Whatcould be better, with the arrival of the warm season, than pampering yourself with wellness related to the beauty of nature awakening after winter? This is the idea behind Lefay’s 2020 wellness travel offering, which in its Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda has decided to base its new proposals on the concept of nature as a therapeutic experience.
Increasingly, in fact, academic studies confirm the benefits that come from a deep relationship with nature and time spent outdoors-and what better area than the beautiful setting of Lake Garda to apply these principles?
It is precisely on this basis that the Lefay SPA Method Scientific Committee and the Lefay Spa Team developed the new wellness proposal Man and Nature.
According to the program, the beautiful 11-hectare park in which the facility is located becomes an integral part of beneficial experiences, and is enriched with outdoor activities and experiences along the three outdoor trails
Wellness journeys: the energy-therapeutic garden
In fact, an energy-therapeutic garden christened as the Symbol of Life: designed in collaboration with landscape architects who are experts in Classical Chinese Medicine, this becomes the place where guests can engage in physical-energetic rebalancing activities, supervised by therapists specializing in holistic disciplines already provided for in the facility’s Health Programs, but also new features such as the Perception Walking, a walk that stimulates the conscious rediscovery of all the senses, the Mindfulness Meditation, a time of concentration devoted to focusing on the present and abandoning debilitating thoughts, and the Conscious Walking, which helps reprogram the internal organism.
Another great new feature of the park is the birth of new Natural Wellness trails, the Five Element Paths: built in line with the energy theory of the stations in the garden, they combine specific meditation activities with signature SPA massages that are customized to the guest’s needs.
Options include Green Dragon, indicated for those prone to nervousness; Red Phoenix, for those suffering from anxiety; White Tiger, to combat sadness and melancholy; and Black Turtle, recommended for eliminating stress.
It proposes a real contact with nature, even deeper, the route The Shape and Color: is nestled among the centuries-old trees in the park and is an open-air gym that offers equipment and machines designed for outdoor exercise, as well as the opportunity to be accompanied by experienced Lefay SPA trainers.
The package also concludes with a proposal for running enthusiasts: the running route was designed for them. In the Rhythm of Steps, which winds for 2 km through hills and forest, with an elevation gain of about 150 meters and a series of wonderful scenery on the water and mountains of Garda.
