Cathay Pacific just sent out emails to their Marco Polo Club members announcing the opening of The Sanctuary by Pure Yoga wellness retreat in The Pier Business Class Lounge.
You can access Cathay’s website with information about the Pier Lounge here.
The email which was sent out a couple hours ago reads:
We’re pleased to announce the opening of The Sanctuary by Pure Yoga, the new wellness retreat in The Pier Business Class Lounge and the first dedicated yoga and meditation space at Hong Kong International Airport. Designed in partnership with Pure Yoga, The Sanctuary is the perfect place to stretch, relax, and rejuvenate body and mind before you fly – and this wellness experience will continue inflight and after you arrive in Hong Kong.
In the lounge
Relax to a meditation track as you sit in a cushioned pod. Or try ‘Trataka’ – a form of gazing meditation that will improve your focus and calm your mind. If you’d prefer to stretch, you can practice yoga at your own pace in the private yoga room or follow along with a Pure Yoga teacher on video. There’s also a seated stretching zone that offers guidance on different exercises to improve circulation and enhance joint mobility.Please click here for more details.
On your flight
In the air, you can extend your sense of peace with Travel Well with Yoga, a series of yoga and meditation videos by Pure on our inflight entertainment system.
After arriving in Hong Kong, you can recharge your body and mind with one-day access to any Pure Fitness centre or a choice of any Pure Yoga class – either on the day you arrive or the day after and up to 12 times in a calendar year. You can also choose to enjoy a 10-day, unlimited-access trial at Pure, or sign-up and upgrade privileges, including 50% off the joining fee, a complimentary upgrade to an All Asia package, and more.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Sanctuary by Pure Yoga before your next trip and hope you’ll enjoy a complete wellness journey with us.
It’s not entirely clear where inside the Pier lounge this facility is located and Cathay’s website doesn’t provide detailed information about that yet. At least it reads as if The Sanctuary is open already.
There are also some quiet rooms for meditation and relaxation available so especially if you have a long layover in Hong Kong this could be useful. The current sleeping cabins are still kinda noisy and the cabanas at The Wing ice cold inside.
Nice to see that Cathay Pacific improves their lounges and offers members additional benefits on the ground. More airlines should focus on offering fitness and well being options at their lounge facilities especially with all the F&B that’s usually on offer.
