Go back to the enewsletter Aman Wellness a new c

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterAman Wellness, a new concept to be introduced across the Aman collection in 2016, promises to reach further and deeper with the dual introduction of its Individual Wellness Immersions, together with a parallel series of date-led Group Retreat Experiences, headed by globally celebrated health specialists, and held at a range of Aman’s most outstanding spa destinations.Drawing on the ancient healing modalities for which Aman spas have become renowned, both the Individual Wellness Immersions and the Group Retreat Experiences seek to take guests through an invigorating process of renewal, designed to ground, purify and deeply nourish.The first Individual Wellness Immersions will launch at Amanpuri and Amanbagh from 1 August 2016, complemented by an ongoing calendar of Group Retreat Experiences taking place throughout the year.Amanbagh in Rajasthan and Amanpuri in Phuket, Aman’s flagship holistic hideaways, provide powerful environments for change with carefully calibrated programmes which balance every aspect of health and wellness. The new Individual Wellness Immersions are based on a personalised routine which includes daily spa treatments, a considered diet or cleanse, suggested exercise and expert advice. Sensitively curated, programmes range from three to 14 nights at Amanpuri and four to 21 night life turnarounds at Amanbagh.In one of the most peaceful pockets of Phuket, the tropical realm of Amanpuri offers the ideal natural setting for an immersive retreat, offering a distinct path back to wellness. As well as initial assessments and regular consultations, every day of an Individual Wellness Immersion is personalised to include two to three movement and specialist therapy sessions, a 60- or 90-minute spa treatment and group movement classes.Amanpuri’s Immersions are based on four different principles. They include the Fitness Immersion, designed by sports therapists and nutrition experts for those who want to improve their fitness levels, and incorporating a wide variety of movement workouts from Muay Thai boxing to beach boot camp classes, circuit training, Pilates and yoga. Meanwhile the Weight Loss Immersion aims to remove the emotional barriers faced in managing and shifting weight; it includes water-based movement sessions to assist in the reduction of stress and inflammation in the body. The Cleanse Immersion is ideal for those who want to reduce stress levels and promote self-healing through a pronounced return to internal homeostasis. Finally, the meditative Awareness Immersion is designed for those wishing to tap into their inner realm, heightening awareness and daily mindfulness. Meditation, yoga and silent reflection combine with grounding modalities such as craniosacral therapy, reconnective healing and Reiki to encourage inner stillness.Escape to the whisper-quiet retreat that is Amanbagh, a secret garden oasis set amongst India’s rugged Aravalli Hills, to embrace the ancient wisdom and powerful long-term benefits of Ayurveda. Drawing on the ancient healing system of India, Amanbagh’s four to 21-night Ayurvedic Immersions offer a unique opportunity to experience what is believed to be the longest surviving complete system of knowledge in the world. Amanbagh’s in-house Ayurvedic physician oversees every detail.A calendar of devoted date-led retreats range from three to ten days in length and take place in an atmosphere of active healing at Aman’s key spa destinations. Each is unique, yet all have been designed to help bring guests back to balance, into a state of natural equilibrium from which each individual can feel the very best they can be. Showcasing the skills of globally renowned specialists who work in synergy towards the realisation of the guests’ personal goals, the retreats exclusively bring together handpicked contemporary masters of their field, from tai chi masters and spiritual mentors, to sports scientists and nutritionists.Amongst the variety of the Group Retreat Experiences will be ‘Spiritual Immersion’, which will take place at Amankora in Bhutan between 13 to 21 September. Led by Dr Karma Phuntsho, a Buddhist scholar who will guide a journey both literally and spiritually between the five lodges of Amankora, the retreat will combine cultural adventures with yoga, meditation, spa treatments, and lectures amidst the dramatic landscape of Bhutan.Aman’s three resorts in Bali, Amandari, Amankila and Amanusa will host retreats in August, September and October respectively, all of which will concentrate on Alignment & Awareness, with a focus on mindful living. Further Group Retreat Experiences include a five day retreat between 1 and 9 October, combining yoga and bodywork to address issues such as low energy and sleep disorders at Amanemu, Aman’s onsen-only resort in Shima which launched in March 2016.Later in the year between 1 and 15 November in Hangzhou, China, Amanfayun will also host a five day retreat focussing on balancing body and mind, reducing stress and chronic pain and achieving overall increased wellbeing. All Aman Wellness experiences have been designed to encourage a process of release, allowing participants to leave behind negative holding patterns and embrace a strong newness of spirit, whilst taking what they have learnt to give them fresh intentions and the knowledge to adopt a more meaningful and reflective way of living.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

But instead, the UFC opted to have Cyborg take one-off attraction fights against overmatched competition at a 140-pound catchweight and Dana White and the UFC insisted that they would not create a featherweight division due to lack of competitors. Then, earlier this year, the UFC had Holly Holm fight Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural women’s 145-pound title. It was a decision that many viewed as a blatant cash grab in an attempt to gloss up an otherwise mundane bout with a shiny belt in an effort to boost pay-per-view sales. And while some fans were unhappy with the decision, Cyborg was removed from fighting while clearing up an issue with USADA and was assumed to face the winner upon her return, so everything would come out in the wash.Except that didn’t happen. De Randamie won a contentious decision over Holm and then refused to defend her title against Cyborg. Ultimately, this decision on de Randamie’s part led the UFC to strip her of the belt. Speaking recently with Combate (h/t Bloody Elbow), Cyborg said she had been expecting this result for some time because she knew de Randamie would never fight her.”We knew she never wanted to fight me. There was some people in her camp that warned me about it, they said she wasn’t going to fight me. I wanted to close the fight as soon as possible. I believe she knew they would do that. I don’t think it came as a surprise, or that she learned about it on the internet. The UFC was in touch with her manager, they wanted to put me against her, but I knew it wouldn’t be that quick.””Maybe she was dropping to bantamweight to become a two-division champion. I guess that was her excuse, but she thought she couldn’t defend and keep her belt. She didn’t want the fight. Her first excuse was saying her hand was hurt, then she said she had family problems, then she called me a cheater. It was a new excuse everyday.”In her post-fight interview with Joe Rogan inside the cage, de Randamie said she wanted to fight everybody including Cyborg but that she had to have hand surgery to deal with torn ligaments resulting from an earlier fight. Later, as the UFC was ostensibly trying to make a fight between the two, de Randamie would refuse to fight Cyborg, claiming that the former Invicta featherweight champion is a known cheater who can never lift the stain of circumventing the rules.With de Randamie out of the picture, the UFC instead has made a fight between Cyborg and Megan Anderson at UFC 214 for the newly vacant featherweight title. Anderson is the current Invicta featherweight champion, a title Cyborg held until earlier this year when she vacated to compete in the UFC full time. Anderson had won the interim Invicta belt by stopping Charmaine Tweet at Invicta FC 21. The change to Anderson makes this a fight between the two most established featherweights in the world today and, in Cyborg’s eyes, is an all-around better fight.“This fight against Megan is a big opportunity. She has the Invicta belt, which I vacated, so it’s a perfect match. It’s a real featherweight fight.”Cyborg faces Anderson in the co-main event of UFC 214 on July 29th in Anaheim, California.MUST-READ STORIESESPY.
