Active Body and Healthy Mind Weekend Escape at The Peninsula Bangkok

Bangkok’s top wellness program and best spa team.  
 
I recently had a chance to attend one of the greatest wellness festivals this year in Bangkok. Wellness Festival by The Peninsula Bangkok 2020 is a great combination between some wellness talks, workshops and activities/experiences. I have to admit that it helped me slow down my pace and helped me strengthen my body and my mind.

Mindfulness breathing exercise – Mediation to start your day
 
Breathing is very important as it is a crucial life force and affects our health. Every breath sustains the body through chest expansion and generates inner energy. When we inhale, we bring in fresh air which is a life force, and when we exhale, we release heat and waste. The right breathing technique promotes not only physical health, but also calmness and awareness, taking you to a desirable level of wellbeing. Learn proper breathing technique with a certified instructor and your body and mind will thank you.
