The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali is proudly holding a month-long program of healthy lifestyle activities in celebration of Global Wellness Day and International Yoga Day in June.
These two occasions are significant events on the world calendar, both raising awareness of the importance of living well.
The word wellness indicates a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being.
To complement the resort’s rejuvenating menu of body and beauty rituals at its Heavenly Spa, resident wellness specialist Jitendra Pokhriyal will be conducting a series of daily talks.
The schedule will cover meaningful topics such as Know Your Body, the Art of Breathing and other similar talks pertaining to physical and spiritual well-being. All participating guests will be entitled to a 30-minute session based on a different lifestyle theme each week.
Hailing from yoga’s birthplace in India, Jitendra is trained in several holistic disciplines and is well versed in meditation and pranic healing, which is a highly evolved form of touchless healing. Having previously worked as a yoga teacher in northern India and the Himalayas, Jitendra joined The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali in 2014 to share his expertise with guests and associates.
For Global Wellness Day, which falls on June 11, Jitendra will lead a special morning class in the resort’s beachfront Temple Garden from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The class will involve an energizing session of stretching postures in the form of Hatha yoga followed by a guided meditation. A healthy vegetarian food class will then introduce participants to the benefits of eating a balanced diet of organic produce. Participants will pay Rp 250,000 ( US$18.84 ) per person.
Similarly, the resort will honor International Yoga Day on June 21 with a sunset class conducted on the beach in front of the Temple Garden from 5 p.m. onwards. It will be an opportunity to unwind at the end of the day in a natural setting with a gentle session of synchronized breathing and stretching exercises. This activity is a complimentary session with limited space, so advance reservation is required.
To enhance the Wellness Celebration throughout the month of June, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali is also exclusively offering an Awaken Your Senses room package with rates starting from Rp 2,400,000 per room per night for single occupancy and Rp 2,800,000 per room per night for double occupancy with a minimum stay of three nights. This package can be booked on the website westinnusaduabali.com.
This month-long program reinforces the Westin brand’s commitment to preserving wellness in travel. The resort has a number of signature initiatives, such as WestinWORKOUT, runWestin, SuperFoodsRx and Heavenly Spa by Westin to help guests feel their best.
