Amanpuri launches inaugural immersion created & hosted by Maria Sharapova, the brand’s Global Wellness Ambassador. The first in Aman’s series of wellness immersions has been unveiled and is now available to book.
Hosted at Amanpuri, Aman’s flagship property situated on its own private peninsula on Phuket’s west coast, the Optimising Performance & Recovery Immersion will take place from 21-24 February 2024. The immersion combines mindfulness, movement, nutrition, and recovery practices to offer guests a wellbeing experience designed to support their commitment to the pursuit of professional and personal aspirations.
Curated and hosted in person by Maria Sharapova, utilising expertise and knowledge built during her decades of experience as an elite athlete, in combination with Amanpuri’s expert practitioners, the immersion has been developed to encourage guests of all fitness levels to consider the concept of performance and recovery as a holistic approach to wellbeing, equipping them with methods which can be brought into all areas of life to help them perform at the highest level.
This intimate immersion, with no more than eight participants, will incorporate an individual consultation with Amanpuri’s medical doctor, daily meditations and breathwork practices, performance sessions designed and led by Maria, recovery practices including IV treatment, hydro- facility treatments, and Aman Signature spa treatments. Additionally, Maria will lead daily hikes each morning prior to breakfast, and warm-up sessions ahead of performance activities will be led by Dr Jason Wersland, founder of Therabody, to ensure guests can learn the long-term benefits of warm up and recovery as vital tools to support overall performance.
Further to the activities and experiences, guests will enjoy several dining experiences, including daily breakfast which is tailored to the day’s forthcoming activities, alongside a welcome beach barbecue dinner and an exclusive farewell dining experience for the group. All menus are designed by Maria in conjunction with Aman’s Regional Executive Chef, Asia, Matteo Nardin, created to offer nourishment and support performance, maximising on the fresh, tropical, and locally sourced ingredients and flavours.
Speaking about the programme, Maria Sharapova, Global Wellness Ambassador for Aman, said: “I have been working closely with the Aman team over the last few months to develop a comprehensive programme and I am excited to finally bring it to life for guests at Amanpuri. As an athlete I was obsessive about optimising my performance and now that I am retired, I’ve realised that elite performance is not just for athletes but for all people who wish to optimise their lives around their career, family, and other pursuits. This bespoke programme will combine all the knowledge I gained in my career and provide a holistic itinerary of mindfulness, preparation, nutrition, and recovery focused activities.”
The Performance and Recovery Wellness Immersion hosted by Maria Sharapova at Amanpuri takes place from 21 – 24 February 2024, with further immersions across Aman destinations to be announced soon.
There are eight places available for participating guests of all fitness levels and bookings can be made via enquiry by emailing email@example.com. Further information can be found at www.aman.com/mariasharapova
