To mark the 10th annual Global Wellness Day on 12th June 2021, Chiva-Som and Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som will be hosting 12-hours of complimentary virtual classes accessible from around the world.
The one-day event celebrates health and wellbeing and is designed to increase global consciousness of living a better life. In honour of this, expert advisors and practitioners from both Chiva-Som in Thailand and the soon-to-launch Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som in Qatar, will be streaming a series of complimentary educational activities such as talks, training exercises and wellness workshops, online throughout the day.
First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day was established as the ‘first’ day dedicated to living well and has now been accepted worldwide. With the slogan ‘One day, can change your whole life’, GWD is based on the simple premise of increasing global consciousness of living a better life, even if it is just for one day, by drawing a focus on healthier lifestyle choices.
Centred on this year’s theme on ‘Protecting Mental Wellness’ for both children and adults during and after the pandemic, Chiva-Som has curated a programme of interactive classes and talks focussing on health, managing stress, nutrition and family connection, to not only raise awareness of living well on the day but to help individuals make lasting changes. Classes will draw on Chiva-Som’s holistic approach to health and wellness, as well as Zulal Wellness Resort’s concepts and philosophies centred on Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine (TAIM).
