The Embassy Suites located along the Waikiki Beach Walk in Honolulu has now added complimentary yoga to its list of amenities for guests. With two new avenues for this peaceful practice, visitors can get their daily stretching, posing, and breathing yoga techniques in while on vacation. The hotel offers a one-hour class that takes place on the Grand Lanai every Tuesday and Friday morning, from 7:00am-8:00am. Yoga mats are provided for guests and the class follows the basic vanyasa flow structure.
For those not interested in attending a class, you can still get some yoga practice in while vacationing on Oahu. The hotel also offers a new video channel where you can choose yoga classes based on your level and ability, and enjoy a private yoga session in the comfort of your own hotel room. Led by yoga instructor and professional dancer, Lily Barrels, she has been avidly fine-tuning her yoga practice since 2003 and is a local Hawaii resident. “Like the serenity and peace found uniquely in Hawaii, yoga has the same potential to balance the practitioner,” Lily says. “It is my hope that the instruction will help foster a feeling of wellness on and off the mat for the guests of Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk.”
Susan Koehler, sales and marketing director for the Waikiki Embassy Suites, says that the resort strives to offer guests amenities of well-being, comfort, and a unique tropical experience. “Wellness is a guiding principle at Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk and our new yoga platform is an exciting extension of this. A poolside morning yoga class is a glorious way to start the day and the new in-suite yoga offering enables our guests to find a bit of Zen in their own space.”
