The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong to host Naam Yoga weekend retreat by Anastasia Williams this October

HONG KONG, 2016-Jun-02 — /Travel PR News/ — This October, in a first for the city, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will host exclusive classes, one-to-one private therapy sessions, and a weekend retreat package, led by the renowned Naam Yoga pioneer, Anastasia Williams.

The first to introduce Naam and Harmonyum Healing to Australia and now to Asia, Williams brings twenty years of extensive knowledge, practice and study to this unique style of yoga that involves a synthesis of yogic asana (movement), mudra (hand postures), breath, rhythm, stretching, acupressure and vocal vibration infused with Universal Kabbalah.

“Benefits of this style of yoga include balancing brain, glandular, digestive and nervous system functions, reducing emotional and mental disturbances, relieving anxiety and depression and slowing down the aging process. After all, happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present,” says Helene Almgren, Director of Spa and Wellness of The Oriental Spa.

Naam is suitable for all ages and abilities and, while a weekend retreat will provide long-term benefits, individual classes will also leave attendees feeling revitalized, connected and confident.

Williams also specializes in Harmonyum Healing, a unique gentle form of bodywork that helps connect physical, mental, emotional and energetic intelligence, consciousness and collective functions.

“It is ideal for those seeking healing and insight on a more personalized level with a deep sense of peace, and has been described as akin to 20 years of meditation,” Williams says.

The two rejuvenating retreats, available from 7 to 9 October or 14 to 16 October, are each limited to 16 persons and are priced at HKD 7,895 +10% service charge including yogi lunches and morning smoothies. For guests wishing  to stay zen the full weekend, bookings can be made for two-night accommodation, breakfast, set lunch, daily smoothie and a selection of one of the hotel’s newest signature in-room bath experience package at HKD 15,800 + 10% service charge per person per room or at HKD 22,800 + 10% service charge for two persons in one double room. The Urban Retreats are dedicated respectively to ‘Vitality and Vibrancy in the Modern World’ and ‘Courage, Confidence and Self-Love.’

Designed as an exclusive ‘staycation-style’ retreat, the packages include morning and afternoon yoga sessions, access to the hotel’s state-of-the-art Spa heat and water facilities, use of yoga mats and props, delicious lunches and fresh smoothies. And there is plenty of time to enjoy the luxury accommodation, the hotel amenities or to simply relax beside the swimming pool and discover why The Oriental Spa is one of only nine hotel spas in the world to attain Triple Five Star ratings in the Forbes Travel Guide.

Sign up for one or both, we think it’s the perfect way to relax, rejuvenate and recharge!
