Every year, Westin held a charity event for Unicef. Different from the previous years, this time Westin decided to do a Beach Family Yoga event. Hundreds of people showed up for this good cause and create an unforgettable wellness event. What’s New Bali is proud to support the event and report from Westin Bali.
Hundreds of people lined up by the beach side last Sunday, with the calm voice from the stage telling them to breathe in, breathe out, as the yoga session is about to begin. This is how the Beach Family Yoga started, an initiative created by Westin Bali and UNICEF to raise awareness and donation to provide access to clean water and good sanitation for children throughout the world. It is a heart breaking fact that every day 1400 children die due to diseases related to poor sanitation. So, why not do something that will be good for our wellness, and do something for the children at the same time?
This energizing activity starts at 4pm on a stretch of white sand beach overlooking the glistening waters of the Indian Ocean. Since this is a beach family yoga event, you can see lots of children running around. This is an opportunity for families to spend quality time together.
The class will be conducted by the resort’s resident Wellness Specialist, Jitendra Pokhriyal. The one-hour session involved gentle stretching and synchronized breathing exercises to promote physical and spiritual wellbeing. There is a 10 minutes pause because the Westin Bali yoga team had prepared a stunning yoga performance with various advanced yoga poses. Afterwards, Jitendra also slip in some interesting yoga poses that participant can try with their loved ones.
Other highlights during the event will include lively entertainment, interactive food stalls and a fully supervised kid’s corner to keep little ones occupied. Kids helps themselves to some delicious banana popsicles from Paletas Wey and yummy food from Westin Bali.
With the theme “Shining Bright for 20 Years & Beyond”, this inspiring event celebrates the resort’s ongoing commitment to the UNICEF and its Check Out For Children program. All proceeds raised will aid UNICEF funding of programs to provide clean water and better hygiene for children in developing countries. The partnership has committed to provide all children, everywhere in Asia Pacific, with access to clean water and basic sanitation.
