As more resources are available, often for free, online or via apps and wearable technology, DIY wellness will go off the charts. Team sports, group retreats, home facials – if we had the time, access and finances to do them for real we probably would. Along with scores of others, MyPureYoga has an array of complimentary yoga classes available. “Nothing replaces the energy and atmosphere of a group class, and the personalised adjustments of an expert teacher,” says Atipatha of Pure Yoga. “However, MyPureYoga offers the next best thing when you can’t get to the studio.”
Apps and online videos can teach us how to eat, move and think for optimum health. Personal training via a wearable fitness tracker racks up data that pushes wearers to do ever better. Blending the boundaries between fitness and spa, foam rolling offers an increasingly popular way to release muscular tension. Yamuna Body Rolling workshops at Flex Studio in Hong Kong introduce students to an app that helps them include a daily practice at home.
