Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa will launch a new “Comprehensive Optimal Fitness” program. It is the ideal program for regular exercisers who wish to develop their workouts while also seeking support in finding a balance between exercise regimens, relaxation techniques, optimum nutrition and a mindful lifestyle. Following its holistic approach to health and wellbeing, Kamalaya’s newest program integrates personal fitness training, yoga and stretching as well as nutritional guidance, emotional and mental support complemented by carefully selected wellness treatments.
A state-of-the-art modern fitness centre with 25 meter outdoor lap pool has just been added this year, at the highest point of the resort with stunning panoramic views over the Gulf of Thailand. With more space, the new fitness program, a larger fitness team and the gym housing an array of the latest equipment for cardio, resistance, strengthening, weight, Pilates and TRX training, Kamalaya is now taking its fitness experiences to a top level.
Starting off with a holistic fitness evaluation and focusing on personal training as well as individual yoga, stretching and aqua classes, Kamalaya’s team of fitness and wellness experts can address specific fitness goals and areas to suit individual needs, developing a regime that is beneficial and sustainable for the guest while promoting optimum results. As well as the core daily training sessions which are spread across seven and ten night program durations, “Comprehensive Optimal Fitness” includespersonal mentoring and meditation with one of Kamalaya’s Meditation & Life Enhancement Mentors and nutritional guidance by a naturopath. Daily sessions in the Far Infrared Sauna and specific wellness treatments such as Asian Foot and Hand Massage, Ayurvedic and Thai Massage have been designed to work synergistically with physical exercise, soothing and relaxing the body after training, increasing circulation and boosting results.
Karina Stewart, co-founder of Kamalaya and Master of Traditional Chinese Medicine says, “Physical activity is foundational for our overall health, vitality and wellbeing. It has a positive impact on the body, our emotional health, mental clarity and life fulfilment. While some of us may need inspiration and motivation to establish and maintain a regular fitness routine, others may go to extremes, only focusing on the goal, such as excessive training, but losing sight of the process along the way. In line with our philosophy that emphasizes balance as a key for vibrant health, our new fitness program integrates various approaches to enhance wellbeing on a physical, mental and emotional level, supporting each guest to reach their fitness goals in a healthy, sustainable and most beneficial way.”
All Kamalaya guests can also choose from a variety of holistic fitness activities. Daily group classes include various styles of yoga suitable for different levels of experience, Pilates, meditation, Pranayama, Thai Chi, Qi Gong, Fitball, Stretching, Suspension Exercises, Aqua Aerobics, Aqua Yoga and more.
