Aloka Wellness, which offers a digital platform for engaging with some of the world’s leading health, fitness and wellness practitioners, is exploring organizing wellness retreats in Jeddah, Al-Ula and Taif.
“The dynamic and multicultural makeup of Saudi Arabia and the Aloka Family is aligned with global trends and sustainable development goals. With the transition to affording its citizens increased access to wellness and fitness remedies, Aloka Wellness is primed to partner with the Saudi government through educational and civic systems and agencies to help facilitate related Vision 2030 objectives,” a statement said.
With tourism being a key driver in the Kingdom’s strategic planning, Aloka recognizes that wellness tourism is a fast-emerging sub-sector.
“Given the uncertainties related to COVID-19 and safety concerns for in-person gatherings, virtual retreats like the GLOW Live Retreat taking place between July 1 and 15 on Aloka’s Instagram page, provides a viable alternative, while promoting Saudi Arabia’s brand and highlighting its ongoing positive transformation,” it said.
Aloka’s founders — Asta Barry and Hélène Bégusseau — have been residing and working in Saudi Arabia and France. Working in these modern states has exposed the team to the unique opportunity to align their passion with the Saudi government’s Vision 2030 program to create an even healthier population and drive sustainable development initiatives to enhance overall quality of life in the Kingdom.
Customarily, researching and accessing a curated network of trained professionals relied on individual searches and subjective recommendations. Aloka Wellness individually engages and partners with health professionals globally to create a family network focused on providing ethical and experience-based curated sessions and information.
Every facet of human holistic well-being is catered to via a user-friendly website. Its services range from yoga, meditation, naturopathy, food and nutrition, health coaching, bodywork and fitness, martial arts, psychological and emotional therapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and other specialty practices to help attain overall work-life balance.
With nearly 100 wellness practitioners already partnered with, Aloka said it is focused on working with only the most respected and experienced industry professionals. Their mission is to create a global network of healers to provide universal access to sustainable well-being practices.
