Bringing local communities and travellers together throughout the Holy Month to walk, jog and stretch their way to a healthy Ramadan, #MoveThisRamadan by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts returns for a second year from mid-May. The seasonal wellbeing campaign, which this year coincides with Global Wellness Day on June 9, 2018, offers a wide range of enjoyable opportunities for gentle physical exercise before iftar and after suhoor.
This year, participants can benefit from a diverse program of activities at 15 Four Seasons addresses across the Middle East and North Africa as well as Istanbul, Jakarta and the Maldives, with sessions reflecting the Ramadan pillars of togetherness, sharing and cultivating inner peace.
Making light exercise a natural component of everyone’s Ramadan ritual, each fitness session will be led by a resident Four Seasons fitness expert and is specially designed to help people feel energised. From jogging to yoga, stretching and strolls, the choice of activities has been carefully planned to take into consideration local climates and appropriate activity levels. The sessions also take advantage of the stunning locales surrounding each property.
Dubai residents can join weekly City Striders jogs from Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre, while mothers can bring their child and pram along to Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach for Run Mummy Run every Monday. Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay is offering a sense of calm with special 30-minute reflective meditation sessions held in the lavish surrounding of its beautiful Spa. Meanwhile at Four Seasons Hotel Baku, a daily jogging and stretching session will take place along the elegant setting of Baku Boulevard’s promenade, complete with enchanting views across the Caspian Sea.
In addition to the regular #MoveThisRamadan activities throughout Ramadan, the 2018 campaign coincides with the Global Wellness Day on June 9, 2018 – an international day focused on raising awareness on the importance of living well, both physically and spiritually. A series of special events will be offered to celebrate the occasion, including Zumba and yoga classes at Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus and a relaxing sunset Tai Chi session at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre.
From the opening of its first hotel in 1961, the story of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is defined by the constant pursuit of guest happiness through understanding their needs – including wellness. With this goal in mind, Four Seasons was the first hospitality company to integrate fitness centres and spas into its hotels, and the first to introduce a choice of healthy dishes on the menu. The story continues next month with the #MoveThisRamadan campaign.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts wishes everyone a blessed and healthy Ramadan.
