Renowned Australian pilates specialist and personal trainer Rosie Gregory will help retreaters tune into themselves by combining muscle and mental training to boost healing, stress relief and health.

The Sanchaya Introduces Mindfulness Retreat With An Indulgent Bent

BINTAN ISLAND, Indonesia (January 30, 2018) – While most practitioners of mindfulness retreat to the pagoda and the sangha for space and community, The Sanchaya is stepping up as an alternative venue for a retreat that indulges silence and calm, to be sure, but great food and fine wine, as well.

The 10-hectare beachfront estate has joined forces with renowned Australian pilates specialist and personal trainer Rosie Gregory and app-based lifestyle and fitness platform GuavaPass to introduce the inaugural “The Sanchaya Sangha – An Indulgent Mindfulness Retreat” from June 4-8 this year.

The intimate four-night retreat balances morning beach boot camp sessions, meditation workshops and afternoon yoga and pilates with delectable spreads from the resort’s kitchens, premium vintages from its cellars, European cheese and rarified conversation.

The Sanchaya’s estate manager Magnus Olovson said the experience was designed for those in need of a getaway, combining some physical exertion and meditation with the finer things in life, such as dialogue with like-minded people.

“At The Sanchaya, we have an idea that mindfulness need not always be accompanied by abstention,” Olovson said. “It’s like Plato once said, ‘Nothing more excellent than wine was ever granted by the gods to man’.”

Gregory, who divides her time between Singapore, Australia and London and helps clients worldwide develop and strengthen mind-body connection, said participants would tune into themselves by combining muscle and mental training to boost healing, stress relief and health.

“But we won’t take ourselves too seriously,” she said. “All too often, we try to change our habits drastically in the continuing mayhem of our everyday lives and soon discard our well-intended goals into the ‘too hard’ bin.”

Rhyce Lein, GuavaPass’s general manager for Singapore, said that relocation to an environment removed from the usual stressors, triggers and schedules could enable small, sustainable shifts into the mind and body.

“The retreat is a prime chance to unload tension, reset and cultivate a new state of mind and, of course, have a whole lot of fun training with like-minded individuals,” he said.

As a fledgling community, or sangha, the retreaters will gather together to chat and share ideas at venues throughout The Sanchaya (Sanskrit for ‘collection’), just a short ferry ride from Singapore. These venues include the glass-walled wine cellar and wine and cheese tasting area, Decanter, and at the outdoor Tasanee Grill restaurant by the infinity pool with the ocean beyond.

Catering to a maximum of 10 people, the retreat is priced at USD3760 for a single participant with their own accommodation, and USD 5400 for two participants sharing accommodation, inclusive of the mindfulness program, accomodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner including house beverages, as well as pre-dinner cocktails and canapes.

The Sanchaya is just an hour from Singapore and a world apart. With unrivalled luxury, tropical glamour and world-class service, the exclusive beachfront estate features 29 villas and suites plus a stunning private residence with spectacular views of the ocean. The Sanchaya is also home to two restaurants for its residing guests’ exclusive use, 24-hour in-villa dining, a bar, wine cellar, library, boardroom, 50-meter long infinity pool, intimate spa, gymnasium, beachside yoga pavilion, croquet lawn, herbs and vegetable garden and much more. Opened in December 2014, the estate has won numerous awards including a coveted spot in the Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2017 “Top Resorts in Asia” category.

GuavaPass is one of the fastest growing lifestyle and fitness platforms in Asia and the Middle East. The start-up launched in early 2015 and has rapidly become the largest provider of fitness classes in the region. The app-based platform delivers convenient access to over 100,000 superior fitness classes at over 1,000 boutique studios across 10 global cities.

Your facial skin is the best indicator of health and age than anything other area of your body, so you want to keep it looking as young and healthy as possible. If you have already tightened your face (by natural means or otherwise) you will want to keep that tightness by keeping your facial skin hydrated or those wrinkles, sags, and fine lines will be showing up faster than you can say “Thermage!” Here are 9 awesome was to moisturize your tightened skin.

1. Drink lots of water
We cannot emphasize this too much. Your body needs water, and if you don’t drink enough water on a daily basis, the first thing that will suffer is your skin.

This is because the body will draw the available water from the surface to protect the internal organs as well as avoid losing more water through evaporation. So, shrunken heads, anyone?


Conventional wisdom says you need to drink 64 ounces of water (8 8-oz glasses), but you don’t really need to drink that much. You can get 20% of that from the food you eat. That is, if you eat right. This brings us to the next way to keep your tightened skin moisturized.

2. Eat antioxidant- and water-rich food
Some foods are just good for you. They have high water content and/or antioxidants (omega-3 etc.). You probably know that antioxidants protect you inside and out from free radicals that can wither you like paper flashed with a flame thrower. This includes fish, most fruits and vegetables but let us highlight the best of them.

  • Avocado
  • Baby Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Grapefruit
  • Green Peppers
  • Herring
  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Mackerel
  • Radish
  • Rainbow Trout
  • Salmon
  • Spinach
  • Star Fruit
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Watermelon

See, it wasn’t so bad, right? Most of these you’d be happy to eat so why not make a point of it? Your skin and body will thank you for your new health lifestyle. Speaking of which…

3. Avoid smoking and alcohol
Not to be a killjoy but the toxic chemicals in the cigarette smoke wafting back to your face is full of those free radicals we are trying to avoid, and it will definitely put paid to your efforts at keeping your skin young and tight.

Alcohol is also not a good idea outside the daily glass of red wine (great source of antioxidants) because ethanol dehydrates your body. That’s why you have a hangover after you drink too much; your brain shrank. Well, not really, but it is definitely thirsty. And what did we say when the body lacks water? Yup, like a prune.

4. Exfoliate
Now that we’ve gotten the lifestyle factors out of the way, let’s get to the fun part: your beauty regimen!

The first step to keeping your skin hydrated from the outside is to get at the newer, fresher skin. Dead skin cells are harder to saturate, which is why you need to regularly exfoliate. It’s just a fancy term for removing dead skin cells.

You can do this by buying a commercial exfoliating cream, or you can make your own and save a few bucks. We recommend using leftover cooked oatmeal or yogurt as a gentle scrub, or you can try baking soda with enough honey to make a smooth paste.

Simply rub gently over your skin and leave for a few minutes before rinsing off. You face will feel fresh and clean. Exfoliate at least once a week.


5. Use a mild facial cleanser
You may have oily skin, but washing your face with something drying will only simulate your oil glands to produce more oil! So oily or dry skin, avoid using regular soap on your face.

Instead, get a mild facial cleaner to remove surface dirt without stripping it of its natural oils. You can also make your own face wash using raw honey. Simply apply to your face and leave on for a few minutes before washing off with warm (not hot) water.

And while we’re at it, avoid long, steamy showers as well. The heat will dry up your skin. Go for short, cool showers instead.

6. Use a facial mask
In addition to exfoliating and daily cleansing, you can do a weekly hydrating facial mask to get really deep into those pores and take out the nasties lurking in them. This will keep your skin smooth and prevent acne breakouts.

Again, there are excellent commercial facial masks available, but you can again use honey mixed with a few drops each of coconut or olive oil and lemon juice and apply liberally over your face and neck. Keep it on for 20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

7. Tone
Toning is essentially closing up your pores by using an astringent. Some commercially available toners are a little too strong for newly-tightened skin, so be careful when you choose one. You can also make sure it is not too strong by using apple cider vinegar instead.

Dilute 1 part vinegar with 2 parts distilled water and apply to the face with a cotton ball. Allow it to dry before putting on your moisturizer.

Don’t worry, the smell will go away! And speaking of moisturizers…

8. Use moisturizing sun block

Never forget to apply a moisturizer first thing in the morning and last thing at night after cleaning and toning your facial skin. A moisturizer helps hydrate dry skin as well as form a moisture barrier to keep water in your skin instead of escaping into the air. During the day if you go out into the sun, make sure your moisturizer has sun block with a minimum SPF rating of 15.

You can easily get a good face moisturizer, although which one will depend on your skin type. A water based moisturizer would be ideal for sensitive skin, while a moisturizer for acne prone skin may include retinoids. The best face moisturiser for dry skin may be a natural face moisturizer made of ½ cup extra-virgin coconut oil, 1 teaspoon liquid vitamin E, and 5-7 drops lavender essential oil. It takes a little time for the skin to absorb but it works fantastically as a natural moisturizer for night use.

9. Use a serum
If your skin still feels too dry even after doing all the above, you could benefit from using a serum for a few weeks. It can jump start your skin’s natural hydrating properties. Like anything else we advocate, we advise doing your research before using a commercial brand hydrating serum.


You could also try using pure argan oil. It is wonderfully hydrating and ideal for the T-zone for those with combination skin. It is readily available on Amazon and most health stores.

 Luxury Hotel Brand and America’s Premier Ballet Company, The Joffrey Ballet, Team Up to Bring On-Demand Barre Classes to Hotel Rooms Around the World

SINGAPORE – November 2, 2017 – JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, in partnership with The Joffrey Ballet, launched Behind the Barre, a series of workout videos available on-demand for travelers staying in the brand’s guestrooms, now available at JW hotels across Asia-Pacific. Behind the Barre on-demand barre classes marks the second time that JW Marriott has partnered with America’s premier ballet company.  In 2014, the two companies launched Poise and Grace, an internal training initiative for global associates of the luxury hotel brand.  Utilizing the foundations of ballet, the program was created to teach employees to exhibit finesse and gracefulness as part of their daily routines, ultimately resulting in a refined guest experience.  Behind the Barre is the first guest-facing partnership from the two storied brands, highlighting JW Marriott’s commitment to well-being by providing guests with the tools and techniques to maintain a healthy lifestyle no matter where your travels take you.
“Guests of JW Marriott are always seeking new and innovative ways to stay active while on the road,” said Christy Donato, Vice President, Global Brand Management, JW Marriott. “Our partnership with The Joffrey Ballet provides an elevated fitness experience that goes beyond the traditional in-room workout, allowing our guests to tailor their fitness routine to best fit their travel schedule.”
"We’re thrilled to partner once again with JW Marriott on the Behind the Barre video training series," said Ashley Wheater, Artistic Director of The Joffrey Ballet.

“The benefits of ballet go far beyond the barre to promote discipline and self-confidence, and can enhance any fitness plan. We’re honored to continue our partnership with JW Marriott and share Joffrey’s world class training with hotel guests around the world.” 

 Filmed at the newly opened JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa, the barre videos highlight two of Joffrey’s professional ballet dancers, showcasing fun, challenging workouts that include full-body barre method, core strength and stretching. 

Designed specifically for a guestroom environment, the workouts allow travelers to enjoy a fitness class workout in a private setting – all at their convenience. To further underpin JW Marriott’s elevated guest experience and celebrate the global ballet partnership, a ‘Barre-to-Bar’ experiential pop-up will debut in Singapore and regular barre classes will be offered at JW Marriott Singapore South Beach, the brand’s most recent landmark opening in the region.

This is the first in a series of JW Marriott Barre-to-Bar pop-ups with more planned for key gateway cities across Asia-Pacific including Shanghai and Seoul in 2018.
“We believe exceptional service starts with exceptional training. That’s why we’ve set the bar even higher by teaching our associates how to develop their natural poise and grace,” said Carol Zhou, Senior Director, Luxury Brand Management - Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “Barre is becoming a very popular workout across Asia-Pacific, particularly in China, which is why our next stop will be in Shanghai next year.” 
Visitors are invited to taste complimentary crafted signature cocktails and mocktails at the bar while watching our JW Marriott Singapore South Beach associates perform a graceful barre routine, inspired by the Joffrey Ballet training initiative for all JW Marriott staff members worldwide. Visitors are also invited to showcase their own poise and grace in our ethereal studio-inspired GIF photo booth, in which mirrors and fluid lines of lights designed to represent the fluidity of ballet movements.

The barre-themed pop-up events are open to the public today, November 2 at Ocean Centre in the city’s central business district, and will move to ION Orchard at the heart of Singapore’s lively shopping district from November 4-5. JW Marriott Singapore South Beach will also be kicking off a monthly Barre to Bar Brunch package starting November 26, which will include a morning barre workout followed by boozy Sunday brunch with free-flow Taittinger Brut champagne at Beach Road Kitchen for SGD 158++ per person.

Eden Life Centres Brings A New Level Of Holistic Wellness To Bali

E den Life Centres in the heart of Seminyak, Bali is a holistic health clinic focusing on wellness, anti-ageing and self-improvement. EDEN offers unparalleled service with real results achieved by creating balance and vitality through good nutrition, happiness, self-care, integrated learning and expert practitioner services.

Founded by Australians Deborah Vanderhoek and Duncan Angus, Eden Life Centres engages the best aesthetic, skin doctors and nutritionists using cutting-edge technologies and the finest medical-grade products. The centre brings a new level of holistic care through counsellors, healers and other therapists, creating an overall treatment lifestyle for their clients rather than a quick fix. The team at EDEN educate and nurture their clients, becoming partners in their long-term ongoing treatment programs and assisting them to meet aesthetic goals and overall lifestyle goals.

 “The wellness and medical tourism industry is the fastest growing tourism sector worldwide,” said Simone Rogers, General Manager, Eden Life Centres. “People not only want to live longer, they want to live BETTER. The rise of nutrition-based bloggers proves the world is turning to health for longevity and quality of life improvements. EDEN helps its clients to reach wellness goals through offering a wide range of holistic services.” 

 The supportive approach at EDEN, revolving around ongoing relationships with individual clients, is aimed towards people wanting to find out more about health and wellness and taking control of the holistic spectrum of their life through their choices. As clients become more knowledgeable they choose their food, choose the levels of stress they allow themselves to feel and choose treatments that support and encourage personal growth. EDEN is there the whole way to guide them through the process, allowing them to also look the best they possibly can without reverting to surgery with many alternative options.

 All new clients are introduced to Eden by the General Manager or Aesthetic Manager and have a private consultation in a comfortable intimate space to determine their individual goals. Options are discussed, then verified with practitioners, and a treatment guide is created. Personal aspects such as lifestyle, budget and medical background are all considered and confidential medical files are created.

Eden Life Centres places great emphasis on integrity and authenticity, using only the very best, 100% certified products, with the clinic meeting Australian Certification Standards. All doctors are fully accredited and nurses have over 5 years experience in medical fields in Indonesia. Having nutritionists dermatologists and general practitioners arms Eden with all the tools to properly treat clients. Key services at Eden Life Centres include:

1. The Skin Clinic to address topical skin conditions, skin texture and appearance (laser, medical facials, prescriptive medications, dermapen);

2. The Aesthetic Clinic to address contouring and aging profiles  (fillers, botox, fat dissolving and live cell treatments);

3. The Nutrition Clinic for integrated health through dietary planning, supplements and further education;

4. IV Lounge for heath, immunity, hydration and rejuvenation from within;

5. Therapists for working on the mind-body connection (counsellors, healers) A very popular signature treatment is The Skin Rejuvenation Program – a blend of a Live Cell Treatment, Carboxy and LED Light Therapy Facials.

All no downtime, pain free and with visible instant results. The Live Cell Treatment works in a similar way to the well-known PRP treatment, but captures the essence of live placenta cells that have been cultivated for their nutrition and healing properties.

As well as attracting healing collagen and providing plump skin, they provide additional nutrients to the skin and also can be taken intravenously or in a micro-needling session. It can be administered without topical anaesthesia and is not painful.

The LED Light Therapy Facial is a beautiful soothing facial that uses LED light technology developed by NASA. The treatment is non-painful and gives skin an instant visible glow and slight lift. The Carboxy Therapy facial utilises the absorbing power of Carbon Dioxide to draw out toxins and tighten skin. It works similarly to a very gentle skin peel but with no down time and a brighter result.

The cool, clean luxurious feel of Eden Life Centres has been carefully designed to help people feel welcome, comfortable, relaxed and safe. Designed by J.R Kraal, EDEN is a peaceful sanctuary in the centre of ultra-busy Seminyak. Bali was chosen as the site of the first of the Eden Life Centres for its progressive, eclectic and artistic blend of expats, tourists, business people and locals.

There is a culture of healthy living in Bali, with people open to investing in their health and wellness, making it the perfect position. With wellness tourism becoming a major growth industry in the Asian region, Eden Life Centres are certainly looking to expand into other Asian markets.

Beth McGroarty, Research Director at the Global Wellness Institute, summarises for us the top 8 trends in wellness, spas and travel for 2017 identified by 100s of experts at the 2016 Global Wellness Summit:

  1. SAUNA REINVENTED Something both hot and very cool: the reinvention of sauna that’s underway. From “Sauna Aufguss” events where “sauna-meisters” conduct theatrical performances of infusions, song and dance. To hip, social “amphitheater” or “hangout” saunas (whether Helsinki’s new high-design Löyly sauna complex or Scotland’s new loch-side “Hot Box” with DJ and bar). To quirky pop-up saunas floating on lakes or hanging from bridges. To trendy urban “sweat lodges” serving up infrared sauna treatments, like NYC’s Higher Dose. No longer a solitary, “meh” experience, the new, spectacular, social saunas are some “outside of the box” thinking…literally.
  2. WELLNESS ARCHITECTURE Architecture has long been preoccupied with surface aesthetics: “starchitects” designing to wow or shock, but with little attention paid to creating buildings that improve the health of the humans living within. Change is finally here: “living buildings” that grow their own energy; responsive architecture that tailors indoor health experiences for every inhabitant; phone apps alerting you when you’re entering a “sick” building; dawn-simulating lighting easing you into your day. Everything “built” is getting reengineered: from indoor air quality (a killer) to sleep and acoustics.
  3. SILENCE In a world of 24/7 connectedness, wellness destinations are embracing a dramatic approach to “turning off” the noise: true silence. For example, the first completely “Silent Spa” (with stunning church-inspired architecture) just opened at Austria’s Therme Laa Hotel. And new “wellness monasteries” are on the rise: retreats opening in, and infused with the silent, contemplative values of, ancient sacred spaces – like Italy’s soulful Eremito, with no WiFi/phone signal and silent, candlelit dinners. Properties like Germany’s Brenner’s Park have even installed “digital kill switches” for totally silent rooms. And “silent” restaurants, salons, gyms, stores and airports are all being unveiled… 
  4. ART & CREATIVITY TAKE CENTER STAGE Born of a storied history, but forgotten of late, the creativity-wellness-spa connection is making a comeback: with more art, music, literature and dance (both as experienced and “to do”) at the center of more wellness experiences. Look for more performance, like at Germany’s famed spa resort, Schloss Elmau, where musicians and writers “play-to-stay” (making possible 200+ concerts a year) – or live classical violin while taking the waters at the UK’s new Gainsborough Bath Spa Hotel. We’ll see more sophisticated, “beyond the adult coloring book” programming launch, like painting classes under the stars – as well as a profusion of multi-sensory experiences, from sound baths to “yoga concerts.” The creative arts have a future starring role in wellness. 
  5. WELLNESS REMAKES BEAUTY Beauty, the goliath industry ($1 trillion) of the $3.7 trillion wellness economy, is remaking itself to meet the needs of a wellness-oriented population obsessed with authenticity and “inner beauty.” From an avalanche of eatable/drinkable beauty-boosters and clean, organic cosmetics – to medical evidence for a new “neuroaesthetics” (the brain is wired to respond to beauty) – the “beauty comes from within” concept will keep gaining on superficial (topical) models. And preventative approaches will keep gaining on the old “cosmetic repair.” We will continue to learn (and snap up solutions that tackle) how beauty is far more than skin deep. 
  6. THE FUTURE IS MENTAL WELLNESS When it comes to mental wellness, our world has a problem: depression and anxiety is skyrocketing, and by 2030, the former will be the #1 health issue, outranking obesity (WHO). So look for dramatically more “healthy mind” approaches in coming years. Wellness retreats and spas are adding neuroscientists and psychotherapists (like London’s ESPA Life at Corinthia Hotel). Meditation is not only radically mainstreaming (even on-demand in hotel rooms), but spawning creative new breeds (from “dream” to “floating” meditation). We’ll see everything from new part-mind/part-body workout brands to apps that track your mental state (think MindBit, not FitBit). Because “mind” will finally get equal billing with “body.” 
  7. EMBRACING THE C-WORD The wellness world is waking up to the needs of a surprisingly underserved population: cancer patients. For instance, Julie Bach’s pioneering “Wellness for Cancer” program means wellness companies/spas are finally trained to deliver comfort (and dignity) to cancer sufferers. From ESPA’s “Nurture and Support” program to Natura Bissé’s “oncological aesthetics” to Two Bunch Palms’ “Mindful Touch Massage”, wellness practitioners are finally opening their hearts and healing practices to cancer patients. 
  8. BEYOND THE GHETTOS OF WELLNESS In a world where rising income and “wellbeing” inequalities are fueling a populist backlash, a wellness industry that’s become narrowly associated with rich elites (those $300 yoga pants and Reiki sessions) will change. More wellness businesses will give back to the “other 99%”, like “Yoga Gives Back” helping poor women in India – or Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn, where every dollar of profit goes back to its economically-challenged island community. 

A “Wellness Tourism 2.0” will rise: a development model thinking beyond the (often elite, “gated”) property to creating whole towns, regions and even nations, where a comprehensive wellness vision (from protected nature to a sustainable, healthy food supply) benefits BOTH locals and tourists. The new wave of low-cost “wellness” is part of this democratization: like more affordable healthy supermarkets and spa chains.

But with some future mindfulness about “rock-bottom” vs. “fair” pricing, given the human labor that delivers so many of these healthy experiences.
