December is the Friday of the calendar year; filled with anticipation, excitement, stress, and plans! Somehow or other, we’ve made it (nearly) to the end of 2022, and all of a sudden, the holidays are just around the corner. With the requisite Mariah Carey, Starbucks drinks, and office parties, the holidays bring a flurry of activities, and it can be exhausting just visualizing what December looks like! If you’re in charge of planning your office holiday festivities and are balking at the idea (see that scene in “Love Actually” when Alan Rickman bemoans planning his company party) Bikes and Hikes LA has got you covered with our unique slate of holiday team building activities in Los Angeles below. Treat your team to any of these team building extravaganzas!

Group Team Building Sound Bath and Guided Meditation

Let’s face it; December is stressful! (In “The Sopranos,” Dr. Melfi quips about Christmas “I call it Stress-Mas.”) Holiday gatherings and festivities are so fun, and the spirit/season of giving no doubt fill your cup, one way or another- but such merriment can be exhausting. Let’s also be real for a moment; in addition to gatherings with families and friends, as well as shopping, travel, dinners, and year-end wrap-ups, sometimes the LAST thing you want to do is interface with your colleagues more than you have to. Rather than make idle chitchat with Rick from Accounting over some microwaved hors d’oeuvres at a holiday luncheon, spend time with your colleagues being absolutely silent; alone together, taking part in our healing, brand new GROUP TEAM BUILDING SOUND BATH. As our end of the year treat to all of you, Bikes and Hikes LA is proud to present our two latest new Los Angeles team building activities: our Group Team Building Sound Bath, AND our Team Building Sound Bath and Guided Group Meditation. Both of these team building activities are designed to relax, restore, and rejuvenate you and your group with a soothing sound bath. Our expert healer will guide your group through an ancient healing sound bath, with soothing sound patterns and waves washing over you and your group. We also offer this team building experience with a bonus guided meditation session! In this team building activity, you and your group will also experience a team building guided meditation exercise, lead by an expert guru. Both of these activities are fully customizable, and offer a corporate team building experience outside of a bar, happy hour, or holiday party. Treat your team to a relaxing and rejuvenating end of year experience with our two group sound bath sessions! You deserve it.

In conclusion, our outdoor group team building activities are a unique alternative to a traditional office holiday party, and the perfect year-end team building excursion for you and your group. Our mission at Bikes and Hikes LA is to get you and your team out of your cars (or cubicles) and into the sunshine, and our outdoor team building options allow you to do just that! Additionally, in the post-COVID frontier (whatever that means! We’re in year three of the pandemic, and just rolling with the changes,) all of our activities always have been, and continue to be socially distanced and entirely outdoors, allowing for fun, safe, and healthy holiday bonding opportunities. Now that conventions and conferences are back, and we’ve made it through another year of these unprecedented times, we could all use any opportunity to celebrate at the end of the year- and bond with our teams? Let Bikes and Hikes LA give you the gift of team building this holiday season with our unique outdoor group team building opportunities- and as the cherry on top, all of our team building options are available to be GIFTED as well! We have gift cards for all of our Los Angeles Group Tours, and all of our offerings are fully customizable.

Give Bikes and Hikes LA a call today, and get a jump start on your holiday team building before your December fills up! From all of us to all of you, we’d like to be the first to wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.
