Inspired by the ancient Sanskrit word that describes “vigour of life”, Aujasya by The Leela is a wellness programme designed as an authentic and holistic journey. Built on the 2 Rs of well-being Restore- Food and Nutrition and Renew – Mindfulness, Aujasya aims at strengthening vitality or energy allowing guests to embrace an enriching and healthy lifestyle. The brand launched the first pillar Restore in partnership with food and nutrition consultant Dr Ankita Jalori last year.
The second pillar, Renew-Mindfulness, is built as an online platform which presents four segments of a balanced mind and body. Exclusively created by ThinkRight.me, these include Maitri (Loving Kindness), Samskara (Inner Refinement), Ekaa(Being One) and Sukh (Mind and Body Balance). Each segment consists of guided Meditation, Sound Healing and Yoga. Guests can seamlessly access these exclusively curated sessions during their stay at The Leela properties. The program also has a special section for children calledAujasya Junior that encourages children to take mindful steps towards a happier and calmer future.
The programme was introduced at an intimate event held at The Leela Palace in New Delhi, with a talk by spiritual mentor and guide, Sister BK Shivani focusing on the power of the mind and the importance of thinking right.
Speaking on the launch, Anjali Mehra, Chief Brand Officer and Senior Vice President Marketing, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts said, “The challenges of today’s world often lead to disruption in our lives. Through Aujasya by The Leela we have made a commitment to give control back to our guests and empower them to take informed choices towards prioritizing their wellbeing.
