stellar line-up of food choices throughout the weekend: local, sustainable, organic, GMO-free, allergen-free, nutrient-dense, and delicious!

    Healthy Living
     
    You already know your everyday lifestyle has a critical impact on your long-term health, but now it’s time to align your lifestyle with your health goals!  

    Cultivating healthy mindsets, healthy habits, and healthy living spaces are powerful methods of creating long-term health
    for you and your family.

    From Chinese herbalism, to EMF reduction safe practices, Take Back Your Health will give you the tools to make small tweaks to your home and lifestyle that support big changes to your long-term health.

    Healthy Body

    Movement helps to heal and tone the body, as well as to clear the mind. During your weekend with Take Back Your Health, you’ll find many opportunities to get moving.  

    From morning walks, to afternoon yoga, to evening meditations, all led by some of the world’s leading instructors, you’ll go home feeling great, and maybe even discover a new (and joyful!) form of movement that works for your body.
     
    Healthy Planet
     
    Without a healthy planet, we cannot thrive. Environmental health, locally and globally, affects our health.  We value that connection and strive to understand it as best we can.

    By reducing our waste and water use, supporting organic farming and renewable energy, recycling, composting, and buying local, Take Back Your Health aims to tread lightly, and to pass along knowledge of sustainable practices and techniques to you! 

    Together we can discover and implement sustainable ways of living in order to improve our health and the health of our planet.
     
    Healthy Business

    Your financial health can play a huge role in your overall health and well-being.

    We also know that, more than ever before, small business owners and entrepreneurs like you have great power to improve the financial health and happiness of individuals, the nation, and the world.

    Take Back Your Health supports you in creating great financial health by teaching you how to grow your reach, improve your messaging, and prepare for massive growth and follow-through with your purpose.
