Standalone studio marks the start of Fivelements’ expansion into wellness destinations in the city
Today Fivelements announced plans to launch our first standalone Yoga & Sacred Arts city destination at the Times Square Building in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. This ‘urban retreat’, which will begin accepting memberships in the spring of 2019, marks the start of Fivelements’ expansion into city wellness destinations.
The Yoga & Sacred Arts city destinations will feature a rich collection of holistic practices aimed at fostering self-exploration, mental and physical health, and general wellbeing. Designed to cater to the growing corporate wellness clientele and the “urban wellness tribe”, Fivelements at Times Square will offer a diverse array of yoga and dynamic sacred arts practices, plant-powered nutrition, and integrative wellness programmes in various formats, ranging from classes to private sessions, corporate groups, workshops, events, and day retreats.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Fivelements has been named Eco-Hotel/Resort of the Year at the 2018 AsiaSpa Awards.
Hong Kong’s most anticipated spa and wellness event of the year, the 14th annual AsiaSpa Awards took place on November 15 at W Hong Kong with the glamorous occasion attended by representatives of the region’s outstanding brands.
A panel of 20 judges selected the best in the business across 26 categories. Awards were presented to spas, hotels and resorts, retreats and products recognised for raising the bar of product and treatment standards.
“To win Eco-Hotel/Resort of the Year is a big recognition and responsibility for all of us at Fivelements. Taking a hint from the Balinese concept of Tri Hita Karana, we envision sanctuaries for learning to love and respect life,” says Lahra Tatriele, Fivelements co-founder.
This year, Fivelements receives the Vision Style Award that is annually held to reveal the most beautiful hospitality properties in the world.
Winning “Eco-Champion of the Year” is a great honor for our team, because everything we do at Fivelements is to create positive change in the world.
On October 10 Fivelements has been announced as a winner of the Seven Stars Luxury Hospitality and Lifestyle Awards in the SPA sector.
Seven Stars Awards is created to praise the world’s most exceptional companies in the luxury hospitality and lifestyle field, which provide high-end product quality and excellent service.
All of us at Fivelements are thankful for being recognised for the third time in a row as one of the best SPA destinations in Indonesia by receiving this seal of excellence.
Raised in Brittany, France, where daily life is completely connected to the natural elements, the rhythms of the ocean and the changing weather, I grew up listening to nature, educated to feel the wind like a sailor in order to plan life and understand what directions to take.
Since I was a child, the connection with the water element has been my main source of wellbeing.
I’ve been travelling the world for several years, which forced me to create a bag of tools to maintain my balance in order not to lose myself and my health along the way.
We are delighted to announce that Fivelements has been nominated for 2018 AsiaSpa Awards in the following categories:
– Eco-Spa of the Year,
– Spa Cuisine of the Year,
– Eco-Hotel/Resort of the Year.
Created to acknowledge the leaders of the spa industry in Asia, AsiaSpa Awards celebrates the outstanding performance of regional spas and properties. We are thankful for the opportunity to be nominated for the Awards, being listed among the most prestigious spas and resorts of Asia.
This article’s aim is to help you get started with your own meditation practice. My favourite definition of yoga is: Yoga is Samadhi. Samadhi is a state of bliss and union with the infinite, which is arrived at through meditation. Yoga and meditation are therefore inextricably linked.
First of all, why should we meditate? On a practical, scientific level, meditation has been shown to improve concentration, reduce feelings of stress, decrease depression and improve immunity. It brings a feeling of calm and peace into our day and helps us deal with the demands of daily life. Some very compelling reasons to start a meditation practice!

When we think of yoga, we often picture pretzel-like bodily contortions, but yoga is much more than a set of exercises on a mat. Yoga is an integrated science for living life in which we can transform our feelings, reactions, beliefs, the very way in which our mind works. Asana (the physical postures of yoga) energetically and physically transform the body, preparing us for meditation, which ultimately leads to enlightenment and joy. Asana forms a useful entry point into this wider practice since working with the body is easier than approaching the esoteric aspects of the subtle body and mind.
It seems my whole motherhood, 18 years thus far (including the months in the womb), I continue to be privy to similar conversations with mothers from all over the globe, feeling challenged with not enough time for the self, let alone wellbeing. Whenever I’ve inquired about what mothers do for themselves, not surprising, most of us respond immediately with smiles…and sighs. In-between breast-feeding, family meal planning, organising logistics, producing the increasingly full schedules on any given day, cheering at soccer matches and music performances (or carrying the guilt of not), not to mention the millions of other tasks required from their paying jobs, women from around the world share a common challenge - not having enough time, or shall I say, not taking enough time for self-nurturing and personal wellbeing.
Just as the sun must shine and the bees must make honey, it is said that all beings must accept their dharma for order and harmony to exist in the world. If an individual is following their dharma, they are pursuing their truest calling, serving all other beings in the universe by playing their own unique role. In Buddhism, it is said that acting in this way is the path to enlightenment.
It can be difficult to grasp from a Western perspective, but I feel that living your dharma means to act in accordance with your divine purpose – you may even call it cosmic destiny. Since dharma is also closely related to the concept of duty and service to others (and in the Bhakti tradition, unconditional love), I feel that one's dharma can never be selfish.
