MINDFULNESS AT THE APURVA KEMPINSKI BALI
The Apurva Kempinski Bali has been known to incorporate mindfulness into its resort activities. This year, the five-star resort takes things further by participating in Global Wellness Day.
Global Wellness Day is an international event that has been celebrated annually, and is dedicated to the art of living well. People all around the world participate in this special event on the second Saturday of June every year. The aim of Global Wellness Day is to get rid of the stress of everyday life, while raising awareness of living well and generating motivation.
The Apurva Kempinski Bali offers a series of initiatives, launched on 13 June, which are centred around the chakras, or the energy points, of the human body. Seven different programmes are available, with the theme of Mindfulness: The Art of Being Present. Designed with the wisdom of chakras in mind, these activities have been prepared to correspond to each of the seven chakras in the human body, releasing any blockages that might disrupt the energy flow.
As a centre of energies, the chakras are vital energy points that form a network connecting body, mind and spirit. When a chakra point is disrupted, the body becomes imbalanced. Awakening the chakra spirit becomes the main focus, and all is prepared to ensure a smooth flow of energy, starting at the bottom with the root chakra, and on up to the crown chakra at the top of the head for a complete healing for both body and soul.
Wrapping up the wellness programme, the resort is releasing a special talk show with Bapak Merta Ada – Founder of Bali Usada, who is an award-winning healing practitioner. Together with this prominent figure, The Apurva Kempinski Bali utilises its online platform to help people all around the world find mindfulness.
‘Global Wellness Day is a great initiative to promote healing, and people need it more than ever, especially with everything that has been going on around us,’ shared Rahma Susanti, Director of Spa at The Apurva Kempinski Bali. ‘These activities will help us to quiet the mind and rediscover our centre. We hope that by taking part in this global movement, more people will be able to tune in to their intuition, and overcome fear.’
The programmes are available every day, and are priced at IDR 2,500,000 per person. Participants are encouraged to confirm their reservations in advance, and are entitled to a special wellness gift.
