Spa Talk: Deluxe Detox Yoga @ The Peninsula Spa

Instead of booking a flight ticket to Bali or Thailand to recharge and relax, retreat to The Peninsula Spa and take pleasure in a detox yoga session. Specially designed to combine yoga, Pilates and nutrition, the Deluxe Detox Yoga package helps to refresh your mind and nourish your body, leaving you fully prepared for a new week ahead.
Every third Saturday of each month, join Kasia Wilkos, an internationally qualified yoga and wellness instructor and the Director of the Peninsula Spa. An enthusiastic yogi, Wilkos, born in Poland, is pioneering a new fitness lifestyle concept focused on combining gym training, aqua fitness, yoga and Pilates. As a young mother herself, she has also adapted new forms of instruction, including pre-natal yoga, kids yoga as well as golf yoga, so you know you’re in good hands.
Start your journey with the 150 minutes of detox yoga exercises focused at the metabolism and core strength muscles building, followed by a refreshing detox smoothie. The detox yoga class includes meditation, detox breathing and mind relaxing techniques, all under the watchful eye of Wilkos. Set in the tranquil surroundings of the Peninsula’s swimming pool and outdoor balcony area, benefit from Wilkos’ vast experience, knowledge and passion as you continue your yogi learning. Guests are also welcome to enjoy a deliciously light, yet nourishing, lunch from the Naturally Peninsula menu, poolside.
The professional instruction of Wilkos, who is one of the only legitimate Iyengar yoga teachers in Shanghai, will energise your body and mind, so make sure that you don’t miss your chance to join her class in the luxury settings of the famous Peninsula hotel this month.
Detox Yoga is priced at RMB 680 (net per person) or RMB 1,100 (net per person for two days of workshops). It is available on the third Saturday of each month. The Peninsula Spa. 32 Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu, near Beijing Dong Lu. Tel: 2327 6599. Web: Email: [email protected]
