The annual wellness workshop took place from June 15-18 and was conducted by life coach extraordinaire Hayden Rhodes from Royal Phuket Marina Health Club; nutritional specialist Craig Burton; Phuket’s own yoga aficionado Kim White; the gifted artist Christine Reilly; and last but not least certified pure therapeutic grand essential oils Kathy Russell.

Executive Chef Dietmar Spitzer and his skilled kitchen team spiced up the wellness workshop with nutritious meals.

All participants who are passionate in health and wellness, embarked on a journey toward a more complete understanding of the relationship between mind and body, learned the basics of yoga, meditation, life tips and personal nutrition, and applied aromatherapy and art therapy to healing on every level: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

The wellness workshop kicked off with a gentle “rise and shine find your flow and movement medicine” session by Hayden, a vitality and celebrity coach who quoted that “Sitting is the new smoking”.
