Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Mauritius is delighted to announce its very first “Wellness Month” which will take place from 1 February to 9 March 2018. The programme has been specifically designed to kick-start the New Year in good shape and help guests regain equilibrium following the festive season. With a specialist visiting yoga practitioner from 25 February until 9 March, the resort will offer guests an opportunity to recuperate, enhancing both their mental and physical wellbeing, through an in-depth wellness programme and a host of wellness inspired initiatives.
The wellness programme includes more than 20 yoga sessions conducted by Aria Crescendo, an internationally acclaimed yoga instructor, singer and DJ. Over the years, Aria built her reputation and offered yoga courses to many Hollywood stars including Jared Leto, Ashton
Kutcher and Karlie Kloss. During her stay at Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Aria will lead Sunrise Yoga sessions on Republik beach to help guests kick-start their day with a relaxed mind and body. The sessions will incorporate mediation and encourage guests to address any personal issues that they may be struggling with such as anxiety or insomnia. Aria will also conduct invigorating classes at sunset aimed at those seeking a more dynamic workout. The “Warrior Yoga” sessions will focus on helping improve guests’ flexibility and strength, as well as boosting their immune system and overall sense of wellbeing.
Aria Crescendo is passionate about yoga and views the practice as a means to enjoy and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Aria is a natural born entertainer and studied performing arts before going on to perform with the legendary Crazy Horse dance troupe. Her residency will highlight the traditional benefits of daily yoga practice, whilst incorporating Aria’s inherent sense of entertainment and fun. In addition to the yoga sessions, Aria will also be showcasing her artistic talents with a series of musical acts for guests to enjoy in the evenings at the resort’s glamorous bars.
The yoga courses can be combined with aromatherapy treatments from CHI, The Spa, using Decléor’s premium range of products, well known for its natural essential oils made of plant extracts that arouse the senses. The firming rituals improve skin toning and body sculpting by redefining the silhouette and targeting areas of concern, while the relaxing massage rituals promote overall wellbeing, release stress and re-energise the body.
For a holistic wellness approach, the fitness and spa experiences will be complemented with healthy and tasty dishes served across all the restaurants. The beach restaurant will also offer a specially curated 3-course healthy menu for lunch and dinner. Together with Aria, the resort’s chefs will synchronize their efforts to create menus improving wellness for guests visiting during this period, ranging from low carb, detox, low fat, antioxidant, organic, high fibre content, and bio to gluten free options. Dishes on offer will include gluten free fresh pasta, wheat cress pesto, tofu and tomatoes; steamed local fish with ginger and lime; corn-fed chicken in crusted of Chia seeds and avocado and ginger gazpacho.
