Joining more than 3,000 wellness initiatives in 100 countries across the globe, the festivities will form part of one of 2016’s longest celebrations of the year – which last year panned all time zones, from sunrise in Fiji to sunset in Hawaii.
At Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, the celebratory wellness day starts at 7:00 am with an hour of Tai-chi Chuan and Qigong. Guests will then be encouraged to spend the day exploring the island’s complimentary natural wellness activities: from swimming, kayaking and snorkelling in the lagoon and Coral Gardens to connecting with self and surroundings on the Yoga Energy Trail.
At 5:30 pm, a group run is planned – beginning at Blu and continuing around the entire island – to promote change and unity, health, exploration and wellbeing. The day will end with Wellness Blooming Yoga at 9:00 pm to relax and rejuvenate body and mind.
Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa will be celebrating the day with a complimentary wellness itinerary for staff and guests of all ages, starting with two yoga sessions: 7:00 am at the Pool Deck for adults, followed by 10:30 am in Kids Club.
Next, there’s the chance to learn about juice blends and super food salads during a Healthy Food Cooking Class at Baraabaru, before heading to Turtle Beach for Laughter Yoga at 5:30 pm. As the day winds down, the Marine Discovery Centre will host a Pranic Healing / Vedanta talk at 6:15 pm before starlit meditation at 9:30 pm at Turtle Beach.
Commenting on the Resorts’ events, Sandie Johannessen – Director of Landaa’s Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat – commented, “Global Wellness Day is such a fantastic initiative and something we are extremely proud to be a part of. Wellness is integral to the ethos and offerings at Four Seasons Resorts Maldives, from powerful treatments and therapies to simply getting active – or being still – in nature. It’s about living well and continually moving forward on a journey of physical, emotional and spiritual transformation. We hope we inspire and re-inspire everyone taking part with us this Saturday.”
