We all know how staycations are now a norm, especially in Singapore where leaves are precious and an overseas vacation is a luxury. As a way to escape from the hustle and bustle, many Singaporeans turn to staycations. Not only does it let you unwind and recharge from the stresses of work, it’s so much easier to plan one as you can just book a package for the weekend.

Likewise, staycation choices in Singapore are aplenty, with each hotel touting their own attractions. However, so many hotels offer similar experiences and promotions, and it can be a dilemma to decide on one without wondering if you’re missing out on better deals out there.

Whether you’re looking for an excuse to go for a staycation, or looking for a special package that gives you value for money, the newly-launched Choose Wellness package from Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore will give you all the reasons to treat yourself.

1. Private Yoga Session

Don’t cross this out just because of your age, fitness level, or flexibility, because Yoga can be done by anyone. There’s a reason why there are so many devout Yogis. And the Private Yoga Session will let you experience the benefits of Yoga for yourself.

Otherwise known as “the yoga of awareness”, the Kundalini Yoga session will be led by Barbara Goursat, as taught by the iconic Yogi Bhajan. During the 90-minute session, you’ll be taught a series of asanas (yoga postures), a pranayama (breathing technique), and a meditation technique to complete the experience.

And because there are so many different yoga sets that induce various positive effects, you can choose among the following yoga sets.

Yoga set for stress relief

It’s important to understand that stress is a condition, not an illness. Too much stress and it begins to affect your thoughts, behaviors, and even health. However, once you learn to recognise the things in your life that trigger stress responses, you take an important step toward managing your stress.

In this yoga set, you’ll pick up a yoga practice that you can do regularly to help reduce stress, anxiety and tension.

Yoga set for energy boost

Yoga, with its unique synergy of body and breath work, is perfect when your reserves are running low.

Learn a nifty trick or two on how you can get an energy boost from just practicing Yoga.

Yoga set for flexibility

Age is measured by the flexibility of the spine: to stay young, stay flexible.

This series of works will stimulate all 26 vertebrae from the base of your spine to the top, and in turn, you’ll feel a boost of spiritual power within you.

Yoga set for weight loss

Yoga teaches you to use your own body weight to tone, strengthen, and lengthen muscles. You become leaner and when you create lean muscles tissue, you burn more calories, even when you’re resting.

Yoga also helps rid the body of excess water and bloating.

Yoga set for woman

For the ladies, Yoga can show you how to embrace the feminine energy to enhance your physical and spiritual development. Learn how you can elevate your consciousness, live your dream and celebrate the beauty of womanhood.

3. Mentoring in Mindfulness Session

It’s easy to fall into the ‘Singaporean habit’ of complaining about things. Whether work or school, we’ve all gone through stressful phases where we get agitated and upset by the littlest triggers. But as the saying goes, it’s all in the mind, and a positive mindset makes a difference.

Meditation is a good way to cleanse our minds of the incessant mental chatter, and it benefits us in many ways from reducing stress and increasing happiness, to improving our cardiovascular and immune health.

Even if you’re a skeptic of such a practice, give this 90-minute Mentoring in Mindfulness Session a shot. Be guided by KRI-certified Kundalini Yogi Barbara Goursat on how to create stillness within yourself where you do not react to the unceasing flow of the mind. You’ll be surprised at how the tools and techniques can actually help in your day-to-day life.

4. Physical Function, Mobility and Strength Test (60 minutes)
