Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao Celebrates Global Wellness Day With a Healthy Lifestyle for an “Escape" from Within

 Qingdao, China, 20 June 2016 –Established in Turkey in 2012, “Global Wellness Day” is held every year on the second Saturday of June as the first international day dedicated to living well. Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao has been particularly active in celebrating "Global Wellness Day" ever since. Following the launch of its “Free Open Day” at the Health Club on June 11, Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao celebrated “Global Wellness Day” with a range of outdoor-themed activities on June 18, encouraging guests and local residents to engage in a green, healthy lifestyle in pursuit of an “escape” from within.

On this day, Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao invited 80 guests and Health Club members to enjoy a “Stride by the Seaside”. Such simple, efficient aerobics were a great way to motivate them to develop healthy exercise habits. “Stride by the Seaside” was approximately five kilometres (round-trip), starting from May 4th Square and running along the coast to “Cislunar” Sculpture Square. This trip also saw participants doing dance fitness aerobics on Music Square, a total show-stopper drawing huge crowds. Environmentally-friendly cups and water were offered in a move to promote the idea of sustainability by using green cups instead of plastic water bottles.

Back at the Health Club, after nearly two hours of outdoor aerobics, participants joined a meditation yoga session at the tennis court under the instruction of the coach and learned to find their inner calm and peace while being fully immersed in a world of well-being. Then, after health lunch was offered, Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao staff guided participants on how to best control their food calorie-intake and have a balanced diet.

Through “Global Wellness Day”, Shangri-La Hotel, Qingdao aimed to spread the message of adopting a positive and healthy lifestyle. All guests who participated in this event said they gained new insights into the idea of a healthy lifestyle and how they can go about living more fulfilling and meaningful lives every day.
