Mauritius Wellness Festival by Heritage Resorts

From the 3rd to the 5th of May 2019, Heritage Resorts hosted the first edition of its Wellness Festival. The event, the region’s largest, has position Mauritius as a key destination for wellness holidays. In the gorgeous setting of Heritage Bel Ombre, international wellbeing experts took guests on an inspiring journey of exploration.

Reconnecting to nature
Physical activity is intrinsically linked to wellbeing. But rather than running a marathon, Heritage Resorts allowed guests to combine exercise, mindfulness and the great outdoors. A dream team of wellbeing gurus – including Hanna Barrett, one of London’s best-known bloggers and yogis; Austrian practitioner Jeannette Fuch; and some of Mauritius’ best teachers – have offered various types of yoga, Tai Chi, and the ultra-trendy practice of Qi Gong. Our experts also organised guided trail runs through areas including Chamarel, Le Morne, the Bel Ombre Biosphere Reserve, the Black River Gorges National Park and more.

Having fun
For those who wanted to experience yoga in a new way, the festival offered a range of playful alternatives to the classic vinyasas. Mauritian artists including Sarasvati Mallac, Norbert Planel, David Lagesse and Kim Siew accompanied classes with music and painting. Festival participants were able to try yoga on a Stand Up Paddle, or take Neo Jharee’s acroyoga class – a practice that combines the wisdom of yoga, the muscle of acrobatics and the benevolence of healing practices. Wellness is never as much fun as when you’re suspended in mid-air, floating on the calm waters of the lagoon or handling a paintbrush.  

Feeling fulfilled
The Mauritius Wellness Festival by Heritage Resorts has offered a wide range of conferences and workshops on personal development. Dr. Sandra Stallaert, Almarie Venter, Audrey Bracey Deegan and other renowned coaches have led sessions on SoulMapping, HeartMath, Life Balance, the Science of Sensations and other topics. Those seeking relaxation and healing were also able to take part in sound and vibration meditation sessions, practice their breathing with Dominique Lonchant, or try crystal healing. 

Healthy diet for physical and mental health

Healthy eating 
The science is clear: a healthy diet is essential to your physical and mental health. During the festival, Aurore Rouzzi offered classes on organic farming, nutritionist Sandra de Foucault clarified the harmful effects of sugar, and Marie-Sophie Lelouch allowed participants to discover the benefits of “gastRawnomy”. Since 2012, this naturopath and French chef has become a leading figure in the world of raw and plant-based nutrition, thanks in particular to her website L’Instant Cru and the delicious dishes she concocts for Parisian restaurant L’Alcazar.
