MAKATI SHANGRI-LA MANILA : Celebrates Global Wellness Day 2019

Makati Shangri-la Manila said YES to Wellness! Supporting the GREAT to be Well Movement in style.

This year, Makati Shangri-La, Manila strongly advocates wellness by launching a campaign, GREAT to be Well, on Global Wellness Day, June 8, 2019.  Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts around the world are inviting guests, colleagues, and communities to say “Yes to Wellness” in this international celebration of holistic health and well-being.

Last Saturday was an awesome experience for me and my daughter. We’re so happy to be part of Makati Shangri-La, Manila's GREAT to be Well Movement with Coaches Jim and Toni Saret. Totally a BLAST! It was a day with loads of fun! With lots of learning, challenging workout plus super exciting prizes that was given away.

It was good to see amazing people of different ages, sizes and shapes. Giving their best to follow the steps and all the movements without a fuss.

I missed the yoga class marathon for some errands. At 10:00am, we're still able to have a taste of  some healthy breakfast before we proceed to the sweating room. But kidding aside, it was the best "sweat day" of my life. 

Around 10:00 am, we're able to join the Dance Fitness Marathon. It was open for all ages, that's why my daughter joined me on the dance floor. The energy of the crowd was contagious, made really enjoy the workout.

Even Executive Chef Canuti and Hotel Manager, Udo Wittich joined the dance workout. Aren't they stunning?

To cap off each of these experiences, Executive Chef Nicola Canuti’s team served nourishing snacks and a healthy lunch. The food were all appetizing yet absolutely healthy.

Coaches Jim and Toni Saret discussed and focused about the power of holistic nutrition to heal our body. I learned how plant based food can heal our body. So interesting, just got some new discoveries today. 

Chef did a demonstration and discussion of the importance of juicing and how it can help lose weight, fight cancer and heal our body from within.

Here's the most challenging part , circuit +groupX challenge experience. I watched the circuit flow and decided to go for the pound workout instead. It was an hour of circuit training or an hour of exciting mash-up class of your choice.

I had this awesome first time experience of Pound workout. We used two drum sticks for the entire workout. By putting effort on hitting the sticks together and hitting the floor, I really felt the intense energy around the area. Truly, another day to remember.

And beside me was my blue Hydro Flask, an ever reliable tumbler for my fresh cold water. Because anytime time of the day, we have to stay hydrated. Bringing water with us can save us time from de-hydration especially with this real hot season.

Several generous brands also showed their support for this wellness advocacy as participants enjoyed special raffle prizes from Under Armour, Hydro Flask, Garmin, Anker, Eufy, Novuhair, Bewell-C, Dr. Kong Philippines, Johnson Fitness, Atsui and Pili BeautyThe exciting raffle prizes made the experience even more awesome.

Makati Shangri-La, Manila’s GREAT to be Well program is an exciting journey for all.  Wellness retreats, inspirational talks, tennis tournaments, other fitness challenges and classes will continue until September, in observation of World Wellness Weekend.
