Joali Being

JOALI BEING announces Sanctum Wellbeing Residence from 28th April to 10th May 2024

JOALI BEING, the first wellbeing island of its kind in the Maldives, has announced a unique collaboration with  Sanctum, the internationally acclaimed mindful movement. The inaugural Sanctum Wellbeing Residence, offering  radical self-care and joyful healing immersions, is scheduled to take place in the Maldives, 28 April – 10 May 2024. Located on the pristine isle of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, JOALI BEING blends ancient wisdom and long-honoured  traditions with modern science, to take guests on a journey of self-discovery and transcendence. This nature-immersive  wellbeing island resort, designed to seamlessly blend with its natural surroundings and centred around the joyful feeling  of weightlessness, is committed to showcasing world-renowned wellbeing experts. 

In keeping with JOALI BEING’s core methodology and enhancing its offering to guests, the Sanctum Wellbeing  Residence will centre on a holistic and unmatched moving sequence, rooted in multidisciplinary forms of kundalini  yoga, martial arts, animalistic flow, breathwork and primal fitness with elements of HIIT. Harnessing the power of the  physical body to unlock individual potential on a holistic level, the method is curated to music to complement meditation  moments and aims to alter body frequencies within a class through mindful movement. The approach has been  scientifically proven to decrease anxiety levels and enhance overall self-worth.

The two-week immersive programme, crafted to empower the body and expand the mind, includes sunrise and sunset  rituals, mindful beach hikes, cathartic ocean dips, high-intensity workouts, immersive sound journeys, and dramatic  fire ceremonies. Guests can also gain insight and guidance from the Sanctum Founders and the island’s wellbeing  consultants and enjoy the resort’s signature treatments and bespoke wellbeing journeys, which have been curated around  JOALI BEING’s Four Pillars: Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy. Sanctum experts will work alongside JOALI  BEING’s long-established network of specialists to nourish guests and guide them on a journey of self-discovery and  renewal.  

Graeme Freeman, General Manager at JOALI BEING, commented: “We are thrilled to partner with such an innovative  movement and bring a new, transformative practice to our valued guests. 

Utilising our spectacular location, and enhancing our offering, our island of wellbeing and wonder will appeal to those  who are who are keen to push boundaries and unlock human potential, and who seek radical self-discovery.” 

Luuk Melisse, Sanctum Founder, added: “As the first dedicated wellbeing island of its kind in the region, JOALI BEING  is influenced by culture and widely recognised for its transformative wellbeing experiences, and we are therefore  delighted to collaborate on our inaugural residence in the Maldives. Our ambition is to lead the next generation of  retreats, bringing together the most authentic community of like-minded individuals, and the award-winning JOALI  BEING is aligned with this philosophy and offers the ideal locale to restore mental, spiritual, and physical balance.”
