The highly anticipated COMO Uma Canggu opened earlier this year in Bali, and it hasn’t taken long for the beachside resort to welcome in the brand’s signature holistic wellness programme, COMO Shambhala. The new retreats promote wellness from within, adding to COMO Uma Canggu’s existing fitness and surf programmes.
The retreat will be hosted in the resort’s wellness centre with all the facilities, therapies and experts needed for everything from a total wellness overhaul to total relaxation, gentle invigoration, or fitness maintenance. A combination of yoga and Pilates classes, COMO Shambhala treatments, Wellness Gym, resident specialists and teachers ensure that focus is given to both mind and body, with carefully administered techniques ensuring maximum efficacy and an overall holistic wellness experience.
Guests can start their day with a range of studio activities featuring various yoga styles, Pilates and meditation classes. These include the popular, slower-paced Yin Yoga for those who enjoy their asanas to a vigorous and challenging flow-sequenced Rocket Yoga. The COMO Pilates Reformer classes, as well as the small-group TRX sessions, are designed to achieve improved posture, strength and efficiency of movement. COMO Shambhala teaches all levels, from beginners to advanced practitioners who want to deepen their skill and understanding.
Guests can also utilise the light and airy COMO Shambhala Wellness Gym. This modern 2,700sq ft space features a comprehensive range of Life Fitness exercise machines, as well as TRX suspension training, CrossFit stations and a personal trainer available for private sessions. The gym facilities also include shower and steam rooms, robes, slippers and COMO Shambhala amenities for freshening up after a workout.
To complement the fitness elements of the retreat are the award-winning COMO Shambhala wellness treatments intended to nourish the mind as well as the body, using a combination of leading-edge science and traditional knowledge. These include an energising COMO Shambhala Bath, designed to refresh the skin through exfoliation, and an invigorating Taksu Massage, using transference of energy to increase blood circulation and relieve stress.
