BANGKOK – August 3, 2020 – Since the end of March, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has offered guests, followers and friends a daily dose of live chats, cooking, meditation and yoga classes, marine biology schooling and fun-filled ‘behind the scenes’ moments from resorts to provide support, positivity and connection at home.
As lockdowns ease, not everyone is ready to jump on a plane and the prospect of IRL classes might feel overwhelming. Therefore, as a brand that firmly believes in the power of travel to recharge and reconnect, Six Senses has unveiled the next six chapters to its #AtHomeWithSixSenses story. The beautiful landscapes, support from wellness experts and unexpected encounters will continue to provide inspiration wherever, and at whatever pace, it feels right for people.
#AtHomeWithSixSenses content will continue at sixsenses.com and @SixSensesHotelsResortsSpas and @SixSensesSpas to educate, entertain and provide an escape (albeit a virtual one) so as not to rush the process of working out what constitutes the ‘new normal’. It has been this spirit of togetherness that has brought so much joy, inspiration and a sense of community to Six Senses hosts, friends and people from around the world.
Chapter 1: Wellness
Pioneering wellness is a core brand value. Tune in and understand how the popular wellness screening can provide a springboard to long-lasting health changes, how to keep the whole family positive and how to let go with yoga, and how to boost physical and cognitive performance with biohacks.
Chapter 2: Eat
Roasting, broiling, frying or grilling, or enjoying the fruits of an on-site organic garden with cocktail in hand? There are so many options for the brand’s Eat With Six Senses experts Jonathan and Celia as they continue to share top nutritional insights, recipes and host cooking secrets from Executive Chefs. This chapter is packed with popular kitchen characters and is as light-hearted as it is delicious.
Chapter 3: Grow
Well-being starts young at Six Senses, and this is a great time to look at the six dimensions of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual), the foundation for Grow With Six Senses. This chapter goes behind the scenes of the Junior Marine Biology and Junior Eco Warrior programs, demonstrates how to flex the spine like a cat in a kids’ yoga class and stay calm during a mindfulness journey (with a bear who will pay a surprise visit).
Chapter 4: Sustainability
From turtle talks and spotting black-shanked douc langurs to upcycling glass bottles into jewelry and learning about the first plastic-free kitchen – these daily stories will showcase the brand’s commitment to sustainability and encourage people to take responsibility now and help model mindsets for the future generations.
Chapter 5: Sleep
Sleep is much more than just pillow talk. Six Senses in-house experts come together once again to help make concrete changes in order drop off quickly, sleep soundly and wake up feeling fantastic.
Chapter 6: From the Heart of Six Senses
Six Senses hosts are the beating heart of the brand. They live by its values and project what the brand stands for every day. For the past few months, they have created the magic behind each meaningful virtual experience and will continue sharing heart-warming stories, lessons learned and experiences lived.
Friends of Six Senses
The much-loved weekly talks hosted by Six Senses Wellness Pioneer Anna Bjurstam will continue to take place every Tuesday with leading experts from around the world ready to share their insights and practical tools.
On August 11, the best-selling author and celebrity therapist, Marisa Peer, will talk about the ways to reprogram the immune system at a cellular level and share powerful tools to demonstrate that it is possible to rewire one’s thoughts and beliefs to produce life-changing health results. On August 18, marine biologist and the author of Blue Mind, Wallace J. Nichols, will share how being part of something bigger than oneself really moves people.
