Strike A Pose With Yoga Rebel Tara Stiles

July 26, 2014 Spa & Wellness No Comments Email Email

Celebrating the revolutionary fitness program, FIT with Tara Stiles, being rolled out in all 45 of the W hotels around the world, W Hong Kong flips the traditional idea of fitness on its head with a non-traditional approach to working out wherever you are, be it in the rooms or outside of the hotel.



Together with free yoga sessions given by yoga professionals and even W retreat yoga packages, rebels of the beauty regime can rise and shine having their body and mindset polished in a uniquely W way.

“The W guest has a true ‘work hard, play hard’ mentality and wants to look fabulous yet have fun while getting fit,” said Peter Hildebrand, General Manager, W Hong Kong “ through our partnership with Hong Kong perspective yoga community, we’ve created an energetic program designed to celebrate the body and 24/7 access to an interactive workout that can easily be incorporated into the busiest of jet-setting lifestyles”

FIT, the W brand’s updated and renamed global gym concept, has recently been refreshed with a more modern and dynamic approach to fitness. Vibrant wall murals celebrate male and female forms against a unique backdrop inspired by the destination, while pulsating tunes designed to get guests in the workout mood are now available via the W Hotels App.

Stay FIT with W: FIT in-room yoga tip cards and video by Tara Stiles

Tapped to create the exclusive in-room workouts for the FIT program, Stiles – founder and owner of Strala Yoga, the high-energy movement system that ignites freedom – locked herself in the suites of several W Hotels and imagined the needs of the W traveler. Her non-purist take on yoga offers a refreshing alternative to tradition and offers a modern spin on the beloved practice. The result is four exclusive workouts that are printed on in-room tip cards and available via video in every W room and suite of W Hong Kong. Simply switch to Channel 50 of W Hong Kong’s in-room TV and follow Stiles to get refreshingly glamorous. The workouts include:
