Saturday, June 10, 2017 marks the sixth annual Global Wellness Day (GWD) celebration and the third time the special day is being celebrated around the world. The mantra for this special day is “One Day Can Change Your Whole Life.” The movement was started by cancer survivor, Belgin Aksoy Berkin, who has since has inspired an international network of over 85 Global Wellness Day Ambassadors, 3 Advisors & 21 Key Supports to organize complimentary wellness events in over 4,000 locations in 100 countries this year. Global Wellness Day’s simple but effective pink paddles saying “I SAY YES TO WELLNESS” have become synonymous with the day and its good living manifesto is simple and clear. One of the place that support the Global Wellness Day movement is Hilton Bali Resort.
The Global Wellness Day at Hilton Bali Resort is also collaborating with Mandara Spa Asia. The event starts with Power Walk in the morning while enjoying a fresh air in the surrounding hotel area. A selection of traditional herbal drinks, or locally known as “Jamu” are available after the session for guests to taste. There’s two flavours to choose from: Jamu Beras Kencur and Jamu Kunyit Asam. The wellness journey continues with Healing Yoga session in the afternoon presented by a professional Yoga teacher that allows guests to a calming session of the mind, body and soul. Along with physical activities, the wellness journey also encourages guests to become environmentally responsible by planting the traditional medicinal plants or also known as “Apotek Hidup” at the hotel’s cliff top garden. ALl of these activities are free of charge to all guests. Such a fun day!
