A gratitude blessing on the coast of Vietnam, nature bathing in Malaysian mangroves, power yoga in Maldives, mindful nutrition in Thailand and tree-top meditation in Bali: Four Seasons Resorts of Asia invites guests to transcend borders and take a virtual wellness journey across five diverse destinations.
Anchored in the key themes of resilience, self-care and energy healing, a new online series, “Live Well With Four Seasons,” will see resident experts at resorts in Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Thailand and Vietnam lead viewers in engaging online sessions from June through to December 2021. Drawing on global expertise and local wisdom, each complimentary session will be open to the public via Instagram or Facebook Live, and will remain available on-demand for anyone needing a virtual dose of Asian healing traditions.
“Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region for wellness travel and offers incredible destination-inspired experiences – but if you can’t yet visit us, we are coming to you,” says Luisa Anderson, Regional Spa Director for Four Seasons Asia-Pacific. “The new Live Well series enables people anywhere in the world to connect with our resident practitioners at Four Seasons Resorts of Asia properties. Participants in the online sessions will learn techniques to maintain a positive outlook, build resilience and strengthen the sense of community globally, as the antidote to feelings of lockdown and isolation.”
Following Global Wellness Day on June 12, the Live Well program will continue for the rest of the year with regular sessions on the last Wednesday of every month, starting June 30, 2021.
