WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII â Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk, renowned for its spacious accommodations in paradise, brings the art of yoga to its already abundant list of complimentary amenities.
Guests of this Hawaii resort now have the opportunity to participate in free one-hour yoga classes on the resort's Grand Lanai or practice yoga in the privacy of their suite with a new yoga video channel that has been added to the resort's in-suite television offerings.
âWellness is a guiding principle at Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk and our new yoga platform is an exciting extension of this,â said Susan Koehler, sales and marketing director for the resort. âA poolside morning yoga class is a glorious way to start the day and the new in-suite yoga offering enables our guests to find a bit of Zen in their own space.â
The âbasic yoga flowâ classes on the Grand Lanai are taught by a certified instructor and take place from 7 to 8 a.m. every Tuesday and Friday morning*. Yoga mats from Lululemon Athletic are provided free of charge, so no need to pack one! Having plenty of room to stretch out has always been a benefit of staying at Oahu's only all-suite resort; now with a one-hour yoga class looped into the Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk TV system on Channel 40, guests can utilize the living room space to enjoy the art of yoga.
The in-suite videos are taught by Hawaii residents, one being Lilly Barels, an accomplished yoga instructor, ambassador for Lululemon Athletic, professional dancer and high school physics teacher. She has been evolving her yoga practice in Hawaii since 2003, incorporating yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology as well as sacred path energy work.
"Like the serenity and peace found uniquely in Hawaii, yoga has the same potential to balance the practitioner,â said Barrels. âIt is my hope that the instruction will help foster a feeling of wellness on and off the mat for the guests of Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk.â
